I Can't Stand Slaughter Of 76 People Killed By Herdsmen In Benue - Gov. Umahi by owoicho13(m): 11:33am On Mar 14
Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi state yesterday barred Fulani herdsmen from entering Enyanwu Igwe village, Igbeagu community in Izzi local government area of the state where the last incident of Herdsmen/farmers clash took place pending the conclusion of investigation into the incident by the state government.

The Governor stated this during an enlarged security meeting at the government House, Abakaliki Both the Governor and the National Chairman of Myetti Allah, Alhaji Bello Bodejo warned that the incessant killings by herdsmen might spark-off national war if not properly addressed even as they called for caution in handling the herdsmen menace in the state.

The last incident left four persons dead with two still in critical conditions. Leaders of cattle herders in south east and south south states, stakeholders of the troubled community as well as all the security chiefs in the state were in attendance during the enlarged security meeting.

Addressing the gathering, Umahi who described the killings in Enyanwu Igwe village as unprovoked killings, ordered herdsmen around the area to leave the place until he calm the embittered villagers down to avoid reprisal attack. ”It is unprovoked killings, life is so sacred.

You can’t kill people as if they are fowls. Izzi people are warriors, I physically held them not to go for retaliation. The herdsmen there in Izzi have to leave the place for now until I can calm everybody down. The way we are going, it can provoke national war and it will not help anybody. If there is reprisal attack, I will hold all the leaders squarely responsible, I will charge all of you for any reprisal attack. ”The lives of every Ebonyian is very dear to me.

God forbid, I can’t withstand where 76 people were killed like in Benue, I can’t withstand it. Some people may be fighting to die but we fight to live, lets use wisdom and handle the matter. “This is a National problem; we don’t want our people to continue killed. We must use wisdom to handle this problem. It is very easy to say I want all the herdsmen to leave Ebonyi but there are lots of implication”, he said.

He regretted that agreement reached between the state and herdsmen in the area for peaceful co-existence have been destroyed. “We banned under aged herders, we banned night grazing in the state. We have no grazing routes in Ebonyi which means that nobody has the right to carry cattle by route to Ebonyi state and we agreed on that.

We also agreed with the Herdsmen that the first offender must be prosecuted. We also said that no farmer should go to farm with gun and no herdsmen should rear cattle with gun or matchete, it is stick. We must abide by these rules”. While addressing Umahi, National Chairman of Myetti Allah, Bello Bodejo corroborated with the Governor that incident killings in the country can cause chaos in the country.

He said the state has been very accommodative to the herdsmen, warning that it should not be abused. “Ebonyi state is very peaceful and it is accommodating to our members. It has been so accommodating to our members even more than some Northern states of the federation and we condemn these killings in this state .

There are minors and migrants who are causing these lots of problems. There are also criminals moving as cattle herders who are causing these havocs. The Chairman of Myetti Allah of various states in the south east and south are all here and we are not happy with what happened, we condemn these killings in totality.

“Nigeria is confronted with so many security challenges and one of them is the unfortunate farmer/herder conflict. If this conflict is not resolved, it has the potential of throwing this country into unnecessary chaos”, he said. Meanwhile, the National Chairman and the leaders of the herders across south east and south south will meet with the herdsmen in the state for two days over the crisis.

So how is he supposed to use the 3 billion naira to buy security when the Buhari govt won't release police or military forces to go after killer herdsmen and yet wontvallow the governors arm local vigilantes to do the job ...Money is not a solution but only gives you options and in this case the Buhari govt blocks all the option the 3 billion can buy

The Fulani herdsmen terrorists need to be hunted down wherever they exist in this country.

Anyone who wants to rear cattle should do so on his own property acquired for ranching.

The mere identification as a Fulani herdsman should attract a lengthy prison term on just that account alone.

This arrant nonsense started the very day Umahi of a Gov ordered the traditional rulers to map out grazing areas (Colonies) in their various Localities for the Fulani terrorists to graze their cattle. The day the terrorists killed villagers at Ivo LGA, I told the governor's media stooge, Francis Nweze that it was a rehearsal.

Can you stand 75?

Rather than join hands with Ortom to put pressure on the FG to act on the herdsmen menace, this man joined the inactive FG on a fruitless peace move that was aimed at compelling Ortom to review the anti grazing law.

Now the monster is at his backyard and he is talking tough.
Never make light of other people's suffering because you are not in their shoes to know how it feels.

What about the slaughter going on in the state you are governing? Why are these guys making cowardice, wickedness and satanism seem palatable? At this stage, a governor's word is Bullshi't. One singular act can convey a thousand impression.

I'm really trying to understand something, is it that as a governor you have no measure of control over any of the nations security outfits stationed in your state, to be be able to deploy when need arises? Cause if not, then been a Nigerian governor has got to be one of the most f**ked up position ever.

Since this issue started I have not heard any governor from the South South, South East, South West and Middle Belt calling for cattle tax?
