Blood Bath: Three Killed, Dozen Injured As Fulani Herdsmen Attack Edo community

THE people of Sobe community in Owan West local government area of Edo State have suffered another attack today following the renewed hostility of fulani herdsmen in the area.

Just few hours ago a pastor and two of his workers were killed in cold blood while the trio were working in their farm land around Eti Oseh road.


Effort of the Edo State security network to rescue the victims before they breath their last was proved abortive as the herdsmen numbering 40 open fire on the rescue team and most of them escaped with various degree of bullet injuries.

We call on Edo State governor led by Governor Godwin Obaseki and Edo State commissioner of police and her sister agencies to beep up security in Sobe community.

This is the 5th time Sobe will be suffering deadly attacks from fulani herdsmen and it has almost be left unabated.

Most people living in the suburbs of the community has since left their homes while most farmers have relocated from the community.
