The State’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the casualties, noting that the assailants killed three under-aged children.

The attack, which came barely 24 hours after two persons were killed in Owode Ketu, has created tension across the area and beyond, as investigations showed that the Fulani herdsmen have found their way to border communities in the state.

Buildings were touched, crop barns, vehicle and generators set ablaze with no resistance from these defenceless residents.
