Herdsmen: We Pay Compensation Of N100,000 For Any Cow Killed On Account Of A Misunderstanding – Ikpeazu


The Abia state governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu  has disclosed that the State pays N100,00 as compensation to herdsmen whose cows are killed during farmers-herders misunderstandings.

He said the same compensations also go to farmers whose farms are destroyed by the herders.

Governor Ikpeazu stated this  on Channels Television’s Sunrise daily , when he appeared as a guest.

“We pay compensation of N100,000 for any cow that is killed on account of a misunderstanding between the farmers and the herders and pay the same amount for farmlands destroyed by strayed cows,” Governor Ikpeazu said.

Recall that Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, had recently shared the news of Eastern Security Network,  operatives burning houses and cows allegedly belonging to the Fulani herdsmen. They also killed some cows.

“Video of men at work last night across all the towns and villages of the old Bende Division, especially Isiukwuato.”

“ESN has commenced the combing of parts of Isiukwuato forests last night and engagement with the enemy is ongoing and will continue until they no longer present a threat to our communities along that axis,” Kanu said on the video shared on his Facebook page.
