The United Nations has invited Bilie Human Rights Initiative to its Security Council Committee Joint Briefing on Security issues to be held on 14th April 2016 in New York. The invitation was given to only sovereign member States, intergovernmental organizations and NGOs in Consultative Status with the United Nations ECOSOC. Bilie Human Rights Initiative which represents Indigenous People of Biafra in the Federal High Court Owerri in Suit No FHC/OW/CS/192/2013, in the African Union and in the United Nations has been invited to attend the Security Council Committee meeting.
THE FULANI HERDSMEN ATTACKS MUST BE INCLUDED AS ACTS OF TERRORISM:
This is an urgent invitation from the United Nations to Bilie Human Rights Initiative to participate in the Security Council Committee Joint Briefing on 14th April 2016. The issues to be discussed are urgent. It is on terrorism and the menace of Islamic fundamentalists of the likes of ISIL and Al-Qaida. It includes Boko Haram and its affiliates. This is a privileged invitation to Bilie Human Rights Initiative. Only member nations, intergovernmental organizations and NGOs in Consultative Status with ECOSOC are permitted to attend. We have been invited because Bilie Human Rights Initiative has been admitted into the Consultative Status of the ECOSOC to represent all Indigenous People of Biafra in the United Nations.
We must bring it to the NOTICE of the United Nations Security Council that the Fulani Herdsmen are the worst terrorists in Nigeria and must be classified as a Terrorist Group. It is our opinion that the Fulani Herdsmen are a well-organized Terrorist Group backed and sponsored by powerful men in authority who rule Nigeria from the North. They have influential men in the National Assembly who have perfected their plans to pass the worst kind of bill into law to take over the lands of the Indigenous Peoples of the Middle Belt, the South-West, South-East and South-South as Islamic Settlements in the name of Grazing Lands. We believe that these grazing lands shall in future become Islamic Settlements. Bilie Human Rights Initiative has the right and power to defend the rights of all Indigenous Peoples of the land in all parts of Nigeria. We cannot allow the Fulani Herdsmen to destroy the people and their lands. This is another form of oppression and colonialism. We must resist it. We must not allow them to pass that bill into law.
