The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB says it will chase away from Ebonyi State all members of Miyetti cattle breeders association who cause trouble for indigenes of the state.
A press release by groups spokesperson, Emma Powerful, made available to News Men in Awka stated that the group has done it before in Anambra and will not fail to replicate it in Ebonyi.
The group said it was also surprised that the governor of the state, Mr Dave Umahi was giving tacit support to the Miyetti Allah members by also recruiting local security men to protect them, but said it will soon invade the state and send away trouble making cattle herders.
Part of the statement reads, “We the global family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) wish to warn Ebonyi State Government and Bakassi boys recruited to fight IPOB, that henceforth they will be treated as agents of RUGA and enemy of the people of Biafra.
“IPOB Intelligence units on the ground continue to report the activities of this very outfit formed to provide grassroots logistical support and local intel to hordes of invading Fulani terror herdsmen in Ebonyi State raping our mothers and destroying our villages.
“Those that doubt our opposition to RUGA should ask Willie Obiano of Anambra State what became of his Miyetti Allah friends he gave land in Anam. We IPOB chased them away from Anam and all over Anambra State and our ongoing operations in Ebonyi is designed to do exactly the same.”
The group added that it is aware that Umahi had declared war on the group, but it will not be dettered and will remain determined to send all trouble-making cow herders out of Ebonyi State.
