Enugu Govt condemns attack on farmers in Eha Amufu
The Enugu State Government has condemned the recent attack on farmers in their farm settlements at Aguamaede and Mgbuji communities in Eha Amufu, Isi-Uzo Local Government Area by suspected herders, which led to killings and destruction of properties.
The government, in a statement by Secretary to the State Government, Simon Uchenna Ortuanya, directed the heads of all security agencies in the state to rise to the challenge and deploy more personnel to the affected communities to provide adequate security for lives and property.
Ortuanya further said that, in its determination to bring an end to the lingering crisis between farmers and herders in Eha Amufu, the government will meet with their leaders to decisively resolve the contentious issues that might have led to the recent attack.
The government also commiserated with families of the deceased and sympathised with the victims who sustained injuries, as well as those who were displaced.
