Unnamed armed bandits said to be Fulani herdsmen have killed Solomon Ejoor in his farm in Abraka, Delta State.
Christian Onwugbolu, a social media user, writes:
In the recent past, each time Solo Ejor’s mother go to her farm, the Fulani herdsmen will warn her not to come back to the farm again.
Monday 24/04/2017, she went back to her farm to cultivate cassava for yesterday’s market sales, because that is the only way for her to survive.
While working in the farm, the Fulani herdsmen appeared suddenly with guns, battle axes and other dangerous weapons and started pursuing the old woman.
She used her wisdom as her strength can not help her to outrun the rampaging herdsmen by hiding somewhere. When the Northerners could not catch her but continued the search, she managed to call the son, Solo Ejor. Ejor went to the farm to search and rescue his lovely mother to safety before the dangerous herdsmen pounced on him but unfortunately he was killed during the process.
The mother of the deceased is still alive. She has been taken to her village, Ogbeje-Urhuoka.
