Two persons were reportedly killed, on Monday, in a clash between farmers and herdsmen in Sobe, Owan West Local Government Area of Edo State.

it was gathered that trouble started over the alleged slaughtering of an 11-year-old boy, who had gone to fetch firewood for his family.

An eyewitness said the boy, whose body was found on Sunday inside a bush, was allegedly killed by suspected herdsmen grazing on the farm.

The eyewitness, who sought anonymity, said the boy’s relatives from the Kwale extraction mobilised the youth for a reprisal attack, went after the herders, and killed one of them in the process.

Chairman of the local government, Mr Frank Ilaboya, while reacting to the killings, appealed for calm in the community.

Ilaboya said he has informed the Edo Commissioner of Police, Lawal Jimeta, about the killings and also requested for reinforcement.

“There is the need for everybody to remain peaceful and calm in the community,” he added.
