MASSOB decries cattle colonies, says plot to establish Fulani emirs in host communities


The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has alleged that the move by the Federal Government to establish cattle colonies in some states is an agenda to have Fulani emirs established in the host communities and to overrun all towns in Nigeria.

Among the places MASSOB alleged the Federal Government wants to establish these emirs through the proposed cattle colonies for Fulani herdsmen include Owerri, Enugu, Benin, Agatu, Wukari and Abeokuta.

This claim was contained in a statement released by MASSOB leader, Uchenna Madu. He applauded the governors of Abia and Anambra states, Okezie Ikpeazu and Willie Obiano respectively, for openly rejecting to cede any part of their state land for the establishment of cattle colonies.

“We salute the eloquent courageous spirit of Abia state governor, Okezie Ikpeazu for opposing the anti peoples federal government policy which only favors the Fulani and their cows.

“Establishing colonial village for Fulani herdsmen and their cows simply means allowing a known enemy to dine, wine and sleep with a hated opponent. The Fulani are parasitic in nature. The Fulani has no ideals, no ambitions such as sensual in character. A Fulani man is a fatalist, spendthrift and a gambler. He is gravely immoral and is seriously diseased that he is a menace to any community to which he seeks to attach himself.

“With the ancestral, religious and tribal orientations of the Fulani, including the nature of their occupational specialisation, it would be difficult and impossible for the Fulani to cohabit with non-Muslim communities mostly the Igbo.

“It will not be farfetched to conclude that the Fulani herdsmen and their kinsmen are pawns in an agenda to overrun all towns in Nigeria, so that we will have emirs in Owerri, Enugu, Benin, Agatu, Wukari, Abeokuta and other towns where Federal government is planning to create grazing reserves colonies for Fulani herdsmen.

“MASSOB also commends the Anambra State governor, Willie Obiano, for boldly and openly declaring that Anambra State can never condone Fulani herdsmen’s criminal and terrorist activities. These bold protective steps taken by some Igbo governors are acceptable by MASSOB.

“We also advise current Igbo governors to emulate the infrastructural developing spirit of Anambra State former governor, Mr. Peter Obi on his development stride on educational, economic, transportation, health, sports, agricultural sectors.

“Some other sleeping governors should wake up from their cowardice slumber and follow the fearless footsteps of their counterparts in infrastructural development of their respective states.
