A 45-year-old Togolese farmer, Kosi Salisu, on Monday, macheted a 16-year-old Fulani herder, Umaru Abdullahi, following an altercation.
The incident occurred at Owode, Banni Community in the Kwara North Senatorial district of Kwara State.
According to reports, Abdullahi was grazing beside the Togolese’s farm, when one one of his cows strayed into the farm. He was said to have been trying to retrieve his cow when Salisu inflicted machete cuts on his forehead and stomach.
