Two teenagers, a JSS3 student identified as Thadeus Utazi, 17, and one Okeh Michael, 19, who is in SSS2, recently met untimely death when Fulani herdsmen were alleged to have recently unleashed terror at their Nimbo, community in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State.
Reports have it that the two had been helping their parents in a farm work when the sad incident occurred. According to residents of the community, before now, the Fulani were notorious for robbing, harassing and raping women at farmlands and on Nsukka–Adani Expressway after which they retire to the forest posing as cattle-rearers. They operate, armed with sophisticated weapons, sharpened machetes and arrows.
On the fateful day, Fulani herdsmen carried out an unprovoked attack on the teenagers because they had asked them to stop their cattle from destroying their farmlands. They residents also alleged that the Fulani men shot and killed the two students.
It was also gathered that after the incident, the community through the town union, petitioned Enugu State Governor, Mr. Sullivan Chime; Chairman Uzo-Uwani Local Government, Mr. Onwubuya Cornel and copied the State Security Services (SSS) over the attack and killings but nothing concrete has come out of it.

How could these bastards have th guts to do such an atrocity and still be allow to rear their cattle in ur community? This can never happen in any villages in my state Abia. Aboki fulani, can never go free if such a thing is attempted. U pple should mobilise th youth and flush them out. U ar wasting ur time in writing petition that would never produce results through this corrupt system of government who ar only interested in looting wealth.

I promis this Abokis hell b4 the end of this year. Except they bring out those criminals that did this evil
Eastern and southern people never see anything.All fulanis,namas,will continue slaughtering you in your communities.Other tribes can never try all these trashes in the north. This kind of incident happened in Ondo state in 1996. i don’t see any reason of harbouring these bad people in our community. we can see what is occurring in plateau state caused by fulanis. i still believe we never see the real drama,this is just rehearsal….thanks
