Enugu State located at the Southeast region of Nigeria, has recorded the highest casualty in the hands of Terrorist Fulani Herdsmen in the entire Southern Nigeria. It is not exaggeration to say that the State of Enugu is under siege with the recent discovery of various Tunnels dug by the Terrorist Fulani Herdsmen by the State Security Operatives.

The number of lives that are lost every week and other vices ranging from rape, torture, destruction of farm produce and Kidnapping is at alarming state.

According to the recent Global Terrorist Index, the Fulani Herdsmen is the 4th world most dangerous Terror Group. In Nigeria, this group is under the aegis of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN). This group have carried out many killings across Nigerian States and without fear, have claimed responsibility for each occasion. From Benue, Taraba, Plateau, Zamfara, Kogi, Anambra, Edo, Enugu, Ebonyi etc, it is on Record that over 65% of Nigerian States have witnessed at least one attack by this Group.

In Enugu where my Focus is, since the regime of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi who should be the Chief Security Officer of the State, over 500 indigenes have been brutally murdered by this group of vampires. Among those who have lost their lives are Catholic Priests, Rev Sisters and so many other defenceless citizens of the State including Women and Children. Most shocking is the recent but bloody butcher of a Catholic Priest, Rev Fr Paul Offu who was murdered just few weeks back on his way to his friend's house who happens to be a Priest too. Within 48hours of this deadly act, a Monarch and his wife were Kidnapped by same set of Terrorists, they demanded for a ransom of N20m in exchange for their release.

The Underground tunnel was uncovered by the State Securities through the confession made by a captured Fulani Herdsman. These Tunnels where used as Cells for their captives.

Today, the body of a pregnant woman was discovered and evidence revealed that the Terrorists Fulani Herdsmen had raped her to death before she was butchered. This is one of the greatest evils against humanity.

The question that requires urgent answer now, is - What does it take for the State Government (Governor Ugwuanyi) who happens to be the Chief Security Officer of the state, to stand up and say, "NEVER AGAIN". When will he make this statement?

Yesterday, we watched the Governor matching round the Tunnels to confirm it by himself.
Now, as the Chief Security Officer of the State, is it not time to take the same action employed by the former Governor of Ekiti State?

The time to proscribe Miyetti Allah and declare them a Terrorist group in Enugu State and all States across Biafra land, is now.

One can recall very easily, how this Enugu State Governor in collaboration with other Southeast Governors, targeted the Peaceful IPOB and proscribed them till date. So, I wonder why he cannot proscribe this Murderous Fulani Herdsmen in Enugu State.
