Fulani herdsmen have reportedly launched a fresh attack in Umuchigbo, another community in Enugu East Council Area of the State.
According to DAILY POST, the attack took place while the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Solomon Arase is at Nimbo community in Uzo-Uwani council area where a similar attack occurred two days ago and left scores dead.
￼A source was quoted as saying:
“Yes, there is trouble between the Fulani herdsmen and indigenes of Umuchigbo.
“The trouble started this afternoon. The causality figure is not yet known.
“But school children have been asked to go home. It is not yet known if security men have arrived.”
However, another source said that it was just a scare, which later spread fast and schools started closing.
“The Fulani people had some disagreement with somebody in that community few weeks ago; so, rumour just came today that they have come to attack the residents.
“Immediately, people started running; there was actually no attack; it was a scare.
Meanwhile, the police is yet to react to the development.
