Nimbo community demands N17b compensation over Fulani herdsmen attack

Nimbo community demands N17b compensation over Fulani herdsmen attack
Following the much-highlighted killing of dozens of people and burning of properties at Nimbo in Enugu State on April 25, the leadership of the community has claimed the attack is only one out of many attacks the community has experienced over the past decades.

Igwe of Nimbo, HRM John Akor told a Judicial Commission of Inquiry earlier this week:

“Our community demands a compensation of N17 billion for human loses, unlawful destruction of property and criminal deprivation of use of our farms for over two decades.

“The conclusive evidence of deaths recorded during the incursion stands at 11. The economy of our community has been ruined.
“Part of our prayers is for a combined team of police, DSS and the military to investigate why the invasion was not contained in spite of prior information to the effect.

“We equally request the Federal Government to establish security presence in Nimbo being a border community.”
