Fulani cattle herdsmen butcher two brothers in Imo state(photos)

The plight of residents of Umuekwunne Irete in Imo State got worse yesterday Thursday
August 8th 2013 as fulani cattle herdsmen opened fire on the community, injuring several
young men. Worse off is Chibuzor Hezekiah Okorie (pictured above) who was shot in the
stomach and also cut in
the chest and leg with a machete. His brother was also attacked.
The Fulani cattle herdsmen encroach into the farms, using the crop to feed their cattle. This
has always been the case in most communities in Imo State. Almost on a daily basis cattle
storm farm lands and destroys crops cultivated by the people. And when some youths in the
community confronted the cattle herdsmen around 3pm yesterday, they almost didn't live to
tell their story.
The Fulanis carry AK47 guns and machetes and this was what they sued on the men
yesterday.
The communities said they have reported the happening to the government on several
occasions, but nothing has been done so far.
