Armed Herdsmen Razed Down Olu Falae’s Farm In Ondo, Attack Workers
Some armed herdsmen reportedly invaded the farm of the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Chief Olu Falae, and attacked some of his workers.
The herdsmen were said to have destroyed the maize farm of Chief Falae, before moving to the citrus farm and set it on fire.
Apart from destroying the farm, the herdsmen also reportedly invaded the farm house in the middle of the night and attacked the workers.
Confirming the development, the personal assistant to Chief Falae, Captain Moshood Raji (retd.), said the herdsmen and their cows destroyed the maize farm.
He said crops worth millions of naira were destroyed as the invaders grazed their cattle.
When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Tee-Leo Ikoro, said he was not aware of the incident.
Recall that Chief Falae was abducted by armed herdsmen in September 2015.
The abductors of the elder statesman demanded payment of N100 million ransom for his release, but they were paid N5million.
Weeks later, the Nigeria Police Force announced that they have arrested six herdsmen who abducted Chief Falae.
According to a police statement, the kidnappers were arrested in Ekiti and Niger states following a tip-off.
