Four indigenous people were killed by the son of Uskili Waliki, a notorious Fulani man said to be responsible of kidnapping in Iganna area of Oyo State.
The Aare ona Kakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams said the four people were killed by Abu, son of Wakili
The four men were hacked to death in the early hours of Monday at the village.
Two of the men killed were said to be members of the community police in the area.
Iba Adams, in a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kehinde Aderemi, said the four men were killed in the most gruesome manner,adding that the audio and pictorial evidences at his disposal indicated that the killers have been terrorising the village and its environs, engaging in untold kidnapping, killing.
The statement added that assailants have also collected over 800 million naira as ransom from their captives.
Adams, expressed worry that the security situation in the southwest is becoming too worrisome, maintaining that the situation could have been so worse if not for the efforts of the OPC.
The Yoruba generalissimo, however, warned criminal herders to stay away from the region, disclosing that OPC and other local security operatives will continue to ensure that the region is safe for residents.
Adams, while reacting to the arrest of four members of the OPC that nabbed the notorious Kidnapper,
said it is purely an admittance of failure for the police to arrest the gallant men that had assisted them in nabbing the notorious kidnapper, Wakili and three of his men.
Adams, however, urged the police to release the members, and concentrate on getting rid of the Igangan forests of bandits and kidnappers.
