Gov. Ayo Fayose of Ekiti  on Tuesday visited Ipao-Ekiti  to condole with the family of a farmer, Tunde Olayemi, who was killed  on Sunday by suspected herdsmen.

Fayose, at a  meeting with the leaders of the community, however, appealed  to the people of Ipao  to ensure that there were no  reprisal killings.

” I appeal to you to ensure you live peacefully with the Fulani herdsmen in your community. We want  a peaceful situation that would  not allow any reprisal.

“We will investigate and get to the root cause of this sad development,  particularly why this community has become a flashpoint so that we can find a lasting solution to it,” Fayose said.

The governor  also promised to set up a five-man committee that would investigate the cause of the killings in the town.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)  reports that the governor  promised to compensate the affected victim’s family as well the herdsmen whose cows  were killed

He also said there would be an amendment to the Anti-Grazing Law to ensure that whoever killed  a cow unlawfully  would be made to face the wrath of the law.

Fayose also assured residents of  the state of  safety, saying the government would not relent in  working  with security agents to check  breakdown of law and order.
