An unidentified young man has reportedly been killed by suspected herdsmen in Okpulugwu Agu-Amede community in Eha-Amufu, Isi-Uzo Local Government Area of Enugu State.

According to reports, the man was killed on Friday when he rushed down to his farm to rescue his sister who he learnt was being attacked and raped by Fulani herdsmen around the farm.

Speaking on the incident, one of the community leaders identified as Justus Nwonye was quoted as saying that:
“Unfortunately, the herdsmen who were about four overpowered the deceased, stabbed him several times before slitting his throat.”

Eha-Amufu communities share boundaries with Benue State and have had several herdsmen attacks since August 2021 resulting in several killings and the sacking of eight farm settlements.
