HERDSMEN FLEE AS UNKNOWN GUNMEN KILL 12 COWS IN AKWA IBOM STATE

Unknown Gunmen attacked Fulani Herdsmen violating the ban on open grazing in Essien Udim Local Government Akwa Ibom state.

The Gunmen on motorbikes defied the curfew put in place by the state government to carry out the attack, early Sunday Morning.

The attack resulted in the death of 12 cows, while the Fulani herders took to their heels.

Mr Anthony Luke, the Chairman of Essien Udim Local Government,  while reacting to the development, described the incident as unfortunate, “giving the fact the Local Government has in the recent times become an epicentre of cult wars with security agencies including the Police, Customs and Army as well as government institutions as objects of attack.”
