Infuriated by the unwarranted attack, Ambassador Obiorah herped on the need for security agencies in Nigeria to close ranks, shun ethnic and tribal sentiments while discharging their fundamental roles of security of lives and property.

The South East Governors Forum had identified the movement of herdsmen and their cattle from one Community to another through farmlands as the cause of frequent clashes between farmers and herdsmen and issued its ban in a communique read by Governor Umahi, as the chairman of South East Governors Forum.

He said it will give it the required legal backing to make it enforceable for any perpetrator to be brought to justice.
