Fulani herdsmen have killed Tamgbo Ogueji, a member of the traditional rulers’ cabinet at Eke community in Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State. The deceased, aged 85, was allegedly shot in his house in the early hours of Sunday, 8-11-2015.
President-General of Eke Town Union, Mr. Anthony Enu, said the community was devastated and angered and the youths were getting restive. He said: “Last year, the same Fulani herdsmen killed two of our brother, Matthew Aniugo and Chiagha Chigbo, in their farms. The town is boiling with anger now.
“We have reported the matter to the Police. We are calling on all relevant authorities to prevail on these Fulani herdsmen to ensure justice for our people.”
Fulani herdsmen are usually blamed for the escalating violence in Plateau in Adamawa, Benue, Kwara, Ondo, Ogun, Anambra and now Enugu.
The Presidency has not responded to escalating spate of attacks on citizens by Fulani herdsmen.
