Operatives of the Eastern Security Network over the Easter holidays carried out an attack on roaming herdsmen in the Enugu forests. In a video footage of an ambush on the herdsmen, several of the operatives bearing automatic rifles, track the herders through the bushes and open fire on the armed herdsmen and their cattle.

Several attacks by armed herdsmen on communities, have lead to scores of deaths in neighboring Benue state in recent weeks.
