IPoB rejects planned establishment of cattle ranch in Enugu

Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has warned Governor Peter Mba of Enugu State against his plans to establish cattle ranch at Nimbo in Uzowani community of Enugu State for Fulanis.

IPOB advised Governor  Mba to stop his sellout plans to bring the murderous jihadist Fulanis to Nimbo community.

IPOB in a statement on Monday, by its Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, said:

“Subsequent to the plans by Governor Mba to establish cattle ranch at Nimbo in Uzowani community of Enugu State, IPOB led by the great and indefatigable leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu hereby advises Governor Mba to stop his sellout plans to bring the murderous jihadist Fulanis to Nimbo community.

“Our people should recall that IPOB released a statement last November 2023, raising an alarm over plans by Governor Mba to sell some community’s land to Fulani bandits to establish RUGA in return for political favours.

“The Enugu State government, in connivance with some community leaders, has mapped out some community’s land to be sold to Fulanis.

“The names of the community leaders in such connivance will be made public soon.

“Enugu State citizens must know about the arrangements of Dr. Mba in giving away their ancestral lands to the murderous bandits for his political interests and compensation.

“IPOB is monitoring Governor Mba and his collaborators. They should understand that IPOB will not allow the establishment of any murderous camp for jihadist Fulanis in the name of cattle ranch anywhere in Enugu State.

“If Governor Mba is genuinely interested in establishing a cattle ranch in Enugu State, such ranch must be managed privately by an Igbo businessman.

“Only Ndigbo are allowed to own cattle ranches anywhere in Igbo land. We don’t want to have murderous Fulanis operating any cattle ranch in AlaiIgbo.

“Governor Mba should not allow what happened at Eha Mufu two years ago to repeat itself because of his need to chase a political cloud.

“The governor should understand that IPOB is not joking. We must chase away murderous Fulani jihadist herdsmen anywhere they are seen in the South East Region.

“If Fulani herdsmen has paid Dr. Mba or any Traditional Leader for any parcel of Land in Enugu State, they should better go and collect their money back.

“Dear Dr. Mba, if you want to have a smooth and peaceful regime in Enugu State, you must jettison the idea of establishing a Fulani cattle ranch in the state.

“ESN must be on an alert and wait for an order from the IPOB leadership to move into Nimbo community in Uzowani.

“We call on the community youths, community groups, and Enugu citizens to provide IPOB/ESN with any information of any proposed site for Fulani camp or ranch anywhere around Uzowani.

“ESN will stop at nothing to ensure that Peter Mba and his government don’t establish RUGA in any part of Enugu State.

“We are also informing South East governors to shun any idea of establishing cattle ranch in any state in the South East region. IPOB and ESN operatives won’t allow any establishment of Fulani camp in the name of cattle ranch in any state in the Biafra territory,” it added.
