Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, Tuesday, April 26, 2016, wept uncontrollably on seeing the quantum of his people murdered and the property destroyed by the dreaded Fulani Herdsmen.
The governor who visited Ukpabi, Nimbo, in Uzo-Uwani local government area of the state could not control himself and was pictured using his hand to cover his face in tears.
He was in the company of Enugu State’s 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 Defence Corps, NSCDC.
The governor, thereafter, declared two days fasting and prayer in the State, asking residents to commit the situation into God’s hand.
The visit, according to Daily Post, coincided with the recovery of one more dead residents, who were slaughtered by the herdsmen.
This is as many survivors, with varying degrees of injuries on the head, neck, and other parts of the body are currently receiving treatment in different hospitals in Nsukka.
Some of the victims are being moved to the Enugu State University Teaching Hospital, Parklane, Enugu.
