A local source who spoke with newsmen said that the victim had gone missing for days after she left for the farm only for her corpse to be found a few days after.

According to the source, the grandmother was reportedly stripped naked raped by the herdsmen who abandoned her corpse in the farm and disappeared.

“This is not the first time we’re witnessing this ugly incident, several women have been raped in their farms by the herdsmen.

“The fear of being attacked has prevented women from going to their farms alone for some time now. Why they picked on this old woman remained a mystery to us in the community

“The octogenarian was alleged to have been raped before she was murdered by her attackers. What would have attracted them to an 80-year-old woman?

“They just wasted her. Maybe she recognized some of her attackers that’s why they killed her. Her gruesome death was sad and unfortunate.

”We appeal to security agencies and the state government to come to our rescue in Ore. The herdsmen are having a field day and taking advantage of our women.

“Our amiable governor Rotimi Akeredolu, should help deploy the state security outfit codenamed Amotekun, to our community. We’re passionately appealing to him,” the local source said.

Meanwhile, a police source said that a suspect known as Sunday, a palm wine tapper, has been arrested.

It was gathered that a suspect was arrested by some youths in the community after finding in his possession the cellphone of the victim.

A police source said that the suspect who took the youths to where the corpse of the victim was later found alleged that the old woman was murdered by some Fulani herdsmen.

Confirming the incident, Funmi Odunlami, the spokesperson of the Police Command in Ondo State, described the incident as a case of rape and murder.

She added that the suspect would soon be paraded by the state police command after interrogation and subsequently charged to court.
