PAINFUL EXIT: See the Two Brothers Slaughtered by Fulani Herdsmen in Ebonyi State.
Residents of Aliokwe-Aguachi Ikwagba Ngo, Ohaukwu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State are in tears after suspected Fulani herdsmen killed two biological brother
The siblings identified as Uchenna Eze Ominyi and Dominic Ikechukwu Ominyi were killed when the assailants invaded and attacked communities bordering Ebonyi and Benue State.
The attack in Ndiobasi and Obakotara communities in the Ado Local Government Area of Benue State, which shares boundary with Ohaukwu, Ebonyi and Izzi LGAs of Ebonyi State, occurred in the early hours of Sunday, May 3
It was gathered that the brothers were in one Mission Hospital in Izzi where Ikechukwu was said to have undergone surgery and was being taken care of by Uchenna when the assailants attacked the hospital, killing them alongside other patient
The Commissioner for Internal Security, Border Peace and Conflicts Resolution, Chief Stanley Okoro-Emegha, who had confirmed the incident state said:
“The Ebonyi State Government has observed with dismay the invasion of Nwori Ndi-Obasi Village in Ado LGA of Benue State in the early hours of today, Sunday, 30th May 2021. To forestall possible spillover of the attack to the neighboring villages of Okwofuruike and Ohabuleodo respectively, in Izzi and Ebonyi LGAs, Ebonyi State Government effectively mobilized and dispatched a combined team of security agencies and members of Ebube Agu security outfit to ensure that peace and normalcy are restored in the troubled area.
Below is an account of the incident by a member of the community, Moses Sonike Onw
‘How it all went down! Comrade Ominyi Uchenna Eze and his younger brother Ikechukwu Eze were of Aguachi Ukwagba Autonomous community, in Ohaukwu LGA Ebonyi State.
Mr Ikechukwu (Uche’s younger brother) was diagnosed of fatty lump between his waist and was referred to a rural medical center at the invaded Izzi Community for a successful surgery, since the general CONSULTANT OF FMC ABAKALIKI, had, without any reasonable doubt, confirmed that Ikechukwu will not walk again with his two legs, if the surgery is carried out at the FMC Abakalik
As God willed, the surgery was very successful as at early March, and it has to take time for the heavy wound to be heale
In all those time, Uche was the one looking after his brother Ikechukwu at the attacked village, pending his recovery at the clin
This decision of taking care of his blood brother while receiving treatment, he made against all odds. A very costly sacrifice he was fond of, not minding what it will deny him. It is aid that Uche lost it all while taking care of his brother.
Uche lost his business, Uche lost his projects, Uche lost his brother he wanted to safe & Uche lost his own life.
UCHE was a graduate of Food Science and Technology(FST) from Ebonyi State University. Through his studies, Uche was a typical example of a hustling and suffering student. He never forgot where he came from and that fetched him flying color.
I.k on the other hand, after his secondary school, has chosen to support his brothers through his petty business at Lagos to finish their studies and gain jobs so that he can further his own study. Until they journey beyond, UCHE was a true companion and loving brother.
If ever I will trust a human being, it was Uche that I find to be number one.
Simply put, Uche (AKA Admirable) forfeited what he was doing in the city to look after his younger brother Ikechukwu in his hospital bed, but they were slaughtered by Fulani Herdsmen.
Let there be justice for Uche and his brother Ike.
