Speaking with journalists on Saturday, a community leader, Lt. Commander Anthony Ogie (Rtd) said the herdsmen have been harassing the community for some time.

“Last week, around 7 pm, they came close to the houses, shooting but when the people came out, they went back to the bush. Anytime the herdsmen come, we usually call the police and soldiers, who will come but they do not go into the bush where these herdsmen have their camps even when the villagers volunteer to lead the security men,” he said.
