The head of the Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has responded to the request by the Northern Elders’ Forum (NEF) for herdsmen to leave the Southern part of Nigeria.
The Northern Elders’ Forum (NEF) had asked Fulani herders to leave the Southern part of the country if the protection of their lives and property are not guaranteed.
The Chairman of the forum, Prof. Ango Abdullahi, who stated this at a news conference in Abuja on Tuesday, declared that there was a move by some trouble elements to attack herders in violence in the Southern part of the country.
“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.”
Nnamdi Kanu while reacting to the news via his twitter page 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.
