“Before you access any part of the south-east or south-south, you must pass through Enugu. There are many routes which the herdsmen used to connect the state.
“Some of them come in through Kogi State-Uzo Uwani local government area of Enugu State. That was the route the herdsmen that attacked Nimbo used.
“Other routes are Obollor-afor in Nsukka, Orakamu through Benue to Enugu, Aghamelumu-Nsukka route, among other routes. The herdsmen ply these routes to any part of the south-east and south-south.
The state had recently become prone to onslaughts from Fulani herdsmen, who have killed several people, while destroying properties.
Recently over 50 Fulani Herdsmen armed with machetes slaughtered a Catholic Seminarian, Lazarus Nwafor in Ndiagu, Attakwu, Akegbe-Ugwu in Nkanu-West Local Government Area of the State.
