Onitsha – A group, the Biafra Independent Movement (BIM), has warned South East Governors against apportioning land for the proposed Cattle Colony in the zone, saying this would amount to putting Biafrans Igbo under Fulani Herdsmen siege.
The group vowed that moves to actualize the plan will be resisted on all lands belonging to the Igbos.
BIM in a statement titled: “Biafra Independent Movement Says No To Cattle Colony In South East and Any Biafra Land” issued by its Anambra North Coordinator, Chief Vincent Iloh, said “Providing land for the Nigerian Federal Government proposed ‘Cattle Colony’ will be tantamount to putting Biafrans under Fulani herdsmen siege and perpetual enslavement of Biafra people of Igbo land.”
“The Fulani herdsmen have been terrorizing the people of South East and other states of Nigeria, when they have no place called their own in such states one will then imagine what they will do when lands are provided for them to establish Cattle Colony, only God will save the people of the state they will occupy.
“Giving them Cattle Colony will amount to giving them take-off points for unleashing more terror on Nigerians. We are waiting for the South East Governor that will provide land for the proposed Cattle Colony and we will make such Governor realize that he did not elect himself.
“We will resist such Governor with our lives, we will not keep quiet while the lives of our people are put into jeopardy, no South East Governor will have his way in providing such land for killing our people and putting them in perpetual fear over their lives.
