In reaction to this, angry women of the community led by Nkechinyere Nwosu, wife of the paramount ruler, Ekwu I of Umuekwune-Ohoro, Igbo-Etche kingdom, Eze Innocent Nwosu marched to the palace of the monarch, to urge him to take action. 

 The women also appealed to the state governor Nyesom Wike to come to their rescue as they were scared that the assault could escalate into raping females and butchering villagers. Narrating the women’s message to her husband, Nkechinyere urged the monarch to inform the governor to take immediate action to put an end to the deadly activities of the herdsmen. 

According to the monarch’s wife, there was hunger in the land due to the destructive actions of the herdsmen. She stated: “We want His Excellency, the governor of Rivers State to come and help us over these herdsmen and their cattle; they are destroying our farmlands. 

“They come with guns and arrows; when we talk, they will point guns and arrows at us and that is why we do not complain because we do not want to die.”
