We’ll Soon Apprehend Those Behind Attack On Falae’s Farm, Death Of Guard – Police

280216-Police-Logo-696x522The Ondo State Police Command has confirmed the attack on Chief Olu Falae’s farm along Igbatoro Road in Akure, the Ondo State capital penultimate Saturday.
Mr. Falae, a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, has recently been a victim of untoward happenings.
Last October, he was abducted on the same farm by Fulani herdsmen and spent days in captivity before he was released after his family reportedly paid a ransom of N5 million. The alleged abductors were subsequently arrested by the Department of State Services, DSS, and have been charged to court.
In the latest attack on his farm said to have been perpetrated by yet another group of herdsmen numbering about 10, one of the security guards, a member of the Oodu’a Peoples Congress, OPC, was subdued and taken away but his lifeless body was found a day later at a pool, a few kilometres from the farm.
Confirming the attack yesterday in a chat with PREMIUM TIMES, the Ondo Police Command’s spokesman, Femi Joseph, said they are yet to confirm if the masterminds were actually herdsmen.
He, however, said that the police were on the trail of the hoodlums.
“Our men are searching for those who perpetrated the act and I am sure they will soon be found”, Mr. Joseph, an Assistant Superintendent of Police, ASP, said.
“We cannot tell now whether they are Fulani herdsmen or not, when we get them we will know what ethnic group they belong”, he added.
The police spokesman also assured that the command had provided adequate security for the elder statesman.
