Yoruba Nation Agitators, Others Threaten ‘Never-Seen-Before Protest’ Over Grazing Reserves


Yoruba Nation agitators and other self-determination proponents have threatened that there will be a “never-seen-before mass revolt” in states that give room for grazing reserves in the Southern region of the country

The agitators, under the aegis of the Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination, made this known in a statement titled, “Governors in the Southern Region that welcome FG’s Grazing Reserves should prepare for a never-seen-before mass action”.

NINAS is the coordinating platform for the umbrella bodies of self-determination groups in the South and Middle Belt of Nigeria with Ilana Omo Oodua representing the South West, Lower Niger Congress representing the South-South and South-East and Middle Belt Renaissance Movement representing the Middle Belt Region.

NINAS, which is headed by Prof Banji Akintoye as the Chairman and Tony Nnadi, Secretary-General, told Governors within the alliance territory to expect “a never-before-seen mass revolt of the people should any of them cede an inch of their ancestral land to the central government for Fulani herdsmen grazing reserves”.

The PUNCH reports that the President, Major Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), had on August 19, approved a controversial review of 368 grazing reserves across 25 states in the country.

Part of the statement read, “We also urge Governors within the NINAS territory to respect the wishes of their people on the issue of the grazing reserve being planned by the central government for Fulani Herdsmen.
