Some gunmen numbering about seven have invaded another farm in Oyo State.

It was gathered on Friday that a farm customer, an indigene of Benue State from Igede tribe was killed during the invasion of the farm located at Fiditi, one of the towns in Afijio Local Government Area of the State.

Our correspondent gathered from sources that the farm customer was shot dead when the gunmen stormed the farm on Wednesday.

During the invasion, a security guard in the farm identified as Felix, an indigene of Plateau State was abducted. The security guard later escaped in the early hours of Thursday.

It was gathered that the gunmen arrived at the farm at the time the workers were closing for the day with five of them armed with AK-47 rifles and other guns.

It was learnt that they searched for victims to kidnap, with one of them targeting the farm manager, Mr Adelakun Sunday, at the time he was about leaving his office.

This made the manager to quickly retreat to his office, locked the door, ran to his toilet and climbed up the ceiling to hide.

It was further gathered that the manager and others discovered the dead body of the farm customer during a search around the farm.

The deceased, who was said to have come to the farm on his Bajaj motorcycle, had bought two dead chickens, which he had put in a sack, before he met his death.

Three expended shells of AK-47 rifle bullets and one empty cartridge shell were found at the scene.

Saga Gist recalls that the attack on the farm is coming a few weeks after some gunmen abducted son of a farm owner in Apete area of Ibadan.

The son of the farm owner, Mr Odetunde was released after spending a few days in the kidnappers’ den.

Public Relations Officer of the State Police Command, Mr Olugbenga Fadeyi, confirmed the latest attack on the farm to journalists on Friday.

Fadeyi attributed the escape of the victim to pressure put on the abductors by the police through continuous search for the criminals who tried to hide to evade arrest.

He confirmed that the body of the deceased had been deposited in a mortuary at the State Hospital, Oyo, for autopsy.

Fadeyi added that investigation had commenced into the incident.
