Suspected herdsmen kill two in Enugu community



Two people have reportedly been killed in a fresh attack by suspected herdsmen on Mgbuji and Agu-Amede Communities in Isi-Uzo Council area of Enugu State.

Punch reported that two people were also injured in the attack which occurred on Thursday June 30.

Spokesman of Mgbuji Community, Chijioke Ogbodo decried the persistent attack on the community, alleging that the security agencies were paying a deaf ear.

He alleged that the entire community is now living under the mercy of Fulani militias whom he said were foreign machinery.

Ogbodo said;

“They killed two of our people yesterday (Thursday) between Mgbuji and Agu-Amede. The killings happened at Onu-Mgbede Mgbuji. Two that survived were in the hospital now as we speak. This is still happening after all the promises from the police, Army, and DSS (Department of State Services) that they are going to provide adequate security. As I speak to you there is no single security man in Eha-Amufu.

“Now, they have expanded their attacks to Agu-Amede Community. They are now attacking Mgbuji and Agu-Amede Communities simultaneously. We have over 6,000 internally displaced people in Mgbuji community alone and nobody is interested about their welfare.”
