Anambra community sends SOS to Gov. Soludo as  Fulani herdsmen terrorize villagers with AK-47 rifles

Published

The Traditional Ruler of Mkpunando-Aguleri in Anambra-East Local Government Area of Anambra State, His Royal Highness Igwe Johnson Mbanefo, has called on the Government of Anambra State and Security agencies to intervene quickly in the invasion of the community by Fulani herdsmen. He said the herdsmen were terrorising villagers with AK-47 rifles while their cattle were destroying farmlands in the area.

Lamenting the sad situation, Mbanefo said that villagers have all run to safety and that none could do anything for fear of being killed by the marauding elements.

Although the traditional ruler said the Divisional Police Officer of Otuocha Division and local vigilantes had launched a reprisal attack on the armed Fulani herdsmen, they could not apprehend any as the Fulani herdsmen had absconded with their guns on seeing them.

Mbanefo said the DPO saw the level of damage and destruction done to the farmlands as Cassava and other crops planted immediately after the 2022 flood disaster were all destroyed by their cattle.

Mbanefo also forwarded the SOS letter he wrote to the Anambra-East council chairman and copied others seeking urgent rescue of his community from the terror and mayhem of armed Fulani herdsmen lurking in the area.

The SOS reads, “I want to inform you that Fulani herdsmen led by one Alahaji Kawukaw have invaded my Community through Ojor Community of Enugu State for two weeks now and terrorizing us with AK 47.

All the cassava stem we suffered for last year as a result of the flood that is now germinating have become food for Fulani cattle.

I have since then calming youths of my community who wants to confront them not to do so. I am even tired of persuading them.

“I am therefore pleading with you as a matter of urgency to save us from this ugly situation.
