Herdsmen Are R*ping Our Wives, Children – Anambra Men

As much as 15 communities in Orumba-South Local Government of Anambra State on Tuesday raised the alarm over the menace of Fulani herdsmen in their area.

They alleged that the herdsmen were attacking, molesting their wives and children.

Spokesperson for the communities, Chukwudi Ugochukwu, stated this at Orumba-South Council secretariat in Umunze during a stakeholders’ meeting of the people of the area.

He added that the herdsmen also allowed their cows to graze on farms, thereby destroying people's livelihoods.

Ugochukwu said some women and girls had been r*ped on their way to the farms.

He said no fewer than 20 of such cases had being recorded, adding that he would not go beyond for fear of stigmatising the victims.

He said, “We live along the boundary with Imo State by Arondizuogu. All the farmlands there have been devastated by the herdsmen. Some of our women have been r*ped on the farmlands but they refused to talk so that they will not be stigmatised. The entire Umunze is under threat.”

  4. In a lawless country such as this are you still relying on the government for protection? heaven helps those who help themselves, no tribe has the monopoly of violence.
