Tension, Fear In Anambra As Miyetti Allah Threatens To Avenge Killings Of Herdsmen
BY SUNNY DAVID
There may be no end in sight to killings across the country as Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association has vowed to avenge the deaths of herdsmen in Anambra State.
The National Secretary of the association, Engr. Saleh Alhassan in a statement on Thursday, indicated that Nnamdi Kanu, and members of his proscribed South East militia group will pay dearly for the mindless massacre of not less than 50 herdsmen recently.
The statement indicated that so far, more than 50 herders have been killed in the South-East in the last one month.
“We have the record and the Igbo terrorists led by Nnamdi Kanu will pay for everyone they killed.”
He recalled how the Igbos were saved in the North during the civil war adding that they have failed to remember history.
“It is unfortunate that they have forgotten history, how we saved a lot of Igbos in the North during the civil war but now they are killing our people.”
Engr. Alhassan threatened to take legal steps to avenge death of members.
“These people are making a grievous mistake. We will take necessary steps both legal and cultural steps to avenge the killings of our members,” the statement added.
Engr. Alhassan further demanded the government to deal with the destructive elements in South East, even as he applauded security agencies for killing a principal member of the militant group, Commander Ikonso.
Ikonso, who is the Commander of Eastern Security Network, ESN, was killed by military operatives during a joint operation in Imo State by security agencies on Saturday April 24.
