Suspected Killer Fulani Herdsmen Invade Former President Goodluck Jonathan’s Hometown, Otuoke, Attack Farmer And His Son With Machetes

Emerging report indicates that some suspected Fulani herdsmen have invaded Otuoke, the hometown of former President Goodluck Jonathan, attacking a Farmer and his son with machetes, leaving both in critical condition.

It was learnt that the herdsmen attacked the family, after which they were rushed to the Federal Medical Centre, in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital.

The Ijaw Youth Council, IYC, which got wind of the herdsmen’s attacks, reportedly rushed the duo for medical treatment.

The IYC Central Zone Chairman, Clever Inodu, said that the young boy and his father from Otuoke community, were attacked and “brutally butchered by herdsmen, along the new Otuoke Road”.

A source told disclosed that the herdsmen had been causing trouble in several Ijaw Communities, and the IYC is planning a meeting between its Executives and the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, to seek for solution.

The IYC said: “The nonchalant attitude of FMC, in attending to the patients we took there, is another side of the discussion. The IYC made a lot of financial and physical interventions, to ensure that the boy and his father are both responding to treatment.

“There have been complaints over the last one month, about the activities of the herdsmen in the communities. We have been monitoring their activities. There will be a meeting of Stakeholders of the IYC and the MACBAN, in Bayelsa State, by next week.

“We have tried to calm down the youths to prevent a reprisal, and to tell them that we are on top of the situation.”
