Some unidentified armed men suspected to be Fulani herdsmen, on Monday, ambushed a local vigilante group on routine patrol in Oko-Obbo-Ile, Ekiti Local Government Area of Kwara State.

The attack occurred at about 2030pm in the community leaving a member of the vigilante team identified as Mashud Taye seriously injured from machete cuts by the herdsmen.

One of the herdsmen, Abdulkadir Ali Doogo, 23, from Omu-Aran, was arrested but his partner disappeared into the bush after the attack which occurred along the Obbo-ile-Isapa axis.

Abdulkadir is now helping operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, Kwara State Command in their investigations.

Spokesman of the command, Babawale Afolabi, disclosed in Ilorin, on Tuesday that the attack occurred when men of the Obbo-Ile vigilante team were on routine patrol in the area.

“On Monday, November 22, 2021, two armed herdsmen attacked a vigilante team of Obbo-Ile community on a routine patrol and left one of them with a serious injury as a result of a machete attack,” he said.

The spokesman disclosed that “efforts of the NSCDC operatives yielded dividends, as one of the assailants, Abdulkadir Ali Doogo, 23, from Omu-Aran, was arrested and currently helping the NSCDC in further investigations.”

He said the other herdsman is still at large and efforts are ongoing to capture him, while the injured victim is responding to treatment in the hospital.
