Governor Willie Obiano says he is on top of the Fulani Cattle Menace issue experienced in some parts of the state and will ensure that the matter is immediately resolved amicably. 
Governor Obiano made this known during a reception he organized in his country home, Aguleri, after he received the Chieftaincy title of Ebubedike Aguleri from his community. 
Government House Correspondent Kenechukwu Ofomah tells us more. 
Governor Obiano who noted that as the chief security officer of the State, he has been briefed on the situation at hand, said his government had immediately commenced latent actions to forestall any incident that may lead to mayhem or loss of lives. 
He revealed that part of the measures also taken to address the issue include sensitizing both the host communities and the Fulani Herdsmen of the existing agreement that any party that destroys either the lives or property of the other will pay and also be prosecuted, which he noted has prevented any form of clash between the duo in the recent past. 
The governor however made it clear that on no account should herdsmen wielding AK-47 rifles and other dangerous weapons be allowed in the state, noting that Ndi Anambra are peace-loving people who welcome visitors who are seeking wealth opportunities in the state. 
He however warned that anyone who may want to take advantage of the people's hospitality will be decisively dealt with, assuring farmers in the affected communities of his administration's commitment to put an end to the cattle invasion on their farmlands.
