Delta State Bans Entry of Fulani Herdsmen over Robbery Incidents

DELTA State Government says it has banned new entry of cattle rearers into the state as part of measures to monitor security situations in the state in order to ensure that the state was safe for Deltans and investors.
Secretary to Delta State Government, SSG, Mr. Ovuozourie Macaulay, weekend, when he ran into a robbery scene in broad daylight on Ogwashi-Uku/Kwale Road, which is one of the black spots, where bandits attack motorists and passengers at random, however, gave assurance that the state government would ensure that criminals were flushed out of the state.

The SSG, who ordered his security team into the bush in search of the criminals, also took part in the rescue operation of the robbery victims, which led to the rescue of one Juliana, who was shot on the upper arm by the robbers. Another victim, Mrs. Olise Evelyn, said that she lost N200,000 to the robbers, who according to her, were suspected to be Fulani herdsmen, adding that robbery of vehicles, especially traders, was a common occurrence in that axis.
State Commissioner for Information, Mr. Chike Ogeah, had last week, while commenting on the killings in Ogume purportedly carried out by Fulani herdsmen, said that the state government was finding a lasting solution to clashes between herdsmen and villagers, who complained of the destruction of their farmlands and subsequent harassment by the herdsmen.
