The proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB has denounced proposals by Nigeria’s Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association to send 5,000 vigilantes to the country’s south-east territory.
The Miyetti Allah party recently declared that vigilantes would be deployed in the South East to defend herders and their animals.
IPOB said in a statement released by its Director of Media and Publicity, Emma Strong, that it was prepared to fight Miyetti Allah’s proposal, and that the cattle breeders’ stance was an insult to Igbo territory.“The attention of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra has been drawn to the threat by Miyetti Allah to deploy 5,000 jihadists to Biafra land to protect their cows and herders following the floating of Ebube Agu security outfit by South-East governors.
We consider this utterance an insult to the entire Biafra and won’t tolerate it despite our grievances against the treacherous South-East governors and the political elite.
The Miyetti Allah and their terrorists group should know that they shouldn’t play God forever. They are trying to provoke ESN and IPOB to take a drastic action. IPOB and ESN are running out of patience with their insults.”he said
