Herdsmen attack: ASETU calls for anti-open grazing law

Following the incessant destructive activities of herdsmen to the rural farmers in Igbo land, the leadership of the association of South East Town Unions, ASETU, has renewed its call on the South East governors to cause their Houses of Assembly to urgently enact anti-open grazing laws, saying that their rural farmers are no longer safe in their farms.

According to ASETU, the menace of the herdsmen has inflicted much hardship on the rural farmers who no longer go to their farms for fear of being attacked by the herdsmen.

Besides, ASETU has raised fear that the situation would likely lead to famine in their communities as the farmers have abandoned their farms out of fear for their lives, saying that if nothing urgent is done, their situation would get worse.
