Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu says the Igbo people do not have anything against the Hausa but that the Fulani pose a threat to Nigeria.
In a statement by IPOB spokesman Emma Powerful, Mr Kanu said the Fulani were trying to drag the Hausa into their alleged problems with other tribes.
Kanu 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 is 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.”
