handed over to the police for thorough investigation Eze Ignatius Asor, the traditional ruler of Obudi Agwa autonomous community in Oguta local government area of Imo state, has alleged that 88 bullets were recovered from a herdsman caught in the community.
It was gathered that the monarch said the herdsman noted there were 100 pieces of bullets in his sack but he added that 88 bullets were later found after counting.
It was reported that he said the herder could not explain where the remaining 12 were, adding that he suspected the missing bullets had been used by the suspects and his gangs.
He said the situation was very tensed as many people wanted to take to violence but added that he cautioned them against taking law to their hands.
“The situation now is very tensed as our people want to take to violence. But I told them ‘no’ because these people are armed to the teeth.
They are with sophisticated rifles and our people don’t have them. What we have here are hunters. “Guess what will happen when a hunter goes to face somebody with AK-47.
I called my people and told them to let’s take to dialogue, as I will not like a break down of law and order in the community. So, my people kept watch over the Fulani man until the police came and took him away,” he said.
