A Member Representing Ethiope East State Constituency in
Delta State House of Assembly, Honourable Evance Ochuko Ivwurie, confirmed the occurrence
of the sad incident in a statement released earlier today.

Read the statement below:

“Another of my
Constituent, Mr. Sunday Idama, a Senior Staff of the Delta State University,
Abraka- Library Department, 50 years with 14 children was brutally murdered by
the ravaging Fulani Herdsmen on Friday in his Cassava farmland in Ovre Abraka.

I have reported to
the whole world that I was briefed by my constituents residing across Ethiope
East Mainland; towns/villages and Ethiope East Hinterlands;
Ovre-Eku/Abraka/Igun of the sighting by some of them of an unspecified
Helicopter said to be dropping supplies in the same Ovre-Eku/Abraka axis.

Since after my
receipt of that brief, five of my Constituents namely Mr. Philip Akpine,
Mr.Francis Okotie, Mr. Sunday Couple, Mr. Eyabigun Akpovena and Mr. Sunday
Idama have all been slaughtered by this mercenaries; Fulani Herdsmen in their
farmlands in Ovre-Abraka which is a safe haven, dwelling and business place for
thousands of Fulani Herdsmen and their cattle.

My people are
helplessly susceptible, defenceless and vulnerable to this menace. The Herdsmen
escapade and atrocities against my exposed constituents includes killing and
Kidnapping them, maiming, raping and attacking them.

It is estimated that
we have over 2,000 Fulani Herdsmen and over 10,000 cattle in the various parts
of the vast deserts- which many people have christened Ethiope East Sambisa
Forest.

I wish to appeal to
the security agencies to visit the “Ethiope East Sambisa Forest” and
properly investigate the activities of the criminal elements of the herdsmen
and bring them to justice.

Thank you.

Ivwurie
