*Tells Youruba nation, ‘It’s time for action not empty threats’
* Predicts more woes unless Yoruba, Middle Belt youths join agitation for self rule
By Steve Oko
Leader of the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, has commiserated with the Yoruba nation over the gruesome murder of Funke Olasurin, daughter of the Afenifere National Leader , Pa Fasoranti by Fulani herdsmen.
The IPOB Leader in a press statement issued Saturday by his Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, however, reminded the Yoruba that it was time for action and not mere lamentations which do not move the enemies.
According to him , unless Yoruba and Middle Belt youths close ranks with IPOB in the struggle for Nigeria liberation, similar fate awaits all.
Kanu who decried the killing of the late Funke as well as the increasing attacks on innocent Nigerias by violent Fulani herdsmen said the heinous crime must not be allowed to go unpunished.
The IPOB leader said he warned the Yoruba against voting for President Muhammadu Buhari but was ignored because of Tinubu’s 2023 presidential ambition.
He urged the South and Middle Belt to unite and resist the impunity of Fulani herders and their sponsors who he alleged were on a mission to disposses indigenous Nigerias of their ancestral lands.
Below is the full text of the statement entitled :”ACTION IS BETTER THAN WORDS OF FURY”, and made available to Wawa News Global :
“ACTION IS BETTER THAN WORDS OF FURY
“The brazen terror attack on Yoruba soil by Fulani terrorists yesterday must not go unanswered. Let the murder of the daughter of Afenifere Chairman Funke Fasoranti Olakunrin by Fulani terrorists be another sombre but timely reminder to the great Yoruba race and their media in particular that supporting evil has its unintended consequences.
“I hate to say it but this sad incident goes to underscore the prediction I made long ago – that this Govt of Nigeria as constituted from 2015 is a murderous Fulani Wahabbi cabal on a Jihadi mission to terrorise, subjugate and enslave everybody unfortunate enough to be part of the British colonial experiment gone mad called Nigeria.
“I specifically warned the Yoruba race and their dominant media that supporting Fulani atrocities against Biafra and suppression of the truth about the true identity of Jubril Aminu Al-Sudani because of Tinubu’s 2023 presidential ambition will not only be counter-productive but will turn around to consume them. They called me a merchant of hate speech. Today I ask them, what is happening?
“It is unfortunate that at a time of great peril like this, weak men hand-picked by the same Fulani caliphate that are persecuting everybody today, are the ones in charge of the leadership of the South. Fulani terror will only stop when we confront them with an equal force, mere words will not do it.
“An immoral and spineless Yoruba media should shoulder the blame for the death of this prominent Yoruba daughter and the wider rampaging savagery of Fulani herdsmen across Nigeria. They failed to objectively report the truth but instead chose to malign and attack IPOB that saw the danger the country was sliding into way ahead of everybody.
“The time for the mother of all popular resistance is now not tomorrow. Only an IPOB led mass revolution will save the day because we are the only ones with a history of resistance againt the vandals from the Sahel.
“The sooner the youths of the Middle Belt and South West rise up to join IPOB to dismantle the Zoo and chart a new course for the respective ethnic nationalities that make up Nigeria, the better our chances of survival or else we are all doomed.
“Press statements and lamentations will not stop the invaders, only concrete mass action can and we are ever ready.
“COMRADE EMMA POWERFUL MEDIA AND PUBLICITY ON BEHALF OF MAZI NNAMDI KANU IPOB LEADER. “
