Protesters on Wednesday blocked the streets and the major roads in Uromi, the headquarters of Esan North-East Local Govt Area of Edo State.
The women blocked both sides of the highway, preventing motorists from continuing with their trips.
Our reporter gathered that the women from the town are demanding a stop to rape, kidnap, and killings by the Fulani herders in their farms and bushes.
According to an eyewitness, one of the protesting women was heard saying the only solution is for the authority to ask the Fulani herdsmen to vacate their town and villages.
“We no longer have the confidence to go to our farms anymore, they rape and kill us, they don’t care if you are a married woman, old or young, even if you wear double jeans to the farm they will still rape you and if you resist them they will kill you,” the woman said.
