Insecurity: Abia leaders back Southern Govs, laud Ikpeazu on anti-open grazing law



Stakeholders and leaders of thought from Abia North Senatorial District of Abia State have thrown their weight behind the ban on open grazing and the call for national dialogue by the southern governors.

They berated the Federal Government for failing to tackle the activities of armed Fulani herdsmen terrorizing the people of the area.

In a communique issued against the backdrop of rising insecurity in the state and the nation at large, which was made available to DAILY POST in Umuahia, the state capital, on Thursday, the people of the zone, lamented that the Federal Government by its inactions has failed to promote ranching which they opined, is the acceptable method of cattle rearing.

They posited that establishment of ranches would naturally annihilate the hydra-headed menace of open grazing.

DAILY POST recalls that the governors, under the aegis of the Southern Nigeria Governors Forum (SNGF), had condemned and banned open grazing of animals and movement of cattle from the northern part of the country to the south.
