An Urhobo woman farming in Ofunwengbe community, in Ovia South West LG of Edo State was attacked this morning by 7.30am whilst on her farm alongside her daughter, by Fulani herdsmen.
The woman who is also known as Mama Touuai had been complaining to her people before today of the destruction being done to her farm by the cattle on a daily basis. She almost lost her life when she confronted the herdsmen today.
According to the woman, the Fulani herdsmen came to her farm and met her working before she knew what was happening, the herdsmen were trying to rape her by pointing a gun at her, but for her determination and boldness, she was able to drag the gun from him.
