On September 21, Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity in Buhari’s administration informed that the Indigenous People of Biafra was completely a terrorist organization. Fulani herdsmen were just called to be criminal gangs. In particular, the Buhari`s assistant released this information on television while speaking on the current prohibition of IPOB under the guidance of Nnamdi Kanu. Additionally, Garba Shehu stated that that the Biafra group supporters had no regard for the Nigerian Constitution. Answering to why Fulani herdsmen were not forbidden regardless of murdering hundreds of Nigerians, Garba told that it happened because there was a huge difference between terrorist activities and a criminal gang. According to Nigerian President`s aide, the Fulani herdsmen undoubtedly were a criminal gang. However, he compared Biafra state in Nigeria and IPOB to Boko Haram. “They clearly demonstrate the unstoppable readiness to occupy bordering states. They have already raised worries in neighboring Benue and Kogi states. Additionally, IPOB showed straight interest in taking over Bayelsa Rivers. These are precisely what Boko Haram has done with taxation systems and the Flags. This certainly is not satisfactory to the Nigerian laws,” emphasized Garba Shehu.
