Ohanaeze Ndigbo has warned Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) not to over step their boundaries because South East have accommodated them.
The apex Igbo socio-cultural group issued this warning in a statement by its Secretary General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, while reacting to an alleged plan by Miyetti Allah to operate a Fulani security group in the South East.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo further warned that if the purported move by Miyetti Allah is not quelled, it may spell doom to Nigeria.
Isiguzoro emphasized that securing lives and property of the citizenry solely lies in the hands of governors and the President, vowing that Ndigbo would resist any attempt to deploy Fulani security group to man the nooks and crannies of Igbo land.
He cautioned Miyetti Allah not to taste the venom and wrath of the Igbos with the increasing attacks on innocent Igbos by its killer herders.
“We have accommodated them, living with them peacefully, but we will resist any attempt to deploy any Fulani security group in the east,” Isiguzoro said.
The Igbo disclosed that its leadership will invite ESN, Ebube Agu and Miyetti Allah for a meeting so as to holistically and proactively address the wanton destruction of lives and property, occasioned by herdsmen and farmers’ clashes across the South-East zone.
KanyiDaily recalls that Ohanaeze Youth had also warned that any herdsman caught moving with cows from Community to Community will taste the full Wrath of Igbo.
