Agricultural activities have resumed in eastern Nigeria as farmers return to the farm after what they describe as the successful flushing out of violent/killer Fulani herdsmen by members of the Eastern Security Network.
Farmers from Abia who spoke to our correspondent said that they now enjoy peace on their farms and even in their communities.
Ms. Glory Nwagbara, who said that she stopped going to her farm since August 2019, said that she has now fully returned to farming.
“I know very well that we will return home with a good harvest because here in my community we have completely returned to agriculture without fear of being raped or killed by Fulani herdsmen,” she said while thanking Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB ) and the Eastern Security Network.
Mr. Benjamin Ndukwe, a yam farmer, had lost a lot last year when herdsmen invaded his farm with cattle, said: “I thank ESN for helping us get back to our farm and ensuring that our agricultural products are safe.”
“Here for my community everywhere dey peaceful because Fulani people wey dey rape people for bush and farm don run,” said a mother of 3, Mrs Uchechi.
Azuka Daniel, Chioma Onwuka, described Eastern Security Network as “sent by God”, adding that now everywhere there is peace in their communities.
Others who also spoke, expressed their gratitude, and also hope that the peace would last for a long time.
