Suspected herdsmen have reportedly killed three people in some area in Edo State.
The attacks were said to have been carried out on Tuesday and Wednesday at Idogbo community, Ikpoba/ Okha Local Government Area and Sapele Road bypass, Benin City.
According to an indigene of the area, Prince Ogiegor Austine Orhue, confirmed the killings to SaharaReporters.
He said, “We the entire Edolites and well-meaning Nigerians condemn the killing of our people in Edo State and Nigeria at large by herdsmen, bandits and Boko Haram.
“We want the world to be aware of the recent killing of our people in Edo State by herdsmen. Three persons were recently burnt alive. One happened in Idogbo community of Ikpoba/Okha Local Government Area on Tuesday and another person in the same community on Wednesday. Another person was also burnt alive at Sapele Road bypass, Benin.
“A time has come for this oppressive government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to know that we the people of Edo are not cowards.”
This attack is coming after some women in Edo State took to major roads in Uromi to protest. They alleged that they were being killed, harassed and intimidated by herdsmen
