He made the appeal at the village hall of Ndiokereke Abam in Arochukwu Local Government Area of Abia State, following the unfortunate and unanticipated attack by the herdsmen on some indigenes at a rice farm.
Mr. Nkole who ran back to the village when the news got to him, hinted that he was on a fact finding mission to see things for himself and to ascertain the extent of damage as well as to calm down the tension in order to proffer a solution.

The Federal lawmaker in company of the Security Adviser to Abia State Governor, Retired Captain Awa Agwu visited some of the victims at the health centre where they are receiving treatment for various degrees of machete cut inflicted on them during the attack.

Nkole paid their hospital bills and urged the officer in charge at the centre to ensure the victims get all the necessary medicare. Nkole also visited Mrs Jonah from Ndi Agwu Abam and her little daughter that had 3rd degree burns at the same hospital. It could be recalled that Hon.
