Sad! Mothers Protest in Uzo Uwani LGA Over Herdsmen Killing

Mothers of Adani in Uzo Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State trooped out en masse in protest over the incessant attack and killing by Fulani herdsmen on the community on Tuesday.

The Sunday attack in the community which has been ongoing led to the death of many indigenes while many others were left injured.

The mothers in a viral video urged the state government to intervene and save the villagers from the attack.

Contributing, Senator Okey Ezea representing Enugu North Senatorial District, on Tuesday, extended his condolence to the community and urged all the security agencies to fish out the marauders.

“Just when we thought that killings of our people at Uzo-Uwani LGA of Enugu State had stopped, non-state actors, on Sunday, emerged from the bush to murder several defenceless men, women and children at Adani. My heart bleeds!

I enjoin the state actors — police, DSS, Nigerian army and other security operatives — to fish out these marauders and deliver justice to them as quickly as possible.

While I extend my condolences to our people currently mourning the massacre of their loved ones at Adani, I urge our people to be patient and law-abiding while we wait for the government’s response to the situation.”

Meanwhile, the Enugu State Commissioner of Police, on Monday, CP Kanayo Uzuegbu issued an immediate quit order to criminal elements in the state, saying they either leave town or meet their Waterloo, as there would be no relenting in the effort to annihilate them out of the state.

Speaking when he led a team of Combat Police Operatives to Adani in Uzo-Uwani LGA where two brothers, Mr. Ogbonna Fidelis Anene, aged 33, and Ogbonna John Onyeka, aged 25, were gruesomely murdered on their way home from their farm on Sunday.

CP Kanayo, expressing sadness over the ugly incident, assured the people of Adani that a crack squad had been sent after the perpetrators to bring them under the full weight of the law, while also reinforcing security in the border local government area.
