Frustrate Fulani Herdsmen From South-east By Refusing To Buy Their Cows – Can Youths
BEVERLY HILLS, April 29, (THEWILL) – The youth wing of the South-east chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has tasked all Igbos to stop buying cows from the Fulani herdsmen as a source of meat, adding that Ndigbo should rather patronize other sources of meat to frustrate the business of rampaging Fulani herdsmen.
In a statement jointly signed on Friday by its Chairman, Rev. Fr. Clement Okonkwo, and Ogechukwu Nnamene on behalf of the executives, CAN South-east Youth Wing condemned the killing of 46 Nimbo natives in Uzo Uwani LGA of Enugu state and reasoned that Fulani herdsmen will be frustrated out of the geopolitical zone when Ndigbo avoid buying the beef their cattle has to offer.
The statement reads in part, “Igbos should stop buying Cow from the Fulani herdsmen as a source of meat, adding that Ndigbo should rise to the occasion and patronize other sources of meat to frustrate their business and force them out of Igboland.
“Traditional rulers, community leaders in the South-east should as a matter of urgency, constitute and arm Vigilante groups in their villages and resist any attempt by the Fulani herdsmen to occupy their farmlands.”
