Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, has ordered the im­mediate arrest of seven young men alleged to have attacked a herdsman, simply identified as Ibra­him and killing four of his cows.

The young men, (names with­held) were found to be among about 100 youths of Igogo-Ekiti com­munity who allegedly attacked the herdsman and killed four of his cows while they were grazing.

The governor also directed for a thorough investigation by the po-lice to get to the root of the alleged attack on the herdsman and his cows.

It would be recalled that over 100 angry youths of the community al­legedly attacked Ibrahim while his cows were grazing in the community a few days ago. The youths were said to have allegedly shot Ibrahim but the local rifle refused to fire at him due to a speculation that the herds­man had fortified himself with some traditional charms.

The assailants therefore shot four of his cows.

In another related development, it was learnt that a dispute over a chieftaincy title, the Ashaba, has brought tension and breakdown of law and order.

Some security operatives de­tailed to restore order in the com­muni-ty were accused of alleg­edly shooting a teenager, who died from serious gunshot injuries.

Governor Fayose who sum­moned a meeting with people and leaders of the town, ordered arrest of the seven youths, im­posed a three-day dusk to dawn curfew on the community and awarded a sum of five million Naira, (N5 Million) to the parents of the lad who was allegedly shot dead by a trigger-happy security personnel.
