Insecurity: IPoB, Ohanaeze, Benue leaders tackle FG, Agric minister over violent herders

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPoB; apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo; and Benue tribal leaders, yesterday, lashed out at the federal government of Nigeria and the Minister of Agriculture, Alhaji Mohammed Abubakar, for their alleged defense of the violent activities of killer herdsmen who are mostly Fulani.

IPoB described as shameless, evil, and unethical the government’s action of not seeing anything bad in the violent activities of herders in Nigeria. Added that such action by the federal government is the reason the violent activities of the herders persist in the country.

Reacting to the government statement also, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo said it was very unfortunate that a highly placed federal government official spoke in this unconscionable manner, which was a way of encouraging the destructive herders to continue with the bad act.

In a related development, leaders of the three main tribes in Benue State on the platform of the Mzough U Tiv, MUT, Ochetoha K’Idoma, OKI, and Omi Ny’Igede, have urged the federal government to tag Miyetti Allah groups as terrorist organizations and ensure the arrest of their leaders who have been making provocative statements about the Benue killings.
