Founder of Igbo Youth Movement, IYM, and Deputy Secretary of Igbo Leaders of Thought, ILT, Evangelist Elliot Ugochukwu Uko, has reacted to rtd. Gen. T Y Danjuma’s call for self defence against incessant killing of innocent Nigerians by Fulani herdsmen.
Uko said “Danjuma’s call on Nigerians to defend themselves came very late.”
He also said Danjuma and his group should apologise to Nnamdi Kanu and the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, who had earlier made the call to deaf ears.
He said the call was what the former Defence Minister should have made “since the advent of this administration.”
In a statement on Tuesday, Uko said, “We are watching. The only thing new is that Danjuma has confirmed what everybody has suspected about the military, which is that they have been protecting the killer herdsmen.
“The call on Nigerians to defend themselves against ethnic cleansing by Fulani herdsmen is belated.
“We had known that President Buhari’s agenda in appointing his kinsmen as heads of all the security agencies in the country was to protect the killer herdsmen in the heinous crimes against humanity.
“The security architecture is to allow his Fulani people embark on their Islamic Jihad or expansionist tendencies.
“Danjuma and his group should apologise to the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who saw the emerging scenario and alerted Nigerians over the issue about four years ago.”
