The outrageous kidnapping, massacre and raping of innocent people across the country in large frequencies by alleged Fulani herdsmen have grabbed the attention of the Abia State House of Assembly. The House passed a resolution on Fridate to mandate security agencies to check the dangerous activities of herdsmen in the state.
Meanwhile the Chairman of South East Town Unions, Emeka Diwe, has blasted president of Nigeria Muhammadu Buhari over his silence on the biting issue.
Chief Emeka said:
“As leaders of town unions in the five states of the South-East, we are disturbed by the activities of the rampaging Fulani herdsmen who have continued to destroy farmlands, rape women and kill innocent people. We are further worried that President Buhari is yet to give this problem the serious attention it deserves. The Fulani herdsmen attack did not start today, but the question is: Were they this daring in their attacks before Buhari emerged President?
“People have been killed in Agatu; in Delta, a monarch was kidnapped and found dead. Millions of others have been displaced from their homes. Now Ukpabi-Nimbo community in Enugu has been attacked and people massacred. Enough is enough; we won’t tolerate this again in any part of Igbo land. Nigeria is treading a dangerous path. The President should do everything to douse the suspicion. We are not saying he sent them, but he has the authority to check the attacks to avoid reprisal.”
