Bororo Herdsmen on Saturday evening invaded a farm belonging to three brothers in Kwara state while attacking two of the brothers that resisted their invasion.
Harmony Times gathered that the three brothers namely, Nathaniel Joseph, Goje Joseph and Friday Joseph are residents of Oyan in Odo-Otin Local Government Area of Osun State with their farm land in Erin-Ile, Oyun Local Government Area of Kwara State.
The Incidence which was said to have happened at around 6pm on Saturday when the Siblings were set to leave the farm for their homes in Osun State.
The eldest of the three brothers who spoke to newsmen alleged that, they were attacked by Bororo cattle herders.
“We were attacked by Bororo herders, they came to our farm with their cows.”
“That was not their first time of invading our farm and destroying it. We choose to check them yesterday. We have been farming on that land 10 years ago and they insisted that their cattle want to feed.”
“We refused and they used a big club on us. Friday, my younger brother, managed to escape to seek help from the nearby village.”
The eldest brother narrated that while they have reported to the Oloyan of Oyan, they are yet to engage with the Elerin.
“They hit myself and Nathaniel with clubs to the extent of bleeding and destroyed our maize and cassava farm. When villagers came to our rescue, they ran away with their cattle. We reported to the Oloyan of Oyan but he told us to report to the Elerin of Erin-Ile since it happened on his land. We have not gone to see him.”
Efforts by Harmony Times to reach the Elerin’s palace proved abortive as at press time.577
