Once again, suspected Fulani herdsmen are alleged to have attacked the Obaile residence of elder statesman and former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Olu Falae.
According to Premium Times, about 10 Fulani herdsmen also attacked the farm of Falae, on Sunday, taking one of the security guards at the residence hostage.
The security guard was later found dead on Thursday. His body was discovered by the police in a pool of water some miles away from Falae farm.
The matter was said to have been handled quietly by the police on the behest of the Falae family. The family reportedly deserted their house for fear that they will be attacked again.
It would be recalled that the former SGF was last year kidnapped by some Fulani herdsmen, who are currently facing criminal prosecution for the abduction. Falae was, however, released by his abductors after paying N5 million ransom.
Speaking on the issue, the Ondo state Police Public Relations Officer, Femi Joseph, told newsmen that he cannot comment on the development as the police was currently investigating it, saying that the State Commissioner of Police will address the issue soon.
Falae is yet to comment too on the attack as all effort made to contact him proved abortive.
