The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has asked the Igbo tribes in Nigeria to stay clear off Fulani cattle in order to avoid situations whereby the herdsmen would raid their towns to kill and rape their women. IPOB also asked Ndigbo to breed their own local cows which can be achieved in Abakaliki in Ebonyi State, Nsukka in Enugu State and Obudu in Cross River State.
In a statement signed by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful, the organisation said that after putting their acts together, discovered that the Fulani herdsmen are determined to completely destroy the lives of Biafrans through their herdsmen, and so they the Ndigbos have to act fast to counter that plan.
“We in the IPOB worldwide are calling on all Biafrans to stop eating Fulani cows and stop patronizing them. They will leave our land and stop raping our women and girls and they will stop killing our men because of our wives and girls. We discovered that these Fulani herdsmen are not ordinary people but Boko Haram insurgents who were trained by their brothers. We are calling on Biafrans to start eating goat meat, chickens and fish. Again, all Biafrans should start rearing their local cows. We have them at Abakiliki in Ebonyi State, Nsukka in Enugu State and Obudu Ranch in Calaber, Cross River State in abundance,” he said.
“If we Biafrans implement this without patronizing them again, they will leave our land without molestation because they were equipped with guns and we Biafrans don’t have guns and ammunition. We also know that Hausa/Fulani don’t eat much of cow meat but have you asked yourselves questions why they don’t eat red meat? IPOB reminds you about what the Hausa/Fulani did in Agatu, Benue State and in Delta State where they kidnapped a traditional ruler and killed him and in Enugu and Ebonyi states where they ravaged, killed, maimed and raped our women and girls.”
Within a short frame of time, a lot of achievements have been facilitated by the IPOB leader ‘s arrest, Nnamdi Kanu. Most Igbo people are now more alert to the cause of the group, and the world also is beginning to hear of and speak for/against Biafra, which according to the leader would be a state of its own in no time.
Biafra has to build its foundation in various aspect, especially in agriculture, since most food items such as rice, yam, beef and vegetables are gotten from the north. Ndigbo ought to start farming and rearing their own cows if they want Biafra to survive when it eventually stands as a country.
