The deceased, a graduate of Animal Production and Health from the Federal University of Technology, Akure, was reportedly shot dead on the premises of the Tuns farm by the hoodlums that attacked and looted the company on Saturday.
A statement by the Managing Director of the company, Mr. Taofeek Badmus, said the deceased, until his death, served as his Personal Assistant for the Tuns farm before his life was cut short by hoodlums.
Badmus in his statement also said many employees of the company that were at their duty post when the hoodlums attacked the company were injured.
He said, “He was mainly attacked due to what we suspect that he could identify most of the looters and their instigators.”
On their arrival, we made efforts to let them know that there was no COVID-19 palliative stored at our warehouses, but rather some mosquito nets were being stored by the Ministry of Health, Osun, which were been shared across the state.
“The situation took another dimension when they started to break into our other facilities, which were our Biscuit Production Unit, Bakery and Further Processing Units, and our bottled water facility, where they carted away our raw materials, finished products, gadgets, machines and valuable assets of the company.”
