RUGA: You’re Calling For War, Nigeria Already On Fire – Ohanaeze Warns Northern

By John Owen Nwachukwu 
13th July 2019

The apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo has stated that Nigeria was already on fire and awaiting disintegration.

Ohanaeze was quoted by the Sun to have said this on Saturday through its national publicity secretary, Uche Opaga- Achi,

The organisation was reacting to an earlier statement by the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) which urged those opposed to the setting up of Fulani herdsmen settlements, popularly called Ruga, across the country, to drop their opposition and allow the policy take off.

Ohanaeze said that the positions of both ACF and the Northern youth coalition, show the level of impunity they demonstrate or operate.

It added, “Nigeria is already on fire, and what was remaining is disintegration, which the action of these people is leading to. They are mongering for war; the country is on fire, there is distress everywhere.

“It is turning to criminality and absurdity that people will stay in the comfort of their homes and dictate what happens in another zone.

“What is the concept of rule of law and human rights; what is the concept of self determination; what is the concept of government protecting lives and property of people under its watch?

“They have the backing of the federal government and that is the more reason they can just wake up in the morning and begin to say things that are capable of disintegrating the country and nobody cares and they get out of it and lie freely on their beds, while the statement they have made is enforcing, heating the embers of disunity in the country.

“Our argument is this, the land in the north is by far much more larger than the one in the east or in south. Why is it that it is in the east and south that they are making emphasis of enforcing Ruga?

“Our argument is that you have the Sambisa forest that can contain all the cows in Africa and the insurgents are coming in through that axis. Let them go and develop the forest and bring all the cows in Africa and put there. They will be free from all forms of destruction, distraction or problems here and there; there will be no farmers there to clash with.

“In the alternative, the Sahara desert is wasting; you have oil in the south and you piped it to the north and you use it the way you want. So, the same way, you can also pipe water to the Sahara desert, as Governor Nyesom Wike suggested that they can pipe water to the desert, and Governor Dave Umahi also said that they can buy the grasses from the south. So, you can use the money you have and pipe water to develop the Sahara desert, water it and grass it.

“The cows will have a field day; the herders will have nobody to clash with. How come that you want to stifle the people with the little land they have here. You see brothers and sisters fighting over land because the land is too small; there are so many land cases in the court, which tells you that land is not even here, and you want to bring in Fulani from all parts of Africa to come and flood here in order to continue with you Islamisation and Fulanisation agenda. Is there anything hidden about this thing; it is an open secret.

“The support of the coalition group on herdsmen being part of security in states, is as laughable and as it is provocative and even insulting. How can southerners go to north and constitute vigilante? What is the job of the police, what is the job of the local vigilante there, are you saying that they are incompetent? They are doing their jobs. See how Boko Haram is killing our soldiers because the government provides money for arms and ammunition, but the people at the helm of affairs allegedly pocket the money.

“People are calling that Ruga should be implemented when the federal government has made a statement suspending it. Is that not a counter action, which is an offence and more so, criminal when you are making statements or comments capable of tearing the country into pieces, and yet, nobody is going for them; herdsmen are killing and raping people, and nobody is arresting them.

“They have a field day. It is the IPOB whose members were not armed was declared a terrorist group, but the terrorists that are busy killing people, damaging farms are walking freely without challenge. So, why will the northern youth not make inflammatory statement when they knew that nobody would question them and they have the backing of their elders.”




RUGA: You’re Calling For War, Nigeria Already On Fire – Ohanaeze Warns Northern Groups

On Fire


We have closely followed up and painstakingly watched the movements of Obijackson a Son of Okija Community and the Chairman of NestOil for couple of months now, and we can confidently confirm to you that this man is an Agent of Federal Government assigned a duty by the Fulani Cabal to;

  1. Acquire massive lands from Communities in  disguise for Ruga
  2. Build and handover to the Terrorist Fulani Herdsmen for settlement around Southeastern States

Without fear or favor, we wish to make it known that Obijackson in the past months, has acquired massive hectares of lands running into thousands. This lands are inside Southeast Forest areas and forcefully taken without the consent of the Communities.

His first place of conquest was Ubahu Ofe mmiri, Okija.

Next was Ogheregbu Okija. In this Community he forcefully took over 500 hectares of land and the Building plan shows that he is going to build over 650 structures with Schools from tertiary to University level, Hospitals, Banks, Markets, Civic centers, Police station etc with great road network and every basic amenities provided. The Express road connecting to this settlement has already kicked off with work going on very speedily.

In trying to achieve this, he destroyed farms and cash crops belonging to land owners. Under the supervision of Obijackson, old women and youths are molested because they tried to challenge the encroachment and destruction of their farms.

A close look at this project, one needs no soothsayer to affirm that this is exactly the structure of RUGA as published by Shehu Garba, President Buhari's Spokesperson.

In the past days, Obijackson has moved into Umuhu Community and there is a fight amongst the people, some sensing that he has ulterior motive while others simply don't care

Obijackson moves around all these areas with armed military men harassing and intimidating the owners of the Land.

Questions that are begging for answers are;

Whose Children is Obijackson building schools inside the forest areas for?

Who is he expecting to use Civic centers built inside the forest area?

Who intends to use the Banks and Police stations located  inside this forest areas?

Why is Obijackson providing every basic amenities for this new town inside the Forest, when he has not provided one for his Community that lacks every basic social amenities?

We appeal to every sensible Igbo man in places of authority to take this matter up and stop Obijackson before he settles the Terrorists into Ala-Igbo.

Udo diri ndi choro udo.
