15 local governments in Orumba-South Local Government in Anambra State have been under the mercies of the Fulani Herdsmen.

Members of the community have alleged that herdsmen were raping their wives and children.

This was made known by the spokesperson of the ommunities, Mr Chukwudi Ugochukwu, stated this at Orumba-South Local Government Council secretariat in Umunze during a stakeholders’ meeting of the people of the area.

He added that the herdsmen allowed their cows to graze on farms, thereby destroying people’s livelihoods.

Ugochukwu said some women and girls had been raped on their way to their farms.

He said no fewer than 20 of such cases had being recorded, adding that he would not go beyond for fear of stigmatising the victims.

He said, “We live along the boundary with Imo State by Arondizuogu. All the farmlands there have been devastated by the herdsmen. Some of our women have been raped on the farmlands but they refused to talk so that they will not be stigmatised. The entire Umunze is under threat.”
