The Biafra Nations Youth League (BNYL), has condemned the recent killing of eight villagers in Delta State by suspected Fulani herdsmen, vowing to give the attackers bloodiest fight.
Corpses of eight farmers, reportedly killed by gunmen suspected to be herdsmen at Uwheru in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State, were recently exhumed by a search team made up of police personnel and representatives of the community.
Two of the corpses were exhumed on Sunday, while six others were drugged out on Monday.
Linus Asuquo Essien, BNYL Chief of General Staff, in a statement on Friday, blamed southern leaders for the continuous Fulani attacks in the region.
The group said some of the elders have been discouraging them from coordinating reprisals across the south-east and Southsouth regions, “even as they know what we are made up of and what we are capable of doing.

“This herders have infiltrated our
communities and the only way we can force them to retreat is giving them a bloodiest fight back,” it said.
The Pro-Biafra group also drew attention to
the Nimbo killing in Uzo-uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State.
“We were disappointed when after that horrific experience nothing was done, but the people were told to fast and pray, that alone gave them more mind to advance and they are gradullay coming down to Bakassi but we will handle them,” the BYNL added.
According to the group, the attackers are not ordinary herdsmen, adding that the presidency knows how to repatriate the killers back to the north.
It called for more synergy among the South-east and South-south geo-political zones.
