The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has banned the rearing and consumption of cows in the South-East region.
Speaking in a statement on Saturday, October 9, IPOB Head of Directorate of State (DOS), Mazi Chika Edoziem, said the ban would take complete effect in six months.
He added that only local breed would henceforth “be consumed and used for all ceremonies in Biafraland.”
According to him, “From that date, no more Fulani cows shall be allowed into Biafraland for any reason, not for burials, title taking, weddings, etc.”
He said the ban followed constant attcks on their people by suspected Fulani herdsmen, resulting in klling, rping of their women and other forms of assults.
