Some Nigerian top leaders in the southeast who are members of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo have accused state governors in the region of lying about the ban on open grazing.
The Igbo leaders insisted that the governors in the geopolitical zone are have not implement the law and have no interest in doing so.
The Igbo leaders alleged that the southeast governors who are only into lip-service have abandoned their people in times of great need. Honourable Abia Onyike, the spokesman of the Alaigbo Development Foundation (ADF), speaking bitterly on this claimed that the governors set up Ebubeagu, a local security outfit, just to foster their political interest.
“As against the claims in some quarters, there is no anti-open grazing law in any state in the south-east yet. “This is painful, given that our people have made it abundantly clear that the enactment of the law will be the first most effective step in curtailing the murderous activities of the armed herdsmen in our land.”
Recall that Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state said he would make it illegal for anyone to openly graze cattle in the state. This was disclosure on Wednesday, June 16, at the inauguration of the Isaiah Odoli/Omerelu Streets in New GRA Phase 1 in Obio-Akpor local government area.
The Governor promised to give the ban on open grazing in the state a legal backing by sending the required bill to the House of Assembly.
