Suspected herdsmen attack farmer in Edo

A farmer simply identified as Bashiru Aliu (50) was Tuesday reportedly attacked by armed men suspected to be herdsmen in his farm at Ubuneke-Ivbiaro, in Owan East local government area of Edo state.

It was reliably gathered that the herdsmen numbering about four attacked the farmer with a machete and inflicted deep cut on his head.

It will be recalled that suspected herdsmen numbering about six had, on May 14, raped a married woman and beat her husband to pulp at a farm in the same community.

The victim, who is currently receiving medical treatment in an undisclosed hospital in Auchi, in a telephone interview with newsmen in Benin-City said the incident happened between 9 am and 10 am.
