Arimogija, a community in the Ose Local Government Area in Ondo State, was thrown into confusion on Monday evening as gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen launched a fresh attack on the town, killing five persons.

The attack is coming a few days after gunmen invaded Omolege, a border community in the same LGA, killing three people and razing many houses.

The community’s head was said to be among those killed.

Governor Rotimi Akeredolu had on Sunday visited the council area and vowed to hunt the perpetrators.

The governor had visited the scene in company with the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Oyediran Oyeyemi; the Commander of the Amotekun Corps, Tunji Adeleye; and some members of the state executive council.

However, few hours after the visit, SaharaReporters gathered that the gunmen attacked another community in the LGA, killing at least five persons.

Those killed included the community youth chairman, Augustine Lucky; Osaromere Augustine; Odalume Stephen; Okpakoro and Monday Black.
