Senator Adamu Bulkachuwa’s war warning against the Southeast has been denied by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Bulkachuwa, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, has stated that if the case warrants, the Nigerian government should declare war on the Southeast.
The legislator stated that the Nigerian government will not give in to the demands of the Southeast’s “insurgents.”
He claimed that the Southeast has previously attempted secession from Nigeria, which culminated in civil war, and that if the region chooses to follow the same path, the Nigerian government will have no choice but to retaliate.
The government, he claims, will fight them and give them what they want.
In a tweet, Kanu responded: “Whenever Fulani Janjaweed threaten us with war, I laugh because Fulani never fought any war with us.
The only tribe Fulani can threaten in Nigeria is the Hausa because they conquered them through Jihad.
The Biafran War was between Biafra and Britain(USSR, Egypt, etc) not Fulani.”
