Killer Herdsmen: This is one killing too many – Gov. Fayemi says as he pays condolence visit to families of slain farmers
Ekiti State governor, Kayode Fayemi has reassured citizens of the State that the killers of two farmers in the State on Saturday will be brought to book.
Fayemi in a statement on Sunday after paying a condolence visit to the families of the slain farmers said, “This is one killing too many and we must do all we can to protect all citizens”.
According to Fayemi, “yesterday, two of our farmers from Isaba Ekiti, Mr Toyin Akeju known locally as Jisoro and Mr Yusuf Onuche were found dead on the farms with wounds from gun shots suspected to have been fired by Bororo herdsmen. This, understandably, generated a lot of anger in the community”.
“This morning I visited the families of the deceased in the community. In offering commiserations of the government and all our people, I reassured them that we will get to the bottom of this sad occurrence and bring all the criminals involved to book”.
“May the souls of the departed rest in peace. Amen”, he said.
