“Information available said the daughter of Baba was attacked by fulani herdsmen along Ore road.
“She was said to be coming from Lagos to commiserate with a relation in Ondo,” Odumakin said.
According to him,
“eyewitness accounts said she died of gunshot from Fulani herdsmen who shot her at Ore junction in Ondo State earlier today.
“She was coming from Akure when the armed Fulani herdsmen came from the bush to attack her and other vehicles.
“Her domestic staff in the car with her sustained gunshot injuries too. This is one death too many and a clear indication that we can take it -no more.”
