Imo group threatens self-defence over herdsmen attack

NEWS DIGEST–An Imo State group under the aegis of Indigenous Imo Town Unions has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to address herdsmen attacks in South-East.

The leaders of the group said the region would resort to self-defence if the issue was not addressed.

In a communiqué after their meeting in Owerri, they urged the Federal Government to live up to its responsibilities.

In the communiqué signed by its National President Emeka Diwe, the group said, “One of the primary roles and obligations a reasonable and caring government owes its people is protection of lives and property. It follows that where the government fails in this important duty, the citizens will be left with no other option but to reactivate traditional self-defence approach to avoid being destroyed or exterminated by the invaders/attackers.”
