The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has called for what he described as the 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 those he called 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 herdsmen, said that the brazen terror attack must not go unanswered.
A statement by IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, Comrade Emma Powerful said: “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.”
The statement further quoted Kanu as saying: “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.”
