SUSPECTED herders have allegedly attacked two persons with machete at  troubled Igangan in Ibarapa North Local Government Area of Oyo State.

According to Mr. Taiwo Adeagbo, a resident, the herders attacked the two persons in their village around 1a.m yesterday.

As a result, youths of the community had been on guard because they envisaged the herders could  come back.

When explaining further, he said one of the victims had machete cuts on the head while the second one had injuries on his right leg.

Adeagbo said, “Suspected  herders invaded the village around 1a.m and attacked two persons. You can imagine when uninvited strangers swooped on innocent people at such an ungodly hour.
