Some women in Ninte village, Jema’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State, have protested half-naked over the frequent attacks by Fulani herdsmen in their community.
The Ninte women, alongside others from neighbouring villages took their complaints to the palace of the Chief of Godogodo.
According to the Daily Post, their concerns were over the killing, rape and burning of their houses by the nomadic people.
Mrs. Deborah Reuben, a spokesperson for the group accused the Kaduna State government of neglecting them.
She stated that the violent dealings with the herdsmen began in May 2016, and it has affected their freedom to farm.
Reuben said, “The situation is unhealthy as it is no longer safe.
“The government we voted into power has left us at the mercy of armed herdsmen, farms cannot be cultivated in the face of high level of impunity,”
Reacting to the complaints of the women, the chief tried to calm them down, making assurances that the situation would be brought under control as soon as possible.
