Leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu says Fulani herdsmen have turned Abia State from “God’s Own State” to a cattle market.
He stated this in a statement made available by the group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful.
Kanu, an Abia indigene, alleged that South-East governors have continued to give more land to violent herdsmen that have been killing residents of the zone at will.
He equally lambasted the Ohanaeze Ndigbo socio-cultural group for doing nothing as terrorists disguised as herdsmen continue to wreak havoc in Igbo land.
The IPOB leader said the marauders have changed “Abia State from God’s Own State to Miyetti Allah owned cattle market. Mind you Lokpanta in the same Abia is now a full-fledged Fulani town.
“The more Miyetti Allah terrorists kill us in our own land, the more of it the so-called governors are prepared to give to them. What a sick sad joke.
“When the history of Fulani terrorist conquest of Igboland is written in the next 100 years, it will be recalled that a certain group of men called Ohaneze Ndigbo and a band of traitors working for the Caliphate sadly referred to as Igbo governors plotted the Islamic takeover of the land of their ancestors.
“Apparently, all the Fulani terrorists did was to promise each South-East state governor the same unrealisable slot of Vice President of the Nigeria Republic.
“For this token promise, each governor is now falling over themselves to please the caliphate by ceding our ancestral lands to Fulani Caliphate.
“These are the workers of iniquity some misguided people want us to regard as elders worthy of respect,” the statement read in part.
