Governor Udom Commiserates With Family Of Farmer Killed By Herdsmen (photos)

Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel has
commiserated with the family of a farmer
murdered by suspected herdsmen in Ikot Obio in
Mkpat Enim Local Government Area of the state
and victims of the attack.
It was gathered that the farmer identified as
Friday Etor, went to his farm and met a herd of
cattle feeding on his crops. He confronted the
herdsmen and asked them to leave his land but
they resisted.
In the ensuing disagreement, the herdsmen shot
him dead. Several people were equally attacked
by the herdsmen. An 11-year-old boy Nsikak
Udoh, was also hospitalised, following bullet
wounds he sustained in the attack, Igbere TV
reports.
Addressing the people of Ikot Obio Nso, Ikpa
Ikono clan where the dastardly act took place,
Governor Emmanuel who was represented by the
Secretary to the State Government, Dr Emmanuel
Ekuwem, said preying on the lives of the people of
the state by suspected Fulani herdsmen will not
be accepted.
“Governor Udom Emmanuel is very saddened and
unhappy by this unprovoked attack on our people.
He called me by 1am in the midnight and asked
me to be here this morning to console the people
and calm frayed nerves.
Although we are peaceful and civilized in Akwa
Ibom state, the elasticity of our patience is not
infinite. As it is said in science when the limit of
elasticity is exhausted there must be rupture and
we do not want that” he said.
In other news, 10days after Aliyat Tiletile went
missing, she has been found on Sunday, August
11, coincidently falls on her birthday which has
relieved the tension of her family.
