Suspected Fulani herdsmen have attacked and killed two farmers in Omasi, an agricultural community in Ayamelum Local Government Area of Anambra state.
During the visit of the state governor, Willie Obiano, to Anambra State Teaching Hospital, Amaku, where the injured was receiving treatment, it was gathered that the hostility began when the herdsmen invaded the farms of the villagers with their cattle and destroyed their crops.
The farmers warned them to desist but unknown to them, the herdsmen were bitter over the warning and ambushed three farmers killing two and leaving one injured.
The governor condemned the attack on his people for no justifiable reason and ordered that the perpetrators though on the run to be apprehended and punished accordingly.
He also assured the people of his commitment to securing every area of the state ants and criminal elements.
