Ebonyi governor sacks herdsmen from university premises

05 May 2016, 15:09

Ebonyi - Ebonyi state governor, Engr. David Umahi, has ordered the eviction herdsmen who settled in the premises of the state university.

iUmahi ordered the State Commissioner of Police, CP Peace Ibekwe Abdallah to carry out the order.

The governor, who gave the order in Abakaliki during the agriculture summit organized by the state government to boost rice production in the state, noted that the university environment was no place for nomadic herdsmen.

He, however, opposed the calls for reprisal attacks on Fulani herdsmen in the south-east zone for the brutal killing of over thirty persons in Ukpabi Nimbo, Uzouwani Local government in Enugu state by the herdsmen.

He insisted that though he was the first South East governor to publicly condemn the dastardly act, the Hausa Fulani community in the state has a long history of peaceful settlement and have not been implicated in any criminal activity.
