Suspected herdsmen have struck again in the dreaded Ife-Ibadan expressway, killing a civil servant, Mr. Adenipekun Ademiju, popularly called Okere.
This is coming roughly after a month that one Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, Ile-Ife lecturer, Professor Olayinka Adegbehingbe was kidnapped by gunmen near Ikire along ife/Ibadan Expressway, Raidar News reports.
Okere, a member of staff of Atakunmosa West Local Government Area of Osun State, boarded a private vehicle at Osu, on his way to Ibadan before the unfortunate incident occurred at Ikire. The assailants robbed commuters before they murdered Ademiju.
An eyewitness said Ademiju was shot dead when the robbers shot indiscriminately at vehicles to forcefully stop them. “The man was killed by Fulani herdsmen who normally rob on this road. Two of them were in the car, I think the bullets missed the target, who is the driver and killed the man. The robbers dropped the body on the highway and went away with the car,” he said.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in the state, SP Folashade Odoro, who confirmed the incident, said police are still investigating the matter.
Meanwhile, calm is said to have returned to Ifewara in Atakunmomosa West local government area of Osun where the Yoruba and Hausa community engaged in a violent clash on Tuesday evening.
There was a heavy presence of armed policemen at strategic locations including Ife and Ilesa roads and the main gate of the monarch’s palace in the town. The Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Ige, on Tuesday, had drafted policemen to the area to restore peace.
