The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has reiterated that the South East will not give out lands to Fulani herdsmen for settlement or grazing of cattles.
IPOB in a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful called on the herders to seek for land in the north.
The group warned South East or South South political and traditional leaders against ceding any space of land for monetary reason to the herders, adding that such a person will be dealt with.
IPOB’s statement read in part: “IPOB has made it abundantly clear that we have no land for herdsmen settlement in Biafra land. The North has more space than the South,especially the South East.
“We must warn that any traditional ruler or president general of any community in Biafraland who ventures to cede any space of land to the herdsmen for the sake of monitory gain is ultimately calling for the death of their people.
“The person must equally pay for such ceding of land to killer herdsmen. IPOB and Eastern Security Network, ESN, are prepared to deal with them. Even governors who tried will not go scot free. We don’t have land for terrorists in Nigeria. They are free to stay in the North where they were allowed in 1804.”
