Anambra State Government has began the registration of Fulani herdsmen, aimed at checking the farmers-herdsmen conflict in the state.
The Chairman of Anambra State Cattle Menace Control Committee, Igwe Peter Eze-Amama , while speaking to newsmen on the commencement of the registration said the registration point was at Amansea in Awka North council area.
Eze-Amama said the process will help in an easy identification whenever there is a crisis.
He said, “The enumeration will assist the cattle menace control committee to fish out the bad eggs from the Fulani herdsmen in Anambra state.”
Alhaji Gidado Siddiki, South-East chairman of Miyetti Allah hailed the initiative and also urged herdsmen to respect their host communities as erring individuals will be punished accordingly.
