Ogun Youth Group Angry With Amosun Over Death Of Woman

0
Suspected herdsmen allegedly gang-raped a woman and
subsequently hacked her to death in Asa village, Oja Odan area, Yewa North
Local Government Ogun State​, police said.​
The victim was allegedly attacked on Saturday leading a ​
group​ Ketu Advancement Front to forward a petition to the authorities in the
state.
The petition signed by the forum coordinator and secretary,
Kunle Abiose​,​ and Joseph Bankole, accused the state Governor, Ibikunle
Amosun​,​ of neglecting the security ​of ​the lives and property of the Ketu
people.

“For the umpteenth time, we members of Ketu Advancement
Front want to register our strongest protest with the Government of Senator
Ibikunle Amosun over her callous abdication of her constitutional
responsibility of ensuring the security of lives of Ketu People from wanton
killing by marauding herdsmen”.
The group said it was sad the woman was raped and killed in
her farm.
They alleged that “on sighting her entering the farm, the
killer-herdsmen who had taken over her farm, pounced on her, probably
gang-raped her before hacking her to death”.
The group said 24 other people have been killed by herdsmen
in dehumanising circumstance and added that the “latest in the series of the
ceaseless murder cases had been reported at the Oja-Odan Police Station for
anybody to confirm”.
“Our displeasure is premised on the fact that despite our
un-abating protest, including the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with
government and the herdsmen in 2014, the government which has the overall duty
of providing security and ensuring peace of our people has turned deaf ears and
blind eyes to our people’s plight,”the petitioners lamented.
When contacted, the Ogun State Police Command Public
Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi confirmed the discovery of the woman’s corpse
in the bush but said it has not been established that she was killed by Fulani
herdsmen.
Mr. Adejobi, however, said it might be a reprisal killing by
the Fulani herdsmen because “a few days ago a corpse of a Fulani man was found
in the bush in the same axis.”

He added that, the command had summoned the Yoruba and
Fulani leaders in the area to a truce meeting on Tuesday at the command
headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta.
