Ohanaeze Ndigbo, a socio-political group, has urged the federal government to call Miyetti Allah to order following the cattle-rearers group's recent statement on the security of the southeast.
It would be recalled that the Fulani cattle rearers called on the government to amend the constitution in a way that will hand them the control of southeast security.
Speaking on the heels of atrocities allegedly committed by its members, Miyetti Allah submitted that taking the control of the security will enable it to fish out the bad eggs among its members.
Ohanaeze has, however, described the statement as provocative, saying such remark is capable of endangering the peaceful co-existence among Nigerians.
Arthur Obiora, leader of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Wing, said the effrontery of Miyetti is mischievous and the group's statement is a slap on the face of what the southeast people can do.
Abiora called on President Muhammadu Buhari to denounce the call by the Miyetti Allah to prove its non-complicity in the demand which could set the country apart.
He also noted that while the county’s constitution assured free movement and residence anywhere but it does not permit killings and intimidation by any group.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that despite the clamour for the shifting of power to the southeastern part of the county in 2023, the president-general of the apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, John Nwodo, has said that the region does not need presidency.
Speaking on Channels TV on Monday, October 7, the Igbo leader said that the people of the southeast should be allowed to develop at their own pace.
Nwodo noted that he did not believe in power-sharing formula as being canvassed by many leaders from the south.
