We have watched with restrained patience, the reckless and irresponsible utterances of the so-called Fulani Jihadists and the Miyetti Allah, who believe that they own Nigeria from the North to the sea, and therefore, have the impunity to warn the State Governments, particularly the Delta State Government and Governor to withdraw, within 72 hours, his decision against open grazing, recently taken by the 17 Governors of the South, in a meeting held in Asaba.

We have decided to issue this advice and warning to the Federal Government and the Fulani Jihadists that the people of the Niger Delta will resist in such a way that will make it definitely impossible for the Federal Government security forces to cope with, should this action escalate.

We are reacting because this is not the first time Fulanis and their collaborators have insulted our people. It will be remembered that sometime in 2009, a Legislature from Kebbi State in the National Assembly asked the Federal Government to resettle the people of the Niger Delta in another territory to create a conducive and unhindered atmosphere for the oil companies to operate.

That we warn, the resulting consequences will be very unpleasant to them. The Federal Government has continuously condoned them and behaving as if the Federal Government is the one giving support to these Fulani Jihadists and the Miyetti Allah because what is happening today in Nigeria, which has resulted in unprecedented insecurity and bad governance in Nigeria, will be worse, if they are not called to order by the Federal Government within the shortest time possible.

In 2014, during the National Conference, some Northerners made a very offending and provocative statements that the entire country belongs to them. This statement was made by a highly educated person, Dr. Usman Bugaji. This made the Delegates of the Niger Delta to issue a statement of about 17 pages, that they will break away or that they will seek for self determination if the arrogance and meanness of these Fulanis continue. As the Leader of the South-South Delegates to the Conference and in the interest of peace and continuance of the Conference, I immediately rose up to the occasion. I publicly disowned the document on the floor of the Conference. I remember His Royal Majesty, the Lamido of Adamawa, commended me for that statement when he was introduced to me by a former Minister of Defence in Jonathan’s government, Dr. Bello Alero. The Lamido Adamawa, told me that I had saved the country.

For some Fulani Jihadists to issue such insulting and provocative 72 hours’ notice to the Governor of Delta State, without the Federal Government and the elders of northern extraction, ever calling them to order, is most disappointing, considering that the same Northern elders were quick to accuse Igbo leaders of not publicly condemning IPOB. Such impudence of the Fulani Jihadists will no longer be tolerated. They even claimed responsibility for the burning/bombing of the Secretariat in Asaba which also houses the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) Office
