The killing is coming after some months of break in killings orchestrated by suspected herdsmen.

It would be recalled that Ibarapa had been ravaged by criminal herdsmen who allegedly killed, maimed, raped residents and destroyed farmlands before Yoruba nation agitator, Sunday Igboho visited the area, to warn against such acts.
