Fulani herdsmen attack farmer, cut arm

From Jimoh Ahmed,Owo

A 65 -year-old farmer, Joseph Christopher, was on Sunday attacked by some Fulani herdsmen in his farm.

The incident which took place at Balogun Camp, a farm settlement along Ute Road, Owo, headquarters of Owo Local Government of Ondo happened at about 8.30am on that day.

According to The Hope Metro findings, the herdsmen who were earlier denied the purchase of local gin (Ogogoro), at another farm settlement near the area, later surfaced at Balogun Camp.

The attackers, it was learnt, dealt several matchet blows on their victim which left his left arm severed off.

Narrating his ordeal to The Hope Metro on his sick bed at the Federal Medical Centre, Owo, Joseph, a native of Onitcha-Okwuanj in Delta State, said he was on the farm on the fateful day when the three men emerged from the bush.

According to him, the thought that came across his mind was that the men needed his assistance, but in his attempt to inquire from them what they needed, the next thing he heard was a heavy blow of their cutlass on him.

He disclosed that his left hand fell down just after one blow of the matchet.

Narrating his ordeal further, he said he was further attacked with the cutlass while he tried to escape.

On how he knew his attackers were Fulani men, Joseph said their intonation, accent  and mode of dressing were  conspicuous.

He, however said he managed to escape from his assailants and was later rescued by other farmers in the settlement who later took him to the hospital.

    You have never seen anything. You are all clamoring for Tinubu to become your next president there and then Mc oluomo will release his killers squad to compliment fulani hearders agenda . Hopefully you will then realise how far your gullibility has taken you to.
