This is true because despite the ban on open grazing in the South East, there are still a lot of attacks in the South East that were initially reported to be carried out by Fulani Herdsmen. The attacks on the lives and properties of people in the South East have become incessant. The Unknown Gunmen are attacking public facilities and private properties. Although solutions are underway to curb the incessant attacks from the Unknown gunmen.

The governors and elders in the South East met on Tuesday in Enugu to discuss the insecurity in the South East and came out with several Communiques which includes; that the governors and elders will join hands together to curb incessant attacks in the South East and before the end of 2021, the already floated Ebubeagu Eastern Security Network will be empowered to protect the lives and properties of people in the zone.

However, different reports from the security agencies across the South East have shown that the attacks are being carried out by the Eastern Security Network (ESN), an armed wing of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). Many arrested gunmen in the zone have openly confessed that they were working for the group. A reason Fulani herdsmen have been vindicated for the accusations leveled on them initially is that they were the ones perpetrating attacks on the lives and properties of people in the South East.
