S’East govs storm Abuja over Fulani herdsmen attacks


Apparently peeved by the relentless killings and attacks on communities in the South-East geopolitical zones, governors of the region have headed to Abuja to lodge their displeasure to the Federal Government.

It is believed that the governors are not merely on a trip to complain but to make some definite demands on the presidency concerning the unchallenged impunities of Fulani herdsmen in the region.

Governor Rochas Okorocha, who returned to Imo State Tuesday from a medical trip, is said to have rallied his colleagues in the region to action, describing the killings by the nomads as a national calamity.

While the governors of Imo, Enugu and Abia left for Abuja Wednesday morning, the governor of Ebonyi State left Tuesday evening for Abuja.

It is not very clear the disposition of Governor Willy Obiano of Anambra State on the issue as he appears to always distance himself from the activities of the South-East governors.

For the other four governors of the region, they are evidently pained by the wanton killing campaigns of the Fulani nomads and are sufficiently embarrassed and insulted by the fact that in the face of such killings, the system renders them helpless and unable to protect their citizens.
