A socio-cultural group, Igboayaka O. Igboayaka-led Ohanaeze Youth Council (OYC) has declared supporters of open grazing law enemies of the people.
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government recently issued a directive for the review of 368 grazing reserves in 25 States in Nigeria.
OYC in a statement on Tuesday, warned lawmakers from South East who are plotting to execute open grazing law to either jettison the idea or face the wrath of angry Igbo youths from their various Constituents.
The group urge the lawmakers to urgently pass the anti-open grazing bill into law not to give vent to the allegations of financial inducement by proponents of grazing reserve routes.
OYC partly stated, “There will be an All- Igbo Youth Match to the family house of the house of assembly members to demonstrate a civil disobedience from the people. This movement will be more heavy than the Aba Women mass resistance (riot) that made Britain standstill.
“The House of Assembly members in South East should watch their actions and inactions and as well know that they are commonly living with the people in various communities in Igboland without any form of immunity or sophisticated security detail like the governors, therefore any attempt to take bribe and jettison the anti-open grazing Bill will be a foolhardy that endangers not only their lives but that of family members as well as Neighbors in South-East.
“South-East has become the land of blood spillage by incessant attacks of Fulani herdsmen that Enugu and Ebonyi states had most victims of Fulani attacks and our farm lands has been deserted that famine will soon hit southeast, therefore those behind all attempts to collect five billion Naira from Miyetti Allah Cattle Rearers to jeopardize southeast security should know that “Ukwu na a ga wamwam, anya na a ga zamzam na ahu ya.”
