MASSOB Hails Abia, Anambra For Rejecting Cattle Colonies
The Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra has commended Anambra and Abia states for rejecting the Federal Government’s proposal for the establishment of cattle colonies.
Describing the proposal as anti-people, MASSOB commended the governors of the two states, Willie Obiano (Anambra) and Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), for their courage.
A statement by the MASSOB leader, Uchenna Madu, said, “We salute the courageous spirit of the governors for opposing the anti-peoples Federal Government policy, which only favours the Fulani and their cows.”
The group insisted that allowing the establishment of “colonial village for Fulani herdsmen and their cows simply means allowing a known enemy to dine and sleep with a hated opponent.”
The statement partly read, “It will not be far-fetched to conclude that the Fulani herdsmen and their kinsmen are pawns in an agenda to overrun all towns in Nigeria.
“So that soon, we will have emirs in Owerri, Enugu, Benin, Agatu, Wukari, Abeokuta and other towns where the Federal Government is planning to create grazing colonies for Fulani herdsmen.”
