Suspected Fulani herders in Isuikwuato Local Government Area of Abia State who reportedly came under intense heat of eviction moves on herdsmen allegedly involved in crime across the country, are seeking relief from the police.

Reports indicated that some herdsmen who suffered loss of property and injury in a recent onslaught by unidentified gunmen in the state have lodged complaints with the police in anticipation of protection and possible recovery of lost properties, as they count their losses.

Among them is Yusuf Ibrahim, a herdsman who had reported to the police at Isuikwauto, that unknown gunmen invaded their camp at Ogboko Ozuitem  on Sunday, January 31, shot and injured an herder simply identified as Ibrahim, rustled an unspecified number of cattle and killed 16 cows. An unspecified number of cattle were also allegedly injured by the invaders.

Based on the report, the police said teams of policemen were dispatched to the scene where the injured victim was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Umuahia, for treatment.

In a situation report on the incident, the Abia State police command said a team of policemen mobilized to the crime scene recovered the dead cows and 15 expended cartridges.

It further stated that efforts are on to arrest the perpetrators of the act just as investigation into the case was ongoing at the Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) of the state police command.

A senior police officer who confirmed the incident said it was a case of attempted murder, unlawful killing and cruelty to animals.
