Not only do herdsmen kill their farmers and destroy their farms, they also allegedly rape their wives and children.

15 communities in Orumba-South Local Government of Anambra State have raised alarm over the activities of herdsmen in their area.

The spokesperson for the communities, Mr Chukwudi Ugochukwu, stated that the herdsmen allowed their cows to graze on farms, thereby destroying people’s livelihoods.

Ugochukwu also said some women and girls had been raped on their way to their farms.

He added that no fewer than 20 of such cases had been recorded, adding that he would not go beyond for fear of stigmatising the victims.
