Armed Herdsmen Declare War On Enugu Communities, Kill Many Residents, Sack More Villages
The armed herdsmen had invaded Agu-Amede community on Saturday and Monday, killing no fewer than 10 people including women and children.
Another community leader, Augustine Odoh, also confirmed the attack, adding that the fulani herdsmen had declared war on Eha-Amufu.
Odo said that the herdsmen were currently attacking three communities in Eha-Amufu and residents are fleeing to Ebonyi State.
According to him, they are calling Eha-Amufu pro people living outside to come home to defend their communities.
“Our people were having meeting this morning on how to carry those they killed on Saturday and Monday to Government House in Enugu State capital before they launched another attack this morning.
“As we speak, everybody is running helter-skelter. Some are relocating their families to Ebonyi communities that are close to Eha-Amufu.”
Lamenting the incessant attack by Fulani herdsmen, Odo said “Our people cannot confront them with bare hands. They come in their numbers with AK-47 rifles with other dangerous weapons, shooting and destroying for hours unchallenged.
“The government will only deploy soldiers in communities in other South East to hounds and kill members of pro-Biafra groups especially the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) but same soldiers cannot be deployed to our communities to stop herdsmen and Islamic terrorists attacks. That is the hypocrisy in this government.”
SaharaReporters’ efforts to get reaction of the Enugu State Police Command were not successful as the spokesman, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, did not take his calls.
