Group warns against politicization of Eha-Amufu crisis in Enugu

A socio-political pressure group in Enugu state has warned against the politicization of the Eha- Amufu crisis which has led to several killings and destruction of property.

Addressing newsmen in Abuja, the national coordinator of the organization under the aegis of Enugu Good Governance Group, Comrade Odinaka Okechukwu said such politicization would not allow for a peaceful resolution of the crisis.

Comrade Okechukwu who commended the Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi administration’s effort to solve the crisis however called on the federal government to wade into the matter so that it could be permanently resolved.

The Eha- Amufu people of Enugu state have been embroiled in violent clashes involving herdsmen, farmers, armed bandits, as well as border disputes with neighboring communities in Benue state for many years.
