The Youth Council of Ohanaeze Ndigbo has backed the position of General T.Y Danjuma regarded the killings across the country. The retired general addressed the convocation crowd in Taraba State University where he urged Nigerians to defend their country.
He said the Nigerian Army was no longer neutral but were colluding with the herdsmen to carry out ethnic cleansing.
Ohanaeze has issued a statement supporting him. The Ohanaeze Ndigbo equally took a similar stance when herdsmen attacked communities in Ebonyi state.
“Hence we hereby tell Igbo youths to form rings to guide and protect their communities and farmlands and deal decisively with anybody destroying their farmlands through cow grazing and or bearing arms but he is not a known licensed security person.”
“We warn that nobody has a monopoly of violence and the Igbo nation will surely defend itself. Enough is enough. Any Armed herdsmen sighted anywhere in the South-East will have himself to blame. Arise and defend Igbo land through well-recognized vigilante groups,” stated when Fulani herdsmen attacked Ebonyi communities
“Danjuma has justified the position of Ohanaeze Youths worldwide, we will resist any attempt to forcefully Islamize our people; the herdsmen militia, we are ready to resist them.”
“How else will one justify the recent statements in the media that the government was considering amnesty for the Boko Haram terrorists? It is shocking; it is unthinkable. This is the same government that hurriedly branded the IPOB as a terrorist organization, but the same government is not courting internationally acclaimed terrorists.”
“So, nobody should expect that Ndigbo would fold their arms and these killer herdsmen come here and achieve their evil agenda. We shall resist it with the last drop of our blood.”
“We have enough men and youths that will resist them before they get into the Atlantic; we urge more Nigerians to speak up; we are proud of some governors in the South-East who have come up to defend the course of Ndigbo.”
“We have no arms anywhere but Ndigbo are emergency specialists; we have our own way of fighting our battles without rockets and guns. We repeat it shall be fire for fire.”
