IPOB warns of threat to "Islamise" South

18 April 2016, 15:09

Abuja - Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has criticised legislators from the South for their alleged failure to oppose the National Grazing Reserves Commission Bill.

The legal instrument has passed second reading, much to the chagrin of the organisation, which alleges the governors’ stance showed a lack of commitment to the interests of people in the region.

Proponents of the bill say it is aimed at curbing the incessant fatal feuds between Fulani nomadic cattle rearers and farmers all over the country.

“IPOB are warning them that this is a systematic way of bringing the invaders into our land and they are coming to Islamise us,” said Media and Publicity Secretary of IPOB, Emma Powerful.

“Again, we are warning the South-East and South-South governors to tread with caution because we don't have places to use as Fulani ranch and any governor who allocates a place will bear the consequences and posterity will never forgive those who sabotage his or her people.”

Powerful said more so, the high¬est producers of cows grazing and ranch in the world, Argentina and Australia, had not been ravaging and destroying farmland or causing problems with the people.

“Let the northern governors allocate enough land in their state to them because we have no land for cow rearing in Biafraland.”

Incessant clashes between communities and cattle rearers have left scores dead in recent months.
