Fulani Herdsmen Cruelly Kill 50Yrs Old Senior Staff Of Delta State University, A Father Of 14 (Pics)
Mr. Idama, a father of 14 children, married to three wives had gone to his farm, last Friday, to mount surveillance after discovering that herdsmen were allegedly constantly uprooting his cassava and feeding their cows with them.
It was gathered that Idama, who went to the farm with his motorcycle encountered the herdsmen same night and challenged them. But they pounced on him with machetes, cutting him on the hand, leg, face and everywhere until he gave up the ghost.
Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, DSP Andrew Aniamaka, confirmed the killing of Idama when contacted by Vanguard, saying that the police evacuated the remains to Ufuoma Clinic in the area for autopsy and investigations were on by homicide detectives to unmask the killers, no matter their status.
Hon. Evance Ochuko Ivwurie, Member Representing Ethiope East State Constituency in Delta State House of Assembly, also confirmed the incident in a statement issued earlier today saying:
''I have reported to the whole world that I was briefed by my constituents residing across Ethiope East Mainland; towns/villages and Ethiope East Hinterlands; Ovre-Eku/Abraka/Igun of the sighting by some of them of an unspecified Helicopter said to be dropping supplies in the same Ovre-Eku/Abraka axis.
''Since after my receipt of that brief, five of my Constituents namely; Mr. Philip Akpine, Mr.Francis Okotie, Mr. Sunday Couple, Mr. Eyabigun Akpovena and Mr. Sunday Idama, have all been slaughtered by these mercenaries; Fulani Herdsmen in their farmlands in Ovre-Abraka which is a safe haven, dwelling and business place for thousands of Fulani Herdsmen and their cattle.
''My people are helplessly susceptible, defenceless and vulnerable to this menace. The Herdsmen escapade and atrocities against my exposed constituents includes killing and Kidnapping them, maiming, raping and attacking them.
''It is estimated that we have over 2,000 Fulani Herdsmen and over 10,000 cattle in the various parts of the vast deserts- which many people have christened Ethiope East Sambisa Forest.
''I wish to appeal to the security agencies to visit the "Ethiope East Sambisa Forest" and properly investigate the activities of the criminal elements of the herdsmen and bring them to justice.
