Igbo group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has condemned the government over its failure to address the rising spate of attacks carried out by Fulani herdsmen in the country.

The comment was made by the group’s Secretary General, Dr Joe Nwaorgu following an attack in Enugu which reportedly left 40 people dead.

“We are very sad and very disappointed that all over the country, not just the South-East, these killings by Fulani herdsmen have continued unabated and nothing concrete is being done by the Federal Government,” he said according to Vanguard.

“The first act of governance is protection of lives and property. It is complete failure of governance. There has been no response from the Federal Government and this is allowing the Fulani herdsmen to continue the killing spree.

“Everybody is worried about the poor attitude of the Federal Government to this massacre across the country. Boko Haram is operating in the North-East and Fulani herdsmen are killing people all over the country. It is not the herdsmen that should be held responsible, but owners of the cattle.

“The herdsmen are under the instruction of highly-placed Fulani people who own the cattle. They are heavily armed. How many cows can the herdsmen buy? Federal Government should stop this nonsense before it causes a catastrophe,” he added.

The herdsmen recently also killed hundreds of people during a February 2016 attack in Agatu, Benue State.
