Fulani herdsmen or Fulani pastoralists are nomadic or semi-nomadic Fulani people whose primary occupation is raising livestock.
The herdsmen are found in countries such as Nigeria, Niger, Senegal, Guinea, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, and Cameroon.
Fulani Herdsmen Terrorism In Nigeria.
Fulani Herdsmen terrorism, Herder-farmer conflicts in Nigeria have mainly involved disputes over land resources between mostly Muslim Fulani herders and mostly Christian farmers across Nigeria but more devastating in the Middle Belt (North Central) since the return of democracy in 1999. But most recently, it has deteriorated into terror attacks on farmers by Fulani Herdsmen – the fourth most deadly terrorist group in the world by the Global Terrorism Index.
These attacks have been carried out with impunity with no Fulanis terrorist arrested by the Nigerian government till date. The Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari has been criticised for turning a blind eye to the atrocities committed by his kinsmen and for his inability to issue an arrest warrant for killer herdsmen.
Attacks have also taken place in the Northwest, Middle belt, Southwest and Southeast Nigeria against farmers. While the conflict has underlying economic and environmental reasons, it has also acquired religious and ethnic dimensions. Thousands of people have died since these attacks began.
The Nigerian government has been unwilling to address the causes of the crisis. Fighting Boko Haram in the North-East and facing rising levels of violence in different regions of the country, the government has nonetheless tried to implement a few measures.
I believe that the Fulani Herdsmen Are On A Mission To Eliminate Nigerians & Takeover. They are Terrorists, the fourth most deadly terrorist group in the world by the Global Terrorism Index, and should be treated as one. They are not supposed to be seen or associate with.
It is obvious and unfortunate that the Buhari-led government are on their side.
These guys are out for a mission. To steal, kill and destroy the labour of our heros past, present and future generation. What do we do? Fold our hands and watch them kill us all in our father’s land?
I made a post on this two days ago, asking why are they avoiding Rivers State (the riverine areas in particular). You know why? They knew that Rivers people will fight back, kill them all and nothing will happen, not even Buhari can save them.
They chooses to attack and kill vulnerable, innocent, helpless farmers instead.
I’m not writing this to create panic, promote violence, but an awareness, to inform everyone what’s going on. Fulani Herdsmen are deadly Terrorist Group. The fourth in the world according to Global Terrorism Index. The earlier we know this, the better.
