Cattle market in our community, a curse — Monarch

ENUGU—THE traditional ruler of Amaekwu Lokpanta in Umunneochi Local Government Area of Abia State, hosts to the cattle market on Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressroad, near Enugu/Abia boundary, Eze Thomas Obike, has lamented the destructive activities of rampaging herdsmen and their cows in their community.

Eze Obike said his people now live in perpetual fear on account of the destructive activities of herdsmen and their cattle.

The monarch, who spoke when he received Senator Mao Ohuabunwa in his palace on the occasion of the commissioning of a primary health centre attracted by the senator, said the market is now a curse rather than a blessing.

According to him, the cows have destroyed their schools, courts, crops and even the Police post, forcing officers to abandon the post and relocate to Isuochi.

In other words, the police abandoned the people of the community to the mercy of armed herdsmen, and fled.
Therefore the community is on its own, and must do whatever it can to protect itself.

I am now beginning to agree with those who call for a TOTAL boycott of Fulani cows in Eastern Nigeria.
If nobody buys these cows, I doubt that these killer herdsmen will stay, and even if they stay they would not be funded by the same people they currently harass and kill.
Maybe then, their true sponsors will come out openly.
And maybe then, their true motives will emerge as well, because I really doubt that these people are there to sell cows.
Their real motives need to be known so that effective measures would be adopted to drive them out completely.
