BREAKING: HERDSMEN ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE KILLING OF ENUGU PREGNANT WOMAN.

NEWS: BREAKING: HERDSMEN ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE KILLING OF ENUGU PREGNANT WOMAN. [New Naija News] » Naijacrawl

Youths under the aegis of 'Enugu Youth Coalition' have dismissed media reports that Fulani Herdsmen are responsible for the killing of a pregnant woman in the state.

There were reports earlier today that suspected hoodlums attacked a pregnant woman while returning from the farm.

Her womb was reportedly opened and her unborn child removed. In a statement made available on Thursday by Dr. Edwin Obune, leader of Enugu Youth Coalition, the group condemned whatever circumstances that might have led to the incidence in Nchatancha Nike in Enugu East Local Government Area of the state.

The group, however, said that herdsmen were responsible for the action.

The statement reads:

"I read the above story in the Punch Newspaper insinuating that herdsmen were responsible for the killing of a pregnant woman whose identity is yet to be established in Enugu State today."

"However, I want to condemn whatever circumstances that might have led to the incidence in Nchatancha Nike in Enugu East Local Government Area of the state, but then I take exception in the claim that herdsmen were responsible for the action when the identity of the killer's have not been established by any authority in the state."

"The reporter jumped the gun by claiming that herdsmen were responsible for the act, whereas the state Police Commissioner whom he contacted asked him to wait until both the identity of the victim and the killer's are established."

"Again, while I condemn the unfortunate incident in it's entirety, I also condemn the Punch Newspaper reporter for being sensational in his reportage by not conducting proper investigation to ascertain the identity of those behind the crime nor waited for the state Police Command to establish the identity of the killer's before publishing it to the reading public."

"I strongly believe, the reporter played to the gallery in his report.

What stops him from using words like 'unknown gunmen' instead of herdsmen until the identity of the killer or killers are known?" "What if the account of the police becomes different, whereas he has already made Nigerians to believe that herdsmen were responsible for the crime?".

"Just as the identity of the victim was not known, neither was the identity of the killer's known also."

"More so, a content analysis of all his reports from the state since this year shows that he has biased mind against the Government, the Fulanis and the peace-loving people of Enugu State."

"I'm also aware of the sustained efforts by some failed politicians from the state to use ethnic profiling against the Fulanis in the state to settle political scores and incite the people against the government without minding the collateral damage such an action would cause to the state and it's people in the future."

"Finally, while I strongly condemn the killing, I urge Nigerians not to believe the report until the identity of the perpetrators of the crime are fully established by relevant authority."

"I however commend the pro-active actions taken by the state governor to unravel the identity of the killer's."

"In similar vein, I also commend other news media for not pointing accusing finger or pre-empting the identity of the killers in their reportage."
