Fulani herdsmen kill three, kidnap two others in Enugu.

Displaced inhabitants of Ogbete-Mgbuji Community in Enugu State’s Eha-Amufu, Isi-Uzo Local Government Area have raised alarm that Fulani militia have continued to terrorize the community despite pledges from the state’s security chiefs. Residents reported that three additional individuals were killed and two others were kidnapped for ransom just 11 days after the Commissioner of Police and other chiefs of security services visited the town.

The locals bemoaned how the Fulani militias had made their lives unpleasant, noting that they had been unable to access their farms in order to harvest their cassava and other crops. The town had been invaded by Fulani herdsmen since late last year, and they had been killing residents and kidnapping them for ransom.

On Friday, June 17, 2022, the heads of the state’s security agencies visited the troubled neighborhood and promised to provide enough security for them based on firsthand information about the situation. However, 11 days after the distressed town was promised security, herdsmen terror attacks were still going strong.

The herders were crossing the expressway with their cattle when a commercial bus crushed the cow to death. Angry at the situation, the herders confronted the driver and demanded payment for the dead cow.

According to reports, the request for payment sparked an argument that turned into a fight, during which the herders allegedly stabbed the victim to death. The death of the victim led to a clash between motorists and herders in the area.
