1 killed as Fulani, natives clash in Enugu

Reports from the area, on Wednesday, also said two
cows belonging to the Fulanis were killed during the
feud, as the youth alleged that the Fulani herdsmen
also raped some women in the area.
The source added that disagreement between the
two parties led to a fight that subsequently claimed
the lives of the Fulani herdsman and two cows.
It was gathered that some natives sustained
injuries, a development that heightened tension in
the community before a combined team of soldiers
and policemen were drafted to the place.
Confirming the incident, the state Police Public
Relations Officer (PPRO), Mr Ebere Amaraizu, said
the swift deployment of security operatives in the
area prevented the escalation of the dispute, adding
that both parties were summoned by the state
Commissioner of Police, where a successful
dialogue was held.
Amaraizu said the security operatives had been
stationed in the community to maintain peace and
order, so that both parties could go about their
normal businesses without molestation.
