Infiltration of herders across Nigeria brought violence – Igbo leader, Onyebueke

The current insecurity and violence perpetrated in the country have been attributed to the infiltration of herdsmen in all nooks and crannies of the country Nigeria.

A former President of the Igbo Community in Calabar, Fidelis Obi Onyebueke told DAILY POST that there would not be any violence in Nigeria if there were no herdsmen.

“If there were no herdsmen harassing people, there wouldn’t have been any violence, burning of police stations, killing and destruction of properties in the country.

“When the herdsmen came up with the style of carrying AK47 rifles and killing people, starting from Benue it escalated the issue of violence in the country.

“If it was properly managed as it was done during the time of Obasanjo, even Jonathan we wouldn’t have had these issues, there were herdsmen during Obasanjo regime, they never lost control as they are doing now during in Buhari’s tenure.

“I can’t understand, I do hope that the federal government will sit up otherwise what happened in the South East may lead to the break down of law and order and those boys they are afraid of will be armed.

“If the society is lawless there will be arms and when there are arms there will be a break down of law and order, that is my fear, The Southwest is clamouring for Oduduwa Republic, South East and the IPOB are clamouring for the Biafra Republic” he pointed out

Chief Onyebueke who is the Grand Patron of Ohanaeze Ndigbo in Cross River State and a lawyer by profession said, “To me, I can’t understand, that federal government, with all its power cannot manage security, its pains me

“Let me tell you, 2015, I was one of those in Cross River State that stuck my neck for Buhari bearing in mind his military background. I felt out with many Igbos but I said, a man with a military background will do better than Jonathan and he started very well but suddenly to my own mind was hijacked by few people” he regretted
