Prominent Yoruba Nation Leader, Chief Banji Akintoye, has said that cattle breeder association, Miyetti Allah is planning to overrun Nigeria.
The Chief who is also the chairman of the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-determination called for an end to the recent killings, adding that Miyetti Allah should be declared a ‘terrorist organization’.
Akintoye made this statement ahead of the group’s million-man freedom march scheduled to hold from 14th to 24th September 2021, at the UN Headquaters in New York, USA.
“We want an end to the ethno-religious killings in Nigeria. We want the Government of Nigeria to stop funding terrorism against us. What is happening today in Nigeria is a State-sponsored Terriorism.
“The herdsmen you see in the South and Middle-Belt today are different from the nomadic herdsmen we grew up to know. The current ones are imported members of ISIS, AL-QUAEDA, ISWAP and Boko Haram Terrorists being masqueraded as Bandits.
“By the grace of God, we shall be demanding from the world leaders to declare Miyyeti Allah as a terrorist Group. It is dangerous to safety and peace of the South and Middle-Belt people to call Miyyeti Allah a trade Union, it is a terrorist group being supported by the current Fulanised Government of Nigeria with a mission to overrun the indigenous people.
“We the Indigenous people now say enough is enough. Therefore, as the World Leaders are meeting for the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly, we want to use the opportunity to demand for a United Nations Supervised Referendums in our regions so that the indigenous people can decide on what they want for their nationhood.
“First, the fraudulent 1999 Constitution must go down. And this should happen before the 2023 General Elections”, he added.
