Headers Attacks in Biafra Land and What is Expected by the People

May 3, 2019

By Okoafor Odinaka | For Biafra Writers

The Fulani's are nomads who infiltrated Nigeria from Senegal, Guinea, Egypt, and Sudan, bearing Othman Danfodio’s template.

They first settled in the northern part of Nigeria, gradually spreading like ants to other parts of the country. When they came to settle in Biafra land, Biafrans being receptive in nature, accepted them, not knowing the Fulani came to conquer and dominate. And even to exterminate their host communities. In their craftiness the Fulani would offer the chiefs and politicians cows and monetary gifts, watering their hearts and ceiling their lips. 

The Fulani in their conquering and land-grabbing crusade, masquerading as herdsmen, struck Nimbo in Enugwu North, in April 2016, killing over two hundred and fifty villagers. The people of Imufu, Affa, and Akwuke – all in Enugwu state – have suffered and are still suffering the same fate.

In Anambra, Umumbo community has been crying out to the executive governor of the state, Willie Obiano, to rescue them from the menace of Fulani herdsmen. The people have been so dealt with that they no longer go to the farm. Sad enough, nobody seems to be giving them ears.
The situation is no better in other parts of Biafra land: Delta, Imo, Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Cross Rivers, Abia, and Ebonyi state. Everywhere it is the same tale of bloodshed by the marauding Fulani herders. Our docile political leaders seem to be mindful of their pocket alone, the people’s security meaning nothing to them.

It is really sad that our politicians cannot protect those on whose mandate they rose to great political heights. We call on international community to come to our rescue. Biafrans are endangered in the Nigerian state.
