Lawmaker representing Ethiope East in Delta State House of Assembly, Hon. Evance Ivwurie, has once again called on the Federal Government to come to the rescue of Ethiope East Local Government Area, Delta State, over the incessant killings, kidnappings, rapes and destruction of farmland by alleged Fulani herdsmen.
Ivwurie made the call following the recent murder of Mr. Solomon Ejoor, a native of Urhuoka – Abraka, married whose mother was held captive by men suspected to be fulani herdsmen in her Abraka farmland and was told by the herdsmen to call his children to come and rescue her and upon the son getting there, he was reportedly ambushed and killed.
The lawmaker said, “As I speak to you now, Abraka has been in turmoil all day and the town is still spoiling and anarchy is brewing as my constituents are now ready to take the bull by the horn following the conspiratorial silence-scheme of the Federal Government and the security agencies.
“The Governors of the Southern and Middle Belt States of Nigeria have been seriously limited and incapacitated over the issue of the herdsmen terrorism and menace leading to scores of killings since the advent of our president.
“I have been inundated but refused to be overwhelmed by security questioning, statements and checks since I informed the world about the Helicopter that has been landing in the Ovre r’Igun/Eku/Abraka where the herdsmen numbering about 2,000 reign with over 10,000 cattle.
“The facts are there and the lazy operatives have refused to investigate this extremely credible information because they already know it is true.
Quoting Franz Fanon, Ivwurie said “Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn’t fit in with the core belief”.
“Each generation must discover its mission, fulfill it or betray it, in relative opacity.When we revolt it’s not for a particular culture. We revolt simply because, for many reasons, we can no longer breathe…we can no longer take it.” He ended
