Protest Rocks Bayelsa as Women, Youths Issue 14 Days Quit Notice To Herdsmen

Women and youths, yesterday, protested in Edo and Bayalsa states against killer herdsmen, who they accused of raping their girls and women and destroying crops in their farms.

Meanwhile, following an  alleged  killing of three persons,  including two vigilante members by suspected herders on Monday in Ugo N’iyekorhionmwon, Orhionmwon Local Government Area of Edo State, youths of the state have issued a 14-day ultimatum to the ‘killer herdsmen’ occupying farmlands and forest in the state to quit.

Vanguard reports that, this came as Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State said the state pays compensation of N100,000 for any cow killed and farmland destroyed in conflicts between farmers and herders in the state, adding that infiltrators use perceived Federal Government’s protection of herders to commit crime and escape justice.
