ENUGU— The last seems to have not been heard in the violent attack orchestrated by Fulani herdsmen whom have refused to let the residents of Nimbo community in Uzo-Uwani LGA have some moment of peace, following the attack at the community last Friday.
On Friday 8th July, 2016, at about 3 in the afternoon, a violent group of Fulani herdsmen stormed Nimbo/Ugbene road wielding AK 47, dagger and other dangerous weapons.
The rampaging herdsmen descended on a driver heading to Nimbo, shooting him instantly to death and leaving him in the pool of his own blood.
