Chief Johnny Chukwudi Metchie who is the President General of the Umueri community in Anambra State has come out to openly debunked and do away with all the reports which have been making the rounds that some Fulani herdsmen invaded his community and wreaked havoc.

A video which had gone viral on social media had captured a man alleging that gunmen who had been suspected to be Fulani herdsmen attacked the Umueri community.

But in a press statement he personally signed on Thursday, Metchie warned against spreading false information capable of inciting violence between members of the community and Fulani herders. He also warned those spreading the fake news, particularly a man identified as Delight to desist from such acts.

“Please, disregard every information from that fellow claiming that the man was killed by Fulani men because, our preliminary investigation and that of the police, which led to a confession by one of the killers apprehended by Umueri vigilante men has revealed that the man was not killed by the Fulani herdsmen.

“But instead of wait for confirmed report from the people who are handling the case, someone chose to act silly, with the aim of provoking crisis between Igbos and the Fulanis in Igboland. This is unacceptable”, he added.

In another report, the Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodimma has declared a war on Oil Bunkering and Pipeline vandalism in the State vowing to make sure the perpetrators are made to face the law.

The Governor made the declaration yesterday while meeting with the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Marlin Sylva; the Chief of Defense Staff, General Lucky Irabor together with his entourage, and the CEO of NNPC PLC, Mele Kyari at the Government House New Executive Chamber.

Governor Uzodimma in his address disclosed efforts the Shared Prosperity Government has made with joint forces of the security agencies to curb oil theft and secure oil production in the State which has been resuscitated from its low level production.

He further called more sophisticated collaboration between the Federal Government, NNPC Nigerian Limited, Stakeholders and the grassroots to eliminate the menace in the State.
