VICE President Yemi Osinbajo, yesterday, described the killing of no fewer than 22 innocent rural dwellers by Fulani herdsmen in four communities of Ishielu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State as sad and unacceptable.
He stressed that the dastardly act cannot be defended adding that the Federal Government will ensure justice for the victims.
Osinbajo stated this while speaking to Ebonyi stakeholders at the Christian Ecumenical Centre, Abakaliki. Aside justice for the victims of the attack, he said the Federal Government through the Ministry of Humanitarian Services and Disaster Management will provide relief materials to them to cushion the negative impact of the incident.
The VP, as part of his one day working visit, visited the troubled communities of Effiu/ Ezza-Effium Communities of Ohaukwu Local Government Area and Egedege Community where innocent Ebonyi rural dwellers were killed in Ishielu LGA of the State.
