The Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu, purportedly “acting on orders from above”, has summoned the leaders of a Yoruba Community, Ifon in the Ose Local Government Area of Ondo State to Abuja over the alleged killing of a cow, Theeditorngr.com reports.
The community has however kicked against the invitation of their elders by the police, saying the invitation is an irresponsible and misplaced priority from the authorities.
The leaders said it was surprising that the police were pursuing supposed killers of cows when it had yet to unravel those who killed their traditional ruler, the Olufon of Ifon, Oba Isreal Adeusi.
They said the leaders invited were among those temporarily holding forth following the death of their Oba.
The late Oba Adeusi was killed by suspected herdsmen around Elegbeka on Ifon-Owo Highway on November 26, 2020.
