The member representing Ayamelum Constituency in the Anambra State House of Assembly, Mr Uche Okafor, has raised the alarm over the activities of herdsmen in the area.
He noted that most people from the area were afraid of coming back home to celebrate the Christmas with their kith and kin because of the activities of the herdsmen.
Okafor said, “Farming is the sole occupation of my constituents. With the destruction of the farm produce, my people will have nothing to celebrate the Yuletide.
“Above all, the people of Ayamelum outside the community are afraid of coming back home to celebrate Christmas with their families, because of the presence and activities of Fulani herdsmen.
“We need enough security at strategic places in the community to safeguard lives and property of the people.”
The Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Mrs Rita Maduagwu, while responding, urged Okafor to raise what she called a substantive motion on the issue to further push his case.
