Angered by the incessant killings of innocent Nigerians by killer Fulani herdsmen, the Archbishop of Enugu Ecclesiastical province (Anglican communion), The Most Rev. Dr. Emmanuel Chukwuma, Tuesday in Onitsha, Anambra state, warned the Fulani killer herdsmen to stay clear of the entire Southeast zone in their own interest or Nigerians would be ready for the second civil war.
Archbishop Chukwuma sounded the note of warning while fielding questions from newsmen during the second day of the four-day meeting of Church of Nigeria Standing Committee, currently being held at All Saints Cathedral Church, Onitsha and presided over by the Primate of the Anglican communion, His Grace, the Most Rev. Henry Ndukuba.
“They should keep off from here; we have suffered enough. If they don’t want a second civil war they should keep off Southeast.”
“We cannot tolerate their walking anyhow, killing our people and raping our women particularly now that the rainy season is coming for farming.
We have to really prevent danger. We want to warn them that if anything happens again, we will not take chances any more. Whatever violence they cause here they will regret it,” he fumed.
The cleric recalled the recent resolve of the Southeast Governors that open grazing is banned in the zone adding, “as far as Governors of the Southeast are concerned, we are supporting them, they are on the right track”.
