Biafra Nations League, BNL has warned that the forceful takeover of land belonging to the Abba clan in Nwangele Local Government Area of Imo State to establish Ruga settlement will be resisted.
The National Leader of BNL, Princewill Chimezie Richard, who spoke with newsmen in Owerri, Imo State on Friday, accused the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma of secretly working with some persons in the four autonomous communities in Abba to give out the land for Ruga.
Richard warned that the use of force to acquire lands for Fulani people will lead to bloodshed as the people of the town are ready to fight to protect their culture and inheritance.
‘I will not accept that nonsense, it happened in many towns and we resisted, it cannot happen in my own town, never,’ Richard who hails from Abba said.
‘We rather die while defending our inheritance than allow enemies to defile our land.’
‘We have nothing in common with Fulani and so we cannot live together with them’.
