Enugu Massacre: “I Will Personally Ask Pro-Biafra Youths To Go To War, If – Bishop Chukwuma Explodes

Anger is building up across the country over killings by suspected Fulani herdsmen and may explode to an unimaginable proportion if nothing is done fast by the government. The latest is the Monday night attack on an Enugu community where no fewer than 48 people are believed to have been killed. The Archbishop of Anglican Communion (Enugu Archdiocese) Dr. Emmanuel Chukwuma has warned that if nothing was done to check the menace of Fulani herdsmen, he would personally ask the pro-Biafra groups to declare a war against them.  The fiery cleric, who was visibly angry over Monday’s attack on an Enugu community, said it was now clear that the Federal Government controlled security agencies deliberately engaged in selective negligence. He called on the Federal Government to declare a state of emergency in Igboland.  The Archbishop was surprised that many hours after the attack, no arrest had been made. The cleric insisted that Fulani herdsmen were more violent than the pro-Biafra agitators and called on Southeast governors to rise up to the security challenge.  “I feel bitter, I feel aggrieved. I feel sad that the APC government at the centre cannot protect us. We call on the Federal Government to declare a state of emergency in Igbo land over the Fulani herdsmen’s threat to security in the zone or else we will declare war against the Fulani herdsmen.
