The herdsmen, who were said to have taken their cattle to the farm in Ilado village in Akure North Local Government Area of Ondo State, were said to have destroyed the maize farm before moving to the citrus farm and set it on fire.
Apart from destroying the farm, the herdsmen also invaded the farm house in the middle of the night and attacked the workers.
Confirming the development, the Personal Assistant to Falae, Captain Moshood Raji (retd.), said the herdsmen and their cows destroyed the maize farm.
He said crops worth millions of naira were destroyed as the invaders grazed their cattle.
“We reported the incident to the police and the herdsmen seemed to be irked by the development, returned to the farm house and attacked the workers on the farm,” he said.
It was gathered that Falae, who was abducted in September 2015 by some herdsmen, had invited the policemen to the farm following the incessant invasions and destruction of the farm by the herdsmen and their cattle.
He however said the Commandant of the Ondo State Security Network, Amotekun, has been written over the development.
When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Tee-Leo Ikoro, said he was not aware of the incident.
