The apex Igbo socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, has warned Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, against any attempt to operate a Fulani security group in the Igbo land.
Ohanaeze further warned that if the purported move by Miyetti Allah is not quelled, it may spell doom to Nigeria.
The Igbo organization in a statement by its Secretary-General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro on Monday night, emphasized that securing lives and property of the citizenry solely lies in the hands of State Governors and the President, vowing that Ndigbo would resist such attempt to deploy any Fulani security group to man nooks and crannies of Igbo land.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo 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,” he said.
The group further used the medium to condemn in strong terms the burning down of security formations in Uzuakoli, Bende local government area of Abia State.
