A former Senator from Kaduna, Shehu Sani has kicked against the attack on Fulani herdsmen and their cattle in Abia State.
He added that the government should put mechanism in place that will not allow any group or individual to take the laws into their hands.
It will be recalled that Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, shared a video of the group’s Eastern Security Network, slaughtering cows belonging to herdsmen in Abia State.
In his Facebook page, Kanu saud: “Video of men at work last night across all the towns and villages of the old Bende Division, especially Isiukwuato.”
Condemning the issue, Senator Sani said that the federal government and Northern states should to set up a ranching program that would resettle herdsmen in the North.
Sani said: “The unprovoked attacks on the Fulani cattle rearers and their cattle in Abia State is unreservedly a condemnable act.
“No group of individuals should be allowed to take the laws into their hands for the sake of peace, unity and stability of the country.
“The Federal Government and the Northern states must step up action and commence the grazing or ranching programs that will resettle the herdsmen and their cattle in the north.”
