Pregnant woman shot dead in Ekiti

Suspected herdsmen have killed a pregnant woman at Orin, a community in Ido/Osi local government area of Ekiti state.

The deceased said to be a Tiv from Benue state, was reportedly shot dead at a farm settlement in the area.
“The woman was eight-month pregnant. The herdsmen shot her inside her farm,” a source told TheCable.
The police have not issued a statement on the incident but Lere Olayinka, spokesman of  Ayodele Fayose, governor of Ekiti, confirmed that a pregnant woman was killed.
Olayinka said it is suspected to be a robbery attack.
“I don’t think they are herdsmen. It appears like a robbery attack,” he told TheCable.
The tragic incident happened less than 24 hours after Fayose warned against reprisal attacks in the state.
This followed the killing of Babuga Dengi, a herdsman, based in Ekiti.

Fayose had said preliminary investigation showed that Benue indigenes in the state were responsible for the death.  (The Cable )
