The Movement for the Emancipation and Defense of the Niger Delta, a militant group in the South-South region has threatened to launch formal attack against the Fulani’s in the South South region over the three days warning given to the executive governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa because of his support for ban on open grazing by the Southern States.
MEND in a statement warned that if the threat is made to come to fulfilment, no Fulani will ever exist across the Niger Delta and all oil facilities linked to a Fulani person will be brought down.
The militia group also threatened to launch three rocket launchers and ballistic missiles at any facility of their choice as a warning in seven days if the Fulani people should make bold their threats.
The statement read, “The attention of “The Movement for the Emancipation and the Defence of the Niger Delta” has been brought to the threat of some Fulani terrorists who have given a 3 days warning to the Governor of Delta State because of his support for the ban on open grazing across the Southern State.
“We also saw your taking responsibility for an explosion at the Secretariat in Asaba.
“We are warning that if your threat is made to come to fulfilment, No Fulani will ever exist across the Niger Delta and all oil facilities linked to a Fulani will be brought down. If one soul is lost, Ten Fulani souls will pay for it. If one Facility is destroyed, Ten Fulani facilities will be destroyed. We will respond proportionately ten times whatever you give, the corresponding response will not be limited to the Delta, It may be with your politicians or with your rulers.
“We will launch three rocket launchers and ballistic missiles at any facility of our choice as a warning in seven days if you make bold your threats.
