The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has said that the activities of Fulani herdsmen terrorising the Southern Nigeria will only end when confronted with equal force.
The IPOB leader who was reacting to the killing of Mrs. Funke Fasoranti Olakunrin, daughter of the Chairmen of Yoruba Socio-Cultural organization, Afenifere, Chief Reuben Fosaranti, by suspected Fulani herdsmen, commiserated with the Fosaranti family and urged the entire Yoruba nation to act and face the reality.
Kanu berated what he termed Yoruba dominated media for keeping silent in the face of all the murderous activities going on around them, but only get their voices back when it issues concerning IPOB are raised.
In a statement signed by IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, Kanu called for mass revolution in Nigeria over the murderous activities of Fulani herdsmen stressing that mere Press statements and lamentations will not stop the marauding Invaders from perpetrating their planned jihad.
He added that it is unfortunately true that rampaging savagery of Fulani herdsmen across Nigeria goes to underscore the prediction he made long ago in 2015 about the sinister plan by the Fulanis, but was tagged a merchant of hate speech.
The release reads in full, “The brazen terror attack on Yoruba soil by Fulani terrorists yesterday(Friday), must not go unanswered.
“Let the murder of the daughter of Afenifere Chairman Funke Fasoranti Olakunrin by Fulani terrorists be another sombre, but timely reminder to the great Yoruba race and their media in particular that supporting evil has its unintended consequences.
“I hate to say it, but this sad incident goes to underscore the prediction I made long ago that this government of Nigeria as constituted from 2015 is a murderous Fulani Wahabbi cabal on a Jihadi mission to terrorise, subjugate and enslave everybody unfortunate enough to be part of the British colonial experiment gone mad called Nigeria.
“I specifically warned the Yoruba race and their dominant media that supporting Fulani atrocities against Biafra and suppression of the truth about the true identity of Jubril Aminu Al-Sudani because of Tinubu’s 2023 presidential ambition will not only be counter-productive but will turn around to consume them.
“They called me a merchant of hate speech. Today I ask them, what is happening? It is unfortunate that at a time of great peril like this, weak men hand-picked by the same Fulani caliphate that are persecuting everybody today, are the ones in charge of the leadership of the South.
“Fulani terror will only stop when we confront them with an equal force, mere words will not do it.
“An immoral and spineless Yoruba media should shoulder the blame for the death of this prominent Yoruba daughter and the wider rampaging savagery of Fulani herdsmen across Nigeria.
“They failed to objectively report the truth but instead chose to malign and attack IPOB that saw the danger the country was sliding into way ahead of everybody.
“The time for the mother of all popular resistance is now not tomorrow. Only an IPOB led mass revolution will save the day because we are the only ones with a history of resistance against the vandals from the Sahel.
“The sooner the youths of the Middle Belt and South West rise up to join IPOB to dismantle the Zoo and chart a new course for the respective ethnic nationalities that make up Nigeria, the better our chances of survival or else we are all doomed.
“Press statements and lamentations will not stop the invaders, only concrete mass action can and we are ever ready.”
