Reps urge IGP to flush out armed herdsmen from Enugu


Not pleased with the reports from various  parts of the country  on the destruction of farmlands by their cows  and killings of innocent  people  by Fulani  herdsmen,  with the latest report of the gruesome murder of a farmer in Oji-River,  Enugu State,  the House of Representatives has called on the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, to flush out armed herdsmen invading communities in Enugu State.
The lawmakers  made the call following  a motion moved by the Deputy Minority Leader, Toby Okechukwu, on the invasion of the Fulani herdsmen  in Enugu communities and their killings of innocent people in the state. 
Okechukwu, while moving the motion, said: “The House notes the gruesome murder of Mr Eugene lloabani in his farm at Isiokwe village, Amankpunato, Oji River LGA, Enugu State. The House is concerned that with the worsening state of insecurity, our farmers have abandoned their farms for safety, a situation that will result in food shortage, hunger and drought. The House is convinced that bringing the killers to book would serve as deterrence to other criminal elements in the state.”
The House of Representatives  members adopted  the prayers of the motion, and called on the Federal Government to deploy sufficient security personnel in the area.
