The Chairman of the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination, (NINAS), Professor Banji Akintoye has urged the United Nations to declare Miyetti Allah a terrorist organization.
This is coming just as he also vowed to organise a one million-man freedom march at the UN Headquarters in New York, the United States of America, for 11 days to press home his group’s position on the activities of the Fulani group in the country.
Akintoye, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Mr. Maxwell Adeleye on Tuesday said the people of the South and Middle-Belt would be showing to the world the crimes against humanity, attacks on press freedom, free speech and other criminalities in Nigeria.
“The land belongs to the people through the grace of Almighty God. We, the Indigenous people of the South and Middle-Belt, reject the illegitimate and imposed 1999 Nigerian Constitution that hijacks our Self-Determination and Assets.
We want an end to the ethnoreligious killings in Nigeria. We want the Government of Nigeria to stop funding terrorism against us. What is happening today in Nigeria is State-sponsored terrorism.”
He added that “The herdsmen you see in the South and Middle-Belt today are different from the nomadic herdsmen we grew up to know. The current ones are imported members of ISIS, AL-QUAEDA, ISWAP and Boko Haram Terrorists being masqueraded as Bandits.
“By the grace of God, we shall be demanding from the world leaders to declare Miyetti Allah a terrorist group. It is dangerous to the safety and peace of the South and Middle-Belt people to call Miyetti Allah a trade Union, it is a Terrorist group being supported by the current Fulanised Government of Nigeria with a mission to overrun the indigenous people.”
