Mixed feelings in Alor and Oraukwu communities in Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra state as about 15 Fulani herdsmen armed with AK47 rifles, machetes and daggers stormed Agbo village yesterday.
According to Daily Sun, the residents of Agbo, Okebunoye and Umunambu villages in Alor community; and its neighbouring Ohokwu village, have deserted their homes for fear of being attacked at night by the armed herdsmen who reportedly stormed Alor by 4:30pm yesterday.
This is coming barely 12 days after about 50 poisonous bows and arrows were intercepted from two suspected Fulani herdsmen at Ubana farmland in Dim-Ubana village.
When Daily Sun visited the area, several residential buildings were locked while the police, and other security agencies were patrolling to ensure tight security. Some residents said they have sought refuge in neighbouring communities.
