Chairman of the Southeast Governors Forum, David Umahi has given a lifting response to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) regarding the order to enforce anti-grazing law.

Nnamdi Kanu had at the weekend issued a seven-day ultimatum to southeast governor to implement the 1969 Anti Grazing Law against marauding killers across Southern region.

Kanu threatened to enforce the law through Eastern Security Network operatives if the leaders fail within the expected date.

Commending Southwest governors for their move to ban Herdsmen from rearing cows openly across the region, Kanu urged South-East governors to emulate their counterparts.

In his words: “The Governors of the southeast had banned open grazing and movement of cows by foot into South East, in each of States of the South East, we are managing ourselves well, what we discuss with the herdsmen is the system in place for a long time,” he said.

He also added that the leaders in the Southeast have been called on to always speak on the security of residents and unity of Nigeria.
