Ruga: Coalition that fought Biafra in 1967 has collapsed, you can’t win any war again – Afenifere warns Northerners

Published

The socio-cultural organizations of Yoruba, Afenifere, warned its counterpart in the North, the Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, against the flames of the war flames in the country.

Afenifere stated that ACF’s support to establish settlements for Fulani herders in Nigeria was another way of calling for war. The Yoruba organization was reacting to the last position of the ACF,

where the group from the North urged those opposed to the establishment of settlements of Fulani herders, popularly called Ruga, throughout the country to withdraw their opposition and allow the policy takeoff.

Afenifere, through its spokesperson, Yinka Odumakin, told reporters that “these people are praying for war.

“They want to set fire to Nigeria, in flames. Let’s warn them loud and clear; the coalition that fought the civil war between 1967 and 1970 has collapsed forever.

“They should not think they can go to fight with anyone now and win.” We knew the history even in 1967; We know where the victory came from in that war.

“They should be careful with the way they go, they should let us live in peace and harmony based on true federalism, but if they think they can dominate the rest of the country because they have temporary power for four years, they are playing with fire.

“There was a country called the Soviet Union; there was a country called Czechoslovakia, and there was a country called Yugoslavia; those countries are no longer on today’s world map. Therefore, they should not allow that to be Nigeria’s destination along the path they are taking; You must be very careful.

“They are looking for something more, which is not in the interest of the country. To say that they want Ruga settlements to be implemented throughout the country is a declaration of war for the rest of us.

“The federal government through its body language, politics, action has become sectional and that is why these people are not happening anything in this hate speech.

“What did Nnamdi Kanu do who accused him of treason? But the government is silent when a group is threatening a section of the country because they are protesting against the cows that destroy their crops.

“Today, unfortunately, the federal government is losing its authority by allowing a group to issue threats against citizens; We are on the way to Kigali.

“This is just about conquest, domination, land grabbing and forced seizure of territory; Go back to history, the whole land Hausa today, Berom and Ilorin, never have emirs, there is not a city on earth today Hausa that the Fulani built,

but they go everywhere; Go to Zamfara, they have emirs everywhere. How they did it? “They used the religion to take the territory then, now they want to use the cattle to take over the rest of the territory of Nigeria.”
