Group bans Fulani herdsmen from South-East

Okereafor also threatened that MASSOB will not keep quiet and watch Fulani herdsmen commit atrocities in Igbo land.

The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB).

The group has also issued a 30 day ultimatum to the Federal Government, asking them to stop the attacks of the herdsmen in Igbo land or face the wrath of the easterners.

MASSOB said “Again, we are warning Fulani herdsmen and their sponsors to withdraw from Biafra land. They should count Igbo land out of their Islamisation policy.”

This is coming on the heels of an attack in Uzo Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State by suspected Fulani herdsmen that reportedly left 40 dead.

The Daily Sun reports that MASSOB’s National Director of Information, Sunny Okereafor said “MASSOB is worried that Fulani herdsmen have become very daring in their attacks since President Buhari came to power.

“We are not saying Buhari is their sponsor, but his silence over the attacks is suspicious. MASSOB is giving Buhari a 30-day ultimatum to stop the attacks or face our wrath.”

He also said “We are also warning Ndigbo to remain on alert, as these Fulani herdsmen are terrorists posing as herdsmen. Soon, they will pay for all their atrocities against the people of Biafra.”

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered the Inspector-General of police (IGP), undefinedacross the country.
