Suspected Fulani Herdsmen on Sunday night blocked a road in Enugwu Ukwu, Njikoka Local Government Area (LGA), Anambra State, kidnapped unidentified travelers and beat up a Reverend Sister.
In a viral video sighted by AbaCityBlog, the suspected herdsmen who were six in numbers, according to the victim, blocked the road with logs of wood, beats the reverend sister to stupor, made away with her valuables and kidnapped other travelers.
In the video, one can see the Reverend sister’s face swollen following the beating she received from the herdsmen. Locals who made the video called on the security agencies to act and rescue the victims, stressing that they have gone to the office of the local security outfit and could not find anyone.
Narrating the incident, the Reverend, said; “they were six in numbers, they took others and hit me with their gun, they hit me in my stomach and my face”. When the locals asked her who they are, she alleged they were Fulani Herdsmen.
Two vehicles were abandoned at the scene of the crime, a Toyota Corolla with registration number: Lagos FST-221HJ, whose occupants were presumably abducted by the gunmen and a mini-bus which was conveying the Reverend sister, with registration number: Anambra NKK-575YT
