Joe Igbokwe, the publicity secretary of the Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has advised Igbos to give up some of their lands to Fulani herdsmen.

“Look, people have misunderstood what the Fulani herdsmen are asking for. The herdsmen are only asking for empty lands, bushes, forests or you may choose to call it anything you like.
“What they are not asking for is your house. They stay in the bush while you enjoy yourself in the comfort of your house.
“How would there be a problem? Allow these men to be…for instance, do you know that one single cattle colony in the South East will solve a lot of problems for the herdsmen?”, Igbokwe said.
