BIAFRA: DISSOLUTION OF NIGERIA, THE ONLY ANTIDOTE TO FULANI MAYHEM — BIAFRANS TELL US CONGRESS
The attention of Biafrans under the auspices of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) worldwide, has been drawn to reports credited to the United States Department of States about the bizarre and senseless killing of innocent farmers by the Fulani killer herdsmen. These terrorists have been ravaging particularly, Biafraland and Benue State. It is this encouraging position of the United States Government that prompted a despatch of a crack team of the Family Writers Press International Media Organization based in West Africa with it’s Operational Headquarters domiciled in Nigeria, to move into the affected areas and sample opinions amongst Biafrans. The persistent dimension of the killings of these Christian farmers across many communities within Biafraland and in Benue State of Nigeria, have assumed a dangerously worrisome position, as pointedly stated by the United States Congress. All the interviewees in Biafra territories which are under the occupational government of Nigeria, posited that the only solution to this spate of Fulani orchestrated killings is outright dissolution of Nigeria.
Most of the traditional rulers interviewed by Family Writers Press Correspondents who pleaded anonymity collaborated the position of the people of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB). They detested the heinous crimes these marauding Fulani killer herdsmen (terrorists) have steadily visited the helpless and non-violent Benue indigenes with. They agreed that the only way out of this extermination drive targeted against the Tivs particularly in their ancestral homeland in Benue State, is the timely dissolution of this unholy union called Nigeria. One of the prominent Chiefs interviewed maintained that since the Nigerian government has blatantly kicked against the arrest/prosecution of the national leader of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) who proudly boasted about the continuous killings, should the state government refuse to reverse the anti-grazing law promulgated in November 2017, the Tiv people have unanimously resolved to support the outright dismemberment of Nigeria as the only window left to secure their people and their ancestral homes from Fulani invasion. He called on the US Congress to expedite legislative action that will facilitate the dissolution of the country. He stated that the body language of the Buhari led government is encouragingly aiding terrorism against the Benue indigenes.
Speaking in the same vein, another top traditional Chieftain in Idomaland, an integral part of Biafra, affirmed the position of his people for the total dissolution of Nigeria. He said that the Nigerian government has shamelessly declared that it lacked the military power to protect all the communities in the Middle Belt even as the boasting of Miyetti Allah and the killing of the people persist unabetted.
Some of the religious leaders in the state, were equally visited by the Family Writers Press Correspondents for their opinions. The clergymen whose colleagues – Reverend Fathers Joseph Gor and Felix Tyolaha, who were brutally murdered by the Fulani terrorists in Mbalom village, 17 kilometers away from Makurdi, the Benue State capital city, unmistakably supported the immediate dismemberment of Nigeria. They opined that the people of Benue can only then, be free to live and go about their normal businesses in their ancestral homeland without any fear of harassments and untimely deaths. One other clergyman who pleaded anonymity revealed to the Family Writers Press that it was through the message placed on the twitter handle on the 3rd of January 2018 by Rev. Fr. Joseph Gor, the Parish Priest of St. Ignatius Catholic Church, Mbalom, over the menace of these Fulani killer herdsmen within the vicinity where his parish is located, that made him a marked man that must be eliminated by all means available. The killing of Rev. Fr. Joseph Gor came three months, after the twitter complaints.
In Biafraland and precisely in Ebonyi State, information obtained from a traditional ruler suggests that the State Governor, Dave Umahi appears helpless in protecting the citizens of the State from the incessant attacks and killings from the Fulani herdsmen. The traditional ruler further revealed that the governor solicited during a close door meeting with them, for the best alternative measure that could be adopted for the immediate sack of the Fulani killer marauders from the State but warned that his position on the plan should not be revealed.
In the light of these revelations, the Family Writers Press would want the United States Congress to expressively formulate legislative policies that will wholesomely deal with the reign of tyranny in Nigeria since the traditional rulers, political and religious leaders can no longer free and safe to comment on the boiling issues prevalently affecting Nigeria. This is another wave of speech gagging in a supposed democracy. It therefore becomes pertinent for the Government of the United States of America to speed up legislation that will create the enabling environment for the US to override all the existing but inhibitive International protocols that are breeding impunity and oppression in Nigeria, that are embedded in the sovereignty of nations which Nigeria is ostensibly and criminally enjoying. This will automatically pave the way for the unencumbered dissolution of Nigeria for the well-being of humanity.
The US Congress should note that these Fulani killer herdsmen (terrorists’) incessant attacks and killings of the innocent and armless Biafran citizens and the Tivs of Benue State have never taken place in Sokoto, Kebbi, Katsina, Kano and Jigawa States in the Northern part of Nigeria as those locations are the exact home states of the Fulanis. The people of Biafra have unequivocally stated that the immediate dismemberment of Nigeria will usher in the return of the Fulanis back to their homes or better still limit them to the defunct Nigeria federation where they can legitimately lay claim by claim to by law, while other nations will peacefully emerge from the debris of the disintegrated enclave.
As the Government of the United States of America prepares to decisively wade into this Nigeria’s seemingly endemic disease in the nearest possible time, let the Congress also have it at back of it’s mind that the dissolution of Nigeria is the only prescribed and unavoidable antidote needed to permanently stop the killing of Christians in Nigeria.
