Fulani Herdsmen living in camps and shanties in and around the bushes of some communities in Oshimili North Local Government Area (LGA) of Delta State, have obtained Court Order not to vacate the said bushes.

The Fulani Nomads had approached a Delta State High Court, in Akwukwu Igbo, challenging the eviction notice, lawfully issued by the Council Chairman of Oshimili North LGA, Mr Louis Ndukwe, against all nomads, in a view to containing the several criminalities, kidnapping, murders of the LGA’s residents, and minimise the high level of clashes between them and locals.

Delivering the interim order, Justice M.C. Okoh, ruled that the Fulani Herdsmen should be allowed to stay in their shanties within the bushes of Oshimili North LGA pending the determination of the substantive suit of the subject matter.

The Court, however, adjourned the substantive suit to 8th day of June 2020.

Meanwhile, Mr Louis Ndukwe had advised the Fulani Herdsmen to buy land within a residential area, quite within 7 days from living in the bushes of his LGA and aiding criminalities.

The Fulani Herdsmen refused to adhere to the advice of the peaceful LGA chairman, went to Court and challenge same while propagating that, they are now indigenes of the LGA, following their lengthy stay in the state.
