Northern Cattle Traders React To IPOB’s Ban On Cows




A group of Northern Traders in Cattle has condemned the ban on cows reared by Fulani herdsmen for any social event in the South East as from April 2022.

Naija News reports that the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Head of Directorate, Chika Edoziem, had announced the ban in a statement by the group’s spokesman, Emma Powerful.

Reacting to the ban, the Northern traders said its members would boycott South-Eastern markets, adding that they were not bothered by the IPOB ban.

Chairman of the Amalgamation of Northern Traders in Cattle, Grains and Vegetables, Muhammad Tahir, made this known on Tuesday while speaking to reporters.

He stated that IPOB cannot sustain the ban as the South East residents would soon revolt due to scarcity of beef and other foodstuffs which only the North can supply.

He said, “For us, we would always support the indivisibility of Nigeria; but if IPOB wants to secede, then so be it.

“Bilateral trade between us and them is all about wealth creation for the two regions; the cattle we take to them is food and not poison.

“Therefore, if someone rejects your benevolent supply of food to their region, then you stop; because you must not feed them.

“After all, it is a mere unsustainable propaganda, which we’ve been hearing over the years.
