Presidency reportedly ignored calls from Enugu State Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi concerning Fulani herdsmen attack


There are reports that President Muhammeadu Buhari ignored phone calls from the Enugu state Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi before the Fulani herdsmen attacked Nimbo community in Uzo Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu state in the early hours of Monday killing 21 people, injuring scores and destroying properties.
On receiving information that Fulani herdsmen were mobilizing around the area before the attacks on Monday, the Governor reached out to President Buhari and was put on hold by the President’s aides for almost two hours. The Governor also called the state commissioner of police and GOC officer commanding Nigerian Army 82 Division Enugu but was directed to call the President.
TalkParlour recieved reliable information from sources in the government that Governor Ugwuanyi was still making efforts to reach the President  in the presence of about 17 withnesses when he received reports that the attacks he was trying to prevent had already taken place.
It was however observed that military and police units were quickly deployed to the scene of the massacre to prevent reprisal attacks after ignoring intelligence reports about the planned attacks.
