BREAKING: IPOB Bans Fulani Herdsmen Cows In South-East
The outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has placed a ban on cows reared by Fulani herdsmen for any social event in the Southeast.
Ezenwoko’s Blog reports that this was made known in a New Year address by its Head of Directorate Mazi Chika Edoziem through its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful.
According to the proscribed pro-Biafra group, the ban on Fulani cows would take effect from April, 2022.
IPOB stated that only native cows would be allowed in the region for such events, urging traditional rulers, the clergy and town unions to ensure the message reaches the grassroots.
“The ban placed on Fulani cows will take effect in April 2022.
“Effective that month, Fulani cows will not be used for any social or ceremonial events and festival in Biafraland.
“Our native cows will be used instead for these events.
“Traditional custodians of our culture, the clergy and town unions must ensure that this message gets to the grassroots,” the group said.
Ezenwoko’s Blog reports that IPOB had accused Fulanis of Killing people in the southeast.
The proscribed group had also created the Eastern Security Network, ESN, to allegedly tackle and stop such killings.
But since the creation of the militia group on the region, Insecurity has been on the increase with the President Muhammadu Buhari government accusing the group of carrying out attacks.
