Following the appearance of a video clip on social media that some herdsmen were forced out of some part of Enugu State by the villagers, the Enugu State command of the Nigeria police has dismissed the claim stating that such never occurred.

In a press release signed by the police Public Relations Officer, PRO, in the state SP Ebere Amaraizu, the force stated that “such situation never existed and that it was only the movement of cattle and herders from Cross River state through uburu in ohaozara local government area of Ebonyi state and a neighboring town for grazing.”

The police advised the members of the public to go about their lawful businesses as such report is the “handiwork of mischief makers who wants to brew rancor, cause panic and fear and also sow seed of acrimony as well as instigating violence.”

The complete statement reads; 

The Enugu state command of the Nigeria police force wishes to inform members of the public that it’s attention has been drawn to information in existence that large herd of cows and some herders were escorted peacefully out of nenwe Aninri community of Enugu state on 29/6/19 by youth believed to be from Agbada nenwe and further wish to update members of the public who may have been misinformed with the state of things.

That the herders and their cattle were on transit and has got nothing to do with escorting out of herders and cattle out of the said community.

That the said piece of information in circulation is viewed to be the handiwork of mischief makers who wants to brew rancor, cause panic and fear and also sow seed of acrimony as well as instigating violence.

The command has already commenced action with a view to identifying and fishing out those in the habit of mischievous information so that they can be brought to book.
