Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has asked the Eastern Governors to emulate the recent actions taken by the South-West leaders in banning open grazing in the region.
Kanu, who lauded the Yoruba leaders for taking such step, adviced the Eastern Governors to do likewise within 14 days. He warned that failure of compliance would leave no option than involving the Eastern Security Network, ESN, to (breach to commence the enforcement of this 1969 Anti-Grazing Law across the entire region.
He said, “We wish to humbly and most submissively call upon all the governors of the East, to as a matter of urgency, ban all manner of open grazing in the region in compliance with the 1969 statutory law of #Nigeria that banned such provocative and primitive practice by Fulani herdsmen.
The bold step taken by Yoruba governors in banning open grazing in their region is commendable and as such MUST be reciprocated and consolidated by a similar pronouncement in the East.
“If after 14 days there is no firm and decisive action by Eastern governors to ban open grazing in our land, #ESN will step into the breach to commence the enforcement of this 1969 Anti-Grazing Law across the entire region. Don’t say you were not informed or given prior warning.”
Recall, that governors of the South-West who met in Ondo State capital, Akure, on Monday banned all forms of open grazing in the region.
The decision was taken during the meeting which was held with the leadership of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria as well as security chiefs.
