An attack was launched by suspected herdsmen in Mgbuji-Ehamufu in Isi-Uzo local government of Enugu State during the weekend, which led to the death of 9.
Vanguard reported that trouble reportedly started when the herders were stopped from cutting down an economic tree to Fred their cattle. It was gathered that this led to heated argument between the community members and the herders.
After the community members succeeded in pursuing the Fulani herders and their cattle from further destruction of the economic tree, they reportedly re-grouped in a calculated revenge mission and attacked the community killing no less than four persons. They later escaped with their animals after commiting the crime.
