The former governor of Abia state Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu has described the incessant herdsmen killing as a sabotage of the democratic process. He stated this in a chat with newsmen in his home town Igbere, Bende LGA, Abia state.
He said, the herdsmen have over the years been living peacefully with the people and attributed the recent rampage to influx of criminals from Libya and Mali where there are lots of loose arms.
He said his administration took proactive measures to ensure that foreigners do not invade communities and massacre people. “When I was a governor, ten people cannot invade a community and kill people. That was impossible.
