Abia Pays N100K To Herdsmen For Every Cow Killed In Clash With Farmers - Ikpeazu by kahal29: 10:55am On Feb 03
Okezie Ikpeazu, governor of Abia, says the state government pays herders N100,000 for each cow killed as a result of clashes between them and farmers.

The state government on Tuesday accused herders of kidnapping citizens of the state and of destroying farmlands with cows grazing openly.

Despite banning open grazing in June 2018, herdsmen have reportedly continued to violate the law in the state.

Speaking on Wednesday on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, Ikpeazu said the same sum is also paid to farmers whose farmland is destroyed by stray cows.

The governor said the initiative is meant to gain the trust of the people and to prevent them from taking the law into their own hands.

Asked what the state government is doing to enforce the law against open grazing, Ikpeazu said: ”We have a strong mechanism with which we deal with the normal and usual cattle herders. We have what we call farmer/herder conflict resolution committee from the state where the CP is chairman to the local governments where the executive chairmen of various local governments chair, and members of that committee include the Miyetti Allah, the DSS and DPO of the various local governments up until the state. And we pay compensation of about N100,000 for any cow that is killed on account of a misunderstanding between the farmers and the herders and pay the same amount for farmland verified to have been trampled on or destroyed by stray cows.

“We have used that to make sure that at least, we give some succor and buffer so that when people disagree, they can wait for that committee to look into the matter instead of taking laws into their own hands. But that is not to say that we have not recorded a spike in the activities of these criminal elements that come in kidnap, rape and kill farmers. More often than not, some of these criminal elements don’t even have a cow. We are targeting those people and we are going to punish them.”

Ikpeazu said the best way to solve the issue of farmer/herder crisis is for the federal government to tackle the root cause of the problem.

“Nigeria is not diagnosing the problem properly. The problems we face in this country are existential,” he said.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) on Tuesday said the Eastern Security Network (ESN), its security arm, will commence the implementation of the anti-grazing law in the south-east.

IPOB had issued a 14-day ultimatum to south-east governors to enforce the anti-grazing law.

Now, I see why Alex Otti used his name to campaign: Ikpeazu, meaning backyard verdict.


This is an epitome of such baseless backyard verdict.

Really?? And how much did Ikpeazu pay the farmers whose crops/farms the cows destroyed Ikpeazu is the real definition of Fulani slave. What does Mazi Kanu have to say about what is happening in his backyard?

Even Obiano does the same thing.

Not only in Abia but also Anambra, Imo, Ebonyi State Government also regularly pay fulani herdsmen huge sums of money for fear of reprisals. I told some ibo kids few weeks ago but they were doubting.
SE Governors make a budgetary provision to pay off fulani herdsmen periodically. fulani have economically enslaved the southeast and the Governors are the enablers. The template of Elrufai paying off fulani herdsmen with Kaduna state treasury has been entrenched in the SE.
The more you empower them financially, the more you empower them with weapons to carry on the onslaughts. The spineless governors would never empower ESN or local vigilantes to provide adequate security to the villagers against the marauding herdsmen. What right do these killer herdsmen have to tresspass & destroy people's farmlands in the first place?


kiss the truth!

Just imagine this lubbish. If Nnamdi Kanu was a serious 'freedom fighter' , Abia state (his home state) ought to have been liberated from the misrule of a Fulani asskiser/slave like Ikpeazu by now. But instead, he is chasing shadows and abusing others. Smh.
