The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, has said that the Igbos no longer buy our cows in the Southeast region of Nigeria.
The group laments that Igbos are their best customers before Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra poison their mind and they stop patronizing them.
MACBAN’s Southeast Chairman, Alhaji Gidado Siddiki, spoke with reporters in Akwa, Anambra State.
He said the issue is no longer the herders and Community again, but the issues of Nnamdi Kanu, who stopped his member from buying from meat from them.
Siddiki, said they have lost more customers in Igbo land, where they make huge sales, because during Igbo traditional wedding, they made good sales.
According to him, “we no longer sell cows like we use to because people no longer celebrates Marriages and burials like before. These are some of the events that give us sales.
“Also, the Igbo no longer patronize us, because their leader, Nnamdi Kanu has poison their mind against us.
“Again, cows have become expensive due to high cost of transportation, our volume of sales has gone down very much”.
However, he urged the governors of the South East and the people of the area to please patronize them as they can’t eat the cow meat alone.
