A Pro-Jonathan group under the aegis of ‘GoodluckNigeria’ has vowed to rid the Niger Delta of Fulani herdsmen.
The group stated this in a statement signed by its President, Joseph Spiff Wilcox and made available to journalists in Port Harcourt on Monday.
The organisation called on all Ijaw sons and daughters to join in chasing all Fulani herdsmen out of the Niger Delta, noting that it was in the best interest of the Ijaw people.
It said: “Very soon, we will lead a massive protest across Niger Delta to sensitize our people on the need to resist the movement of all herdsmen in Ijaw land. What happened in Agatu must not be allowed to happen in any Niger Delta community.
“The senseless killing of 75 people in Delta State by Fulani herdsmen must not go unpunished.That is why we support the move by the former President and his wife to protect our land.
“We align with their thinking to ensure that every part of our region is ridden of all traces of these archaic people whose stock in trade is the killing of our people from the south.
“We also call on all our people to key into this new movement of making sure that Fulani people and their cows do not continue to plunder our land, while we fold our hands and watch helplessly”.
