Suspected Fulani herdsmen on Wednesday morning robbed commuters along Ife -Ibadan express way, killing a civil servant, Mr Adenipekun Ademiju
Ademiju, popularly called Okere, a staff of Atakumosa West Local Government of the state boarded a private vehicle at Osu, on his way to Ibadan before the incident happened at Ikire.
According to an eyewitness, Ademiju was shot dead as the robbers shot indiscriminately at vehicles to forcefully stop them.
” The man killed by Fulani herdsmen who normally rob on this road, two of them were in the car, I think the bullets missed the target, who is the driver of the car before killing the man.
“The robbers dropped the corpse on the highway and went away with the car”.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the State, SP Folashade Odoro who confirmed the incident to journalists, said police are still investigating the matter.
Herdsmen and other criminal gangs have launched deadly attacks on highways in parts of the country in recent years, making travelling a risky venture nationwide.
Kidnappers have similarly, descended on hapless citizens in full force but the Federal Government has equally descended on the criminal elements, making life unbearable for them.
