Physinews Reports: A farm manager, Gbenga Kiki, has been
strangled by unknown persons while harvesting
crop on a farmland in Orisada-Eyo community
in the Yewa South Local Government Area of
Ogun State Nigeria.


PUNCH Metro gathered that 37-year-old
Gbenga, a father of two, who managed the farm
for his boss, whose name had yet to be
ascertained, was killed penultimate Sunday,
while harvesting tomatoes.

It was learnt that the farm manager had left for
the farm on his motorcycle around 12pm.

Our correspondent gathered that Gbenga went
with his nine-year-old daughter.

PUNCH Metro learnt that the family members
became apprehensive when Gbenga failed to
return.
His daughter was found at a junction some
hours later, and was taken home by a Good
Samaritan.

Gbenga’s corpse was reportedly discovered on
Thursday on the farmland by some members of
a vigilance group, with some signs of violence.

Our correspondent learnt that the matter was
reported at the Owode Police Division, while
two suspects were arrested.


The deceased’s mother, Celina Kiki, told our
correspondent that Gbenga had left for the farm
to harvest some tomatoes for Sallah.


She said, “It was around 12pm on Sunday. I
prepared food for him and asked him to eat
before going to the farm as he had much work
to do. He insisted on going, adding that he
would return to eat as he was not going to stay
long. He went on his motorcycle.

“He said I should keep the food for him. When it
was, however, getting late, I became worried
that he had not returned. Minutes later, I saw a
man riding his motorcycle home.

The man
brought back Gbenga’s daughter. I was
shocked and knew that something bad had
happened. The girl could not explain anything.
The attackers must have dropped her at a
junction while they went to carry out their
wicked act.

“We kept on searching for Gbenga until
Thursday when his corpse was found on the
farmland. We do not know who killed him. I am
still in pains.”

A community leader, who identified himself only
as Odebiyi, urged the police to be thorough in
their investigation.

He said, “The two suspects arrested should be
quizzed thoroughly by the police. They may
have useful information about the case. One of
them is known as Dauda. He was a former
manager of the farmland where Gbenga
worked.”


A resident told PUNCH Metro that Gbenga
usually did not work on Sunday, adding that
the killers were suspected to have called him
on the telephone to come and sell tomatoes to
them.

“I saw his corpse. He was strangled and his
corpse was dumped in the bush around the
farmland,” he added.

The head of the vigilance group in the
community, Gafar Raji, said the police should
strengthen security in the area, adding that the
community had not been attacked by gunmen
in the past.

The Ogun State acting Police Public Relations
Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said the police were
investigating if there was a foul play in
Gbenga’s death.

He said, “The matter was initially reported as a
case of missing person. But when the corpse
was eventually found in a bush, no mark of
violence was discovered on him. The owner of
the farm and another person were invited for
questioning. The police will still investigate if
there was any foul play in the death.”
