Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has failed to rescue his people from the hands of the Fulani Herdsmen who have been reportedly gaining support from the Nigerian security forces.
While it is clear that the Nigerian security forces are there to give maximum support to the Fulani Herdsmen whose attack on Delta people have increased in the past weeks, The Delta State governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, on Friday in Asaba called on the same Fulani security agencies to stop activities of herdsmen in parts of the state before it results into a major crisis.
As if there is nothing else the governor could do to rescue his people from the murderous Fulani Herdsmen, the governor, who made the call while playing host to the Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) in charge of Zone 5, Mr. Rasheed Akintunde specifically expressed concern about the safety of residents of three communities in Uwheru, Ughelli north council area where herdsmen have reportedly laid siege
“There is a particular community in Delta State, at a point in time, we discussed it at security council meeting and just yesterday (Thursday) while I was in Ughelli North for my regular Town Hall meeting, the people raised a very serious issue about the Uwheru community.
“It is a very pathetic situation, because the President-General of the community spoke on the fact that out of seven communities, three of them are actually occupied by the herdsmen and the farmers are told that they must pay the herdsmen before they can enter their farms and that is very disturbing because it is strange for indigenes to pay money before they can enter their farms and I believe something has to be done before it evolves into a worst devastating situation.
