“He went to the farm and met our father packing palm fruits which he cut from our family palm trees into a bag and shot him dead”. Alice, daughter of the slain man told newsmen.
She said the father and her uncle have been quarrelling over who should harvest palm fruits on their late father’s plantation. He has been warning my father to stay away from the palm trees or he will deal with h but my father did not take him seriously since the palm trees belong to the family”

” Normally, when a gunshot hits its target, the sound is different from the one which missed i’s target so the hunter was attracted by the sound of the gun which he was sure got its target but when he got there it was a different scenario”; She stated.
