All efforts to vacate the road by the AIG and travelers en route to Port Harcourt could not yield any fruitful results, as the women insisted that unless federal government takes concrete steps to address the herdsmen attacks, they would remain on the road.

One of the women leaders, who spoke with SaharaReporters, disclosed that the community has lost over 10 souls to the armed herdsmen while over 15 women, some of whom were pregnant, have been raped in the bush by the herdsmen.

The protesting women therefore issued a four-day ultimatum to the Fulani herdsmen to leave their community bush.
