Herdsmen's plot to invade Enugu community unsettles residents

25 April 2016, 12:04

Enugu - An alleged attempt by Fulani herdsmen to invade Ukpabi Nimbo community in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area, Enugu State and displace residents for cattle-grazing has aroused tension among residents.

About 500 Fulani herdsmen were allegedly assembling at Ukpabi Nimbo community in the area to launch an attack.

It was gathered that the herdsmen at Adani had, weekend, imported these 500 others from Nasarawa State to help them invade the community on grounds that some of their cattle were missing.

However, stakeholders from the local government held a meeting to find solutions to the incessant attacks by herdsmen on communities in the local government, leading to the kidnap of over 15 persons and raping of several women from the area along the Nsukka-Adani-Umulokpa road in the last six months.

Those kidnapped allegedly paid ransoms ranging from N500 000 to about N5 million before they regained their freedom.
