ABRAKA—THE member representing Ethiope East in Delta State House of Assembly, Evance Ivwurie, weekend, led a team of security personnel to an enclave of herdsmen operating in the Abraka area of the state on a search for a farmer declared missing last Wednesday after he was attacked by the herdsmen.


The farmer, Mr. Happy Akpomiemie, his wife, Patience and son, Elvis were reportedly attacked at their cassava farm in Abraka by herdsmen who shot his wife on the back while the farmer was declared missing.

Ivwurie in company of a team of his personal security team and members of the Abraka vigilante, stormed the area where the herdsmen are said to be operating and recovered the remains of the farmer whose lifeless body was riddled with bullets.

Meanwhile, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Muhammed Mustafa has said that the Nigeria Police will no longer condone killings by herdsman in the area under any guise.

The state police chief who expressed sadness over last Wednesday’s incident during a condolence visit to the Akpomiemie family, noted that the command will henceforth go hard on anyone in the state who fails to embrace peace.
