BIAFRA- The Pro-Biafra group, The Indigenous People of Biafra have on Thursday, replied the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) on the claim that they (Miyetti Allah) are interested in the South East for business interest only.
IPOB said this, in a statement released by its media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful. In
the statement, the Pro-Biafra group stated that Myyetti Allah’s kind of business is one which leads to loss of life and properties and sacking of indigenes and that they find it amusing that Miyetti Allah is saying they have purely business interest in Biafraland.
Below is the statement
“The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has been drawn to the deceptive statement credited to Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, that they are solely concerned about their business interests in the East and not motivated by their age-long territorial expansionism.
“Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders can deceive their fellow Nigerians with their gimmicks and antics. But we IPOB are smarter than them any time any day.
“We are working tirelessly night and day to protect our people regardless of human and material cost. We, therefore, warn Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, to stay away from Biafraland.
“We don’t need them and their investment including their footsoldiers— herdsmen, bandits, terrorists, ISWAP, and others. They should all steer clear of Biafraland before it’s too late. We are at alert and monitoring and watching any step they will dare to make into Biafraland.
“Biafraland cannot harbor bloodsuckers masquerading as herders. We can no longer sit idly by and watch them spill innocent blood under whatever guise, raid communities without provocation, maim and rape our mothers and daughters, or destroy our crops and farmlands.
“Nigerian government, security agencies, and Miyetti Allah are all working together to soften the ground for terrorists’ take over of homelands of indigenous people the British experimentally lumped together into Nigeria.”
