"We need to protect this very land. We want to protect the Fulani men from rustling.

"The police have done nothing. Fulani herdsmen are operating everywhere.

"President Buhari spoke; he never mentioned the menace of Fulani herdsmen. His interest was Biafra agitation. It doesn’t work for me. I am a Biafran.”
