August 9, 2013 – Fulani Herdsmen Attacked Imo State Villagers; Several Injured
Some wicked Fulani cattle herdsmen have unleashed terror once again in a rural community in Imo State, Nigeria.
On Thursday August 8, 2013, we learnt some Fulanis opened fire on villagers in Umuekwunne Irete community.
The attack left several people badly injured. Worst hit were two brothers from the same family.
One of them identified as Chibuzor Hezekiah Okorie was shot in the stomach with an Ak47 riffle. They also macheted his leg and chest.
The other brother was also severely injured while trying to escape the attack.
According to Irete residents, this is not the first time the Fulanis will attack their village.
The community members said they have reported the case to the police on several occasions but they have done nothing to help them out.
How are these Fulani herdsmen different from Boko Haram?
