NEWSCASTARS.COM gathered from the Punch that the Secretary of Ibarapa Farmers Union, Mr Taiwo Adeagbo, popularly known as Akowe Agbe, said the retired principal is his relative.
Adeagbo, who is fighting for the rights of farmers in Ibarapa, said, “The victim is my relative. He is a retired principal and he should be around 62 years old. I was called to see what happened to him. I immediately called the Commissioner of Police (Ngozi Onadeko). She said I should report to the police officially and I called the DPO in Ayete. He came with two officers and two vans loaded with armed policemen.
“The DPO could not look at the pictures of the victim. They were gory. Strands of flesh are preventing the two hands from falling off after the attack. The two hands are almost off. They have ruined his life.”
