FULANI MASSACRE IN BIAFRA LAND: MASSOB EXPLODES, THREATENS BUHARI (FULL DETAILS)
President Muhammadu Buhari has been issued a fresh threat over the unending attacks by the Fulani herdsmen on Nigeria’s south eastern state of Enugu. This threat was made by the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) via a press statement signed by the group’s national director of information, Sunny Okoreafor.
Vanguard reports that the incessant attacks by Fulani herdsmen in some states of the federation have prompted the pro-Biafra group to give President Buhari a 30-day ultimatum to end the attack on innocent Nigerians or face its wrath.
“MASSOB is worried that Fulani herdsmen have become very daring in their attacks since President Buhari came to power. We are not saying Buhari is their sponsor, but his silence over the attacks is suspicious. MASSOB is giving Buhari 30 days ultimatum to stop the attacks or face our wrath.
“Again, we are warning Fulani herdsmen and their sponsors to withdraw from Biafra land. They should count Igbo land out of their Islamization policy. We are also warning Ndigbo to remain at alert as these Fulani herdsmen are terrorists posing as herdsmen. Soon, they will pay for all their atrocities against the people of Biafra,” the statement read.
The group’s spokesperson also disclosed that they have set up a committee to monitor the activities of Fulani herdsmen in Igbo land, adding that their non-violent policy will soon be neglected to protect Biafrans if the federal government refuses to check the menace by the herdsmen. Speaking also on the issue is Junaid Mohammed, a second republic lawmaker of the coalition of northern politicians. In an interview with The Sun, Mohammed also expressed his opinion about the political appointments made by President Muhamnadu Buhari so far and the impasse around the budget.
“As far as I am concerned, if a government has the political will to solve a problem, and that will and attitude towards any political problem is perhaps a reflection of the attitude of the elite themselves, that problem can be solved. The central issue here is having the political will,” he said.
