According to DailyPost, House of Assembly member representing Ketu Constituency, Hon Wahab Haruna Abiodun, also confirmed the inscident, saying, “It is so sad that Ketu Constituency is bathing in the blood of constituents.”

Hon Haruna explained that, “Fulani herders attacked Owode ketu in Eggua ward and killed no fewer than six people, leaving scores seriously injured.”

The lawmamker said that two other farmers, after being matcheted, were thrown into Yewa River along Eggua road from the bridge.

“This was a reprisal attack by herdsmen as they came in hundreds following the visitation of Sunday Igboho to the area,” he said.

He called on Governor Dapo Abiodun to instruct the Police Commissioner in Ogun State and other security agents to move swiftly to the area so that the issue will not escalate further, saying “this is the time we need the Amotekun corps to come out and support the Nigeria Police Force.”

The incident is coming barely four days after the killing of a farmer, Dele Olowoniyi, by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Yewa axis of Ogun State.

Olowoniyi was slaughtered in Oha village, Imeko around 1:30am on Sunday.
