Fulani herdsmen have again invaded the farm of the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Chief Olu Falae, in Akure, killing one of his security guards.

A reliable source hinted that the herdsmen stormed the farm located at Ilado in Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo state, kidnapped the security guard and later killed him.

The corpse of the security guard, according to the source was later discovered inside a pool of water which is few kilometers to the farm.

It was gathered that the herdsmen invaded the farm last weekend and they were restricted by the security guards engaged by Falae following incessant inva­sion of the farm.

The herdsmen according to sources retreated only to surface again and report­edly kidnapped one of the security guards on the farm who was later killed.

The matter was reported at the state police command and a search party was organised following which his corpse was discovered.

The state police command which had sent out invitation for a press briefing to newsmen in the state yesterday abruptly cancelled it.

The state Commissioner of Police, Mrs Hilda Harrison, did not give any reason for the cancellation of the media briefing.

The Police Image Maker, Mr Femi Joseph, declined comment on the recent attack and killing of the security guard of the former Finance Minister.

Joseph said that all the questions should be directed to the Police Commissioner.

Also, the Personal Assistant to chief Falae, Mr Moshood Adekunle Raji said that the matter is a criminal matter and would be handled by the state Police Command.

Raji said he cannot comment on the development because the police are still investigating the matter. (Saturday Sun)
