The Secretary of the Farmers’ union (Akowe Agbe), Ibarapa North, Mr Taiwo Adeagbo, confirmed that the farmer died as a result of machete cuts on his body as the deceased suffered serious deep machete cuts on the back and hands, while his right leg was cut.

Adeagbo said the victim bled to death as a result of the deep injuries inflicted on him and due to the unavailability of anyone to come to his rescue after the attack.

He alleged that the suspected herders were at large, while adding that investigation was still ongoing on the matter.
