The Senator representing Abia-South Senatorial District, Enyinnanya Abaribe has urged the Nigerian government to recognize the section of Armed parading Fulani Herdsmen terrorist group.

Abaribe made the call during an interactive chat with Channels Television, said the call is important to help curb the rise of insecurity in Nigeria.

The fondly called ‘outspoken senator’, remarked while reacting to issues affecting agitators under the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Expressing worries that the protesters, whom he described ‘peaceful’, were agitating within their rights as enshrined by international laws, Abaribe said proscribing IPOB and leaving arm-carrying herdsmen walk freely is wrong.

He said this indicates that the people of South East, who had suffered three years of Civil war, are still seen as enemies to the government.

He, however, condemned the federal government’s position on proscription of IPOB to had allowed marauding herders with AK42, move freely.

He also noted that the attitude of lobbying leaders from the region for Presidential position is an insult.
