The police in Ogun State have arrested two Fulani herdsmen for allegedly killing one of their kinsmen in an attempt to steal his cow at Itadodo area of Ofada in Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of the state.
The suspects, Abdulahi Anaruwa and Mohammed Suleiman, met the victim, Garuba Mohammed, while grazing his cattle along with two of his kinsmen and lured him into a nearby bush, where they hacked him to death.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said luck, however, ran out on the suspects, when a commercial motorcycle rider, popularly called okada, saw them and alerted the people of the area, who in turn called the police.
Oyeyemi, an assistant superintendent of police added that the Divisional Police Officer of Owode Egba, CSP Sheu Alao, led his men to the scene and arrested the two suspects.
He said that the State Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, had ordered the immediate transfer of the suspects to the Homicide Section of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligent Department for further investigation.
“The CP further warned that crime and criminality will have no place in Ogun State and that those who are hell bent in committing crimes will have the ever ready police command to contend with,” the PPRO said.
