Fulani herdsman allegedly stabs boy to death in Enugu

A Fulani herdsman allegedly stabbed an Igbo boy to death at Obinagu/ Onuogba Nike Community estate by Ogbuagu Crescent Emene, a suburb of Enugu metropolis.

According to PUNCH, an eyewitness said trouble started when the Fulani herdsman accused the victim, whose name was given simply as Temple of trespassing where his cows were grazing.

The eyewitness said the herdsman drew his dagger and stabbed the victim to death after he (the victim) questioned him whether the land he was grazing his cows belonged to him.

“When he (Fulani herdsman) noticed that his victim had died he took to his heels,” said the eyewitness.

The eyewitness, however, noted that some members of the local vigilante who were contacted by residents apprehended the assailant and handed him over to the police.

PUNCH reported that when the State Police Public Relations Officer, Daniel Ndukwe, was contacted on telephone, he said, “Please my brother I am busy, can you send me a text message on the incident.”
