Bandits suspected to be Fulani herdsmen have broken into the Great Saints Orphanage, Issele-Uku in Aniocha North Local Government Area of Delta State, destroying parts of the building and the vehicle parked in the compound.

The founder of the Orphanage, Mr. Emeka Ezeagbor who had also recently opened a Welfare Office in the town to assist the less privileged, had expressed shock at the extent humans can go to destroy a humanitarian facility.


The philanthropist and humanitarian illustrious son of Issele-Uku who cried out over the incident from his base in London, wondered what could have been the reason of the bandits to break into a harmless home for the less privileged and had it destroyed.

Efforts by our correspondent to reach the Divisional Police Officer of Issele-Uku to get the situation report proved abortive.

Meanwhile, we were able to get the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya who promised to reach out to get the details and inform appropriate departments of the Command to take action.


Already, as confirmed by the Issele-Uku Development Union’s President, Mr. Ugeh Ofordile, meetings are ongoing in the town to unravel the cause of attack on the Orphanage and then take appropriate actions.

Issele-Uku, the administrative headquarters of Aniocha North LGA is a peaceful, hospitable and accommodating community. However, activities of recent times, mostly orchestrated by Fulani herdsmen and some cult groups have become worrisome.

Some opinions sampled via telephone conversations had proffered the need to strengthen the security arrangement of the community in order to check the activities of some sinister motive cult groups and marauding Fulani herders within and around the community.
