The Igbo National Council, INC,which is a socio-political organisation having branches in all the South Eastern States, have berated the President Buhari-led Federal Government of Nigeria on its poor handling of the security challenges which are ravaging the different parts of the country.
The National President of the group, Comrade Chilos Godsent, had in a statement which was signed and made available to men of the press on Tuesday morning, went hard on the Buhari administration as well as the heads of the security agencies over the way “they were pampering the terrorist group called Miyetti Allah”, DAILY POST reports.
Excerpts from the statement says:
“With recent inflammatory statements and hate speeches credited to the leadership of the Miyetti Allah, against the Igbo race in Nigeria since the formal inauguration swearing-in of President Muhammadu Buhari for his second term, it has become very necessary that the federal government of Nigeria declare Miyetti Allah, a terrorist organization and immediately order the Inspector General of Police to arrest and prosecute them with immediate effects as their statement to attack and invade the South East region of Nigeria is capable of igniting an ethnic war.
“The Igbo National Council,(INC), will take every proactive step to resist and defend the igbo territories against any form of attack, aggression or invasion by group in whatever disguise or name. The orchestrated unholy conspiracies and gang up against the igbo race in Nigeria must be put to stop”.
It will be recalled that DAILY POST had earlier reported that the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, had made a denial of the recent reports in which it was quoted as making threats to attack the five south eastern states soon due to the purported stubbornness of their State Governors.
AIhaji Gidado Sidikki, the Chairman of the group in the south-east, had briefed men of the press in the Anambra State capital Awka during a short prayer to celebrate the Eid-el-fitr celebration for Muslims in the city. Alhaji Gidado had said that the statements which were credited to him that the herders would attack the South East states were nothing but outright lies.
