Southern and Middle Belt leaders on Thursday in Enugu called for immediate declaration of
rampaging Fulani herdsmen as terrorists.
The call came at a summit tagged “Handshake
Across the Niger’, where demand for the
immediate restructuring of Nigeria’s current
political structure also dominated discourse. The event, co-organized by Igbo group, Nzuko Umunna and the Ohanaeze Ndigbo attracted
array of leaders from the South-West, South
South, Middle Belt and the host region, South-East.
Former Secretary to Government of the
Federation, Olu Falae, in his opening remarks
said that the coming together of the people of southern Nigeria and the Middle Belt had come at a right time as “Nigeria is now very sick.”
Speaking, the Ohanaeze President said the essence of the ‘Handshake Across the Nigeria’, was to correct age-long misconception and suspicion among the Igbos and the Yorubas.
