“Henceforth, attack our people and see hell”, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) this weekend threatens Miyetti Allah, as the cattle breeders issued a threat few days ago that it will carry out attacks on Igbo villages.
Miyetti Allah’s threat is in reaction to its allegation that some Fulani herdsmen were allegedly killed in some undisclosed locations in the South East geopolitical zone.
In its statement, Miyetti Allah had said: “So far, more than 50 herders have been killed in the South-East in the last one month, we have the record and the Igbo terrorists led by Nnamdi Kanu will pay for everybody they killed.
“It is unfortunate that they have forgotten history, how we saved a lot of Igbos in the North during the Civil War, but now they are killing our people.
“They are making a grievous mistake. We will take necessary steps both legal and cultural steps to avenge the killings of our members. We’ll Avenge Death of Every Herdsman Killed in South-East By Nnamdi Kanu’s IPOB”.
In swift reaction to the threat, IPOB in a statement by its leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu warned: “Miyetti Allah, hear this: IPOB is not South-East Governors that you can threaten and get away with.
“We are the same IPOB that collapsed the Zoo. We are after every killer herdsman. We’re after you, Fulani Terrorists, and murderers masquerading as herdsmen.
“If you implement this your Threat, it shall be your last. We no longer believe in turning the other cheek, it is now Blood for Blood and you will lose”.
