A sad young lady has taken to her Twitter handle to narrate a story of how her uncle was killed in by his own workers in the Nigerian city of Ibadan.
The deceased was said to have been in his 40s when the unfortunate incident happened.
Olufunmilayo (@FunmiKolz) shared the post on Monday, October 15. She also posted a video of police officers parading the young men.
It was further revealed that these men kidnapped and killed Olufunmilayo’s uncle for sacking another staff on his farm.
The staff was sent away for stealing eggs from the deceased’s farm. The paraded workers also received a huge ransom from the family of the deceased before killing him.
Her post reads: “My uncle is a farmer, in his early 40s and a father of 3. He was kidnapped and brutally murdered by his workers. They asked for ransom which was given to them but they still killed him. For what reason? Cos he sacked a staff for stealing his eggs and they ganged up against him.”
The tweet has garnered a lot of attention with a lot of people expressing their sadness and condoling the bereaved family.
One Twitter user Femi Fasanya (@cabman4lasgidi) who identified the deceased as Tomilade described him as a good loving young man.
Alex Akande (@AlexAkande1) was so angry that he cursed the killers:
Oluwa Thanos (@IamMuchaio) said Tomilade was a great man:
