The communities of Nkpoghoro, Ugwuenu,Ohaisu and Itim,in Afikpo North local area of Ebonyi women have protested against killings, raping and the incessant destruction of their farms by Fulani herdsmen living in the area.

The women numbering hundreds who marched through the major roads in the area, carried sticks and drew marks on their faces and bodies with native chalks, called on the governments to immediately call the herdsmen to order.

The women who also marched to the Afikpo North council Headquarters lamented that the destruction of their farm lands and streams which were the major sources of water in the area was on the increase and called on the state and federal governments to intervene before the matter snowballed into killings.

One of their leaders, Madam Ogwu Idume, said ‘’several efforts have been made previously through discussions with the head of the Hausa/Fulani community in Afikpo with no results’’

Addressing the protesters, Chairman of Afikpo North local Government Area, Oby Oko-enyi, represented by the Coordinator of Afikpo North Development Centre, Mrs.Amuche Otunta Godwin, appealed for calm, adding that violence would not resolve the matter.

She urged the women to stop further protests on the matter, assuring them that the government would wade into the matter and address their complaints as soon as possible.

‘’I appreciate your peaceful protest and commend your courage and efforts.

“But I charge to toe the path of peace and calm. Go home and stop further protests, because the government will soon look into your complaints,” she said.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance”
    between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a fantastic job
    with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome.
    Superb Blog!
