Kill Idea Of Fulani Cattle Ranch In Enugu, Other South-East States, IPOB Warns

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) has warned Enugu State’s Governor Peter Mbah to kill his purported scheme to establish a cattle ranch at Nimbo in the Uzowani area.

IPOB said neither Enugu nor any other Igbo state would be allowed to house ranches for Fulani herdsmen.

The separatist Biafran group, in a statement by its spokesman, Emma Powerful, on Monday, said that it would reject any such plan by the Enugu or any South-East Governor as it portended grave danger from Fulani herdsmen who would converge on the region.

IPOB suggested that any cattle ranch in Enugu State must be managed privately by an indigenous businessman.

The statement read, “Subsequent to the plans by the Enugu State Governor, Peter Mbah, to establish cattle ranch at Nimbo in Uzowani community of Enugu State, we, the global family IPOB, hereby advise Mbah to stop his sellout plans to bring the cattle ranch to Nimbo Community.

“Our people should recall that IPOB released a press statement last November 2023, raising an alarm over plans by Mbah to sell some community’s land to Fulani herdsmen to establish RUGA in return for political favours.

“The Enugu State government, in connivance with some community leaders, have mapped out some community’s land to be sold to Fulanis. The names of the community leaders in such connivance will be made public soon.

“Enugu State citizens must know about the arrangements of Mbah in giving away their ancestral lands to him for his political interests and compensation.”

IPOB said Mbah and his collaborators would not be allowed to establish any cattle ranch anywhere in Enugu State.

“If Mbah is genuinely interested in establishing a cattle ranch in Enugu State, such ranch must be managed privately by an indigenous businessman,” the statement added.

“Only Ndigbo are allowed to own cattle ranches anywhere in Igbo land. We don’t want to have non-indigenes operating any cattle ranch in Igbo land.

“Mbah should not allow what happened at Eha Mufu two years ago to repeat itself because of his need to chase a political clout. The governor should understand that IPOB is not joking.

“Mbah, if you want to have a smooth and peaceful regime in Enugu State, you must jettison the idea of establishing a Fulani cattle ranch in the state….

“We call on the community youths, community groups, and Enugu citizens to provide IPOB/ESN with any information of any proposed site for camp or ranch anywhere around Uzowani. ESN will stop at nothing to ensure that Peter Mbah and his government don’t establish RUGA in any part of Enugu State.

“We are also informing South-East governors to shun any idea of establishing cattle ranchs in any state in the South-East Region. IPOB and ESN operatives won’t allow any establishment of any camp in the name of cattle ranch in any state in the Biafra territory.”
