Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has handed out a fourteen (14) day ultimatum to governors in the southeast over open grazing in the region.

Nnamdi Kanu, recounting the success achieved by the South West counterparts in banning open grazing within their states requested governors from the East emulate the same.

Kanu humbly and submissively called on the governors to act as a matter of urgency to ban all manner of open grazing in the region in compliance with the 1969 statutory law of Nigeria.

Describing open grazing as provocative and primitive practice largely carried out by the Fulani herdsmen, the Commander of Eastern Security Network, Kanu commended ‘Yoruba governors’ for the ban, maintained it must be “reciprocated and consolidated by a similar pronouncement in the East”.

He, however, warned that ESN would step into the breach to commence enforcement of the 1969 Anti-Grazing law across southeast states if the governors fail to respond within fourteen days.

“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 a prior warning”

Meanwhile, Kanu had appealed to his supporters and the general public to always remember the sacrifice ESN members are paying.

He noted that men and women of the security body are in the forest and bushes to ensure ancestral lands are not taken by ‘murderous Fulani terrorists from across the Sahel’.

“We are slowly but surely transforming our forests into impregnable fortresses in order to make Biafraland a safer place for all. Remember their sacrifices and honour them”
