The a 64-year-old farmer, Linus Ogbee,  had gone to the farm on the ill-fated day when he was attacked.

The parcel of land is located a few meters away from that of the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Olu Falae, which the herdsmen also invaded last week.

It was gathered that during the invasion of Falae’s farm, the herdsmen reportedly engaged in a gun battle with policemen deployed to the farm to dislodge them and in the process many cows were killed.

Reports had it that the herdsmen stormed the villages in search of their cows and in the process shot the farmer they met on the farm.

When he did not return home after long hours, his family members went in search of him only to discover his lifeless body in the bush.

Police authorities have begun to investigation to find the perpetrators of that heinous act.
