Save Our Lives And Properties From Bandits

Press Release
C/o Comrade Godwin Erhahon
2nd Floor, Edo House, 6 Akpakpava Street, Benin City.
(08033905725, 08073707846)
February 7, 2022.
His Excellency,
The Executive Governor of Edo State
 Government House,
Benin City.
Your Excellency,
 We are neighbouring communities of Ologbo-nugu, Umoghun-nokhua, Orogho, Owuo, Urhehue, Evboesi and Evbonogbon, situate  at the boarder of  Edo and  Delta States by River Ethiope, off Benin-Abraka Road, in Orhionmwon Local Government Area.  Our  farmlands from centuries ago spreads from right of  Benin-Abraka road to  Ugo- Oben – Jesse road, all under Ugo and Iguelaba Police Divisions.
 For about four years now, some fierce looking heardsmen  accompanied by AK47- wielding tenagers have invaded our farmlands  with hundreds of cattles.
They destroyed our crops and feed their cattle with  our produce comprising yams, plantains, cassava and more. See Pix 1(a & b)
 We took the pains to identify the owner of the cattle whom we  found to be a Fulani merchant  based in Warri. His mobile contact is              0905 0144757
In our latest contact with him, he disowned the cattle and  herders now in our farms insisting that they are cattle rustlers with stolen cattle from Kogi State. He said he has since taken away  his herders and cattle from our neighborhood, adding that those now terrorising us are common criminals.
He said he has since complained at Ugo Police Division that the “herdsmen” currently terrorising us are common criminals. He advised us to cry to government to comb the bush with joint military team and flush out the bandits. Your Excellency may wish to contact him.
 We are now forced to cry to our no-nonsense Governor as the bandits have started killing our people, raping our wives and daughters.
 Late January, 2022, they killed a  father and his 3 children at Evbonogbon (see Pix 2). Their bodies are still in the mortuary.
On February 2, 2022, they abducted three women from  Ologbo-nugu, tortured and raped them serially.
They released them with a warning to their husbands that they will be coming to wipe out the various communities soon.
 Since then, we have sighted them  at different points surveilling round our communities.
On Thursday, February 3, they abducted seven other women  from Evbonogbon and treated them exactly as they treated the  three from Ologbo as narrated above. Now we are afraid to enter our old farms  to harvest or to start cultivating new farms. There are several other victims as in Pic. 4.
However, on Friday, January 4th, the gallant vigilante team of Ologbo-nugu stormed  the occupied farmland and  arrested one of the bandits that raped their women . The arrested bandit has been handed over to the State Police Command and he has confessed to the crime but refused to name members of his gang or show us where they hid their weapons which he initially volunteered to do. See his attached picture as Pic. 3 .
 Hence we are crying to Your Excellency to order your Joint Military Task Force to lead our Vigilante groups to Comb the area and flush out the criminals from our land before they kill more of our law-abiding citizens.
Yours faithful citizens in distress.
