Herdsmen welcome Soludo after election
...as Anambra community flees over attack
Herdsmen living in Anambra State welcome the state’s governor-elect, Churkwuma Soludo after he won the November 6 election.
Consequently, many residents of the community have reportedly fled to seek shelter in other areas.
Chigbata also alleged that security agents had turned a blind eye to the atrocious acts of the herdsmen, including kidnapping, rape and destruction of the property despite reports to them.
“There was a time I was in a friend’s car and as we were driving we did not know that they laid ambush and they fired at us, killing my friend who was driving the car on the spot, maybe they thought I was the one driving.
“Some have even suggested we employ the services of Eastern Security Network, ESN, of IPOB since the government security operatives are of no assistance to us as they have left us to die in the hands of the Fulani herdsmen with they bought over government security operatives.”
However, spokesman of the Anambra Police Command, Tochukwu said the Command was not yet aware of the alleged attacks.
