The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has banned the rearing and consumption of cows in South-East States

The Group said, the ban followed constant attacks on the people of the South-East by “suspected Fulani herdsmen, resulting in killing, raping of women and other forms of assaults.”

IPOB, in a statement issued by the Head, Directorate of State (DOS), Mazi Chika Edoziem, in Awka, Anambra State, said the ban would take complete effect in six months time.

“8th April 2022 is the date. From that date, no more Fulani cow shall be allowed into Biafraland for any reason, not for burials, title taking, weddings etc.”, it said.

The Group said, only local breed would henceforth “be consumed and used for all ceremonies in Biafraland.”

“Only Efi Igbo (local cow) shall be consumed and used for all ceremonies in Biafraland”, the statement added.
