The Fulani herdsmen invaded Ukpabi Nimbo in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State and killed over 20 persons on Monday. 

It was gathered that these terrorists invaded their community when they were at sleep in early hours of Monday and slaughtered the villagers.

Many of the villagers escaped to neighboring communities and some in nearby villages are also afraid of possible attack from the Fulani herdsmen. 

The Police Public Relations Officer, Enugu State Police command, Mr Ebere Amaraizu said that the Commissioner of Police, Mr Nwodibo Ekechukwu led other officers to the area to rescue the casualties and the corpses have been deposited in nearby mogue.

“We moved in to ensure that the situation did not degenerate beyond control and right now everything is under control."

“The Commissioner of Police is there with other officers and men and the area is being secured.

“We can’t give the total number of casualties yet, it is when the operation is concluded that we will collate figures and give a definite number,” Amaraizu said
