Days after the brutal attacks on Ugwujoro village in the Nimbo Community of Uzo Uwani Local Government Area in Enugu State, Governor Peter Mbah visited the community with assurances of justice and support for the affected community.

The attack, allegedly carried out by suspected killer ‘herdsmen’, has claimed multiple lives, leaving the residents of Nimbo in deep sorrow and fear.

The incident has not only shocked the community but also reignited longstanding concerns over security in the region, particularly in areas like Uzo Uwani, which have witnessed previous incidents of violence.

Governor Peter Mbah, during his visit to the Nimbo community, expressed sadness over the dastardly act and declared it malicious and unacceptable.

He reiterated the government’s primary responsibility to ensure the security and welfare of the people of Enugu State, promising to deploy all available resources to identify, track, capture, and bring the culprits to justice.

Addressing the grievances and recommendations of the Nimbo community, Governor Mbah assured them of swift action.

He acknowledged the need for representation in government and the strengthening of local security resources, pledging to address these concerns as promised.

Mbah announced comprehensive support measures for the survivors and families of the victims.

He assured that scholarships would be awarded to the children of the victims and employment opportunities would be provided to family members in need of jobs.

The governor’s visit and statements come days after widespread condemnation from political figures and community leaders.

Peter Obi, in a statement, decried the apparent lack of government response to the killings and emphasised the critical importance of visible commitment to the security of Nigerians.

Additionally, Obi highlighted the strategic significance of Uzo Uwani as the leading agricultural hub of Enugu State and warned of the severe consequences of continued insecurity on food production.
