Many feared dead, others injured as herdsmen attack Enugu community


Nimbo community in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State has again come under attack by suspected Fulani herdsmen.


The attack, which occurred late Sunday evening, claimed some lives, with many others critically injured.


Sources disclosed that the herders attacked mourners at Ugwuijoro Nimbo community, leaving behind tears and sorrow.


Some of those killed were identified as Okeh Simon Ugwu Oruku, Okeh Chukwuebuka, Julius Ogbonna Odiegwu and Gabriel Ugwor Ezea.


A gruesome video sighted by newsmen on Monday morning showed a deserted community.


The voice in the video cried out that the invaders took the villagers by surprise and shot sporadically at the mourners.


Tables and chairs could be seen scattered in the compound where the mourners had gathered, with lifeless villagers also seen in the pool of their blood.


Recall that Nimbo was also attacked in 2016, leading to the death of scores.


The incident attracted a nationwide outrage then.
