Uwheru kingdom in Ughelli North local government area of Delta State has reportedly banned the sale and consumption of beef days after ten farmers were brutally murdered by suspected herdsmen.
Professor Patrick Muoboghare, the Delta State Commissioner for Education, who is also from Uwheru community revealed this on Saturday February 22, 2020. He went on to state that it was a simple solution to herdsmen attack in the community and a decision that will force herdsmen to vacate the Kingdom.
The Commissioner also disclosed that the leaders of the community resolved to bury the late victims of the attack and also train the kids of those killed from primary school to University level.
“The entire people of Uwheru community appreciate and thank the Governor for his timely intervention in preventing the blood bath that would have happened but for the governor’s intervention because the army came prepared.”
Mr Sunday Iniovogoma, the Chairman of Agadama community, who also confirmed the ban on sale and consumption of beef after the meeting with the traditional ruler of Uwheru Kingdom, Agbaivwe III, HRM Odio R’Ode, said;
“Such a person will equally be banished from the communities or made to pay a particular amount as fine depending on the gravity of the offence.”
