Biafra youth threaten war against Fulani herdsmen

02 May 2016, 11:11

Abuja - The Biafra Nations Youth League (BNYL) has threatened to take up arms in the wake of confrontation by the Fulani herdsmen.

BYNL President, Chimezie Obuka, gave the warning following media reports the cattle rearers were planning another attack in the Enugu State, where scores have been killed in recent days.

Obuka said his organisation would act in self defence and engage and herdsmen “fire for fire.”

“We are not going to tolerate any further attack in Biafra, the fact that Enugu shares boundaries with them does not mean our land would be easily taken by the terrorists who now disguise as herdsmen,” he said.

“If they want fight, they should give notice of where they will storm, we are ready to exchange bullet for bullet and sword for sword.”

Obuka further reacted to the recent statement by Governors from the north, allegedly defending Fulani.

“We are not surprised that northern Governors are sponsoring attack on communities in Biafra but they should be prepared because we will go to war. A time will come when we shall no longer rely on self defence, and that is when we shall arm Biafra youth to invade the north.”

While comment could not be obtained from security agencies, Obuka risks being charged with treason.

Last week, he said the Security Wing of BNYL killed four herdsmen during a battle in Umuchigbo Abakpa Nike, Enugu State.

Schools have been shut as a result of the chaos.
