On how the incident occurred ,Alara said ” We have about 25 communities in Ikole and there was a security Committee which I am the chairman and one of the deceased monarchs was the Vice chairman.
“There has been repeated  attacks by herders on farmers in our areas because we have large forests here.So when the attack was becoming too frequent on our people we sought permission from the Police to intervene and the  permit was granted.
“So ,when recieved another report of an attack by herders where one of our people was killed between Ayebode and Ayedun, we decided to move in .We had visited the community where incident happened. We were discussing the issue of late Onimojo , an associate Professor  who was planning to move from Federal University of Technology (FUTA) to Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE) on our back along Irele when these herders appeared from no where.
“We never new they many, because about three of them pointed guns at us. We  tried to struggle with them but they began to fire at us from different directions. Though , the bullets did not enter but I realized that they fully arned with sophisticated weapons , I then break away from scene  and surged  forward to a check point mounted by our local hunters .
“But seeing the high grade fire arms and sporadic gunshots, the local hunters  couldn’t advance.or challenge the hoodlums.  I  asked one of our local hunters to return fire but his Dane gun could not work .By the time I looked back, I saw my colleagues Oba in the pool  of their own bloods. It was a very sad experience, my colleagues monarchs sacrificed their lives  and died for their people. I would  admit that the bullets did not penetrate through my body but I did not disappear, as being speculated. ” Oba Fatoba said .
