The Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has hailed the decision of Northern elders to direct Fulani herdsmen to leave the southern parts of Nigeria.
Naija News recalls that the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) had stated that information at their disposal reveals that some individuals are plotting to harm herdsmen in the southern part of Nigeria.
Speaking after a meeting with the Coalition of Northern Groups (CNGs), Ango Abdullahi, chairman of the forum, asked herdsmen to leave the region if their safety is no longer guaranteed.
“If it is indeed true that their safety is not guaranteed in the places where they are residing, we would rather have them back into areas where their safety is guaranteed, and they should be coming back as much as possible to the north,” he said.
Reacting in a post on Twitter, Nnamdi Kanu stated that the south resolve to free the oppressed must not be underestimated.
The pro-Biafra activist said: “On behalf of the great IPOB family worldwide, I welcome the decision by Fulani feudal lords to recall their terror cells back to the north.
“Our mood & determination here in the south has changed irrevocably. Our resolve to free the oppressed must not be underestimated.”
