Fulani herdsmen not planning to attack people of Anambra State – Obiano’s aide

The Special Adviser to Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, on Security Prevention and Operation, Chief Chikodi Anarah, has dismissed claim of possible attack by Fulani herdsmen on the people of the state.
Addressing journalists in the state, Anarah said the state government had already taken proactive measures aimed at averting any eventual attack by constituting “cattle menace committee.”

He, however, urged residents to remain calm and go about their lawful activities without fears as both government and the committee were fully in charge.



He advised them to be vigilant and report suspecting movements to the nearest police formation in their area.

According to Anarah, “You know that before now, Governor Willie Obiano had set up ‘cattle menace committee’ headed by the police commissioner which has continued to yield positive results in the past.

“The committee is made up of seven traditional rulers and President Generals of town unions that upon inauguration, reached an agreement with the Fulani herdsmen and the host communities on the amount that would be paid as compensation for lives, property and live stocks on both sides.

“This arrangement has been working till date and against this backdrop, we do not forsee any attack on Anambra State by the herdsmen.”
