Report reaching us has it that the community of Onaege, Ogbaru L.G.A in Anambra state were attacked by some fulani herdsmen earlier today the 17th of January 2017, at about 11:45am. The attack was said to have claimed the life of a man and his entire family according to Mr. Divine Ezeani.
In a brief interview with Prisca Chiamaka Abel, he said "Fulani Herders along with their cows came to our sister's farmland and started to destroy her crops without any reason, and when she queried the rationale behind such wicked act which saw all of her labour go down the drain, she got a matchete cut in response which sent her to an early grave.
"When the news of her gruesome death reached her husband and 20yr old son who was away as at the time of the attack, they quickly rushed to find out if what they heard was true and on getting there, they met the herdsmen who did not hesitate in hacking them down as well."
The Onaege villagers in outrage of such heinous crime surrounded the Fulani Herdsmen and in a bid to avenge the death of their kinsmen, were arrested by a troop of Nigerian Soldiers who rallied in rescue of the herdsmen to the detriment of the community's safety. As at the time of writing this report, the Fulani herdsmen have been released and the Onaege Indigenes are still in held in their custody.
What injustice could be greater than this? One Nigeria means death!
