The Police Command in Oyo State has vowed to arrest all suspects in connection with the killing of an operative of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, by suspected fulani herdsmen.
Sheu Magu, commander of a team of SARS, was reportedly killed by suspected herdsmen as they tried disarming the herdsmen who were allegedly terrorizing residents of Saki.
He was said to have been macheted to death by the Fulani herdsmen during an operation in a forest on the Saki-Ogbooro Road in Oke-Ogun area of the state.
Mr Abiodun Odude, commissioner of Police in the state, said in Ibadan on Wednesday, February 7, 2018, in a telephone interview that more suspects would still be arrested.
“The police command had earlier arrested four suspects in connection with the killing, but we promised more will go in for it.
“ Investigation into the root of the matter has just started.
“ We have earlier arrested four suspects and we are going to get more suspects in connection with the killing of the SARS operatives,’’ Odudu said.
Reacting, Fani Kayode, former minister of Aviation, said law and order had been broken in the country as no one was safe, even security agents, from Fulani herdsmen whom he described as ‘Bloodsucking’.
On his official twitter page, he wrote “A SARS police officer was cut into tiny pieces with matchets by Fulani terrorists in Saki, Oyo state yesterday. Law and order has broken down and even our security agents are being targeted and slaughtered in open daylight by these bloodthirsty and bloodsucking Fulani herdsmen.”
