The PPRO said Papalolo was killed in the face-off over the attack on a farmer, Yunusa Makeri, by suspected herdsmen.

Kennedy said; “The deceased was killed in Awe market during a skirmish between some youths and Fulani herdsmen immediately after the injured farmer, Yunusa Makeri, and two herders were brought to the general hospital with machete wounds.”

He added that calm has been restored to the area as the command had already deployed more personnel in crisis zones in order to maintain law and order in the state.
