Fulani Herdsmen Massacre - Graphic Photos (Warning-Highly Disturbing)

It was all tears at Ukpabi, Nimbo, in Uzo-Uwani local government area of Enugu state, following the visit of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi on Tuesday, April 26. Governor Ugwuanyi reportedly could not hold back his tears as he tried console the bereaved people.

He was in the company of Enugu State commissioner of police, Mr Nwodibo Ekechukwu, the GOC 82 Division, Nigerian Army, Major General Ibrahim Attahiru, as well as the Enugu State commandant, Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC).


The Governor, thereafter, declared a two-day fasting and prayer in the state, asking residents to commit the situation into God’s hand. The visit coincided with the recovery of one more dead resident, who was slaughtered by the herdsmen.


There were many survivors, with varying degrees of injuries. They are said to be currently receiving treatment in different hospitals in Nsukka. The rampage at the agrarian community in Enugu state left about forty-eight members of the community killed. Over 60 houses and shops were set ablaze by the invading herdsmen.

About 56 injured residents are said to be receiving treatment at hospitals in Nsukka. Sources reveal that the attack came two days after a security report hinted of an impending attack by Fulani herdsmen in the area. Below are more photos from the Governors visit.
