Kwara govt commends health partners over commitment to malaria intervention programme

A farm belonging to the spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State, Tajudeen Aro, was on Friday invaded by suspected herdsmen.

It was learnt that one of the farmers, Yakubu Salasi, who was severely injured is currently receiving treatment.

Confirming the incident, the public relations officer of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in the state, Babawale Afolabi, stated that the herders migrated from Idanre in Osun State.

The herders, however, escaped from the scene, while the farmers alerted the Offa Civil Defence Joint Taskforce division.

When contacted on Sunday, Mr. Aro said the young man injured is recuperating and efforts are being made to nab the assailants.

He explained that while the herders are on the run, the owners of the cattle are currently in police net.
