Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has accused the Governor of Enugu State, Dr. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State of clandestine plot to handover huge parcels of land to the Federal Government towards the implementation of the suspended RUGA.
IPOB said Ugwuanyi has concluded arrangements to handover lands within Enugu East, Enugu West and Enugu North Senatorial Zones to herdsmen for RUGA, while Ikpeazu has concluded plans to give out land at Olokoro in Umuahia for the same purpose.
According to IPOB media and publicity secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, the group warned the two governors over the alleged plot and vowed to resist the move amd ensure that it never materialized.
IPOB said it is equally aware that other state governors and politicians within the old eastern region are having series of secret meetings on how to allocate peoples sacred land for Ruga Settlement on the pretence of a renamed National livestock Transformation Plan (NLTP).
“It has come to the knowledge of the great family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) that Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State and Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia have both concluded arrangements to hand over our land in three senatorial zones of Enugu state and Olokoro in Umuahia to Fulani terror herdsmen as part of their clandestine RUGA implimentation program in the East.
“We have also discovered that Governor Ugwuanyi along with some traditional rulers and President General of some communities also connived and handed over a land belonging to Newe in Aninri and Nome in Nkanu communities of Enugu States to Fulani terrorists and their cattle.
“The said land has been in dispute for years between the two communities but now Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has forcefully taken these ancestral lands and handed them over to the same Fulani terror herdsmen that is responsible for hacking to death dozens of Enugu indigenes in Nimbo and other parts of the state without any reprimand.
“The message South East governors are sending out is that Fulani terrorists are welcome to kill Biafrans at will and on top of that they get rewarded with a land for their Fulani settlement.
“Instead of apprehending and prosecuting these maurading murderers, Gov. Ugwuanyi have instead empowered them by giving them a RUGA settlement in Enugu State while publicly claiming he has not done so.
“This level of criminal deception from South East governors have placed the entire Biafraland in danger of a wholescale Fulani invasion.
“We IPOB cannot be dying and placing our lives in danger on a daily basis across Biafraland, fighting well armed Fulani terrorists with our bare hands only to have an Efulefu governor like Ugwuanyi undermine our noble effort.
“Anybody related to Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Okezie Ikpeazu or other Fulani slaves in government houses in the East must warn them to desist from their suicidal undertaking to hand over our land to Fulani Islamic caliphate.
“We are calling on all relatives, stakeholders, supporters of South East governors and traditional rulers to warn Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and his collaborators including those in other states to desist from this evil act of ceeding our ancestral lands to Fulani terrorists for Ruga Settlement or National Livestock Program in any part of Biafraland.
“IPOB does not wish to abandon the critical task of confronting Fulani terrorists in our forests and bushes in order to face these wayward governors and their families in our quest to secure our land.
“We will not spare any person or persons implicated in the conspiracy to Islamise Biafraland through forced Fulani settlements.
“It is important we notify the public that Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi and his supporters have secretly deployed and detailed a detarchment of Fulani controlled Nigerian Police and Army in the two communities of Aninri and Nkanu as a way of frightening and preventing youths, women and children from protesting against the injustice of RUGA settlements in our land.
“Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi must be cautioned and called to order by his family members, friends and associates because if Fulani terrorists aquire or establish Ruga settlement anywhere in Enugu State and its environs, he, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi will bear whatever consequences that may result from it.
“IPOB can never and will never allow the establishment or implementation of Ruga Settlement anywhere on Biafran soil. We shall continue to confront and drive them away wherever they are found even with their police and army support.”
