Seven years ago, when I first raised alarm about the activities of Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram in Nigeria, I used words like northernisation and Islamic Agenda, and some people accused me of scare mongering.
After the devastation caused to the Biroms, ethnic minority Christian communities of southern Kaduna, Tivs, Igbos, Yorubas etc., as a result of the terrorist activities of Fulani herdsmen, professors of constitutional law are using the same words to describe the same problem. These words are now entrenched in Nigerian English lexicon.
The news that the Nigerian government wants to established cattle colonies all over Nigeria is another evidence of the single mindedness with which the north is pursing its northernisation agenda.
Cattle colonies is a fraud to siphon public money into private Fulani pockets. Cattle rearing is a private business. The government has no business subsidising private business.
Why should Cattle rearing get special treatment just because the president is Fulani and it is a business dominated by Fulanis and ex army generals?
These colonies will become Fulani enclaves from which armed Fulani militia will launch operation all over Nigeria.
With the recent development, it would be simply madness for communities in Nigeria to allow Fulani enclaves in their midst, where there would be armed herdsmen.
What every Nigerian should understand is that the Fulanis are at war to conquer territories in Nigeria. The killings will not stop until the people also arm and fight back.
From the reaction of president Buhari so far, it would seem that he is keeping his promise to make the blood of ‘baboons’ flow.
His reaction as president of Nigeria to Fulani herdsmen terrorism mirrors exactly the reaction of Sudanese President Omar Bashir to the Darfur crisis. The interesting thing is that the janjaweed are Fulanis
Buhari’s silence, and complicity in this evolving pogrom is ensuring that Nigerians are internally displaced from their ancestral land for migrant Fulanis to take over their land as grazing ground for cattle. I watched picture of Fulani herdsmen cutting harvested yams for cows, while their owner watch helplessly.
No one should believe anything Buhari says about Fulani herdsmen, until he sends in the army for operation Cow dance in Benue State, orders the arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators of this genocide and the disarming of all Fulani herdsmen, pay adequate compensation to their victims and rehabilitate them in their villages.
Without it. The president of Nigeria the Trustee and members of Myitti Allah cattle breeding Association should be held responsible and accountable for this crime against humanity, which has been committed by Fulani herdsmen over these years.
The Nigeria National Assembly should convene a special session to discuss Fulani herdsmen terrorism. If the speaker and senate president refuse, legislators from middle belt, south East and West Nigeria should boycott the National Assembly.
All Nigerians should boycott cow meat, and no one should bury their dead by killing cows until this matter is resolved.
Any Nigerian who continues to consume cow meat should know that he or she is funding the ethnic cleansing of Nigerian villages.
Nigerians should demand for federal appointment to reflect federal character. Buhari should be take to Court for discrimination, nepotism and aiding ethnic cleansing.
It is now clear why Buhari retired many army officers form the south and replaced them with Northerners, who are Muslims and why he ensured that most important positions are in the hands of the Northerners who are Muslims.
