A 56-year-old farmer, Babarinde Mufutau, has been found dead.

Mufutau, a native of Tapa, Ibarapa North, local government, Oyo State was said to have been attacked at Orita Meta, Konko Village, Ayete, area of the same council area around 7pn on Wednesday.

The attack allegedly perpetrated by suspected herders was carried out while the deceased was on his way home from the farm.

Confirming the development, the Secretary of Farmers (Akowe Agbe), Ibarapa North, Mr Taiwo Adeagbo said the farmer died as a result of machete cuts on his body.

He added the deceased suffered serious deep machete cuts on the back, hands while his right leg was cut.

He said the victim bled to death as a result of the deep injuries inflicted on him as well as inability of anyone to come to his rescue after the attack.

He alleged the suspected herders are at large, while adding that investigation was still ongoing on the matter.

Efforts to confirm the story from the Oyo State Police Command proved abortive as the telephone numbers of the Commands Spokesperson, Adewale Osifeso, Deputy Superintendent of Police was said to be ‘switched off’ as at the time of filing the report. (TheNation)
