Enugu: Ugbawka, 3 other communities place Gov Ugwuanyi on alert over alleged plot by Fulani herdsmen to attack

Newsie Events Media:

The attention of the Enugu State and Federal government has been called to by the people of Ugbawka, Nenwe, Nkerefi and Nara over alleged planned attack by herders to unleash mayhem in their communities, TheSun reports.

It was gathered that the herders recently left their settlement at the boundary between Ogbaku and  Ugbawka, in Nkanu East Local Government Area of the state. 

One of the traditional rulers who spoke on behalf of the community, to the reporter on the condition of anonymity, said that they got the information from a reliable source and wouldn’t want to treat it with levity. 

He said that the suspected herders have threatened to carry out their action in three days time. According to him, the community has never in the past attacked any herdsman living with them. 
He, therefore, wondered why they would issue such a threat. 

He said: “We are calling on the Federal Government and Enugu State government never to take this threat as a joke. We have seen where it happened in the past. We got our information from a reliable source. One of them came to us and told us that he was relocating with his family, when we asked him why, he said that the Fulanis that left the community have planned to attack our own people in three days time. ”. 

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer for the command, ASP Daniel Ndukwe, asked the reporter to send him the details of the villages so he could verify the report.
