RationalTV: IPOB members are terrorists, while Fulani herdsmen are mere criminals - Lai Mohammed

IPOB members are terrorists, while Fulani herdsmen are mere criminals - Lai MohammedLai Mohammed, Minister of Information, has stated that the federal authorities did not designate Fulani herdsmen as terrorists because their sports had been criminal and no longer terror associated.
Mohammed made his feedback on the BBC’s Focus on Africa programme.
.
The minister made the feedback in reaction to criticisms over the federal government’s decisions to label the pro-Biafra group, Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), as a terrorist institution, and not the marauding herdsmen.
He stressed that the agenda of the herdsmen became no longer similar to that of IPOB, insisting that“acts of criminality should now not be burdened with terrorism acts”.
Mohammed gave reasons why the pro-Biafra group deserved the designation as a terrorist movement.
In his words:“For example, Nnamdi Kanu, the IPOB leader become stuck on tape, saying that they need Biafra and not peacefully, however through force.
“He declared that in the event that they do now not get Biafra, Somalia will be a paradise with the type of mayhem they may unharness on Nigeria.
“The group overtly embraced palms and ammunition; and the leader installation Biafra National Guard, Biafra Secret Service and brazenly attacked army formations.
“When an organization comes to a decision to not simply assault the Army but installation its own parallel government; when an organisation overtly solicits for palms all over the global; while an corporation starts issuing out its own passports and foreign money and does no longer recognize the democratically elected authorities, then it becomes a distinctive aspect.”
.
He stated the Nigerian federal government does not consider the United States stance on the new-bed trouble.
