An Igbo interest group, Voice from the East, VEAST, has called on the Federal Government, FG, to on June 21 declare herdsmen and the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore as terrorists.
This was made known in a release signed by the convener, VEAST, Comrade Kindness Jonah. Following a suit filed by a Makurdi-based lawyer, Matthew Nyiutsa before the court.
This call came as a result if the incessant and gruesome killings as well as destruction of lives and properties committed by the herdsmen and the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore who breed the animals.
The group maintained that for Nigeria to be one united and indivisible country, armed herdsmen should be outlawed.
“We, the VEAST believe that for Nigeria to be truly one, the touchy issue of outlandish killings of innocent Nigerians by bloodsucking herdsmen must be decisively addressed,” the group said.
