The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, warned that there is no land in the Southern parts of Nigeria for Fulani herdsmen settlements.
In a statement by IPOB spokesperson, Emma Powerful, Nnamdi Kanu warned any governor, traditional ruler, or President General of any community against giving any land to herdsmen.
He stated that any leader who cedes any space, including for financial reasons to Fulani herdsmen, is ultimately calling for the death of their people.
A statement by Powerful reads: “IPOB has made it abundantly clear that we have no land for Fulani herdsmen settlement in Biafra land, the North have more space than the South, especially the South East.
“We must warn that any traditional ruler or President General of every any community in Biafraland who ventures to cede any space of land to the Fulani herdsmen for the sake of monetary gain, or issue, is ultimately calling for the death of their people.
“The person must equally pay with his own life for such ceding of land to the Fulani herdsmen, he must die, IPOB and ESN are prepared to deal with them. Even the governor who tried will not go scot-free.
“We don’t have land for Fulani terrorists in Nigeria they are free to stay in the North where they were allowed in 1804.”
