Igbo group blames FG for Enugu killings by Fulani herdsmen

Social sharing
An Igbo group, the Igbo Awareness for Develop­ment Initiative (IADI), has condemned the Fulani herdsmen killing in Enugu State, blaming the inaction of the Federal Govern­ment and the Enugu State Gov­ernment for the occurrence.
It also urged the state govern­ment to follow the footsteps of Ekiti State Government by sup­porting local vigilante to protect their communities.
The killing which took place on August 26th, 2016 in Ndiagu, At­takwu, Akegbe-Ugwu communi­ties in Nkanu-West Local Govern­ment Area is the latest addition to a recurring Fulani Herdsmen on­slaught in Enugu State.
A statement signed by Dr. Rand­ie Anayo Dikeukwu for Board of Trustees of the group said;
“Sadly, this situation has been made possible by the inability of the Federal government to crack­down on the herdsmen as well as the failure of the Executive Gov­ernor of Enugu State—Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to devise meaningful security strategy to protect peo­ple living in the State.
“We condemn also the silence of Igbo politicians, especially the House of Representative Mem­bers and Senators who have con­tinued to act as if the slaughter of their kinsmen back home is not happening. By not coming out to condemn or protest these killings, they have shown that they care only about themselves rather than the communities or people they purport to represent.
“Governor Ugwuanyi should follow the Ekiti State gover­nor’s (Governor Ayo Fayose) approach to provide logistics and moral support to commu­nity vigilante groups if further encroachment and onslaught by the Herdsmen is to be pre­vented.
