Lovers Almost Lynched For Having Sex During Funeral In Anambra

Two lovers recently escaped being lynched for openly having sex during a funeral in Umuduru Community, Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State.

It was gathered that but for the intervention of some elders in the village, the lovers would have been lynched to death for publicly committing the abominable act in the neighbourhood, Southern City News reports.

According to a source, after saving the two ‘lovers’, the elders asked the man to bring six cartons of beer and some cash, in order to appease the gods of the land.

“This abominable act between the lovers took place during a burial ceremony of a lady at Umuduru Village, Ihiala.

“It was gathered from an eyewitness that a woman believed to be a commercial sex worker living in one of the brothels in this community, apparently under an influence, said she wanted to perform `a show’.

“As part of the show, she stripped and dragged a young man simply known as `Chinwuba’ from Ogboro Umunwaji Village in Ihiala out of the crowd. Both engaged in a sex orgy right in front of onlookers with impunity.

“Some angry youths pounced on them and in the process, the lady escaped. But Chinwuba was not that lucky. It took the intervention of the elders who restrained the irate youths from sending the man to his early grave.

“The elders fined him six cartons of beer and an undisclosed amount of money. They (elders) said the fine was to appease the gods of the land for the abominable act,” the source said.

Meanwhile, members of the Anambra State House of Assembly have raised alarm over the rampaging activities of herdsmen in the state.

Herdsmen Armed

The members representing Anambra West Constituency, Hon. Victor Okoye and his counterpart, representing Orumba North Constituency, Hon. Romanus Obi raised the alarm on the floor of the house during a plenary session on Friday, Dec. 15th.

Okoye who is the Majority Leader in the House, expressed worries over the recent destruction of crops in some communities in Anambra West Constituency by cattle belonging to Fulani herdsmen, called on the leaders of herdsmen in Anambra State to abide by the agreement they reached with the state government on the activities of the herdsmen.

According to the lawmaker, he has presented a motion entitled, “Need to curtail the activities of Fulani Herdsmen in Anambra State,” to the hallowed chambers, lamenting that the Federal Government appeared to have left the people to mourn their fate.

Okoye also disclosed that Fulani herdsmen attacked some communities in Anambra West Council Area where they allegedly destroyed crops and sacked many farmers from their various farmlands in his constituency.

He appealed to the state government to intervene and stop the carnage in his area.

On his part, Hon. Ugochukwu Obi regretted that despite measures put in place by the Federal Government to end incessant clashes between herdsmen and farmers such as carving some areas as grazing routes, destruction of farmlands by cattle belonging to herdsmen persists.

The lawmaker said that ‘since this destructive attack, it has been observed that no farmer in the communities has engaged in farming activities for fear of being killed.

“I am concerned about the heinous and criminal activities being perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen who in the violent act of ravaging communities, depriving persons of right to life and prosperity, raping, defiling women and destroying farms crops among other criminal activities across the country.

“Despite the public outcry and previous resolutions of the National Assembly as regards the criminal activities of herdsmen, there seems to be no visible action on the part of the government to curtail the criminal activities of these criminal elements among Fulani Herdsmen.”

The lawmaker who quoted Section 33(1) of Chapter (iv) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) said, “Every person has a right to life and no one shall be deprived intentionally of his life save in the execution of a court sentence in respect of criminal offence of which he has been found guilty in Nigeria.

“The Africa Chapter on Human and Peoples Rights of which Nigeria is a signatory also provides for Right to Life and Respect for Integrity of persons, Freedom from Slavery, Torture, Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading treatment.

“Section 43 of the Constitution provides that every citizen shall have a right to acquire and own immovable property anywhere in Nigeria.

“The 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended) in Section 14(b) clearly provides that the security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government.”

He warned that the situation might get worse if drastic action was not taken to curtail the activities of Fulani herdsmen.

“We cannot continue to live like this in the country, the Federal Government, should as a matter of urgency, step in and curb the criminal activities of these herdsmen,” he added.

Obi, therefore, urged the Federal Government to compel herdsmen to always graze their cattle on areas so designated, instead of doing so on farmlands to end clashes between them and farmers.
