Igbo group warns Fulani herdsmen against violence in South-East

The Biafra Nations Youth League said the Fulani group must accept the decision of the South East Governors Forum.

Biafra Nations Youth League (BNYL), have warned the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, (MACBAN) not to sponsor any violent activities in the South East and South South.

BNYL said the Fulani group must accept the decision of the South East Governors Forum not to release any portion of land to herdsmen, adding that cattle colonies will not be condoned in the region.

According to the group's leader, Princewill Chimezie Richard,  the Igbo youths and their brothers in the South South will not tolerate Islamic activities of the Fulani militia.

“Cattle Colony is an Islamic expansionist agenda, it is a tactic to conquer those who do not fall under Dan Fodio established Islamic caliphates in Nigeria.

“They conquered the Oyo and the Bini Empire with the help of the Yoruba in Kwara whose territory were totally captured by the powerful Jihadist, some of the Middle Belt tribes especially in Kogi were captured, apart from Benue and Plateau and Southern Kaduna people who are Christians but are under Sharia Laws.

“The ongoing killing there is to take full control of their territory.”

BNYL also threatened to retaliate if Fulani herdsmen kill anybody in the East.
