Mr Kanu while sharing the video clip warned security agencies to steer clear of South-East bushes as anyone found in bushes must be treated as a bush meat.

His warning comes months after he ordered herdsmen residing in bushes in the Igbo predominantly area to vamoose and rent houses in the cities and live like humans.

The herders are allegedly being accused as arrowheads of insecurity bedeviling the nation. Killings, rapings, kidnappings are some of the crimes being levelled against them.
