IPOB PRESS RELEASE
December 27 2022 | IPOB
The attention of the global movement and family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) under the command and leadership of our great leader Mazi Nnamdi KANU has been drawn to the laughable disgraceful comment from the impostor who claimed to be Buhari at the just concluded USA – Africa Summit, where he said that Fulani Terrorist attacks in Nigeria are caused by Climate Change. Buhari claimed to be a retired Major General, a position he used in deceiving the international community, especially the Americans, to see him as a man who understands security issues in the region.
It is on record that the Fulani mass movement to Southern Nigeria, particularly South East, is for land grabbing, and not because of climate change. It is an ethnic conquest agenda that the tribal and religious warlord Othman Dan Fodio started in Hausa land, Northern Nigeria in about 1804 but were stopped at the northern boundaries of the Middle Belt of Nigeria in about 1809.
How can the imposter President claim that the Fulani murderous militias that invade communities with arms and ammunition, killing and sacking communities, are doing so because of climate change?
In Nigeria, there are over 323 large, medium, and small dams in operation. About 85% of these large dams are located in the Sudano-Sahelian Region of Northern Nigeria, with 33% of the dams providing irrigation for agricultural purposes and for animal husbandry in the North. Presently, Northern Nigeria has the largest farming population of any other Regions of Nigeria, and the North is the main food supplier for the entire Nigerian population and the ECOWAS region. Therefore, the suggestion by Buhari that climate change is the reason for Fulani Herdsmen Terrorist invasions in Nigeria, is false. The mass murderers called Fulani Herdsmen are terrorists and their sponsors cannot use Climate Change as an excuse to invade Southern villages and massacre innocent people.
The USA Government assembled African countries in desperation to save a failed nation called Nigeria. The U S Government provided a platform for Buhari to demonize Southern Nigeria, especially the Eastern Region, who have been victims of a genocide sponsored by his government.
To date, Fulani terrorists have murdered thousands of innocent citizens in their native lands, and not one Fulani Terrorist is on trial for the genocide, because it is an ethnic cleansing agenda sponsored by the Fulani controlled Government of Nigeria.
It is obvious that some Organizations in the USA such as International Democratic Institute and International Republican Institute have either been misled or bought over to provide cover for Buhari to misinform the International Community, especially the US Government. We have cautioned the two US Institutes in our previous press releases to desist from further allowing themselves to be used by Buhari against IPOB, ESN, and the indigenous nations of Eastern Nigeria, especially, against the Igbo nation.
The world must know that Buhari is lying and deceiving them. Climate Change is not the cause of mass migration of Fulani Herdsmen Terrorists nor is it the cause of Fulani Herdsmen Jihadist Terrorism in Nigeria that is being falsely described as “farmers and herders clash”. There is nothing like “farmers and herders clash” arising from Climate Change. It is a lie from the pit of hell. What is happening in Nigeria is ethnic cleansing agenda which former President Obasanjo referred to as “Fulanization Agenda” taking place throughout Nigeria, but especially in the Middle Belt, the Southeast and the Southwest.
The Fulani led Government of Nigeria has armed jihadist terrorists from the Sahel to invade the rainforests of Southern Nigeria to forcefully take over the indigenous lands of all the nations in the Middle Belt, Southern Nigeria and the entire areas of the Gulf of Guinea. The Fulani Elites have not hidden their agenda. It is on record that some Fulani Groups have said publicly that the entire Nigerian land mass and resources belong to the Fulani, and they will take it by force. This Fulani led Government of Nigeria which is led by a double of late President Buhari, has been releasing arrested Boko Haram Terrorists and recruiting them into the Nigeria Military and Security Agencies to provide cover for the armed jihadists invading the country.
Biafrans have decided not to allow the Fulani to grab any inch of our land. IPOB won’t allow them to take over our ancestral land by crook, force, or deceit. IPOB remains peaceful and focused on our quest for restoration of Biafra Sovereignty. Therefore, the USA as a beacon of freedom and democracy and its organisations, should not allow themselves to become tools for another Biafra Genocide.
All we ask for is a referendum date for Biafrans to decide whether to continue as Nigerians or to have an Independent State of Biafra, not war against Nigeria.
Let everyone who is remotely interested in Nigeria bear in mind that IPOB will never stop this quest for Freedom irrespective of gang-ups, blackmail, persecutions, and forceful abductions until we are given the opportunity to self-determine our future through a UN supervised Referendum.
