He went further to say, that n as much that we, Benin’s, are peace lovers, accommodating and generous.
We take exception to the way some of these Ijaw youths from the neighboring Ikoro Community, said to be heavily armed with different types of arms and ammunitions.
Molest and even kill our brothers in their own soil without any provocation; To the extent, the Benin indigenes of Obazuwa Community now live in perpetual fear of the unknown.
These Ijaw youths residing in the Ikoro community have reportedly maimed destroyed properties.
And the livelihood of Benin’s in Obazuwa Community on different occasions.
And since this incident has been happening, we have not heard of any word of caution.
That is coming from the leaders/elders of Ikoro to their rampaging youths.
A clear sign that the action of the destructive youths has the backing of their leaders.
The Benin Solidarity Movement BSM Worldwide wants to seize this opportunity to warn the Ikoro youths and their sponsors to retrace their steps.
And tow the path of peace immediately or else they will face the wrath of the sons of the soil.
They should be told that the gentle strides of a Leopard do not mean that it is scared. It is only strategizing.
And doing reconnaissance on the most effective method to adopt in caging the enemy.
Another issue that is on the front burner in recent times is the agitation for the Biafra Republic as being championed by the Igbos.
That is under the control of the self-acclaimed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) led by the enfant terrible Nnamdi Kanu.
The Benin Solidarity Movement BSM Worldwide concern as regards the agitation is the knack by the arrowhead of the IPOB.
To always describe Edo State as a part of Biafra; There is nothing farther from the truth.
The people of Edo State, most especially the Benin’s, are never and will never be from Biafra. The enfant terrible Nnamdi Kanu and his group of ‘hero’ worshippers.
Should get that into their brain now as failure to heed this warning will be the beginning of the end of their Biafra Republic dream.
