Odo stated that all members of their community who were residing outside the community had been summoned home, and that by Tuesday, the community would transport the bodies of the deceased to the Enugu State Government House to meet with Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, who had effectively abandoned them.

According to Odo, “They (Fulani militias) invaded first on Saturday, killed two people. Today, they invaded the community again and killed eight people including our women and children. So many other people about, 25 of them were equally wounded. They’re in the hospital; we don’t know how many people are going to survive.”

According to Odo, locals are now fleeing their homes due to the increasing attacks.

Odo lamented the constant attacks by Fulani herdsmen, claiming that no government security came to their aid in any of the attacks.

“Our people cannot fight them with their bare hands. They arrive in large groups, armed with AK-47 rifles and other lethal weapons, and shoot and damage buildings for hours on end.

“The government will only send soldiers to communities in other South-East states to hunt down and kill members of pro-Biafra groups, particularly the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), but they will not send soldiers to our communities to stop attacks by herdsmen and Islamic terrorists.

“That is the government’s hypocrisy. People in my community now regard soldiers and other security personnel as sympathizers and collaborators with Islamic terrorists disguised as herdsmen attempting to conquer our lands.”
