The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has lampooned the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami SAN for comparing open grazing to spare parts sale in the North.
Ohanaeze, in statement issued by its spokesman, Alex Ogbonnia on Thursday, said the remark by the AGF was “thoughtless.”
The group, while describing the statement as prejudicial, added that the AGF had become a chief law officer that twisted the law at will.
“Malami had also condemned the Amotekun security outfit by the South-West and so on. Malami knows that there has never been a report of a clash between the Southern motor spare parts sellers and the indigenous northerners,” Ohaneze said.
Ohaneze added that spare parts dealers do not invade people’s farms, destroy crops and debauch women.
“The motor spare parts sellers render their services to the populace from shops or sheds and are in no way comparable to the Fulani herders who invade farmlands, destroy crops, debauch women, maim, abduct and kill,” the group added.
