The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has asked governors in the Southern part of Nigeria to ban open grazing in the region..


He even issued a 14-day ultimatum and according to him, this will be in compliance with the 1969 statutory law of Nigeria.

He made these comments in a recent statement released by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful which reads;

“We wish to humbly and most submissively call upon all the governors of the East, to as a matter of urgency, ban all manner of open grazing in the region in compliance with the 1969 statutory law of #Nigeria that banned such provocative and primitive practice by Fulani herdsmen.

The bold step taken by Yoruba governors in banning open grazing in their region is commendable and as such MUST be reciprocated and consolidated by a similar pronouncement in the East.

If after 14 days there is no firm and decisive action by Eastern governors to ban open grazing in our land, #ESN will step into the breach to commence the enforcement of this 1969 Anti-Grazing Law across the entire region. Don’t say you were not informed or given prior warning.”
