The Otulu community Chief, Paul Eboji, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Otulu on Sunday.

He said the people were now living in fear due to the rampant attacks of the headsmen.

Eboji added that government’s intervention was necessary because the community was peace-loving and would not want to be dragged into clashes with herdsmen that could take lives.index

He alleged that the Fulani herdsmen had turned their farmlands into grazing ground for their cattle.

The community chief added that the herdsmen attacked and maimed the helpless community farmers whenever challenged.

“We  are living in fear due to the invasion of our farmlands by the Fulani cattle rearers. They beat and maim our people when challenged in the farms.

“We have made several complaints to the police but all to no avail. The herdsmen have continued to destroy our farms with impunity.

“Our yams and cassava farms have become grazing areas for their cattle. We are appealing to government to intervene and save our community
