There was mild pandemonium in Ukpata and Opanda communities in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State caused by the killing of two young men by suspected herdsmen over the weekend. 

A yet-to-be-identified student of Nsukka High School was shot at Ukwuakpu, between Ukpata and Uvuru communities. According to reports, the student was pleading with the herdsmen not to rape his sister when he was shot.

The Eastern Updates was reliably informed that the rape victim is now receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital.

Another victim fell to the bullets of the nomads at Opanda, all in Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State. He was coming from Adani to Opanda when he ran into the rampaging herdsmen and was killed in cold blood.

Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area has come under severe attacks from herdsmen in the recent past, resulting in the killing of mourners at Ugwuijoro Nimbo.

The herders had also killed others in different parts of the council area recently.

In another report, Enugu State Governor, Peter Mbah has declared that he has been able to come up with a bold plan and vision for climate change that focuses on a green and sustainable future for the state.

Mbah made this disclosure during his speech to mark the one-year anniversary of his administration.

Chukwumerije Okereke, a Professor and Special Adviser to the Governor on Climate Policy and Sustainable Development, stated that the Mbah administration is well aware of the devastating impact of climate change on economic growth and livelihoods.

The administration is therefore determined to tackle it in line with his vision to reduce poverty and deliver people-focused governance in the state.

He stated that Enugu, under his leadership, recognizes the critical need for a strong climate policy that would pave the way for a clean energy transition, ignite green innovation, strengthen climate resilience, and promote sustainable economic growth for the state, assuring a brighter, greener future for everybody.
