Hundreds of women in Elele-Uzairue, Etsako West Local Government Area, Edo, on Saturday staged a peaceful protest on Auchi-Okene-Highway, following the killing of a middle-aged woman by suspected herdsmen.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the protesters want all herdsmen to vacate their territory without further delay.

Women in their hundreds chanting songs, appealed to the government to find lasting solution to the activities of the herdsmen in the area.

NAN reports that one Magdalene Tunar, 39, was on Friday allegedly killed by armed men suspected to be herdsmen in Uluoke, near Auchi in Etsako West Local Government Area.

The victim was reported to have been shot dead while returning from the farm with her husband, Wilson Tunar and their two children.

Mr. Tunar, however, told NAN that the two armed men he suspected to be herdsmen had accosted them on their way from the farm.

“I usually park my car somewhere along the farm route because of the terrain, so we were moving towards where I parked when two men suddenly came out of the bush and pointed gun at us.
