Governor Udom Commiserates With Family Of Farmer Killed By Herdsmen (photos) by IamHeWrites: 7:04am On Aug 14
Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel has commiserated with the family of a farmer murdered by suspected herdsmen in Ikot Obio in Mkpat Enim Local Government Area of the state and victims of the attack.

It was gathered that the farmer identified as Friday Etor, went to his farm and met a herd of cattle feeding on his crops. He confronted the herdsmen and asked them to leave his land but they resisted.

In the ensuing disagreement, the herdsmen shot him dead. Several people were equally attacked by the herdsmen. An 11-year-old boy Nsikak Udoh, was also hospitalised, following bullet wounds he sustained in the attack, Igbere TV reports.

Addressing the people of Ikot Obio Nso, Ikpa Ikono clan where the dastardly act took place, Governor Emmanuel who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Dr Emmanuel Ekuwem, said preying on the lives of the people of the state by suspected Fulani herdsmen will not be accepted.

“Governor Udom Emmanuel is very saddened and unhappy by this unprovoked attack on our people. He called me by 1am in the midnight and asked me to be here this morning to console the people and calm frayed nerves.

Although we are peaceful and civilized in Akwa Ibom state, the elasticity of our patience is not infinite. As it is said in science when the limit of elasticity is exhausted there must be rupture and we do not want that” he said.

In other news, 10days after Aliyat Tiletile went missing, she has been found on Sunday, August 11, coincidently falls on her birthday which has relieved the tension of her family.

Labelling theory. This might prompt the innocent herdsmen to start killing people. We all know the issue of herdsmen have been politicized

Nothing is going to happen if we continue in our usual way of speaking grammar after each killing. What is wrong with us in this country ? Mr President said sometimes ago that the murderous herdsmen might not necessarily be Nigerians. I did not agree with him,in fact I was so furious with him until I visited Ifewara in Osun state.

Ifewara is very close to the ancient city of Ile Ife,the cradle of civilization of Yoruba race. It is one of the major gold mining centres/locations in Osun state,precisely Ijeshaland. I was rudely shocked to see quite a huge numbers of fulanis and other tribes from Senegal,Gambia,Guinea,Chad,Niger Bukina Faso etc in that sleepy village. Some few weeks ago,there was a skirmish in that village caused by these foreigners. It could have snowballed into a very serious crisis because the indigenous youth of Ifewara responded quickly and decisively to the excesses of the those foreigners. It took the intervention of the king to resolve that issue.

These herdsmen are not Nigerians. We should deal with them in such a way that they will be scared of crossing our borderlines. Agreed,it may be difficult to differentiate between local Fulani's and foreign ones. If we agree however, that our local fulanis don't carry arms,then anyone that is seen with arms should be dealt with immediately.

Any herdsmen settlement that is close to any crime scene ,like the one above, should be sacked immediately because there is collaboration therein certainly.

We cannot continue to treat the murderous excesses of these herdsmen with kid glove. We should be proactive rather than being reactive.

Good morning and may the soul of the victim rest in peace.
