“The victims were riding on a motorcycle, coming from Ologede around 11 o’clock last (Sunday) night. They ran into these fleeing herdsmen, who killed them. They even took the victim’s new motorcycle away, leaving their old one behind,” he said.
“We saw empty AK-47 cartridges at the scene of the incident. A formal report has been made at the police station in Imeko and the police have gone there to take the bodies.
“This is getting too much. We can no longer sleep in our houses. The herdsmen are everywhere. Government should come to our rescue. The Amotekun operatives in Imeko are too few. We need help.”
The Balogun raised the alarm that the Igangan killers had relocated to a village called Sagada in Imeko/Afon.
“Those herdsmen who escaped after killing people in Igangan are now in Ogun State. They camp in a village called Sagada, under Oke Agbede in Ward 2.
“There is a river, (Oyan) in-between Sagada and Igangan. They are there as we speak. We have informed the appropriate authorities, but no positive steps have been taken so far,” the community leader said.
Contacted, the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said, “I will find out.”
TODAY SPLASH earlier reported that scores of Igangan residents were gruesomely murdered by suspected herdsmen on Sunday.
