NINAS urges UN to declare Miyyeti Allah terrorist organisation

The Chairman of Nigerian Indigenous Nationalities Alliance for Self-Determination (NINAS), Professor Banji Akintoye, has declared that all is now set for the million-man freedom march scheduled to hold opposite the United Nations Headquarters in New York, United States of America from September 14 to September 24, 2021.

In a statement made available to newsmen on Monday by his Communications Manager, Mr. Maxwell Adeleye, Akintoye said the protest is meant to show to the world the genocide being perpetrated by murderous herdsmen in the name of grazing in the south and Middle-Belt of Nigeria.

The renowned historian said the people of the south and Middle-Belt would be showing to the world the crimes against humanity, attacks on press freedom, free speech, and other criminalities being aided by the Buhari-led government of Nigeria.

The octogenarian scholar stated that the indigenous people within the NINAS territories shall also be demanding the conduct of a regional referendum so that the people can decide on their nationhood.

Describing the 1999 Constitution of Nigeria as a fraud against the people of South and Middle-Belt, Akintoye, a member of the Nigerian senate between 1979 and 1983, said the March will be used as an opportunity to expose to the world, how a tiny minority people have hijacked the assets of the South and Middle-Belt of Nigeria through the 1999 Constitution which he said was enacted without the consent of the people.

The statement added: “The land belongs to the people through the grace of Almighty God. We the Indigenous people of the South and Middle-Belt totally reject the illegitimate and imposed 1999 Nigerian Constitution that hijacks our Self-Determination and Assets.”

“We want an end to the ethnoreligious killings in Nigeria. We want the Government of Nigeria to stop funding terrorism against us. What is happening today in Nigeria is a State-sponsored Terrorism.”

“The herdsmen you see in the South and Middle-Belt today are different from the nomadic herdsmen we grew up to know. The current ones are imported members of ISIS, AL-QUAEDA, ISWAP, and Boko Haram Terrorists being masqueraded as Bandits.”

“By the grace of God, we shall be demanding from the world leaders to declare Miyyeti Allah as a Terrorist Group. It is dangerous to safety and peace of the South and Middle-Belt people to call Miyyeti Allah a trade Union, it is a Terrorist group being supported by the current Fulanised Government of Nigeria with a mission to overrun the indigenous people.”
