False Alarm: Ujene Charges Security Operatives On Creativity, Quality Service Delivery

Delta State Mediator between Herdsmen and Farmers, Mr. Mathew Ujene has charged the security operatives in the state on the need for creativity and quality service delivery in area of responsibility.

Mr. Ujene gave the charge while reacting to the false-alarm raised by Vigilante group attached to Atuh Farm, Amorji, in Ndokwa West Local Government Area.

Africa Investigative Magazine gathered that the Vigilante group at Atuh Farm owned by Chief Nnamdi Ochonogor sent ‘red alert’, claiming that Fulani Herdsmen had besieged the vicinity.

The incident, which took place last week generated tension at Amorji Community and its environ.

It was further gathered that Rtd. Hon. Augustine Okom, the secretary to the Ndokwa West Local Government Council, on the order of the Council Chairman, Chief Goddey Obi Nzete sought the intervention of the mediator between herdsmen and farmers to restore normalcy.

The Mediator, in the company of Nyanyan Mohammed, the owner of the cows at Amorji Community rushed to Amorji, only to find out it was false.

Further investigations proved that the same Vigilante group shot at Yaya Mohammed’s cows, pulled down the Farm’s security fence, and fired gunshots in the air.

An action, the Vigilantes reportedly claimed was carried out by suspected Fulani Herdsmen who want to attack the people.

The Mediator cautioned the vigilante members to desist from raising ‘false alarm’, noting that such unethical conduct sparks crisis in the community.

He also appealed to the Ndokwa West Local Government Area Vigilante Chairman, Hon. Charles Odili to warn his men against taking laws into their hands.
