The Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has warned Fulani herdsmen to leave the South-East zone and not to mistake it’s non-violence policy for weakness.
The group’s spokesman, Comrd. Edeson Samuel, who gave the warning in a statement on Tuesday following the brutal killings meted out by fulani herdsmen on the people of Uzo-Uwani Council Area of the state on Monday, said the fact that MASSOB believes in non violence does not mean that they cannot defend themselves as there is a limit to human endurance.
“MASSOB condemns the attack on Biafrans by Fulani herdsmen at Uzo-uwani L.G.A Enugu State. We wish to remind Ndigbo and Biafrans that this killing and destruction of property of our people by Fulani herdsmen is getting out of hand.We are warning the Fulani herdsmen to leave Biafra land or they will face our wrath.
“The fact that MASSOB believes in non violence does not mean that we cannot defend ourselves. There is a limit to human endurance”.
MASSOB said it was a pity that the Amnesty International has never for one day written a report against Nigerian military and Fulani herdsmen over the killing of Ndigbo.thus, it called on all pro-Biafra groups and Igbo youths to wake up,unite and face the enemies.
“It is a pity that the Amnesty International has never for one day write a report against Nigerian military and Fulani herdsmen over the killing of our people. The massacre of MASSOB/IPOB members in Aba, the Ezu-River, killing of six Igbo traders in Abuja (the Apo six) the invasion of Igbo land by the Fulani herdsmen, all these, Amnesty International has not and will never see reasons to indict Nigerian Government because they are being controlled by the North.
“A lot of crime has been committed against the Easterners but the Amnesty International kept mute, but if it were in the north, it will quickly write a report. Shame to the leadership of Amnesty International.
“This ethnic cleansing was planned against Ndigbo in 2003. Now that power has gone to the Fulani, they began the execution of this evil agenda. MASSOB is calling on all the pro-Biafra groups and Igbo youths to wake up and let us unite and face our enemies.”
The group also called on the international community, the United Nations (UN) Europen Union (EU), African Union (AU) to come to their aid.
“MASSOB is also calling on the international community, the United Nations (UN) Europen Union (EU), African Union (AU) to come to our aid because the agenda of President Mohammadu Buhari and his kinsmen is to exterminate Ndigbo and Biafrans from the face of the earth.
“It is time for the people of Kogi, Benue and Plataue State to rise up and defend their land and save their people from this Fulani herdsmen because a stitch in time saves nine.
“We will not fold our hands and watch our people murdered in cold of blood. Where are the South East governors, the South East Senators, the South east members of House of Representatives? All the South East members of State House of Assembly, what are they doing over this Fulani herdsmen invasion of our land?”
