The General Overseer of Christian Central Chapel International, Bishop (Dr) Emma Gospel Isong has said that Fulani Herdsmen have wrecked more havoc than IPOB group,they are more dangerous than members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Dr Isong said,“If I were to tell you my opinion, Fulani Herdsmen have wrecked more havoc than IPOB as a group, except there are other criteria to judge.
“I am not a lawyer but if there are other criteria to judge the operation of terrorist group than maiming, killing, invading communities and cities, destabilizing the civil society and of cause condoning and engaging in constant bloodshed, they should be considered as a terrorist group than IPOB.
“Well, if there are other definition to terrorism, maybe I will check a dictionary to find out, to know the meaning of terrorism but people that constantly engage in activity that would subvert the good wishes of the people and of a nation, maybe considered as a terrorist.
“However, we have to sit down as a nation and define terrorism so that we can say Mr A is a terrorist and Mr B is not”,
The operation Python Dance 11
Isong said that Federal Government had power to use the Army and any legal facility to protect the territorial integrity of Nigeria.
peration Python Dance 11, Isong said that Federal Government had power to use the Army and any legal facility to protect the territorial integrity of Nigeria.
“The good action came too early, the Army came out too early, we have other arms like the Police which one of the duties is to maintain law and order, control civil unrest and other options, the Army should have been the last option.
“Sadly, similar action was not taken on Fulani Herdsmen, this is what is giving people headache, Federal Government should not let people perceive them as being sympathetic with Fulani Herdsmen.
“One because the Federal Minister of Information has come out to say that IPOB was a terrorist group and this is why Fulani Herdsmen was not declared terrorist group.
