MASSOB Justifies Herdsmen Killings In Benue, Taraba, Says It’s Payback Time by sirequity(m): 9:43am On Jan 15, 2018
THE Movement for the Actualisation of Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) has justified the recent killings of residents of Benue and Taraba States by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

It described the incidents as a payback time saying this is why it is not sympathizing with the two states.

The movement said it’s reason is based on the facts that the states connived with the Hausa/Fulani to kill its Igbo extraction during the civil war.



MASSOB Director of Information, Sunny Okereafor on Sunday said, “This is just pay back time for them and this is just the beginning. All those who took part in the unjust killing of the Igbo from 1967 to 1970 will have no peace until they apologise for their misdeed”, he was quoted by Sun Newspaper to have said.

The organisation also warned against the establishment of cattle colonies in parts of South East.

It said intelligence gathering revealed that some state governors and traditional rulers from the zone were negotiating to give out some portions of its land to Fulani herdsmen, promising to employ every available civilized means to ensure no portion of land in the region was given out for cattle colonies.

MASSOB said it is a known fact that the North has large expanse of land, far more than the South East, adding that it would be callousness for anybody to contemplate to cede any portion of the little land, that is not even enough for the Igbo to do their farming, to Fulani herdsmen.

“Anybody doing this dangerous negotiation should be aware of the consequences of giving out Biafraland to Fulani herdsmen, which we see as abomination, and which not only them will pay for, but, also, their children’s children,” Okereafor warned.

HEADLINE reports that one among the South East States has already rejected the proposed plan for the establishment of cattle colonies in it domain.

One of such state is Abia State which cited unavailability of land and civil disorder as reasons behind their rejection.

Benue loved Buhari and his Fulani herdsmen, yet they were treated like poo. I wonder what he will do to our neighbours in the West. They are obssesed with licking his balls now, I pray they Receive sense.

Okay.

We now know why some "human beings" have been doing thanksgiving all these while.

But let that hypocritic impression of being sympathetic with the slain ones be stopped henceforth.

For once I agree with you.
This report left a sour taste in my taste buds. The statement by the massob spokesperson is as callous as it is uncalled for. An entire generation has passed away since after the war.
What dismays me is how the people of Benue and some parts of the northcentral region can't seem to make up their mind about how to place its relationship with northern Nigeria.
There seem to be certain identity crisis among them, as majority of what they stand for seemed to have been imposed on them from their northern neighbours.

The north has made it clear, overtly and covertly, that theirs is to take. If you are going to relate with them peacefully, then you must be willing to give at all times, without expecting anything in return.

difference being that it is not robbed in their face that they are a defeated people through appointments,rehabilitation, reconciliation and reconstruction. the war was fought in the east and reconstruction started in the west and north even the president borrowed over $2b to reconstruct the north east and the east got none.

I am sure there won't be any reconciliation in those countries if their government is behaving like the Nigerian govt.

“Sincerely speaking, the South-East has not had a fair-share since the civil war. Their marginalization is quite obvious. But if the policy of reconstruction, reintegration and reconciliation of Gen.Gowon and the late Gen. Murtala’s administrations had continued, the agitation by the few Igbo for Biafra state would have been a thing of the past." Balarebe Musa

This organization does not represent the position of the Igbos.

The Igbos all over the world sympathise with the people of Benue at this time,and urge Pastor VP to at least speak out as he has a conscience,and try to persuade the President to ensure the Security of lives and property.

Accept our deepest condolences.

Any body who thinks a pig is sympathetic to the people of Benue or Taraba states over the spate of killings is a fool.

If there is no true repentance, there will be no forgiveness. There needs to be a real truth and reconciliation but for as long as some including the president use it as a form of threat and keep reminding others that they will receive the evil treatment they were subjected to durin the war then it means the aggressors rejoice and will repeat their dastardly actions if given the slightest opportunity. This also explains why every action of government is open to a seemingly negative interpretation by Igbos and objective Nigerians. For instance, why are the murderous herdsmen left to run free and even accorded protection by security agencies while the full power of the army with armoured tanks et al were unleashed in the East?

LOL..I no even know say their hate reach middle-belt. grin cheesy you can only imagine how much evil they wish upon Yorubas. And the fact that the evil they wish upon us ends up backfiring against them is why they loathe us so much grin The funny thing is, some of their people probably live in these states peacefully trading there. Talk about being ungrateful pieces of shxt. No one benefits from their region, while they leech off other regions. Yet, all their hosts get rewarded with is insults and hate.
