Suspected herdsmen have killed a woman identified as Elizabeth Pascal while returning from the stream in Ogun State.

It was gathered that Pascal was murdered on Monday evening at CAC Olorunda, Moriwi community of Imeko-Afon Local Government Area.

It was reported that the deceased went to the stream to fetch water for domestic use and was attacked on her way back from the stream.

Pascal encountered her assailants, who did not hesitate before hacking her to death in cold blood.

The development was confirmed by the Eselu of Iselu, Oba Akintunde Akinyemi, on Tuesday.

Oba Akinyemi disclosed that Pascal was killed by suspected Fulani herdsmen, who had continued to terrorise the Yewa axis of Ogun State.

He said, “Yes, it is true. The lady was killed today (Monday) by Fulani herdsmen around Imeko-Afon. She went to the stream and on her way coming, she met the Fulani herdsmen and they killed her. It happened around 3 o’clock, according to the report.”

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, confirmed the incident.

Oyeyemi said the woman was an indigene of Benin Republic who was killed on her way to the stream in Imeko-Afon, Ogun State.

The PPRO said her husband had come to claim the corpse and had taken it to the Benin Republic.

In another development, the Rivers State Police Command has debunked reports that unknown gunmen have hijacked a bus conveying students in the Ogoni area of the State.

Naija News reports that the Police dismissed the report in a statement titled, ‘RE: Gunmen hijack bus filled with students in Rivers, demand N2 million ransom”, by the Police Public Relations Officer in Rivers State, SP Nnamdi Omoni.
