The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has warned the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) to stay away from the lands in the South East region which it referred to as ‘Biafra land’.
The pro-Biafra group claimed that MACBAN’s kind of business has lead to loss of lives and the sacking of indigenes in the region.
This was in reaction to the statement credited to the Fulani cattle breeders group that they were in the South-East just for business interest.
Emma Powerful, IPOB Media and Publicity Secretary, in a statement on Thursday, said it was amusing to believe that Miyetti Allah has purely business interest in Biafraland.
“The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has been drawn to the deceptive statement credited to Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, that they are solely concerned about their business interests in the East and not motivated by their age-long territorial expansionism,” Powerful noted in the statement.
“Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders can deceive their fellow Nigerians with their gimmicks and antics. But we IPOB are smarter than them any time any day.
“We are working tirelessly night and day to protect our people regardless of human and material cost. We, therefore, warn Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, to stay away from Biafraland.
“We don’t need them and their investment including their footsoldiers— herdsmen, bandits, terrorists, ISWAP and others. They should all steer clear of Biafraland before it’s too late. We are at alert and monitoring and watching any step they will dare to make into Biafraland.
“Biafraland cannot harbour bloodsuckers masquerading as herders. We can no longer sit idly by and watch them spill innocent blood under whatever guise, raid communities without provocation, maim and rape our mothers and daughters, or destroy our crops and farmlands.
“Nigerian government, security agencies and Miyetti Allah are all working together to soften the ground for terrorists’ take over of homelands of indigenous people the British experimentally lumped together into Nigeria.”
