Herdsmen, cattle invade Anambra school.

Herdsmen with their cattle reportedly on Thursday, invaded Ideke Secondary School in the Ogbaru Local Government Area Anambra State.

Teachers and students of the school, who raised the alarm, described the encroachment as incessant, and left the school abruptly.

In a chat with newsmen, acting Principal of the school, Ann Nwosu, called on the state government to come to their rescue.

She regretted the presence of herdsmen and their cattle in the school regularly, saying: “It is worrisome to see both cattle as well as herdsmen loitering around the school compound, especially during the study hours.

“This poses a threat and great danger, not only to the students and teachers, but also to everybody”.

A teacher in the school, Mrs Nkoli Anikpe, said, “The children were harassed by these herdsmen and their cattle whenever they went out on break.

“The herdsmen have threatened us on several occasions when we tried to stop them from encroaching on our compound”.

Chinyere Mbakwe, Special Assistant to the Governor on Secondary School Monitoring, in a reaction described the incident as worrisome.
