Herdsmen Kill Civil Servant Heading To Ibadan To Spend Holiday With Family On Ife Ibadan Expressway

A civil servant in Osun State, Mr. Adenipekun Ademiju, was killed today by some suspected Fulani gunmen operating on Ife-Ibadan expressway.

The gunmen suspected to be herdsmen were said to have attempted to rob motorists at Ikire when the victim’s vehicle ran into them.

Ademiju aka Okere, a staff of Atakunmosa West Local Government, reportedly boarded a private vehicle at Osu, to go and spend the public holiday with his family in Ibadan, Oyo State when stray bullets of the bandits hit him.

An eyewitness account revealed that the bullets hit the deceased on the head.

The eyewitness, who preferred not to be named, said:

“The man was killed by herdsmen, who normally rob on this road.

“Two of them were in the car. I think the bullets missed the gun men’s 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.”

Meanwhile, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Folashade Odoro, said police have commenced investigation into the matter.

    I think this is high time for Federal govt to allow state police to operate in various states,the strength of Nig police force can no longer withstand the security trend.Herdsmen are human being not ghost,pls we’re calling on all stakeholders to provide lasting solution to this menace before it gets out of hands.This is a well-known vibrant brother serving the Federal Republic of Nig with a promising future got his cut short untimely by nonchalant in the of our so-called govt.Adenipekun Ademiju rest on,may ur spirit never forgive the perpetrators.

    And these so called herdsmen began to gain more ground in South west. Our government should find something to do about it until things became worse than this. Still saw him last Sunday. I will personally miss you my brother. May his soul rest in peace.

      Not only the south west but the entire south because of imbeciles that have no balls to defend their people but enjoy the glory of leadership.

    Really sad. Which report do we believe? The police says the roads are safe but the killing of this innocent civil servant along Ife-Ibadan road confirms otherwise. God save us oh!
