Delta warns perpetrators of violence

21 March 2014, 18:14

Abuja - Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has called on traditional rulers to be vigilant and promptly report activities of Fulani herdsmen that are likely to breach the peace in their domains.

The Governor made the call in Warri at a meeting with traditional rulers and chairmen of transition committees of different local government councils of the state.

He observed that in view of the recent spate of violence perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen, vigilance was necessary to identify persons entering the state with sinister motives.

“We welcome visitors to our communities and state but we will not welcome visitors that will give us trouble,” Uduaghan said.

He urged the traditional rulers to be at alert to avoid untoward occurrence between their subjects and Fulani herdsmen, disclosing that government was working with security operatives to forestall clashes between communities and herdsmen.

Clashes over land are commonplace in the area and have resulted in loss of lives

The governor also frowned at recent spate of criminal attack and sabotage of oil and gas installations in the state by some unscrupulous elements.

He warned that the Federal and Delta State Governments “would not be blackmailed by anybody.”

He asked any group having legitimate grievances to channel them through proper means than resorting to violence.

“The government is ready and prepared to deal with such criminals and nobody can threaten this country,” said Uduaghan.
