The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, which is one of the umbrella bodies of herdsmen in Nigeria, has urged security agencies to deal with “terrorists killing” Fulani herders in the South-East.

Saleh Alhassan, spokesman for the group, divulged this while responding to the killing of one of the commanders of Indigenous People of Biafra gunned down by security operatives last Saturday.

Police operatives and their mates from the Nigerian Army and Department of State Services had killed an IPOB leader, one Commander Ikonso and six other militia members in Imo state.

The IPOB men, who were members of the secessionist group’s security arm, the Eastern Security Network, were killed during an early morning raid on their hideout at Awomama village, Oru East Local Government Area of the state last week.

IPOB has since coerced “madness”, saying the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, will “pay dearly” for the killing of its leader.

speaking on Thursday , Miyetti Allah spokesman commended the security agencies, adding that they should “intensify efforts” in dealing with all terrorist factors in the country.

He said, “The security agencies should intensify efforts in dealing with all those terrorists killing Fulani herders, burning police stations, prisons and destroying institutions in the South-East.”

Alhassan said at least 50 ranchers have been killed in the South-East in the last one month, adding that his group would redress the death of those members.

He said, “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 everybody they killed.

“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. They are making a terrible mistake. We will take necessary steps, both legal and cultural steps, to avenge the killings of our members.”
