Angry women last Wednesday, took to the streets of Ekpoma, Esan West local government area in Edo state to protest the killing of a woman by suspected herdsmen.
The body of Margaret Udiamehi was found last Tuesday night by a search party after she failed to return home from the farm while the police discovered her severed head on Wednesday morning at a different location.
The protesters, carrying the victim’s body in a wheelbarrow, demanded expulsion of all herdsmen from the village and environs.
They also went to the palace of Onojie of Ekpoma and the Divisional Police headquarters to vent their anger.
Speaking on behalf of the protesters, one of the women who gave her name as Grace said they were tired of watching strangers destroyed their crops, rape and kill women in the village. She called for government protection to allow them go to the farm.
