ABIA ROYAL FATHER CRIES OUT, SAYS “I LOST VAST ACRES OF FARM LAND TO HERDSMEN INVASION”
The Traditional Ruler of Oriendu Autonomous Community in Ohuhu Clan, Umuahia North L.G.A, His Royal Majesty Eze Pst. Philip Ajomiwe has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to as a matter of urgency call his Fulani Herdsmen brothers to order henceforth so as to curtail the harm and destructions they have brought to all parts of the Country.
Speaking in an interview with Abia Facts Online Television crew in his palace, the Royal Father regretted that so far, he has lost vast acres of farm land and millions of naira to herdsmen as they invaded his farm land recently with their cattles and destroyed all his crops.
He said that the Rural Grazing Area (RUGA) which the government is planning to introduce for them should not be extended to the South East as such will give them more clout to perpetrate their wicked act, and wondered why the Federal government should ask for a land for such settlement when they know that there are inadequacy of land in the South East.
Eze Ajomiwe explained that the provision of a ranch for the cattle in the North should be the best option, and regretted the many lives that have been lost as a result of herdsmen attack.
He further hinted that he had since lodged a complain to the security agencies in the State over the attack done on his farmland, stressing that nothing has been done ever since.
The royal father thanked Governor Okezie Ikpeazu for not yielding to pressure to provide land for such settlement in the State and call on Governors in the South East to emulate what he has done.For publication of your news content, articles, videos or any other news worthy materials, please send to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org .
