Gunmen, at the wee hours of Saturday, abducted 10 members of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) and 300 cows in Anambra State.
This is sequel to the April 27 date set aside by the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for the enforcement of the ban on open grazing and beef consumption in the South East of Nigeria.
Stonix News gathered that, the armed men, after the abductions, demanded N4m ransom and a gun from families of their victims.
According to Alhaji Gidado Siddiki, the South East Chairman of MACBAN, the incident happened at Obene Community in Ogbaru Local Government Area (LGA) around 1:30a.m.
Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Anambra Police Command, Ikenga Tochukwu, confirmed the incident.
It will be recalled that earlier this month, gunmen invaded the Igboukwu Cattle Market in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State and killed over 20 cows and goats.
Reports say gunmen have killed no fewer than 150 policemen and members of other security agencies, according to the police, just as no fewer than 30 police stations and election commission offices have been attacked with accusing fingers being pointed at IPoB and Eastern Security Network (ESN).
