As condemnations greet the mindless and senseless killings by the Fulani herdsmen in the country, the Rivers State chapter of Abia State University, ABSU, Alumni Association, has also called on the group to stop the inhuman act.
In its position paper produced after her general monthly meeting on Sunday, the association’ s President, Stanley Nwangborogwu and made available to newsmen, the Association condemned in strongest terms, what it described as senseless massacre of Innocent citizens, by the Fulani herdsmen.
According to him, the trend, if not checked could cause anarchy, and consequently, ethnic war, noting that the Association as part of its social responsibility, frowned at the incessant Fulani herdsmen invasion of communities, towns and states, especially in the Eastern part of the country.
“The continued invasion of the communities, towns and states in the eastern part of the country is becoming worrisome. A situation in which people are massacred in their homes without any reason calls for greater concern, and collective effort to stem the tide‎ of such a barbaric act capable of causing war if unchecked”, he declared.
The President, who was earlier jolted by the recent beheading of three‎ Abia students by cultists, maintained that the issue of safety of lives and property both in the schools and society at large should be made the utmost priority, enjoined all hands to be on deck toward ensuring the stoppage of the dastardly act and wanton destruction of lives and property in the country.
He however, called on the security agencies in the country to brace up the challenges, and nip in the bud the canker worm, which he noted, was capable of destroying the already fragile peace in the country.
It will be recalled that the Fulani herdsmen‎ invaded Agatu, Benue state, where more than 500 persons, including women and children were massacred, the recent attack being the Nimbo-Uzo, in Enugu state, where more than 30 persons were reportedly slaughtered.
