Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi has stated that South-East Governors have placed a ban on open grazing and movement of cows by foot.

The Chairman of the Southeast Governors’ Forum disclosed this during the inauguration of the All Progressives Congress in Abakaliki on Monday February 1.

Umahi said;

“The governors of the southeast had banned not only open grazing, but we have also banned the movement of cows by foot into the southeast.

“In each of the five states of the southeast, we are managing ourselves very well. We have also stopped the movement of cows across communities.

“What we discussed in the southeast with the herdsmen, with the farmers is the method that has been in place for a long time before now.”

He who warned against making politics out of security issues in the country, and called on leaders of the region to create a framework that will secure the lives and properties of the people.

The Governor added;

“What our people must know is that security is not political, what is demanded of the leaders is to put up programs that favour the people and foster national unity.

“There is a new dimension that is taking place in the southeast which is very dangerous. It is when the communities use the name of IPOB, the video and upload it to the social media and say it is IPOB that is burning the houses of herdsmen.

“It is not IPOB, it is the communities that are doing this and this is very dangerous for the Igbo man. I am talking to us as leaders.”
