The RUGA settlement has commenced in Ebonyi State Nigeria today as Fulani herdsmen were seen with their properties coming to settle in the land.
The News was disclosed by a Freelance Journalist who resides in Ebonyi state, Timothy Chinonso on his facebook page.
They arrived at Izzi Local Government Area of Ebonyi state with several trailers and buses loaded with their belongings.
They were fully guarded by Security Operatives to defend them against anyone who tries to resist their settlement.
The youths of the state tried to stop them but they said that
"It is their right as the state's governor Dave Umahi sold the land to them."
The police later resolved the issue and gave them another plot of land in the state.
Timothy said "
“They were later directed to another land still in the same state to settle, rear their cattle, graze the land, born and train their children and as well install their Emir in non distance time.”
