The Eastern Security Network (ESN) operatives have released a photograph of a suspected Fulani terrorist killed during the violence which has engulfed Umuogudu Akpu-Ngbo Community in the Ohaukwu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State in the south eastern part of Nigeria since Monday.
Sources in the community told Sahara Reporters that the suspected Fulani terrorist was one of the several Fulani Herdsmen who invaded the community in Ebonyi to allegedly carry out a reprisal attacked on the community, but unfortunate for him, he was gunned down by the ESN operatives.
A top source revealed that the Fulani terrorist killed by ESN was among those fuelling the crisis in various communities of Ebonyi State.
According to the words of our reliable source; “This is one of the Fulani terrorists that came to attack the Ngbo community in Ebonyi province on Monday. Despite the charm tied around his waist, the gallant ESN operatives still sent him to the underworld to face proper judgment by the Almighty.
“God bless ESN operatives forever. The ESN is our last hope. Since the state government cannot help us. Governor Dave Umahi’s best effort after several months of bloodshed is to come up with a toothless outfit called Ebube Agu,” the source stated.
Suspected Fulani herdsmen had in March 2021 killed more than 25 persons in Egedegede community in Ishielu Local Government Area of Ebonyi state. The governor later said despite protecting Fulani herdsmen in the state and other South-East region, they still killed people of Ebonyi State.
Governor Umahi, during a visit to the community, confirmed that Fulani herdsmen killed at least 15 persons from the information he got. He said; “We are in Ishielu where the AK-47 Fulani herdsmen came on Monday and killed 15 members of this community.
I remember a year ago when we had an incident of the killing of two herdsmen within this same location. And immediately, the security agencies, the local government chairman and community leaders all came together to condemn the attack and killings. We immediately asked the security agencies to fish out the people who took part in the attack.
“We fished them out and as we talk, they are standing trial in Ebonyi State. The community, the government and the security agencies appeased the Fulani herdsmen and made peace with them. And now, it is very shocking that overnight, all the Fulani herdsmen in Ishielu Local Government Area of the state have vacated which means that the local Fulani herdsmen are part of the conspiracy of the killings of our people,” Governor Dave Umahi stated during a Press briefing.
