The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu has called for what he described as a mother of all popular resistance against the increasing Fulani herdsmen attack in the country, saying that only an IPOB led mass revolution will save the day.
He insisted that only IPOB has a history of resistance against the vandals from the Sahel.
Kanu who spoke on the heels of Friday’s attack and murder of the daughter of Afenifere Chairman, Finke Fasoranti Olakunrin by suspected Fulani terrorists said the brazen terror attack must not go unanswered.
A statement by IPOB media and publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful said in part, “Let the murder of the daughter of Afenifere Chairman Funke Fasoranti Olakunrin by Fulani terrorists be another sombre but timely reminder to the great Yoruba race and their media in particular that supporting evil has its unintended consequences.
“I hate to say it but this sad incident goes to underscore the prediction I made long ago that this Govt of Nigeria as constituted from 2015 is a murderous Fulani Wahabbi cabal on a Jihadi mission to terrorise, subjugate and enslave everybody unfortunate enough to be part of the British colonial experiment gone mad called Nigeria.
“I specifically warned the Yoruba race and their dominant media that supporting Fulani atrocities against Biafra and suppression of the truth about the true identity of Jubril Aminu Al-Sudani because of Tinubu’s 2023 presidential ambition will not only be counter-productive but will turn around to consume them. They called me a merchant of hate speech. Today I ask them, what is happening?
“It is unfortunate that at a time of great peril like this, weak men hand-picked by the same Fulani caliphate that are persecuting everybody today, are the ones in charge of the leadership of the South. Fulani terror will only stop when we confront them with an equal force, mere words will not do it.
“An immoral and spineless Yoruba media should shoulder the blame for the death of this prominent Yoruba daughter and the wider rampaging savagery of Fulani herdsmen across Nigeria. They failed to objectively report the truth but instead chose to malign and attack IPOB that saw the danger the country was sliding into way ahead of everybody.”
The IPOB leader called on the youths of the Middle Belt and South West to rise up to join IPOB to dismantle the Zoo and chart a new course for the respective ethnic nationalities that make up Nigeria adding that it is the better chances of survival or else, the country is doomed.
He maintained that press statements and lamentations will not stop the invaders but only concrete mass action can saying, “We are ever ready.”
