The Biafra Nations Youth League, BNYL, has warned Fulani Herdsmen to stay away from Cross River state.
This is according to a statement released on Friday by the BNYL Deputy Leader and Head of Operations, Biafra Broadcasting Service, Ebuta Ogar Takon. Biafra Nations Youth League recalled that it warned Fulani leaders in Nigeria of a possible resistance if the herdsmen continued their violent acts.
It said “As expected, the anti-grazing law in Benue State has forced some Fulani herdsmen to move towards Cross River State.
“There has been series of clashes between the herdsmen and villagers, the most recent is the clashes in Yala local government area of Cross River State.”
Takon who warned that the group would not fold its arms, however, lambasted at a presidential aide, Chief Okoi Obono Obla for condemning Biafra agitators while ignoring killer herdsmen.
“If Obla can condemn our demands for Biafra Republic, I see no reason why he should pretend to be ignorant of the evil perpetrated on his people by Buhari’s kinsmen.
“The earlier he intimates the Presidency to disarm killer herdsmen, the better; because if they continue to be a threat to us, we will be forced to mobilize our communities to engage them in defense”, he warned. Meanwhile, the group has given its position on the forthcoming Anambra election
