‘Don’t Try It In Anambra’; Governor Obiano Warns Killer Herdsmen

January 9, 2018 12:11 pm

Willie Obiano, governor of Anambra state, has warned killer herdsmen against perpetrating any atrocity in the state. He gave the warning at a reception organised in his honour in the Aguleri area of the state, on Monday.

Obiano directed that herdsmen, wielding AK-47 rifles and other dangerous weapons should not be allowed in the state.

He assured the people that herdsmen/farmers crisis ravaging parts of the country would not spread to Anambra.

Obiano said his government had commenced latent actions to forestall any incident that may lead to mayhem or loss of lives.

“Part of the measures taken to address the menace was sensitising both the host communities and the herdsmen of the existing agreement,” he said.

“They were reminded that any party that destroys either the lives or property of the other will pay and also be prosecuted.”

Obiano, who described the people of the state as peace-loving, welcomed visitors seeking wealth opportunities.

The governor, however, warned those who may want to take advantage of the people’s hospitality to desist from acts capable of disturbing the peace of the state.

He reassured farmers in the affected communities of his administration’s commitment to put an end to the cattle invasion on their farmlands.
