FREEPRESS – It was a tragic moment yesterday as angry mob greeted Okada community over a young lady that was butchered by Fulani herdsmen.
The young lady was in her farm working to eke out living for her family when these Fulani marauders butchered her and cut off one of her legs and took it away.
The angry mob beseeched the community and blocked the High-way road and other adjoining roads, thereby causing traffic jam for about 8 hours and commuters were left stranded.
An eye witnesses said “the young lady was killed early yesterday morning in her farm and that they have had enough of these Fulani herdsmen menace in their community and the country at large and the president has kept mum over the activities of the Fulani marauders”.
Another eye witnesses also said ” these Fulani herdsmen has destroyed their farmlands, crops and plundered their means of livelihood with their cattle and that they are now scared of going to their own farms because of the fear of these Fulani killers and therefore called on international organizations to come to their aid because the president has been consistently keeping mum over the activities of these Fulani herdsmen in the country” he said.
Femi Fani Kayode said in his twitter handle yesterday that “I read with disgust the response of Miyetti Allah to the rejection of their demand to have a militia in the east. To say u will take Igboland by force because they won’t allow you to arm your Fulani herdsmen is dangerous and reckless. You are baying for blood and begging for war!”
