Bashir Bello, the Oyo state commissioner for health, says the state government has commenced the treatment of three persons said to be victims of herdsmen attacks in Igangan town.

He disclosed this on Monday, adding that Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo, had ordered the relocation of the victims to Ibadan.

A statement signed by Taiwo Adisa, chief press secretary to the governor, noted that the commissioner stated this while speaking to newsmen in Ibadan, the Oyo capital.

According to the commissioner, the victims are 26-year-old Isaiah Seun, 71-year-old Emmanuel Aderogba, and Adekola Adeyemo, aged 65.

“Following the directive of the governor that the ministry should take charge of the three victims of herdsmen attack at Igangan, the permanent secretaries of the ministry of health, hospital management board and a team of medical doctors went down and combined with the chairman of Ibarapa North-West LCDA, to bring the three victims,” the statement reads.

“One is Isaiah Seun, a 26-year-old bricklayer and commercial motorcycle rider before the injury occurred. He had a head injury and was fairly conscious and alert when brought in. The second, an elderly man of 71 years, has a fractured right radius. He has also been hospitalised. The third man, a 65-year-old, also sustained head injury. He was a tree-felling machine operator.

“All of them have been taken care of; X-rays were done for those with fractures and head injuries. All necessary biomedical and laboratory investigations have been conducted. They have been attended to by both orthopedic surgeons and specialists necessary, and they are all doing well now in the hospitals. They are all at Ring Road State Hospital, Adeoyo.
