It has been several days of protest in some communities in Ebonyi State as another protest last Saturday rocked the Ishiagu community in the Ivo Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.



Several women took to the street to express their dissatisfaction with the current state of things in the community which ranges from killings and kidnapping of relatives by suspected Fulani herdsmen in the area.

The protest, which had lingered for four days, resulted in the setting ablaze of the palace of the monarch of Ishiagu kingdom, Eze Moses Ngele, by hoodlums who allegedly hijacked the protest.

It was gathered that the house and car, including other valuable properties of the Ivo LGA chairman, Emmanuel Aja, were attacked by the rampaging protesters.

Investigation revealed that the women protesters barricaded Amaeze road and other entrances to the community, demanding that the state government and security agencies arrest and prosecute their relatives' killers and kidnappers, which have persisted for a while long time.

An eyewitness who spoke to Pecohub said, “Women of Ishiagu community staged protest since early hours of yesterday, and till this present time, it’s still ongoing.

“They are protesting the incessant killings and kidnapping along Amaeze road by unknown gunmen. As I speak with you, there’s a total breakdown of laws and order.
