Fulani herdsmen over the weekend, kidnapped three building contractors at Amorji, a suburb Onicha-Ukwani community, Ndokwa West Local Government Area, Delta State.
The contractors were abducted while working at a fenced site in the community.
“It was these Fulani herdsmen that kidnapped these persons who were doing their job and took them hostage,” an indigene of the community said.
He added; “For some time now, these herdsmen have occupied almost all the communities in Onicha-Ukwani, particularly Amorji and driven the people out of the village”.
“My people are seriously hungry because there is no food for them to eat, the easy access road to Kwale had been taken over by Fulani herdsmen. The worst part of it all is that they went ahead and brought their families to be feeding from the communities’ crops they invaded.”
When contacted, President of Anti-Cult, Ndokwa nation, Mr. Austin Emu, said: “They have been communicating for ransom, but we do not know if they are purely Fulani herdsmen or if our people are also so involved.”
Police Public Relations Officer the Delta State command, Celestina Kalu said the police was investigating the matter.
