A 80-year-old cocoa farmer at Idominasi village in Osun State, Chief Sule Oladepo, has called on the state government and security agencies to arrest land grabbers who destroyed his cocoa farm and chased him away from the village.
Oladepo said he hails from Osogbo but he has been farming at Idominasi village since 1970, adding that he married a daughter of a prominent farmer in the village, Chief Gabriel Ibironke.
He explained that his father in-law gave him the farm where he planted his cocoa and other crops while his wife also inherited a cocoa farm from her father after his death.
Oladepo said: “I gave them land to build school on it but they moved into my cocoa farm with a bulldozer and destroyed my cocoa. They sold the land to some people and they are now building some structures on it.”
He called on the state governor, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, to assist him to recover his farm.
