The President-General of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Nnia Nwodo, has revealed how Fulani herdsmen had over the years killed, maimed and raped Igbo citizens within the past few years.

According to the elder statesman, Fulani herdsmen grazing in the south eastern Nigeria had caused untold pains the people of the region.

Speaking with newsmen during the weekend, the Ohaneze chieftain called on the federal government to urgently intervene on the ugly incidents.

He said: “The peaceful coexistence between previously peace-loving Fulani herdsmen, who herded their cattle with long canes and our local farmers has been replaced by an era of AK-47 totting and rampaging herdsmen who kill, maim, rape our people and destroy our farms.

“Not one of them is ever arrested for illegal possession of firearms. Even those arrested in Nimbo for mercilessly killing our people remain unprosecuted by the Northern dominated law enforcement agents.”

Similarly, an Igbo chieftain in Ebonyi State, Chief Abia Onyike, alleged that the Fulani herdsmen had recently become a militia group charged with the continuation of the Igbo genocide in Nigeria.

“The attacks have led to the loss of innocent lives in Igboland resulting in a culture of pestilence, fear and sometimes defiance.

“Ndigbo have been compelled to experience a life of extreme bestiality, violence and brutality, which is alien to their culture” Also in Abia State, Secretary to the Abia State Government, SSG, Dr. Eme Okoro, has lamented the menace of the Fulani herdsmen, who frequently attack his people who are mainly farmers and urged President Buhari to call them to order.
