Suspected herdsmen slaughter elderly woman two months after they killed her daughter and son-in-law in Enugu

Share This


An elderly woman identified as Mrs Anna was among eight people killed by suspected Fulani herdsmen at Okpokwu Mgbuji community in Eha-Amufu, Isi-Uzo Local Government Area of Enugu State, on Sunday, August 1. 

The deceased was said to have recently buried her daughter, Chinyere Ede and son-in-law, Japhet Ede, who were killed in earlier attack carried out by herdsmen in the community. 

It was gathered that the couple were killed alongside two others on May 27, 2021, at Okpokwu Mgbuji. They were laid to rest on July 22.




Trouble reportedly started when the herders were stopped from cutting down an economic tree to feed their cattle. The interruption led to heated argument between the community members and the herders.

It was further learnt that the community members succeeded in pursuing the Fulani herders and their cattle from further destruction of the economic tree.

However, the herders later re-grouped in a calculated revenge mission, and attacked  the community, killing several people.
