Onitcha-Ukwuani/Nigeria: The people of Amoji in Ndokwa West Local Government Area of Delta state has called on the authourity to save their lives, as the activities of Fulani herdsmen had caused the community numerous pain as they had lost lives, properties and agricultural products.
Speaking to Ndokwa Reporters, Mr Endurance Ejie, said that the threat to live and properties in the area has become so unbearable, especially since 2015 when the herdsmen gave a quite notice to an adjoining village, Okuke to vacate to give way for the animals to graze in the area.
According Mr Ejie, the incident of that year was so bad that when the people of Okuke did not vacate as demanded, the farming village was attacked and many of the people, including youths from Amoji were injured.
Mr Ejie said as it is the people of Amoji and the neighbouring communities are living in fears as there had been continuous invasion of their farmlands by the marauding Fulani herdsmen and their cattle.
Ndokwa Reporters gathered that some weeks back, a teacher was attacked and he is presently walking in clutches.
Mr Ejie called for the deployment of more police and other security services to the area to curtail and stop the activities of the herdsmen.
