Call for land donation to herders,careless, great insult – IPOB

…Says it’s “emboldening of the herdsmen terrorists”

 

Recent call on governors to provide land in each state for Fulani ranching has been described as “careless, thoughtless and a great insult to the indigenous peoples in Nigeria, who have been massacred by the same foreign marauding Fulani terrorists nicknamed herdsmen”.

 

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, says it will not allow the governors of the South East donate lands to Fulani cattle herders.

The group was reacting to President Bola Tinubu’s call to state governors to donate lands to end the farmer-herder crisis.

In a statement through its spokesman, Emma Powerful, IPOB said, “The attention of the global family and movement of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by the great and indefatigable leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has been drawn to the careless call from President Bola Tinubu to the state governors to provide land in each state for Fulani ranching.

“IPOB considers such a call as careless, thoughtless and a great insult to the indigenous peoples in Nigeria, who have been massacred by the same foreign marauding Fulani terrorists nicknamed herdsmen.

“Nigerian dailies yesterday reported what could be considered as the most reckless and thoughtless call by President Tinubu during a political inauguration of his Agricultural Programme in Niger State.

“He was said to have asked the state governors to provide land to the Fulani for RUGA and ranches in the contraption called Nigeria. Perhaps President Tinubu has forgotten that political campaigns where careless promises are made to win elections are over.

“The recent public call for the state governors to provide land to the murderous Fulani that have committed mass murder against the indigenous peoples in Nigeria is thoughtless, careless, and is emboldening of the herdsmen terrorists.”
