Herdsmen invade Imo community, destroy multi-million naira crops



Men suspected to be Fulani herdsmen have invaded farmlands in Amakohia-Ubi Autonomous Community In the Owerri West Local Government Area of Imo State, destroying crops and other valuable items estimated at millions of Naira in the process.

The farmers who arrived their farmlands on Thursday morning counted their losses owing to the degree of destruction wreaked on their farmlands by the yet-to-be-identified cattlemen.

Confirming the incident, the President General of the community, Cyril Ndumanya, said the incident had left the community, especially the farmers, in a state of despair.

Ndumanya lamented that with the level of destruction done on the farmlands, hunger was imminent in the community.

He said the activities of Fulani herdsmen had continued to have negative effects on the community, adding that the patience of the villagers was being taken for granted.

He confirmed that no one was raped, nor was anyone killed.

Disclosing the level of destruction, the embittered community leader said, “Our cassava, vegetables, maize and other valuable agricultural products have been completely destroyed and used by the herdsmen to feed their cattles.

“We are talking about millions of Naira and it is not funny at all.”

Another community source told our correspondent that the herdsmen have been giving them difficult time.

One of the victims, Benedict, narrated, “I arrived my farm this morning (Thursday), but my crops such as cassava, vegetables, maize and others have been destroyed.

“The destruction is massive. It has cost myself and family a lot. My family is deeply saddened.”

As of the time of filing this report, the state commissioner of police, Mr. Chris Ezike, have yet to comment on the matter, as he did not answer calls put across to his telephone.
