by on March 22, 2017
About four persons have been report­edly killed in a clash that erupted between the residents of Yakira com­munity in the Baruten local government area of Kwara State and suspected herds­men.
It was alleged that the community killed three herders in retaliation to the killing of an indigene.
The man, whose corpse was found in his farm, had earlier reportedly com­plained of incessant grazing of cattle on his farm.
It was gathered that when the farmer confronted the herdsmen in his farm, they pounced on him, slaugh­tered him and dumped his body in the farm.
Some angry youths in the area mobilized them­selves and traced the herd­ers to the bush and report­edly killed three of them.
Alhaji Musa Buge, the Chairman of the Tran­sitional Implementation Committee for the council, who confirmed the kill­ings to newsmen yesterday, said efforts were ongoing to settle the fued between the visitors and the host com­munity.
Buge said arrangement was ongoing to have a secu­rity meeting of the council to work out a way to fore­stall future occurrence.
Spokesman of Kwara State Police Command, Ajayi Okasanmi, who also confirmed the killings, said he was not sure of the num­ber of casualty at the mo­ment.
