The young man from Okposi Ohaozara LGA, Ebonyi state acknowledged to had severally posted on his social tools regarding pending clash, destruction of farm cops by the marauding armed herders and the leaders in the community remain reluctant over it.
Aja, alerted that he is being silenced by the King, Eze Agwu adding that on Friday he was told to be arrested for spreading the information on net.
Consequently, he regretted that “they (leaders) will be having a meeting with Herdsmen after they damaged our crops and is very difficult to our leaders to tell them that we (the farmers) don’t need them”
He, however, prayed for God’s intervention and to fish out everyone supporting the herdsmen to destroy their farmland.
Aja noted that farmers are no longer free to enter their farms like before due to fear of herdsmen. Scannews24 reports. Read post
