The Police in Ogun have arrested three herdsmen for attacking Bamajo village in Ayetoro and setting it on fire.

The herdsmen also inflicted a deep machete cut on one Ismaila Alabi .

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the Area commander for Ayetoro,  Anthony Aruna, mobilised his men, hunters and youths to the community where the entire area was thoroughly combed. 

As the search progressed into Igboaje bush, one Musa Yusuf was found  and arrested on February 18th with gun and a  blood stained cutlass.

He noted that Musa's arrest led to the arrest of Usman Mohammed and Aliyu, who were strongly believed to have participated in the violent attack on the villagers.

The suspects would be transferred to the state criminal investigation and intelligence department for further investigation as directed by the Commissioner of Police, Edward Ajogun.

According to the Police Spokesman, massive manhunt is being conducted on the remaining arsonists at large with a view to bringing them to face justice while the injured villager has been taken to hospital for treatment.
