Labour Party Governorship candidate in the 2023 general elections in Enugu state, Barr. Chijioke Edeoga has condemned in strong terms the recent attacks on the people of Ikem in Isiuzo council area and the people of Adani in Uzo Uwani local government area of the state by suspected herdsmen.

Edeoga said the deplorable acts of violence cannot be tolerated.


“The senseless loss of lives and the infliction of harm upon innocent civilians are affronts to humanity and grave violations of peace and security.”

Barr. Edeoga in a press statement made available to Daily Gazette on Wednesday, called on both the Enugu State and Federal governments “to take immediate and decisive action to protect the people from such atrocities.”

“It is the responsibility of the government to ensure the safety and security of its citizens, and any failure to do so is a betrayal of trust and an exhibition of incompetence.

“Furthermore, I urge the authorities to swiftly investigate this heinous act and bring the perpetrators to justice. Those responsible for instigating fear and perpetrating violence must be held accountable for their actions. Justice must be served to restore faith in the rule of law and to prevent further bloodshed.”

“It is deeply concerning that farmlands in Eha-Amufu are still occupied by bandits, making it difficult for the people who survive mainly on farm produce to thrive. This situation exacerbates the suffering of the affected communities and underscores the urgency of addressing the root causes of insecurity.”

“Moreover, the multiple attacks by herdsmen serve as stark reminders that more needs to be done by the relevant federal authorities to ensure the safety of citizens across the country. The recurrent nature of these attacks highlights the inadequacies in our security infrastructure and demands urgent and comprehensive intervention.”

“To those who have been injured in this senseless attack, I offer my heartfelt condolences and solidarity. No words can fully express the pain and suffering that you are enduring, but know that you are not alone. I stand with you in your time of need and I pray for your swift recovery.”

“To the families and loved ones of those who have tragically lost their lives in this horrific incident, I extend my deepest sympathies and condolences. The loss of a loved one is a profound and devastating experience, and I mourn with you during this difficult time. May you find strength and solace in the memories of your loved ones, and may they rest in peace.”

“I call on all Nigerians to condemn violence in all its forms and to demand justice for the victims of these senseless attacks ravaging our dear nation. Together, we must stand united against hatred and division and work towards building a society where peace and harmony prevail.” he concluded.
