Founder and leader of Biafra Independence Movement, BIM, Chief Ralph Uwazuruike, has accused Northern leaders of plotting to Islamise the country.
Uwazuruike recalling how the jihadists had arrived Kwara State in 1811 and after some brief stay “killed the Yoruba leader in the state and took over the administration of the area till date”, said it was an indication “that all these attacks by Boko Haram and herdsmen who kill, maim and sometimes colonise some communities in Benue, Taraba and Nasarawa states have the same Islamisation agenda”.
Uwazuruike stated this through BIM’s Director of Information, Mazi Chris Mocha, at the Anaocha Award Ceremony.
He, however, warned Igbos to be careful and protect themselves.
According to the BIM leader, “For sometime, some northern Muslim leaders had been nursing their political ambition of transforming Nigeria into an Islamic state.
“Their first daring indication was when the former President, Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, unilaterally took Nigeria to the Organization of Islamic Countries, OIC in 1986.
“The OIC which Nigeria was registered as a member is an organization that does not hide its ambition to Islamize not only its member states but the whole world.
“It is quite unfortunate to have the presence of trained security personnel in southern Nigeria who disguise as cobblers, bore-hole diggers, Finger nail cutters and okada riders of Chad, Niger and Sudanese extraction. These personnel have unclear business mission.
“Ndigbo had been the real victims of religious riots, the major victims of the present sharia crises in some northern states and other illegitimate experiments in the nationhood called Nigeria.
“Therefore, they should be very careful not to be the worst hit in the ongoing plan to Islamize the country.”
