Fulani herdsmen onslaught: A tragedy fortold -IPOB
The Indeginous People of Biafra (IPOB) has said that the current onslaught of Fulani herdsmen was foretold by its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, and that was part of the reason he is being hounded.
In a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, IPOB at the weekend recalled that Nnamdi Kanu once said on February 6, 2014 that: "They are coming to elevate Hausa-Fulani supremacy, to reposition the security agencies by sacking all competent hands and replace them with their kinsmen to drive their ethnic domination of the Biafrans and other tribes in Nigeria.
"The Fulani hersmen will be armed and encouraged to slaughter us with impunity and their masters will protect them".
IPOB regretted that it was only now that some Nigerians including leaders of Middle Belt are realising that "Fulani terrorism through out the country especially in the Middle Belt region proves it that our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu was right in all his broadcast on Radio Biafra".
It urged Nigerians to see the activism of Kanu from different perspective.
The statement added: "Those once blindfolded with Hausa Fulani brainwashed strategy would now realize that their fighting against Kanu who was merely trying to save them from the impending doom was right in all his broadcast on Radio Biafra.
"Nigeria and her citizens must apologise to our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu whether alive or dead for their lack of vision."
