A 62-year-old security guard with the Federal University of Oye-Ekiti (FOUYE) Mr Matthew Malik has been killed by unknown gunmen.

Malik was said to have been killed in his farm by gunmen last Friday in Oye-Ekiti, Oye local government area of the state.

The deceased son, John Malik told newsmen in Ado-Ekiti, yesterday that his father was allegedly killed over the misunderstanding he had with an unnamed person as regards the farm.

He said that his father went to the farm in the morning on Friday but never returned to resume his shift in the university.

According to him, “My dad is a security man in FUOYE and on that day, he was scheduled to go to work in the afternoon but decided to visit his farm in the morning.

“It was his people in the university that called us that he was yet to resume his duty post. Immediately, we commenced the search work to the farm and we met him dead.
