The herdsmen had invaded the farm last weekend and they were restricted by the security guards following incessant invasion of the farm.

The herdsmen were said to have retreated only to surface again and reportedly kidnapped one of the security guards on the farm.

The matter was reported at the state police command and a search party was organised following which his corpse was discovered few days later.

Falae was first attacked and kidnapped by the herdsmen in October last year, and was only released after his family paid N5million to his abductors.
