The Chief Executive Officer of Spool and Waterbodies Limited, Adeniyi Odunlami has been killed by suspected herdsmen.
Odunlami 42, who hails from Ijebu Ode in Ogun State was said to have left his house in Abuja on Sunday, October 18, 2020, for the Kainji Game Reserve in Niger State to continue on a project he had been working on.
According to his pouse, Dayo Odunlami, after the day’s work, her husband was going back to his hotel room in the morning of Monday, October 19, 2020 when the Kainji Games Reserve Park vehicle he boarded was attacked.
She said her husband was abducted and dragged into the bush after being shot in the leg by suspected Fulani herders, adding that he was one of the people that did not allow their cattle to graze at the Kainji Games Reserve.
According to her, no demand for ransom was made until his body was found on Tuesday October 20, 2020, in Borgu village, Borgu Local Government Area of Niger State.
“One of his boys actually called and told us what had happened. His body was eventually found. The story was that he left the park and they were on their way out to get some items and go back to the hotel when they were attacked by the Fulani herdsmen in Borgu village.
“They were saying things like, ‘These are the people that do not allow us to graze our cattle,” she stated.
