Despite chasing Fulani herdsmen from the Southeast the region still experiences killing and violence.
This is according to the spokesperson of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Saleh Alhassan.
Speaking to PUNCH on Tuesday, Alhassan stated that the continued killing in the southeast shows that Fulani Herdsmen were not behind insecurity in the region.
According to him, cows sold in the southeast belongs to Igbos as there was no more open grazing in the region.
“That nonsense you see in the South-East is a manifestation of frustration… They will continue burning their cities, killing themselves,” he said.
“Now that the herders are not there, they are still killing themselves. Sometimes they wear Fulani attires to continue to commit heinous crimes.
“Now that the herders are not there, are they having peace in the East?”
Giving reasons why herdsmen left the region, the Miyetti Allah spokesperson stated that IPOB’s constant sit-at-home order played a major role.
“Those Biafrans are shooting and killing their animals. Those making noise in the media are cattle traders. They will not go anywhere. The cows you see there now belong to the Igbo,” he stated.
Naija News reports that the southeast has been engulfed in killings and violence which has mostly been blamed on the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
