The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has revealed that the Igbo people alone in Biafra land spent more than N3tn every year on cows. This is as IPOB stated that from April 27, 2022, it will start enforcing its ban on Fulani cows outside ranching places. The Media and Publicity Secretary, IPOB, Emma Powerful, stated in a statement on Monday.
It added that the above measures became necessary to stop the senseless and wanton killings in the South-East by Fulani jihadists masquerading as herdsmen. Powerful said: “We want to stop the incessant invasion of our communities and raping of our mothers and sisters by Fulani herdsmen. Enough is enough!
“Our action is not targeted against any tribe. We are only taking this measure as a necessity for self preservation. Igbo people alone in Biafra land spend more than N3tn every year on cows. We, therefore, want to stop using our money to finance the genocide attacks on our people by the Fulani herdsmen. Let them keep their cows so that we may have our lives.
“We want our people to breed native cows in our land and also put them in a ranch. We won’t tolerate the wandering of cattle again in our land.”
