Three farmers in Oyan in Odo-Otin North Local Council Development Area of the State of Osun were yesterday attacked by some herdsmen.

The same-father farmers, Opeyemi, Nathaniel and Friday Joseph said the herdsmen attacked them around 7pm on Saturday on their farm in Afoyin, Erin-Ile, Kwara State.

According to Opeyemi who spoke with OSUN DEFENDER today, the herders were “bororo” and not Fulani.

He said they invaded their maize and cassava farm with cattle and started grazing on it.

Opeyemi said the herders attacked him and his brothers with the sticks in their hands after pleading with them to take their cattle away.

According to him, he and Nathaniel sustained injury on their heads during the attack while the herdsmen ran away.

He said he has reported the case to the Oloyan Of Oyan, Oba Kelani Adekeye who advised that they should approach a police station and the palace of Elerin of Erin-Ile since the case happened on his land.

Oba Adekeye could not be reached on phone as at the time of filing this report but a source in the palace confirmed the report.
