Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide has absolved Governors of South East of any secret dealing with Fulani groups in the region.

The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had earlier claimed that the governors have secretly awarded lands to the federal government for the purpose of establishing settlement for Fulani herdsmen.

However, Ohaneze Youths in a statement issued on Thursday by its President General, Mazi Okechukwu Isiguzoro, assured Ndigbo that the South-East Governors did not donate lands secretly for the Suspended Ruga Settlements in the region. The statement partly reads:

“We want to assure our Biafra agitators that there’s no proof anywhere that the South East Governors have the intention of going contrary to their earlier resolutions adopted in their last Enugu meeting, to donate lands secretly for the Suspended Ruga Settlements in the South East.

“Irrespective of that, we are calling on the south east Governors to ensure they are not instigating uproar and civil disobedience through mingling into the affairs of self determination of Biafra agitators. We should avoid anything that will bring declaration of state of emergency in any State in the South East.

“We urge South East Governors to allow the sleeping dog to rest, there’s no gain in using confrontation through State machinery against Biafra agitators, and plead on agitators no eschew violence and maintain non violent posture of Biafra agitation.”
