The Movement for the Actualization of Sovereign State of Biafra, MASSOB, has warned soldiers against molesting and intimidating Ndigbo while providing cover to Fulani herdsmen, who it alleged were using their cattle to destroy farmlands and crops.
The national director of information of the Uchenna Madu-led faction of MASSOB, Mr. Samuel Edeson, gave the warning yesterday.
According to Edeson, the activities of the herdsmen were part of the alleged grand design to Islamise Nigeria.
He said: “MASSOB warns Nigerian Army to stop intimidating and killing the people of Biafra in the guise of protecting the Fulani herdsmen and their cattle.
“MASSOB advise South-East governors to encourage community-based vigilante groups for proper and well-coordinated security of lives, properties and farmlands”.
