The news that the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Zone 6 Calabar, Musa Kimo has come out to claim on Tuesday that some persons have been arrested for allegedly beheading a herdsman in Onunwakpu, Izzi local government area of Ebonyi state came to me as a rude shock.

According to the AIG who spoke to newsmen in Abakaliki in an interview after he paid a courtesy call on the Governor of the state, David Umahi, said that last year, four residents of the area were killed by herdsmen who attacked the community and destroyed houses, economic trees, and other valuable properties and by the weekend, a herdsman was allegedly beheaded in the community.

AIG Musa Kimo said some persons have been arrested in connection to the gruesome murder of the herdsman and would be prosecuted.

Now, the question begging for answer is, some herdsmen murdered FOUR RESIDENTS in Abakaliki and nothing was done to the killers, then, when the residents decided to carry out a reprisal attack and had a herdsman killed, A WHOLE ASSISTANT INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE CAME AFTER THEM?
