8 shares
The commander of a team of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), in Oyo state, Sheu Magu, has been killed by herdsmen, Vanguard reports.
According to the report, the SARS commander was killed when he and his men tried disarming the herdsmen, who residents in the area say have been terrorising them. The team of policemen were said to have acted on a tip-off and moved to disarm the herdsmen, but they were resisted with gunshots which killed the commander.
A source told Vanguard: “The killing of Supol Sheu has made the issue a story. Before now, attacking women, especially in the evening and night, robbing and rapi*g them is not news around here. “The Bororo herdsmen have always been notorious for that. They use their AK-47 to guard their cattle during the day and use it to commit nefarious activities at night. “The Superintendent of Police was a very nice, gentle and well-behaved officer. He used to relate with civilians in a very civil manner. His death is very sad. With this, I believe the security operatives will take the issue of herdsmen’s attacks and robbery more seriously.”
