We have a right to graze our cattle in any part of Nigeria – Fulani herdsmen

01 May 2016, 06:50

Abuja – Fulani herdsmen from Nigeria’s different parts have rubbished ultimatums given by various groups to vacate the southern part of the country. 

The herdsmen, who in the past week caused havoc in various parts of the nation, said nobody could stop them from grazing their cattle in any part of the country.

According to Punch, the herdsmen said this under the auspices of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association.

At least over 20 people were killed in Enugu on Monday.

They were accused of killing, raping and robbing members of their host communities.

“Why would they ask them not to go to the southern part of the country? It is their constitutional right to move freely as guaranteed by the laws of the land,” the chairperson, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Plateau State, Nuru Abdullahi, was quoted as saying.   

Reports on Saturday indicated that Igbo youths under the aegis of Ohaneze Youth Council (OYC) had given the herdsmen at least three days to leave Igbo land or they would be forced out.

The youths gave the herdsmen until Monday to vacate the all Igbo land, saying “enough is enough”.

In a communique, the youths said the herdsmen “are off-shoots of Boko Haram and must not be allowed any breeding ground in Igbo land. Any herdsman who fails to quit South East by Monday will have himself to blame”.

The youths vowed “never again” to “fold their arms and watch our people being massacred by blood-sucking terrorists under the guise of herdsmen. Urgent times need drastic measure”.
