|Herdsmen Still Kidnapping Our People Like Fowls, Abia Communities Cry Out by Chinkoalhaji34: 9:54pm On Jul 09, 2022
Communities in Umunneochi Local Government Area of Abia State have lamented that kidnapping in the area by suspected herdsmen has become a daily routine despite efforts by the State Government to curb the menace.
Youth Leader of Umunneochi LGA, Prince Divine Uche said this Wednesday at Umunneochi Council headquarters when Senator Mao Ohuabunwa who represented Abia North in the eight senates visited the people to identify with them over their predicaments, vowed that the youths would no longer watch helplessly if Government failed to take action.
According to him, after the kidnap of the Methodist Prelate, Dr Samuel Uche, herdsmen kidnapped people like fowls around Umunneochi despite the presence of military checkpoint at Lomara junction.
” Three days ago, a boy of less than 15 years was Kidnapped. The other day, they also Kidnapped another boy riding motorcycle and took him to the bush demanding N3 million ransom. But the boy is a prayer warrior, he prayed and they slept then he escaped but he was severely tortured.”
The youth leader further lamented that before now, only women who went to the farm were abducted and raped by the rampaging herders but nowadays, they invade homes to grab women for rape.
According to him, the herders stormed Umuerem village to grab a woman in her house but unfortunately for them the villagers raised alarm and they fled back to the forest.
He lamented that despite the continued presence of soldiers at Lomara military checkpoint, kidnapping for ransom and criminal activities of herdsmen had gone on unchallenged.
The youth leader expressed rage that the soldiers had refused to unblock the road linking Ihube community in Imo State with Isuochi despite the order by the State Government.

This is the kind of news I don't want to hear.
Where are the young men in the community? If you can't arm yourselves and confront your enemies eye balls to eye balls, is it Buhari that will come and drive his boys?
It's not good to be a coward when God has created you to be a man. Wake up and stop crying like widows.

So others they were kidnapping and killing aren't christians and prayer warriors. This is pure African mentality
