The leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, has said that the Hausa people have displayed civility in dealings with the Igbo people.
He however said that it is the Fulani people that have been giving problems to the Igbo people and other tribes in Nigeria.
Mr Kanu made the assertion in a statement entitled ‘They are scared ain’t they? Listen to them. IPOB is a monster!’, issued on Tuesday through the IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful.
According to him, the Fulani people now want to bring in Hausa people into the problems they allegedly created in Nigeria, with the term ‘Hausa-Fulani’.
The IPOB leader, therefore, called on the Hausa people not to allow anybody drag them into the problems allegedly created by Fulani people.
He said: “Since 2015 all we have been hearing is Fulani this Fulani that, but due to the heat coming from God’s chosen Children of Light, IPOB, they have resorted to their usual deceptive Hausa-Fulani combo in the hope of hiding under the usually civil and well behaved Hausa to evade the wrath of the people.
“No wonder they hastily resorted to mouthing their usual nonsensical Hausa-Fulani overnight.
“I wish to place it on record and for their, Fulani information, that we Biafrans have nothing against Hausa people. Hausas are people I respect and admire immensely. Hausa in the main good people.
“That was why we Biafrans elected a Hausa man twice to be our Mayor in Enugu, yes twice. They won’t tell you that, would they?
“The problem of Nigeria is Fulani people with their conquistadorial mentality. The only thing standing between these Fulani herdsmen and their total conquest of Nigeria is the IPOB.
“Again, listen to this man very carefully to confirm that only IPOB is the saviour of indigenous populations in Nigeria and that is why IPOB is the only entity these killer and terrorist herdsmen, the caliphatarians are afraid of.
“One day, Nigerians will come to appreciate the fact that it was IPOB that saved all of them at the hands of these people from the foothills of the Futa Jallon.”
“Without apologies, Eastern Security Network ESN, has forever come to stay, and we do not owe anybody any explanation on it.”
