The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has responded to Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN)’ claim that they were in the South-East just for business interest.
IPOB on Thursday, September 17, 2020, rejected Miyetti Allah and their business. In a statement by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said that Miyetti Allah and their business interests, including their foot soldiers are not welcomed in Biafra land.
He said that he found it amusing to believe that Miyetti Allah has purely business interest in Biafraland if not the business that leads to loss of lives and sacking of indigenes.
The statement read: “The attention of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has been drawn to the deceptive statement credited to Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, that they are solely concerned about their business interests in the East and not motivated by their age-long territorial expansionism.
“Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders can deceive their fellow Nigerians with their gimmicks and antics. But we IPOB are smarter than them any time any day. We are working night and day tirelessly, to protect our people regardless of human and material costs. We, therefore, warn Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, to stay away from Biafraland.
“We don’t need them and their investment including their footsoldiers— herdsmen, bandits, terrorists, ISWAP, and others. They should all steer clear of Biafraland before it’s too late. We are alert and monitoring and watching any step they will dare to make into Biafraland.
“Biafraland cannot harbour bloodsuckers masquerading as herders. We can no longer sit idly by and watch them spill innocent blood under whatever guise, raid communities without provocation, maim and rape our mothers and daughters, or destroy our crops and farmlands.
“Nigerian government, security agencies, and Miyetti Allah are all working together to soften the ground for terrorists’ take over of homelands of indigenous people the British experimentally lumped together into Nigeria.”
