Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah says he would cease to be Nigerian if he could over injustices meted out against certain groups in the country.

In an article credited to him on social media, Kukah purportedly said the agitations of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are so because justice is not equally administered.

He said, "How do I love a country where a murderous terrorist group like the herdsmen acclaimed even internationally as deadly is being openly defended by a govt. that wants my loyalty?"

The controversial Priest particularly referred to the Fulani attacks in Plateau's Bokkos LGA on which government is silent, saying such actions by government give room for violent agitations.

"As  I make this comment, a first class Chief of Bokkos LGA in plateau state was murdered by a certain group of Fulanis almost a year now and no one has been arrested not to talk of prosecution; there are many villagers in my parish who cannot go to farm again  except to farm their backyard because their farms have been forcefully annexed by their Fulani murderers; that in Bokkos a wife and a daughter can be taken away right before her husband or father and be repeatedly raped then released at the convenience of the barbaric Fulani tribesmen and no one dares talk; police will advise you to go and settle the matter through dialogue?

"At the slightest excitement Hausa or Fulani man can kill you and get away with it; it has happened and continues to happen but when you gear up to defend yourself because security will not, then you are caught by the same security who will lecture you on how to be peaceful and law abiding," the Bishop said.

The Catholic Church Bishop, Mathew Hassan Kukah, has however in a Dailypost report disowned the article on the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), which has been trending online.

Kukah in a terse statement personally signed by him on Friday, said: “Here is a disclaimer for notice of the general public.

“There is a spurious and an untitled piece credited to me about Biafra which is enjoying wide circulation on the social media.

“I have nothing to do with it.”
