“Vacate Our Land, Forests Within 2 Months Or Be Killed” – Igbo Group Tells Fulani Herdsmen

An Igbo pressure group, Voice from the East, VEAST, has given the Fulani herdsmen in the South-East, as well as Anioma, in Delta State, and Ikwere in Rivers State, up till August 31, 2018 to leave.

The group wants the cattle rearers to vacate their land and forests.

The group embarked on a peaceful protest Tuesday in Enugu, warning that should the armed herdsmen fail to leave after the ultimatum, they would mobilise and comb forests and lands to send them packing.

They said that they may even resort to killing the herdsmen should they become adamant and refuse to leave.

They said that the quit notice was a result of the Federal Government’s inaction or tacit support for the herdsmen menace.

Convener of the group, Comrade Kindness Jonah, told newsmen after their demonstration that government’s inability to check the killings necessitated the issuance of the quit notice.

“We carried out the demonstration for the sole purpose of giving quit notice to Fulani herdsmen in Igboland, the five South Eastern states as well as Anioma and Ikwerre land.

“The aberrant killings by Fulani herdsmen purposely unchecked by Federal Government and military instigated this quit notice.

“At Ezi Nze in UDI Local Government Area of Enugu State, Fulani herdsmen kidnapped several young men, demanding N2 million compensation for purported killing of undisclosed number of cows, out of which N6000,000.00 has been paid.

“VEAST sees this as an affront of the highest order which can no longer be tolerated in Igboland.

”After 31st August, 2018, since nobody holds the monopoly of violence and for the mere fact that the Nigerian military and police are working secretly, openly with the herdsmen, VEAST will galvanise young men from all Igboland to enter Igbo forests to kill and butcher any Fulani herdsmen,” he said.

  1. This is exactly what these fulani herdsmen need

  2. I knew it wi come to this. It’s quite unfortunate that the entity or unit called Nigeria does not exist because a particular group called Fulani has refused for it to t because they feel superior to everybody inat exist in this country. They even feel more superior than the Hausa. Even the Hausa’s dread them. I can bodily say this because I have interacted with many them. The Fulani as i havr studied are immigrants,and are trying to make Nigeria their caliphate thereby enslave the rest tribes of this darling nation. I forsee more skirmishes.
    Sebi they gave notice that they (the herdsmen terrorist) are coming? We patiently await their arrival.
