The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the group agitating for secession from Nigeria, has urged ‘Biafrans’ to stop eating Fulani cows in order to avoid the infiltration and attacks of their villages by Fulani herdsmen.
IPOB advised people of the South East region to breed their own local cows, which are in abundance, in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, Nsukka in Enugu State and Obudu in Cross River State.
IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, in a statement released on Tuesday, alleged that Fulani herdsmen are hellbent on exterminating Biafrans.
“After putting our acts together, IPOB discovered that the Fulani herdsmen are determined to exterminate the lives of Biafrans through their herdsmen. 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. If we Biafrans implement this without patronizing them again, they will leave our land without molestations because they were equipped with guns and we Biafrans don’t have guns and ammunition.”
“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.”
