There’s tension in Obudi Agwa community in Oguta council area of Imo State after Fulani herdsmen killed an indigene of the community in his farm.

According to TheSun, the deceased Elder Ozoemena Iriaka had gone to his farm in the morning hours when he saw Fulani herdsmen grazing their cattle on his farm and that he had confronted them.

It was further learnt that the deceased had tried to chase away the cows from his farm, an action which had angered the herdsmen, who attacked him with their machetes, inflicting deep cuts on the back of his head as he tried to escape from them.

Mr Declan Odime Okaru, an indigene of the community, lamented that the herdsmen have been in the habit of grazing their cows on the farms of the community.

According to him, “Ozoemena Iriaka, who is one of the elders in this community, had gone to his farm and met the Fulani herdsmen grazing their cows on his farm, and when he tried to chase away the cows the herdsmen had attacked him and even when he tried to escape from the attack, they had chased after him and macheted him to death. The herdsmen inflicted a deep machete cut on the back of his head and even on his two hands and then ran away.

“But when we got the report, the youths mobilised and in the process, we caught up with one of the fleeing herdsmen who we handed over to the Oguta Police Ddivision because we had restrained the angry youths not to take the law into their own hands.”

He added: “Those herdsmen have been in the habit of grazing their cows on the farms of the people of this community and when the people challenge them they will attack you.”

No federal government will deliver you from killer herdsmen, get that into your skull, defend yourself, don't be stupid to challenge armed men with nothing, get yourself a defensive weapon.

You would have killed the herdsman immediately, it is a matter of self defence. Our laxity is encouraging the herdsmen, teeth for tat is the law of Moses which should be embraced through out eastern Nigeria that should be our weapon. The supreme court governor Hope will not help either as he is an accomplice 
The Igbos defend yourselves, fish out sycophants and saboteurs and banish them from Igboland
