There was confusion in Irun Akoko , Akoko North West Council Area as the lifeless body of a 70 year old farmer , Raphael Ojo Osayintuyi was discovered on his farm.
There were rumours that the old man was killed after having an altercation with some herdsmen whose cattle destroyed his crops while another story was that an herdsman came to the farm camp to report seeing the lifeless body of the late osanyintuyi.
This was said to have flared up anger in the people who thereafter attacked the herdsman alleging him of hacking the farmer to death.
The case was later reported at Irun Akoko divisional police station from where officers went to evacuate the corpse from the farm.
Speaking on the incident , the divisional police officer in charge of Irun Akoko , Chief Superintendent of Police, CSP Gbenga Ogunleye disclosed that the corpse had been taken to the mortuary at the state specialist hospital Ikare Akoko with the wounded herdsman also taken to the hospital while investigation continues.#
