The Indigenous Communities of Biafra (IPOB) advised people in the South-East on Wednesday not to sell their property to the government and Fulani agents for supposed agricultural reasons.

According to IPOB, Fulanis acquire estates in the name of agriculture but allow terrorists to attack the South-East.

IPOB spokesman Emma Powerful warned that anyone caught in the act will forfeit the land permanently.

A statement by Powerful reads partly: “The global movement and noble family of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ably led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu who is illegally detained in the DSS custody and solitary confinement in Abuja wish to remind Biafrans, friends of Biafra, Lovers of Biafra freedom, all the Traditional Rulers and President-General in Biafraland to desist from any plan or pressure to either sell or hand over our ancestral lands to any government or Fulani agents for any purported agricultural purposes or anything else.

“This warning has become very necessary and is mainly for all Igbo Traditional Rulers, Politicians, Real Estate Agencies, and other political jobbers in Biafraland to desist from any attempt to secretly allocate community lands to Fulani herdsmen in the name of Agricultural investment or any project.

“The marauding Fulanis are not coming for any agricultural business but rather to occupy the land with their cattle and subsequently invite their terrorist relatives from the Sahel to occupy our ancestral lands in their land grabbing agenda.

“Anyone after these warnings that goes ahead to sell lands to these invaders, and we get wind of it, should bear it in mind that we cannot allow Fulanis or their agents to operate on such land. The owner of the sold land will forfeit that land forever.

“If you have any ongoing negotiations on land sale to Fulanis or their cronies, we advise you to cease forthwith with such arrangements. We cannot hand over our ancestral lands to Fulani invaders whose agenda is land grabbing in disguise and violent takeover in future.”
