The ban which took effect immediately was one of the resolutions passed at the community meeting held on Saturday by its leaders, Punchng.com reports.
The paper said the decision followed from last week’s repeated attacks on the communities by marauding Fulani herdsmen, which resulted in the death of no fewer than 10 persons died.
“By this ban, nobody can bring cow meat to any of the communities that made up Uwheru Kingdom for any function, be it burial or any other celebration. You can’t kill our people and expect us to be eating cow meat when our people can’t go to farm. The ban takes effect immediately,” it quoted a source privy to the meeting as saying.
