UGHELLI—LESS than two months after a gang of armed  herdsmen waylaid commuters on the Agadama-Bomadi Road in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State and robbed them of their valuables, security operatives in the area, yesterday, dispersed a gang of herdsmen who attempted to rob travelers on the same road.

Hundreds of travellers heading to and from Bomadi community, a major road linking many Ijaw communities in Bomadi and parts of Burutu Local Government areas of the state, were stranded as they had to park their cars on the side of the road while the herdsmen operated.

Though efforts to get details of the incident from the state Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Andrew Aniamaka, were fruitless at press time, a security source at the Ughelli ‘A’ Division told Vanguard on phone that the herdsmen, who came out in a flash, immediately retreated following the arrival of policemen from the division.
