Anambra community denies killing 4 herdsmen, 138 cattle

The people of Anaku community in Ayamelum Local Government Area of Anambra State have described as absolute falsehood, a story in a national daily that four members of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) died during a clash with the community.

President -General of Anaku Progressive Union, Mr. Peter Onuorah, in a statement made available to Daily Sun yesterday, said,  there was no clash between farmers in the community and Fulani herdsmen; and as such, there could not have been any killing.

A media report had quoted the Chairman of MACBAN in southeast, Alhaji Giddado Siddiki, as claiming that four members of the association were killed and 138 cows missing in a clash with Anaku and Ifite-Ogwari communities.

Mr. Onuorah who refuted the report, however, accused Fulani herdsmen of flouting the peace initiative of the state government instituted by governor, Willie Obiano.

Onuorah alleged that with what was on the ground, MACBAN was plotting to attack Anaku community.

He said: “Contrary to that story, towards January ending, the Fulani and Ifite-Ogwari farmers had problems and Governor Willie Obiano, called a meeting with the Igwe Ifite-Ogwari, A.I. Ofuebe, the Speaker of Anambra State House of Assembly, Uche Okafor; Alhaji Giddado Siddiki,and his Fulani team where the problem was resolved.

“Alhaji Giddado Siddiki is very much aware of the position of the Anambra State Cattle Menace Committee set up by the government and directed every community set up a joint committee of the herders and the farmers to oversee the cordial relationship between the two parties.

“His statement is, therefore, tantamount to giving a dog a bad name to hang it going by the antics and modus operandi of the Fulani. If the Fulani are planning to attack Anaku community, they should come straight and say so rather than fabricating falsehood to draw unnecessary sympathy from their Fulani brothers and the Federal Government.

“Alhaji Giddado Siddiki, should therefore, leave Anaku community and concentrate his energy towards setting up the joint committee as directed by the governor.

Well, clearly someone from far NORTH cannot be "clashing" with someone in the heart of South East.

A Fulani is from FAR NORTH, while this area is IGBOLAND in SOUTH Eastern Nigeria.

But what people from that area should keep in mind is that this world is ruled by violence and they would all die if they don't take SERIOUS steps to secure their land from invaders.

Ayamelum is perhaps the richest agricultural lands in Anambra state. That is where all the yams and rice are being produced in the state. But these invaders from the desert want to take the land, but they will attract REAL war if they don't go back to where they came from.

I only blame the governor for his so called "agreement" with these invaders.

Pray, tell me, can a sane person strike a deal with a dangerous serpent that entered his house?
Can a sane person sleep with both eyes closed when a dangerous serpent is inside his house?

Ndi a na awi nnukwu ara.  But the governor will bear the responsibility if anyone is killed by these invaders.

Umu Anambra, the rest is up to you.
