Fears As Fulani Herdsmen Invade Enugu CommunitiesAbout forty Enugu state communities in Ezeagu Local Government Area are in a state of panic due to the appearance of Fulani herdsmen allegedly armed with AK 47 rifles in their communities.

The herdsmen had entered the area two weeks back with their lifestocks and due to illegal grazing, they have managed to destroy local crops in farms and raped some local women in village.

Due to the sudden invasion by the northerners, Agriculture production by the region is at an all time low, and the locals can’t protect their citizens due to the superior arms carried by the invading herdsmen.

Ex Ohanaeze leader Justice Ozobu spoke on the recent invasion by the herdsmen and said the issue needs to be controlled fast and his people were on the fringe of death and anarchy. Ozobu, who is now the Traditional ruler of Imeziowa community of Ezeagu LGA area revealed he knows nothing if the security agents in the state are doing anything to stop the herdsmen.

He said: “I do not know what government has done or any action taken by security operatives to checkmate the insurgency by the Fulani herdsmen. These people who we thought carry only sticks and machetes now carry AK47 rifles openly and we wonder where they got those guns from. “People no longer go to farm anymore and every one now lives in fear of these people.

They come in and settle down as if it is their home, nobody is doing anything to stop them.

“In my own place, my brother who retired as a police officer, came out in the night and asked them what they were doing with guns they were carrying. At some point, he had to bring out his gun and shot two of them.”

  1. This is the beginning of the end. I tot its only in the south west of Nigeria these locust called Fulani herds men are destroying farmers properties without a finger been raised by the farmer to protect their own properties. To make the matter worst they deliberately rear they cows into the farm and you as the owner of the farm can’t challenge them for fear of been kill in your own land. To me the southern Governments should find a lasting solution to this vex issue, somebody cannot come from the desert to destroy our forest and still kill our peopele, i emphatically say no way, therefore we should give it all it take to stop this nonesense.

  2. good morning my fellow Nigeria , if I may asks who are the Fulani headmen that they killing people everyday, were are the from are the Nigeria or are playing politics. I know that one day God will review they secret, remain bless my good people.

  3. Where is the southern govt you talked about, Its non existent.I expect Massob and other Biafran groups to sweep this pest called Fulani away. A stitch in time will save millions now.

  4. we need a special task force to take care of these useless people that want to turn our forests n farmlands into a desert. These pple will come to our land destroy it , attack us, rape our women n nothing is done to them n thats wat gives them the courage to contiune their devilish activities. All hands must be on deck to report to d communities at the sight of these morons.The states house of assemblies of the south east . south south shld pass a strong law that wl probihit these herdsmen from encroaching the farmlands.
