Herdsmen rape 72-year-old woman to coma in Ondo

The victim identified as Akinseye was raped to coma in her farmland in Ore, Ondo State by some suspected herdsmen, reports Daily Post


The septuagenarian told newsmen that she was working on her farm on the fateful day when the two Fulani herdsmen attacked her and took turns to rape her.

The incident forced youths from the area under the auspices of Ondo State Youth Coalition and farmers across the 18 local governments to stage a protest against the development.

The protesters threatened to take laws into their hands if the state government and the security agencies in the state failed to address the issue immediately.

The Coordinator of the OSYC, Mr. Oluwatuyi Adekanmbi, said herdsmen had turned themselves to terrors in Ondo State by perpetrating in series of crimes which included: rape, farm destruction, killing as well as kidnapping in their land.
