A coalition of cultural groups in Nigeria that was born in Abuja on Sunday under the auspices of the Ethnic Nationalities Defense Organization with the determination to protect, defend and retaliate any attack against ethnic nationalities or their territories.
The organization said it had realized since then that Boko Haram and Fulani militia were “brothers in arms against Nigeria’s ethnic nationalities in a brazen Fulani jihad land-grabbing and expansionist.”
“We call on all ethnic nationalities to form their defense groups or militia or be ready to lose their ancestral lands after being killed as cowards and chickens in the hands of either the compromised Nigerian Army or Fulani militia and terrorists.
“Ours is an eye for an eye and 10 for one. Let’s see, who has the monopoly of violence. Ours is non-negotiable until the evil against all ethnic nationalities by government and Fulani herdsmen militia is halted,” ENDO stated.
The organization, in a statement by its President, David Maiyaki, Director Information/Strategy, Freedom Musa and Director of Operations, Nehemiah Maihaikali, warned the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari “or any governor against taking or giving any inch of ethnic nationalities land for Fulani cattle ranch or grazing.”
While suggesting that they should graze in their states of origin, ENDO advised that the Minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh, should be ready to resettle in Katsina after his tenure as minister.
The statement read, “We have observed with sadness over the years and especially since the emergence of the Buhari administration the targeted annihilation of the ethnic minorities in Nigeria. We have since realized that both Boko Haram and the Fulani herdsmen militia are brothers in arms against the ethnic nationalities of Nigeria in a brazen land-grabbing and expansionist Fulani jihad.
“It is evident that Boko Haram and Fulani militia have not only infiltrated the government of Nigeria, but the government is directly or indirectly aiding and supporting daily evil perpetrated against the ethnic nationalities.
“Government’s rebranding of terrorist and Fulani militia as hoodlums or criminal elements does not change who truly they are. There is evidence of military killer squads targeting ethnic nationalities apart from the recycling of released terrorists into the Nigerian security or Fulani militia.
“No matter how much you give the terrorists from our sovereign wealth to arm their armory and mercenaries, they can never take our ancestral land and each of you will pay.”
