The leadership of the Movement For The Actualization Of Sovereign State Of Biafra (MASSOB) at the weekend issued a stern warning to Myetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) to stay action in an attempt to establish a vigilante group in Biafra land, Newzandar reports.
The group made this known in a press statement signed by the Director Of Information,
Comrade Edeson Samuel and forwarded to DAILY POST, in Abakaliki, capital of Ebonyi State.
The statement reads in part: “MASSOB vehemently reject the attempt by a terrorist group in disguise called Myetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) to establish a Fulani vigilante group in Biafra land. It is provocative and an insult to Ndigbo.
“It’s also another dimension of adding more salt to the political, economic and religious injuries of Ndigbo . For these so called cattle breeders to have suggested for establishment of vigilante in Igbo land proves a clear evidence of their plans to dominate and conquer the entire southern region which their grandfather, Othman Dan Fodio commanded them to do.
“This is their next move to annihilate the entire Igbo nation in the name of providing security for Ndigbo. MASSOB can never allow our arch enemies to provide us with security, allowing such is as good as Ndigbo committing suicide.
“MASSOB wishes to remind our people that on Thursday 11th June 2019, These marauding terrorist called Fulani herdsmen blocked Agbani — Ugbawka road in Nkanu LGA, Enugu state. They robbed passengers in commercial vehicle of their belongings and money, they also took some women into the nearby bush and raped them.
“It is a pity that Ndigbo are sleeping while our house is on fire. These Fulani herdsmen are president Mohammadu Buhari foot soldiers who has come to do the bidding of their master, moving from States to communities with AK 47 rifles, killing farmers, raping their women, destroying their farm crops and setting their houses ablaze.
” If these Myetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association can provide security, they should go to Zamfara, Maiduguri or Katsina states and other areas in the North where Boko Haram has taken over. They said that charity begins at home,” he stated.
