Ikom Youths Brutalized After They Were Reportedly Attacked By Nigerian Army For Chasing Herders From Their Community (VIDEO)
The Nigerian Army has been blamed of brutally oppressing teenagers resisting cattle grazing on their farms in Nde village, Ikom LGA, Cross Rivers state.
Soldiers brutalized ten teenagers from the Nde Community in Ikom Local Government Area, Cross River State, forcing people and monarchs to appeal to the military and the state government for assistance.
According to community residents, the teens “begged the herdsmen” to leave their land after their cattle ate practically all of their crops.
As a result, soldiers are said to have arrived in the hamlet and beaten up the teenagers who had asked the ranchers to leave.
Residents of the village have stated that they are peaceful and have requested that the soldiers and ranchers leave them alone.
