Tension as Fulani Herdsman Kills Farmer in Oyo over Cattle

A Fulani herdsman at the weekend killed his landlord, Musliu Aliu at Igbeti in the Oke-Ogun area of Oyo State, leading to a heightened tension between indigenes and the herdsmen.

A woman was also stabbed in the stomach and had been hospitalised, while about 19 houses were said to have been razed in the aftermath of the incident.

Chairman of Igbeti community, Alhaji Alawode Jimoh Fasina, said the indigenes of the town had warned the deceased not to accommodate the herdsman who has many cows in the area.

He said: “Aliu [the landlord] went to his farm where he had preserved some yam seedlings for planting. But the cows ate some tubers of yam, which resorted into a quarrel between them. The herdsman accused the deceased of poisoning his cows, who he said were discharging bile.
“The deceased told us he was going to report the incident to the police. But we learnt that he went to his farm to plant the yamseedlings. It was in the process that the herdsman attacked and killed him.”

In another incident, a woman was attacked by a Fulani man, who she said was trying to rob her.

According to the woman, the herdsman tried to forcefully grabbed her purse in which she had some money, but when she resisted, he tried to cut her purse which she tied to her waist with a dagger and in the process, the dagger pierced her stomach and gouge out her intestines. She is in the hospital.

However, in his response to the allegation of murder, leader of Fulani herdsmen in the area, Alhaji Saliu Kadiri who is also the National Chairman, Jamu Nati Fulbe Association of Nigeria, alleged that the deceased farmer poisoned his crops which the cattle ate and that led to its death.

“The herdsman reported the case and the following day, the man was found dead. He was not stabbed and there were no stab wounds on him. His tubers of yam were also burnt. Only my God knows who killed him,” he said.

When contacted, Police Public Relations Officers, Oyo Command, DSP Adekunle Ajisebutu, told Guardian that the herdsman who killed the farmer was still at large.

These fulani herdsmen can not come all the way from the north and cause terror here. If you live in a strange land,you imbibe their culture and lay low coz it ain't your land.I'm in PHC but I can't just pick up a fight with an indigene here. These occurences are way too much these days and can be a major reason for our disintegration soon.

Too bad the only reward you could pay the one who shelters you is killing which is too bad.As you treasures your cattle so also he treasured his crops.
