No fewer than 10 Fulani herdsmen again invaded the farm of the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Chief Olu Falae, killing one of his Oodua Peoples Congress, (OPC) security guards.
It would be recalled that five fulani herdsmen are currently standing trial at the state High Court over the kidnap o f Chief Falae in October last year.
The state government paid N5m as ransom to the kidnappers before the politician was released.
The identity of the dead OPC member could not be ascertained last night.
Huhu source in Akure gathered that the herdsmen stormed the farm located at Ilado in Akure North area of Ondo State and kidnapped the security guard.
His corpse was discovered a few days ago inside a pool of water, a 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 the politician following incessant invasion of the farm.
The herdsmen, according to sources, retreated only to surface again, kidnapping one of the security guards on the farm. It was learnt that the matter was reported at the state police command and a search party was organized following which his corpse was discovered days later.
The state police command which had sent out invitation for a Press briefing to newsmen in the state yesterday abruptly cancelled it.
Commissioner of Police in the state, Hilda Harrison did not give any reason for the cancellation of the media briefing.
But sources at the state Police Command said that the assignment may have been halted because the Commissioner had no approval from the Inspector General of Police. The Police spokesman, Femi Joseph, declined comment on the recent attack and killing of the security guard of the former Finance Minister.
