The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and director of Radio Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has on his Facebook Page and Twitter handle, sternly warned Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), against unguided utterances within Biafraland. This warning came on the heels of the group’s boasting about its plan to deploy its foot soldiers into the South-East region for the protection of the marauding Fulani herdsmen.
Miyetti Allah’s leadership said: “We will deploy five thousand (5,000) foot soldiers to protect herdsmen in the South-East”. The IPOB leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu issued the warning to them, to be careful with their utterances to avoid invoking the anger of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and the Eastern Security Network (ESN). He said: “Miyetti Allah and it’s terrorists should know that they should not play God forever. They are trying to provoke IPOB and ESN to take a drastic action. They (IPOB and ESN), are running out of patience with these insults. Miyetti Allah and its terrorists should retrace their steps now! Let them come, we are waiting for them. Soon, they will see ESN in the North”, Kanu conclusively warned.
It should be recalled that Miyetti Allah had in the year 2019, boasted that it will make provision of security operatives in the South-East region to protect and guide the activities of the Fulani herdsmen. This group which is an Association of Fulani Cattle Breeders in Nigeria, sometimes pleasurably referred to as MACBAN, clearly stands out as an advocacy group saddled with the sole responsibility of promoting the welfare of Fulani herdsmen in the country.
According to its leadership, the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), has as its goal, as an umbrella organization of all Fulani herdsmen, their overall interest and well-being within the country. Their activities further involve liaising with the Nigerian government on behalf of pastoralists on issues bordering on land use rights, nomadic education and conflict resolution between members and farmers. The group supports the protection and increased grazing reserves for cattle breeders in the country.
However, not all pastoralists have the intention of staying within the grazing reserves and so, this organization makes provision of needed information to ably convince sceptics among the nomads into compliance. As a major promoter of their welfare, increased incidents of farmers/herders’ conflicts and cattle rustling since 2011, according to them, have been brought to the barest minimum which unlike what previously obtained, have given members wider consciousness.
Recall too that these Fulani herdsmen according to Global Terrorist Index were ranked the fourth (4th) most deadliest terrorists group. So Miyetti Allah is a known sponsor group of all Fulani terror organizations. They brazenly traverse everywhere with high grade weapons without being accosted by the Nigerian armed forces. They kill, maim, rape and destroy with reckless abandon. They are being treated as the untouchables by even the Nigerian government that has undeniably, been giving them, all needed support.
