A farmer was beaten to death on Leeubos farm in Bloemhof, North West police said on Tuesday.

Brigadier Thulani Ngubane said the body of 46-year-old Adriaan Johannes (At) van der Merwe was discovered on the floor of his study around 7am on Tuesday with head injuries.

“The house was ransacked by the suspects.”

Ngubane said it was believed that the unknown attackers gained entry into Van der Merwe's farmhouse by digging a hole underneath a security fence on Monday evening.

“The suspects broke open the front door of the farmhouse.”

Van der Merwe's vehicle, a silver RAV 4 with registration number FTY116NW, was missing.

Police called for anyone with information to contact their nearest police station or CrimeStop on 0860-10111. – Sapa
