Okowa: Military Accompanied Suspected Herdsmen In Killing 8 Persons by Nobody: 8:53am On Feb 16, 2020
Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has decried renewed attacks by suspected herdsmen in Avwon, Agadama, Ohoror and other communities of Uwheru Kingdom, Ughelli North Local Government Area of the state.

According to Okowa, suspected herdsmen accompanied by unidentified armed personnel attacked the communities in what has become an annual routine, killing over eight persons and injured many others.

He said the crisis started on Thursday and as of Saturday, lives and property, including farms, had perished.

The governor said, “The unwarranted attacks and killing of innocent locals in Avwon, Agadama and Ohoror communities of Uwheru Kingdom in Ughelli North Local Government Area and the wickedness of suspected herdsmen alleged to be aided and abetted by unidentified military personnel are mindless.

“I, however, appeal to the affected communities to remain calm and peaceful. I commiserate with the communities and families on the unfortunate loss of their loved ones.

“I have directed the Commissioner of Police and the Brigade Commander, 63 Brigade, Nigerian Army, to rise to the occasion and bring the culprits to justice.

“As a state, our people have been very receptive to herdsmen and other visitors, but our hospitality and welcoming disposition should not be taken as an act of cowardice.

“The state government will continue to encourage peaceful and harmonious relations between Deltans and their visitors but will not watch outsiders attack and kill our people any longer.”

We have heard stories of claims that the airforce has provided air support for fulani militia and now a whole governor is saying the Army has provided support for them and yet we want to pretend like Buharis doesn't endorse the excesses of these people if this is true

Bob Marley once said "Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds". The earlier we understand that those in power only care about thier own pocket and immediate families, the better for us. The only thing that would be done about this incident is the governor condemning the attack with words alone and no action that's why this people will continue to kill human beings as if its nothing. As usual, the army will soon come out to deny this but we know the truth. We need ditch this bull crap South-south and south east nonsense and look for a way to defend ourselves before this people finish us all. I repeat, the government doest give a shit about us!

They are cowards, and only go after unsuspecting, defenceless individuals and villages! One-on-one, they CANNOT face their victims either in a fist-fight or on a community level once everyone is armed equally! But as things stand today, they're protected by the Nigerian state and this is what gives them the boldness to come down south to murder and terrorise people, so it would not be wise to invite them to come try their madness in your state as they would get away with it and nothing will happen! smiley

You are calling on police and army that you said accompanied them.

Don't get your speaker to pass very strict anti-open grazing laws.

Oohhh.. South and cowardly Governors.

The other day, it was the governor of Enugu crying.

Governor, Deltans voted you to protect them, lip service is not enough.

You should have been in Aso Rock now meeting Buhari to ask him "Why are your people KILLING my people".

Governors should rise up in defence of their subjects

This is not the time to play politics with people's lives of those affected. If those attacked were his kinsmen his actions will be different

How can a govt continue to fold it arms and watch these criminals perpetuate their evil act without any of them brought to justice?
How did we get to this stage as a nation?

Truly this fulani herdsmen are receiving military training!

Buhari is a disaster.
