BIAFRA: AGAIN, FULANI HERDSMEN RAIDS ANOTHER ENUGU COMMUNITY, KIDNAPS TWO LOCALS, ONE FEARED DEAD

Wednesday, 21st September, 2016


Just few weeks after launching an attack on Ndiagu Attakwu Community of Nkanu West Local governments Area of Enugu state, Fulani herdsmen, yesterday, made good of their threat when they launched another attack on Aku community in Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area of the State.

The rampaging herdsmen kidnapped two villagers while another is feared to have been killed.

A community source revealed that the herdsmen attacked some farmers working in their farmlands, kidnapped two of them just as one person is feared to have being killed in the attack.

Meanwhile, last week, traditional rulers and leaders of Aku community, raised fresh alarm over threats by the herdsmen to avenge the alleged theft of 300 cows and slaughtering of about 10 others by unknown persons in the area.

Addressing a news conference in Enugu, the six traditional rulers of Aku, including the chairman Aku Traditional Rulers’ Council Igwe V.O Attah, expressed concern over a certain comment said to have been made in the presence of the Divisional Police Officer in the area, by one Alhaji Sadiq, about an imminent attack on the Aku Community.

They had urged relevant authorities to accord the threat to the lives of the villagers the gravity and urgency it deserved.

The community leaders recalled that on September 8, 2016, Alhaji Sadiq, one of the leaders of the Fulani herdsmen in the South East, raised the alarm that youths from Aku attacked herdsmen camp near Aku Town, robbed them of N10, 000, butchered 10 cows and proceeded to steal 300 cows.

The traditional rulers, who adopted a communiqué issued by Aku Community leaders, noted that evidence available showed that Aku youths were not responsible for the attack adding that the attack did not take place within Aku boundary but within Agu Affa/Agu Egede in Udi L.G.A.

The statement read in part, “That security report from the Igbo-Etiti DPO during an interactive session revealed that the attackers were suspected armed robbers and not youths of Aku community.”
