Senator Moro, who represents the district in the National Assembly, informed that Apa, Agatu and Otukpo Local Government Areas of the state, have been under bloody attacks by the marauding herders leading to wanton destruction of lives and property.

The lawmaker, in a statement signed by his Media Adviser, Emmanuel John and issued at the weekend in Abuja, frowned at the development and called on both the federal and state governments to “take immediate steps to nip the barbaric acts in the bud.”

Senator Moro declared that he could “no longer guarantee the continued patience of the affected people who have been waiting on government to come to their aid’, adding that “the victims have been pushed to the wall and will resort to self-help if help does not come to them immediately.”

He totally condemned the recent killings in the land, especially the last Sunday and Friday killings in Ogbaulu community, in Agatu Local Government Area, saying the unprovoked attacks which resulted in the gruesome murder of five armless villagers on their farms are unacceptable.

He, therefore, called on security agents to go after the perpetrators of the heinous crime and bring them to book.
