There are rising fears in the community that casualties may rise in coming days due to the level of injuries sustained by some of the villagers who were caught in the attacks.

An eyewitness, Chinaza Akan, who was at the scene of the incident said one of the casualties was a pregnant woman whose stomach was said to have been ripped open and the foetus removed, while others were people who went for a marriage event.

Some villagers told Nairagists that the armed herdsmen stormed the community on Sunday afternoon, through the border with Benue community and attacked several farm settlers and other unlucky people caught in the farm.

Bishop of Anglican Diocese of Eha-Amufu, Rt. Rev Daniel Nkemjika Olinya, who confirmed the development to Nairagists, painted a horrible and gory picture of the inhumane actions of the herdsmen.

He registered his concerns that herdsmen attacks in farm settlements in the affected Mgbuji community and its neighbors have been on the rise and the government has not done enough to end the attacks.

Bishop Olinya further confirmed that the police came on Monday, 24 hours after the attacks, with the intention of taking away the corpses, but the community members resisted them because they have not released other corpses in their custody for burial.

The community members alleged that the police asked them to sign an undertaking before they could release the corpses to the family members for burial.

But the undertaking, as gathered, was not favorable to the community, hence, they withheld their signature.

He said that part of the undertaking was that they would allocate land to the Fulani people, accept and live together with them whenever they return to the community, and that was unacceptable to the community members. So, the corpses are still with the police.

The sad event happened yesterday, the young girl was a teacher in one of the schools in the community, the said Ohen has been pestering her for a relationship despite married to 4 wives, yesterday the Ohen lured her to a location yesterday where she informed the Ohen that she is planning her introduction to get married, enraged by the information, the said Ohen went into a rage and beat the young girl mercilessly until she became unresponsive, then he dragged her into his tinted Lexus 350 and drove her to central hospital, on arrival at central hospital he parked his car with the young girl inside and fled the scene without trying to get the hospital emergency teams to administer treatment or first aid to her.

Seeing that the young girl did not return home after some hours the family started a frantic search for her and one of the boys to the Ohen informed the family of her whereabouts, they rushed to the hospital parking lot and searched for the car on finding the car and the young girl sucked in the back seat the mother tried to force the car door open in the hope that the girl might still be alive but the hospital security stopped her and requested they go get the police, the distrust mother then rushed to Aideyan police station and after 2 hours the police reluctantly accompanied them there, instead of the police to quickly force the car open they insisted in towing the car to their police station saying that they do not have the power to force open the car.

Again the distrust mother watching life sneaking out of her daughter went to look for a towing van and after about 5 hours the car was eventually towed to the police station where the police then broke the glass of the car and discovered that the young girl had given up the ghost.

The family of the young girl are in serious pains now and the said Ohen is bragging that nothing can happen to him. The mother of the deceased girl called me early this morning and tearfully narrated her ordeal to me.
