    Not less than four persons have been reported killed between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning by suspected herdsmen, who invaded some parts of Abraka community, Ethiope East council area of Delta state.

    The Nation gathered that the killer- herdsmen also barred farmers and labourers from gaining access into farmlands.

    They further took over parts of the community with their herds of cow, leaving many injured.

    According to community sources, among the four persons who had lost their lives to the invading herdsmen, was one Kennedy Ukuanovwe.

    The other three casualties, who could not be identified yet as at the time of filing this report, included a woman, a soldier and one other male.

    All of them were reportedly killed by the rampaging herdsmen at different locations in the community on Wednesday morning.

    A community source, who spoke to The Nation on the development, said: “It was only Kennedy (Ukuanovwe), who was killed on Tuesday night that has been identified.

    “The other three dead people have not been identified in person yet. The other three were killed by herdsmen this morning (Wednesday)”.

    Policemen and other security operatives were seen patrolling the town, which is host to the main campus of the Delta State University (DELSU) and hometown of the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in last month’s elections, Chief Great Ogboru.

    Contacted, the Delta state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Adeyinka Adeleke, said: “The problem is it is not only one person that died. We saw corpses.

    “Other persons also died but we don’t know who actually killed them. Our men are still in the bush. When they come out, they will be able to give details.”
