In A Bid To Stop Herdsmen, Delta Community Bans Consumption Of Beef
Herdsmen are by the day becoming the new terrorists everyone is scared of.
In a bid to discourage the business of cattle rearing and stifle the activities of armed Fulani herdsmen in their area, the people of Uwheru kingdom in Ughelli North local government area of Delta State, have banned the sales and consumption of beef in all communities in the kingdom.
The ban is coming just as the Nigeria army, weekend, denied allegations that its personnel threatened to destroy communities in the kingdom if corpses of those reportedly killed by armed Fulani herdsmen are not exhumed.
Also, the member representing Ughelli North, Ughelli South and Udu constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon Francis Waive, has asked the Federal Government to investigate the incident including reported attacks by some military personnel on locals of the affected communities.
