Ogoni Leaders Cry For Help As Armed-bearing Fulani Herdsmen Occupy Farms by MyopicMods: 8:22am On Jun 29
THE Gbo Kabari Ogoni, an elite organisation of Ogoni elders in Rivers State, has raised the alarm over the invasion of Ogoni communities by armed herdsmen and their forceful occupation of farmlands with their livestock.

‘Gbo Kabari Ogoni’, which means Ogoni Elders Forum, in a statement released in Port Harcourt on Monday, titled, ‘Before we are killed again’ by its Chairman, Chief Monday Abueh, and Chairman Secretary, Desmond Nbete.

The Ogoni elders said for several weeks, the armed herdsmen had chased farmers and occupied vast areas of farmlands under effective cultivation across five communities of Khana and Eleme local government areas of the state.

The statement added that after occupying the farmlands, they graze cows on crops in the affected communities without minding, saying the action was a threat to peace and security of the area, as well as undermine the livelihood of the people and their existence.

The statement reads, “For the past weeks, armed Fulani herdsmen have occupied vast areas of farmlands under effective cultivation in the Ogoni communities of Baa Luekun, Kpaa, Seme Luekun and Dae in Khana Local Government Area and Eteo in Eleme Local Government Area of Rivers State.

The invaders, armed with sophisticated weapons, especially the dreaded AK-47, some of which are strapped to their cows, have driven away farmers from their farmlands, forcibly occupied the farmlands and are grazing their cows on cultivated crops.


“We are particularly concerned by the fact that when resisted or confronted by community leaders and representatives of our people, they have threatened mayhem and even boasted that the powers-that-be and the security agencies are aware of their presence, and would decisively deal with our people if further confronted.”

Rather than cry for help, the Ogoni leaders should treat the fulani herdsmen and their cows in the language they understand.

They should accommodate the gun wielding Herdsmen instead of crying for help.

Ogoni leaders should discuss within themselves and give them lands to settle...

And I am fully sure Wike will approve of it...

Just give them large expanse of land for settlement and all these crying will stop.

Fulani has an agenda which is to overrun Nigeria.
The indigenous hausas has been overrun remaining,some tribes in southern kaduna,Jos taraba and the entire south.
The emergence of Buhari gave them boldness to operate even in the day time.

Ipobs should defend themselves first before looking for who to defend.


Though they are currently occupied pursuing their native doctors that disappointed them.

Iberiberism chapter 1 vs 1 is when a prey keeps calling the head of its predator to save them. These cry babies never learn, continue calling on those with vested interest on how to exterminate you, to come and save you.

These people wouldn't mind criticizing Igbos and calling us land grabbers even when history does not have such record but they see their perennial slave masters as their savior. Talk about classic Stockholm syndrome!

They are likely to succeed in other areas judging from the docility and naivity being displayed by most indigenous ethnic groups but Igboland will certainly be their Waterloo.

Those close to Nnamdi Kanu should tell him to ignore all these minorities and focus on Igboland and Igbo speaking tribes that identify with us regardless of whether they are in SE, SS or MB. There is nothing these ungrateful minorities have that we don't have in abundance, so why waste our energy on people who have been brainwashed to see Igbos as their enemy while their real enemies continue to exterminate them.

We have lived as neighbors with these minorities for centuries without us invading or attacking them yet we are their problem but savages from distant lands have not only taken over their resources but also making their lives miserable. It is hightime we Igbos focused on our areas alone and let the myopic and deluded ones suffer for their foolishness.

Wike should send the anti grazing bill to the house of assembly like he said he would. Once Rivers state passes the bill into law, the other lily livered governors in the south who are waiting for who will pull the trigger first, would follow suit.

Who cares!! These people are kinda deluded and brain washed. If you ask an Ogoni person today who his problem is, we all know who they will call. I liken many people of the present day SS with few exceptions to the ethnic minorities of the North and MB. They are so hell bent on seeing their saviours as their enemies,and their oppressors as their friends. So let them enjoy and bask in their fruitful friendship. Umu okoko
