Nnamdi Kanu foretold Fulani herdsmen killings – IPOB
February 12th, 2018
Indigenous People of Biagra (IPOB) says Nnamdi Kanu, its leader, foretold the current onslaught of Fulani herdsmen. It adds that Kanu’s revelation of the tragedy is part of the reasons he is being hounded.
In a statement signed by Emma Powerful, its media and publicity secretary, at the weekend, IPOB recalled that Kanu said on February 6, 2014: “They are coming to elevate Hausa-Fulani supremacy, to reposition the security agencies by sacking all competent hands and replacing them with their kinsmen, to drive their ethnic domination of the Biafrans and other tribes in Nigeria.
“The Fulani herdsmen will be armed and encouraged to slaughter us with impunity and their masters will protect them.”
IPOB regretted that some Nigerians, including leaders of Middle Belt, are just believing that “Fulani terrorism throughout the country, especially in the Middle Belt region, prove it that our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, was right in all his broadcast on Radio Biafra.”
It urged Nigerians to see the activism of Kanu from a different perspective.
The statement added: “Those once blindfolded with Hausa/Fulani brainwashed strategy would now realise that their fight against Kanu who was merely trying to save them from the impending doom was right in all his broadcast on Radio Biafra.
“Nigeria and her citizens must apologise to our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, whether alive or dead for their lack of vision.”
