Latest information reaching Biafra Writers Forum details that the Fulani oligarchy is mounting serious pressure on the vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi to show commitment to their cause by renouncing Biafra in an elaborate oath-taking event before Fulani leaders. This was revealed as part of the reason his bank accounts and that of his wife and son were recently frozen.
Our source described it as the strongest arm-twisting act the oligarchy has employed so far to make him pledge his loyalty to the oligarchy by accepting to be turbaned by the Sultan of Sokoto. According to our source, all other means through which this was communicated to him previously were rebuffed by Obi.
Our correspondents were informed that the oligarchy were all aware that Obi had worked for their interest in the past against the Biafra agitation when he was Anambra State governor. Then, as a governor, Obi had backed Nigerian military and police to kill Biafran youths and dump their bodies in Ezu River. However, they are still skeptical of him because of his beer brand (Hero), which carries the Biafra legend (the Rising Sun).
Even though Obi owns the biggest shopping mall in Abuja, the Northerners were said to be still harbouring fears that Obi may ditch them at the last minute and begin to work for the Biafra agenda.
Usually, what the Fulani oligarchy do is to bring southern candidates they hope to rig into power, and have them make commitment under oath that they would be in office only to do their bidding. This is usually done during their turbaning exercise, which they are trying to compel Obi to come and perform.
