Unknown gunmen killed, Mr Mathew Malik, a security guard working with the Federal University of Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), in Oye local government areas of Ekiti.

The gun-wielding bandits were said to have stormed the deceased’s farmland located in the town last Friday where the 62-year-old man identified as Mathew Malik was murdered.

The deceased’s son, John Malik, who spoke with Globalgistng in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital on Thursday, said his father was allegedly killed over a disagreement between him and some unnamed persons over his farm.

He explained his father went to the farm last Friday but never returned to resume to his duty post in the FUOYE, where he was working.

“My dad is a security man in FUOYE and on that day, he was scheduled to go to work in the afternoon but decided to visit his farm in the morning.

“It was his people in the university that called us that he was yet to resume his duty post. Immediately, we commenced the search work to the farm and we met him dead.
