Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has said that the governors of the five South Eastern Nigerian States are collaborating with the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN), on the call to create a Fulani vigilante group in the South East.
It will be recalled that MACBAN on Thursday during a security summit in Enugu called for the establishment of Fulani vigilante group in communities of the south east, to compliment its host community counterparts and other constituted security apparatus in the zone.
Meanwhile, Kanu’s reaction is coming on the heels of the response for the call which came from Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi who is also the Chairman of the South East Governors Forum.
Umahi who was represented by his Deputy, Kelechi Igwe said, “We will continue to accommodate the Miyetti Allah but our plea to them is that as we are magnanimous to allow settlers, every community has a custom that needs not to be violated. It is the violation that breeds problem,”…
Reacting, the IPOB leader termed the governors of the five South Eastern Nigerian States “spineless cowards,” stressing that they are treating the demand for Fulani Vigilante Group in the zone by Miyetti Allah with kid gloves.
Kanu said that it is extremely shocking and shameful that, at a time when Fulani cattle herders have turned to terrorists and ravaging the North, Middle Belt and Yorubaland, Southeast Governors allowed Miyetti Allah to get away with such criminal demand on Igbo soil.
According to him, “Considering the weak and rambling response of Governor Dave Umahi to this criminal demand, we are certain these Southeast Governors have already granted this request; and in the unlikely event they have not, it’s highly probable that they will, albeit secretly.
“In such event, I hereby warn Miyetti Allah, Southeast Governors and their collaborators in the Southeast and elsewhere in Nigeria that IPOB will not tolerate the establishment of any Fulani militia, masquerading as vigilantes, in Southeast or anywhere else in Biafraland.
“I condemn in totality, both in letter and spirit the underhand agreement between South East Governors and Fulani terrorists that led to the idiotic call by Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN), the fourth most deadly terror group in the world, for the establishment of Fulani terrorist vigilante groups in Igboland Biafra.
“That it is extremely shocking and shameful that, at a time when Fulani cattle herders have turned to terrorists and ravaging the North, Middle Belt and Yorubaland, Southeast Governors allowed Miyetti Allah to get away with such criminal demand on our soil.
“It’s akin to telling someone in advance that you are coming to rob his house and he allowed you to just walk away, while pleading with you that you should reconsider.
“Instead of ordering their immediate arrest on the spot for daring to so brazenly reveal their criminal intention to invade Igboland, the spineless cowards that pass for South-East Governors appear to want to accommodate their demands.
“No doubt as payback for being rigged back into power by Abba Kyari led Fulani Cabal that run the government of Nigeria in the name of a dead Buhari.
“Miyetti Allah a mere cattle trading association, that later turned into a militant terrorist organisation is now openly threatening to conquer Igboland with the help of Igbo governors.
“It defies logic that Southeast Governors would care to give audience in the open in Igboland to an organisation that has been rated the fourth deadliest terrorist organisation in the world.
“Did the Southeast Governors stop to consider that Biafran traders in the far North, even though law abiding, can never be given the audience and reverence that these Southeast governors have so shamefully extended to Miyetti Allah.”
