Tension as Fulani ‘refugees’ arrive in Anambra community

Fulani
Palpable tension has gripped residents of Igbo-Ukwu community in Aguata Council area in Anambra State, as over 100 strangers believed to be Fulani migrants arrived the area in the early hours of Monday.

It was gathered that the suspected refugees were seen trooping into the community for their safety, having fled Enugu State for fear of being attacked by irate youths.

However, it was not immediately ascertained if they were herdsmen.

It was further gathered that the alleged refugees, who arrived with their families and personal belongings, had moved straight to Hausa/Fulani community in the area, where their members received them.

But the traditional ruler of Igbo-Ukwu community, Igwe Martin Ezeh, Idu II, who confirmed the development yesterday, told newsmen that he had personally visited them, spoken with their leaders and assured them of their safety in the community, provided they would not cause trouble.

The monarch advised his subjects to accommodate the them in the spirit of one Nigeria.
“It is not the custom in Igboland to chase out someone who runs to you for safety, it would only be a different thing if the stranger elements later constitutes a security risk to the host community,” he said.

While Igwe Ezeh said he believed in unity in diversity, he urged all the ethnic nationalities in Nigeria to see each other as one, believing it is the only panacea to lasting peace in the country.

He also identified tribal sentiment as the bane of peace and national integration, which must be eschewed.

Coming hard on agitators, including the Book Haram, Indigenous People of Biafra, and Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra or any other self-actualization group, he described their demand as unrealistic, insisting that such will not help us.

    Igwe with due respect if it’s not a concurted story as par 1 nigeria nonsense we Biafran youths disagree with you. You believe in unity of Sharia law or Constitutional and autonomes laws? As for we Biafrans we believe in constitutional law as the first democratic tribe in Africa as our autonomous law and governance bias us witness. We the Biafran youths will be glad if you can move you and your family to the north for your so called panacea and leave us Biafrans alone. We are tired of all this 1 nigeria nonsense and tired of loosing our loved ones in the hand of these animals in the name of 1 nigeria. Igwe, continue to inhabited a wild beast in your community until they separate your head and the head of your grand children from the rest of their body. Igwe, if this is not a concurted story, Allyling IPOB, Massob with Boko Haram means that you are some how out of yours senses and needs urgent medical attention, you are a saboteur and a marchant of misery who did not have the love of our dead ones at heart. The red cap era has gone, as a cultural man, I don’t need to remind you that our culture made us to know that respect is accord to whom that merits respect, watch your words because we can never tolerate nonsense from you marchants of misery and your like should not expect any respect from the Biafran youths. When the hausa-fulani are slaughtering our people in the north, did their Alhaji, amir or sarduna or even custom told them not to kill our brothers and sisters, mothers and fathers? Igwe Igwe Ndi Igbo enyehi eze, the Biafran youths can never allow old red cap fools and the decendants of Ahmadu Bello to play politics with out destiny anymore, take it or leave it. Nigeria is the Estate of Uthman Dan Fodio and we the Biafran people are not part of it because Biafra is there before Uthman dan fodio and Nigeria. Igwe our demand for Sovereign State of Biafra may be unrealistic for old fools redcap idiots who are not better than hausa-fulani, we the Biafran People want you to know that it’s 100% realistic legitimately according to United Nation, OAU, and nigeria law. Igwe you may have lost focus, but we all will not lost focus at the same time. we think you need your grand children to update you. Biafra will help us and our unborn generation than how nigeria, devil entity, a child that refuse to grow, evil forest, abysall corrupt entity may help us. Biafra will help us than mixing with decendant of northern islamist extremist terrorist and the conspirators from the S-west in this nonsense 1 nigeria. I love the hausa-fulani elites than the Igbo fools that call themselves elites, can you people see how hausa-fulani’s are protecting their people publicly in the face worrsome crime and atrocities. We Biafran youths wish that old fools of your likes will learn lession from the norther elite ways of protecting their primogeniture terrorits. Igwe you are talking about 1 nigeria, have you ever take your time to reason and ask yourself, if these decendants of islamist extremist terrorist have 1 nigeria at heart, why did they want and establish Sharia in all the northern state? Don’t tell us that it’s there religion because they are not the only muslims in this west africa and where have you see Sharia law work side by side with Constitutional law except in this janbori field of hausa’s and normadic fulani’s call nizooria. Igwe so you did not see anything wrong about it abi? Don’t bring calamity upon you and your family and community because when this rain will start it will beat the sheeps and the shepherds. 1 nigeria means death and it will be better for us to die for a noble cause than to die wrongfully in the hand of hausa-fulani and yoruba conspirators. All we want is Biafra nothing more, nothing less.
