Why We Banned Fulani Cattle In South-East — IPOB

Listen to article

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), has provided further clarifications over its decision to ban the consumption of beef from Fulani cattle in South-East.

The Eastern Updates recalls that IPOB, had in a statement on Monday, 3 January, by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, revealed that the ban would take effect from April, 2022.

Following this development, a group under the auspices of Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) through its Spokesperson, Abdul-Azeez Suleiman, described IPOB’s directive as ‘a grave provocation and serious threat to northern commercial interests in the South-East and by extension, to the physical wellbeing of Northerners living as minorities among Igbo communities’.

The CNG, therefore, called for a total boycott of all businesses operated by the Igbo all over the North with immediate effect.

Reacting, IPOB in a statement forwarded to Vanguard Monday, by its spokesperson, Emma Powerful, said; ‘We did not ban cow meats but those cows that were destroying our farms and those raping our mothers, wives and sisters in the farms, Biafrans can foreign cows not the ones that can bring terrorists in our territories’.

The group further condemned the comment made by the Northern groups saying ‘the CNG should have first questioned some herdsmen on why they have s3x with cows, film such abominable act by themselves and post the video to the world. What is the reason for such beastly behaviour? Who do they want to hypnotise?’

Why is it that the Northern coalition never cautioned their people to stop sleeping with cows and sell the defiled animals for people to eat?’

‘The baseless claim by Northern coalition group and Arewa youth groups that IPOB has declared war against the North cannot fly because they started it by destroying archole and hotels belonging to Igbo people in the North while it does not belong to the fulani only.

‘IPOB is wise and knowledgeable enough to know what it means to declare war. We are, and remain a peaceful movement,’ IPOB added.

Meanwhile, the secessionist group have accused saboteurs and traitors within its ranks of being responsible for President Muhammadu Buhari’s refusal to release its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
