Barr. Chijioke Edeoga, Enugu State gubernatorial candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 general election, has condemned the recent assault on the Ugwujoro community in Nimbo by suspected herdsmen.

Following the tragic incident that resulted in loss of lives and severe injuries, Edeoga emphasized that the ongoing violence by the assailants must be met with immediate and decisive action from both state and federal authorities.


Stressing the inviolable importance of safeguarding farmers and all citizens, he called for swift measures to ensure the security of communities and the prompt apprehension of those responsible for the heinous acts.

“I strongly condemn the recent horrific attack on Ugwujoro in Nimbo Community of Uzo Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State by suspected killer herdsmen.
These appalling acts have resulted in the tragic loss of lives and inflicted deep anguish upon innocent residents. Our hearts go out to the families and loved ones of the victims during this time of profound sorrow.”

“The ongoing violence and bloodshed perpetrated by assailants believed to be killer herdsmen are intolerable and demand immediate and resolute action from both the state and federal governments. I urge the authorities to prioritize the security of our communities and swiftly bring the perpetrators of these atrocities to justice.”

“Ndi-Enugu, I urge heightened vigilance and cooperation with law enforcement agencies. Please remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities or movements to the appropriate authorities promptly. Your active engagement is crucial in ensuring the safety and well-being of our communities.”

“Furthermore, I appeal to the President to do more to secure farmlands and farmers not only in the North, but also in the East, particularly in Enugu State in alignment with his food security agenda. It is essential to safeguard our agricultural lands and ensure the safety of farmers, who play a critical role in our nation’s food production and economic stability. By enhancing security measures in these regions.”

“I also express gratitude to the President for the efforts made so far in combating security challenges in Enugu State. However, more needs to be done, especially in areas like Eha-Amufu in Isi Uzo LG and Uzo Uwani LGA, where communities continue to face threats and occupation by killer herdsmen. I appeal for increased interventions to ensure the complete restoration of peace and security in these affected areas.

“The safety and security of every citizen, particularly our farmers, are paramount and non-negotiable. Let us stand united against violence and work together to foster peace and harmony in our beloved Enugu State” he concluded.
