March 17, 2017 – Fulani Gunmen Kidnap 15 Travellers On Benin Auchi Okene Highway, Kill Fleeing Politician

Some kidnappers suspected to be Fulani herdsmen in the early hours of yesterday allegedly swooped on travelers along the busy Benin- Auchi-Okene highway, kidnapped 15 people and killed the immediate past chairman of Etsako East Local Government Area of Edo State.

The gunmen were said to have stopped many of the motorists at the popular Ogbemudia Farm at Iguevbihobo village, where they searched all occupants of the vehicles with the victims made to lie face down on the road.

We gathered that the former council Chairman, Mr. Suleiman Afegbua, a cousin to the All Progressives Congress (APC) stalwart in the state, Prince Kassim Afegbua, was said to have attempted to escape from the scene of the attack when the gunmen opened fire on him.

2 others who sustained gunshot injuries are currently receiving treatment at undisclosed hospital in Benin city.

    @Bok I totally agree with you. I’ve said that within me ever before opening or clicking on this headline on my phone. I never knew someone else has also made this observation. As soon as Buhari returned to the country, Fulani tribes men suddenly became more bolder in unleashing pandemonium, mayhem and destruction of lives and properties first in AGATU in which close to 100 people were killed more recently before their assault in other region. This is why accusation about the president will continue to trailed in the country for his failure to declare an emergency response into what has now become a threat to our national security. It appears the continuous lose of innocent lives caused by this tribal terrorist men means nothing to him. This act of keeping silence while the blood of people are been spilled virtually on a daily basis is totally against what is expected of him as a leader of a country with divers ethnic groups. He has to respond to the war mongering Fulani tribes men and their atrocious act to other peace loving nigerians in order to avoid a total breakdown of law and order.
