Following the incessant destruction of farm crops on farmlands by herdsmen in Umunede in Ika North East Local Government Area Delta State, the revered monarch of Umunede kingdom, HRM Dr. Ezeagwu Ezenwali I (JP) has ordered the leader of cattle rearers in Umunede, Mr. Isa and his group to evacuate their cattle from the community’s farmlands.
He made the pronouncement on Wednesday June 3, 2020 at his palace after receiving countless complaints from his subjects about the menace of the visitors.
HRM Dr. Ezeagwu ordered Mr. Isa and others involved in the menace to dismantle the camps they erected in Umunede farmlands, saying that he would no longer tolerate anyone that causes pain to his people.
He urged them to live the bush and pack into the town, saying that it is only animals that dwell in the bush.
In his words, “Isa, remove your cattle from Umunede land. I do not want any further complaints from my people about cattle destroying their crops. I am not pursuing you, but leave the farmlands alone and come inside the town to dwell. We cannot know what is happening when you live in the camp. Mr. Isa, vacate your cattle from Umunede land.”
Responding, the group thanked the monarch for his great wisdom, saying that they were grateful for his counsel.
Also speaking, the Chairman of Ogbe Obi Committee, Chief Amos O. Onyeagwu applauded the traditional ruler for his good leadership and pledged their continuous support for the growth and development of Umunede kingdom.
