The Nimbo community, in Enugu State, has urged the FG for compensation of N17bn following herdsmen invasion of the community. Traditional ruler of the community, Chief John Akor, made the demand when he testified at the panel of inquiry into the incidence yesterday.
He said the sum would be a recompense for the ills suffered by members of the community. His words: “Our community demands a compensation of N17bn for human losses, unlawful destruction of property and criminal deprivation of use of our farms for over two decades.
The conclusive evidence of deaths recorded during the incursion stands at 11. We equally request the FG to establish security presence in Nimbo, being a border community.” The monarch said the community also needed a traumatic hospital to rehabilitate victims of the prolonged herdsmen incursions.
