Villagers eject Fulani herdsmen from Ughelli community
This is following reports of several clashes between the herdsmen and farmers in the community.
Punch reports that the leaders of the community and the herdsmen agreed to a two-week peace pact.
After the 14 day period, any cattle rearer who wants to graze in the community will be required to negotiate with the Olomu Traditional Council.
An excerpt of the peace agreement reads: “Fulani Herdsmen must vacate the Kingdom for failing to properly negotiate with the Olomu Traditional Council before embarking on their grazing businesses in our domain. The Fulani Herdsmen should vacate Olomu Kingdom within two weeks from 25/06/2016-09/07/2016.”
