There was commotion on Tuesday in Agbala in Owerri North Local Government Area of Imo State when some Fulani herdsmen killed themselves with knives over missing Cows.
A source who spoke to Punch Metro said thus:
“This issue would have escalated if not that another Fulani herdsman witnessed it.
“What happened was that a Fulani herdsman had gone into the bush where his kinsman and his cows were staying and stabbed him. While the man was sleeping, he stabbed him mercilessly. He left with his victim’s cows after he thought that he was dead.
“To his disadvantage, another Fulani herdsman who was in the bush quickly alerted other Fulani herdsmen (nearby). They monitored him until the herdsmen arrived. On their arrival, they first recovered the stolen cows before stabbing him countlessly.”
“It was villagers who alerted the police. The man was rescued and the two rushed to the emergency unit of FMC, Owerri.”
The Police spokesperson in the state, Orlando Ikeokwu confirmed the report.
