News: Bakassi Boys Regroup to Stop Fulani Herdsmen Massacre!

It might soon be total war against the Fulani herdsmen as the dreaded Bakassi boys in the South East have now started regrouping to unleash mayhem on the herdsmen.

Following the merciless massacre of innocent farmers in Nimbo, Enugu state, the dreaded Bakassi Boys have started regrouping to combat the excesses of the Fulani herdsmen. 

Just last month, about 48 helpless farmers were massacred by the Fulani herdsmen armed to the teeth after they invaded Nimbo village in Enugu state. Many houses were burnt and souls lost. 
It was gathered that leaders of the Bakassi Boys have been meeting in Abia, Imo, Anambra and Ebonyi on how to defend the states from further attacks by killer herdsmen.
Speaking to The Nation, a top member of the group who did not want his name mentioned, said never again would anyone or group be allowed to terrorize the zone 'for no just cause'.
Also speaking, a leader of Movement for the actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), Comrade Uchenna Madu, said the movement was reaching out to other Igbo groups on the matter.
"There is need for Ndigbo to form a synergy on this issue," he said.
"We have started making consultations. This is not an issue MASSOB and other positive groups in Igboland will leave for the governors and policemen to decide.

"The groups we are talking about are not ones that find favour on the pages of newspapers, but groups that have the interests of our people at heart like MASSOB," Madu said.
Meanwhile, Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State met on Thursday night with traditional rulers in the state on how to forestall a repeat of the Enugu mayhem in Anambra
He said: "We do not want anything to destroy the beautiful relationship that has existed between Igbo and Fulani and other Nigerians. We want Anambra to be a shining example and that is why we are the light of the nation.

"What we intend to do is to send the Fulani that are living with us here to go and meet with the Fulani in that area with a view to finding out whether they are coming in peace or otherwise.

"We agreed at the Security Council Meeting that we will not allow herdsmen to carry arms.

"That is a clear directive from Abuja. Herdsmen are not supposed to bear arms. Please, if you see any herdsmen with AK47, report them early to the police so that they can be picked up."
