Lawmaker raises the alarm over planned Fulani herdsmen invasion in Enugu

A member representing Awgu- North Constituency at the Enugu State House of Assembly, Honourable Sunday Ude-Okoye, has raised the alarm over alleged plot by some Fulani herdsmen to launch another attack on some communities in the state.

Honourable Ude-Okoye  said this   on Thursday, on the floor of the House, over the planned invasion, while reacting to  a recent attack carried out on Attakwu-Akegbe, Nkanu West Local Government of the state at which a seminarian and a woman, were murdered and three others  injured.

The lawmaker, who also recalled the mayhem carried out on Ukpabi-Nimbo in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of the state, lamented that the herdsmen have threatened to attack another community, Aku, in Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area.

Afraid that if nothing is done urgently, the state is under threat of extinction and pleaded with Nigerians to “come and help us.”

“I wish to condemn  the act that has been ongoing by the Fulanis. I wish to stand here to condemn it. Let other Nigerians help us since the Nigerian Police cannot protect us but rather, to protect the Fulani people.

Meanwhile, the speaker of the House, Edward Uchenna Ubosi, who welcomed members to the House after over a month recess, presented to the House, the new Clerk of the House,  Dr Emmanuel Udeagha, who replaced the former clerk, Mr Christopher Chukwurah.
