Ruga: Uwazuruike Blasts Ohanaeze 'Urging Igbos To Defend Themselves, Cowardice' by Calculating: 1:22am On Jul 11
The call by Ohanaeze Ndigbo to citizens of South-East region to defend themselves has been described as cowardice.

This is coming from Ralph Uwazuruike, leader of Biafra Independence Movement (BIM).

Ohanaeze, the socio-cultural group representing the people of the Igbo predominantly area had urged those from the geo-political zone living outside the region to defend themselves from any form of attack.



The call followed the 30-day ultimatum by Northern youth groups to unleash mayhem on those whose state governors rejected the implementation of Rural Grazing Areas (RUGA) for herdsmen of the Fulani extraction in their domain.

Kicking against the call for defense, Uwazuruike described Ohanaeze and state governors from the region as the problem of the people.

In a video seen by TODAY POLITICS, the secessionist leader, whose group seeks the dissolution of Nigeria, said the people need to be armed before an order for defense is made.

He spoke in Igbo language while relaxing in a conducive environment, urging his kinsmen not to heed the call for self defense.

“Defend yourselves is an act of cowardice,” he interjectly said in English, adding that, “I mean…I don’t know how to describe it…as in what?”

Uwazuruike who described the youth groups that issued the threat as kids said consultations with stakeholders must be made before the call of such magnitude from Ohanaeze is made.

The founder of the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) urged Ohanaeze to learn from other ethnic groups and stop disgracing and installing fears in the minds of the Igbos residing in other parts of the country.

President Muhammadu Buhari had approved the implementation of the initiative as the permanent solution to farmers and herders clashes.

Mr Buhari later suspended the project said to be optional, due to its rejection in the South despite interested states welcoming it in the North. This further fuelled speculations that the government is on a land grabbing mission for herdsmen from the Fulani extraction.

Ignore that saboteur.

He is against the move by Igbos to mobilize money to defend ourselves.

What kind of person say such a thing in this dangerous times.

If we Igbos do not prepare ourselves for war, then we have no one to blame but ourselves if we end up been wiped out.

he made point saboteur or not. which arms and ammunition will Igbo used to resist the oppressor, you think if everyone was armed in the civil war Nigeria govt we succeed easily?


these miscreants obviously are backed by a strong authority, so telling Igbo to defend themselves without providing them useful arms is just like endangering them to easy defeat war


another point he made was you don't disseminate any defence news to public, prepare and keep it in your mind


we must always reason before action because of those innocents and helpless kids that might be a victim

1) How do you expect our people to be armed if mobilization for finance in order to acquire arms is not made public.?

2) Who and who will know that there is contribution going on to defend our homeland if it is made secret.?

3) How much cash do you think they can mobilize if they keep the contribution secret.?

Remember, this is not anti riot mobilization we tend to have in the North but a full scale War Mobilization to defend our homeland.

saboteur!
treacherous!.
Judas Iscaigboman he is indeed,
that we know.
there is sense in arming yourself before you can defend yourself very well.
however, there is no cowardice in the statement of Ohanaeze Ndigbo to defend ourselves.

I strongly diagree with this RUGA thing..one question i ask is this'must cattle rearing be about moving from one place to another why cant the fulanis remain in one place.western countries even have more beef supply than we do,yet we dont hear about movin cows from place to place..i think method of rearin n breedin cows from this regions should b copied...southerners please reject n disgard this RUGA movement..its will only bring conflict n wars in years to comes.
