Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has warned cattle herders in the state to desist from carrying dangerous weapons.
Obiano said he will not hesitate to invoke the full weight of the law on any cattle herder found carrying dangerous weapons.
The governor who addressed indigenes of the state during a reception organised in his country home, shortly after taking the chieftaincy title of Ebubedike Aguleri said on no account should a herdsman be found wielding an AK-47 rifle or any such weapon.
Obiano assured that he was not unaware of the havoc being caused by herdsmen in other states, but said he was working to ensure that such would not be witnessed in Anambra State.
He stated that his government had put in place measures that would guarantee peaceful and harmonious coexistence between herdsmen and host communities.
“Part of the measures taken to address the menace was sensitizing both the host communities and the Fulani herdsmen of the existing agreement that any party that destroys either the lives or property of the other will pay and also be prosecuted,” he said.
Obiano described the people of the Anambra State as peace-loving, who welcome visitors seeking wealth opportunities in the state, but warned that those who may want to take advantage of the people’s hospitality would be decisively dealt with.
He reassured farmers in remote communities of his administration’s commitment to put an end to the cattle invasion on their farmlands.
