Reports reaching us suggest that Fulani herdsmen and locals have been locked in a bloody clash since the wee hours of Friday, in Okada, Edo state.

Okada is home to Igbinedion University and due to the fracas, students have been advised to stay indoors while lectures have been canceled for the day.

YNaija understands that Okada youths set up a roadblock restricting movement around the village as commercial motorcycles, vehicles continue to get torched.

“We heard gunshots earlier this morning. Classes have been canceled and students are advised to stay indoors. No word on the crux of the matter though”, says a YNaija student reporter.

The clash is believed to have stemmed from the death of a 65-year-old farmer killed by the Fulanis on his farmland and a reprisal attack that saw the Fulani settlement in the village razed down.
