Suspected Fulani Herdsmen Attack Falae’s Farm Again, Kill His Security Guard

Some suspected fulani herdsmen have invaded the farm of the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation SGF, Chief Olu Falae killing one of his Oodua Peoples Congress OPC security guard.
LEADERSHIP weekend investigation revealed that the herdsmen stormed the elderstateman farm located at Ilado in Akure North area of Ondo state and abducted one of the security guard.
It was also learnt that the corpse of the security man was later found  some days after he was abducted inside a pool of water which is few kilometers to the farm.
A reliable source informed our correspondent that the herdsmen had invaded the farm last weekend and they were restricted by the security guards engaged by the Afenifere chieftain following incessant invasion of the farm.
According to sources, the herdsmen retreated only to surface again and reportedly kidnapped one of the security guards on the farm.
It was also gathered by our correspondent that the matter was reported at the state police command and a search party was organised following which his corpse was discovered few days later.
When contacted, the Police  Public Relations Officer, PPRO , Femi Joseph declined comment on the recent attack and killing of the security guard of the elderstateman.
According to the police spokesman, all the questions should be directed to the Police Commissioner.
Meanwhile, the state police command had earlier scheduled a Press briefing to newsmen in the state yesterday which was abruptly cancelled.
Commissioner of police Hilda Harrison did not give any reason for the cancellation of the media briefing.
But sources at the state Police Command said that the assignment may have been halted because the Commissioner has no approval from the Inspector General of Police.
Speaking on the matter, the Personal. Assistant PA to the Afenifer chieftain, Moshood Adekunle Raji said that the matter would be handled by the state police authority.
While declining to comment further on the development, Raji said the police are still investigating the matter.
