Ebonyi State Governor David Umahi has banned the activities and functioning of underage herders in the state.
He threatened that underage herders caught rearing cattle in the state would be arrested while arresting and prosecuting the Chief Herdsman in charge of such underage herder.

The meeting, chaired by Governor David Umahi, was also attended by heads of various state security agencies.“The various communities are by this meeting empowered to arrest and handover to the police any under-aged Herder within your community and the Chief Herder who is the custodian of such under-aged persons must be prosecuted by the police, in accordance with our law”, said the communique read by Deputy Governor, Kelechi Igwe.

The statement cautioned that Miyetti Allah members and their leadership must henceforth take responsibility for any destruction of farms, crops, property, including any assault on Ebonyi State by any Community; rape cases are not exempted from this.“They must produce within seven (7) days for arrest and prosecution the perpetrators of such bastardly acts from amongst their membership”.

In the same vein, the Communique cautioned that Community leaders and Traditional Rulers, Coordinators of Development Centres, Chairmen of Local Government Councils and Holders of Political Office must assume responsibility and produce herdsmen or cows attackers and killers for arrest and prosecution within seven ( 7 ) days when such occurs.

“Henceforth, herders must reside in the (Ebonyi) community where they graze their cattle”.
