Two Killed, Buildings Razed as Oyo Community Boils
Two residents of Ajaawa in the Ogo Oluwa Local Government Area of Oyo State were reportedly killed on Wednesday.
It was gathered that some herdsmen killed a butcher, popularly known as Lamidi Eleran, in the town.
The butcher was said to have seen some herdsmen while they were trying to kidnap a prominent traditionalist in the town.
The kidnap attempt, it was gathered, failed but the herdsmen later lured the butcher to the bush to buy cows. He was reportedly killed by the herdsmen there.
The killing was said to have led to a protest and the protesters were said to have waited in front of the house of one of the contestants for the stool of Alajaawa.
The contestant reportedly opened fire on the protesters, but nobody died.
The shooting was said to have angered protesters and they vandalized his building and set it ablaze while the contestant managed to escape.
His hotel was also said to have been razed down by the youths to register their anger.
The Police Public Relations Officer in Oyo State Mr Adewale Osifeso, could not be reached.
