The president of Miyetti Allah, Abdullah Bello Bodejo has come out to debunk the viral report that Fulani tribe own Nigeria and will rule forever.
You will recall that a report has voraciously gone viral on Saturday that the president of Fulani herdsmen In the country said the organization is unveiling it security outfit soon which will protect the interest of Fulani herdsmen in the country.
Furthermore, the news report mentioned that the Fulani tribe owns Nigeria and will rule Nigeria forever. This statement stirred public outrage from prominent organizations in the country like CAN and MURIC berating the incisive comment.
However, on Sunday, the president of Miyetti Allah came out to debunk the viral report and set the record straight.
Abdullah said: “I want to state clearly and unequivocally that this news report is a blatant fabricated lie. It is actually the enemies of the Fulbe people that are at it again, as always, concocting such insidious and malicious falsehood against our people for their diabolical agenda against the Nigerian state. ”
“No doubt I was asked by the Sun Newspaper to react on the formation of Amotekun and my response was that every ethnic group has the inalienable right to defend itself against any aggression, including the Fulbe. That Fulbe will pursue their legitimate business anywhere in Nigeria as the country is as much their inheritance as it is of other groups”.
“I further said the Fulbe will also form their vigilante groups if necessary to ward off any threat against our people and against the incessant cattle rustling that our people have been suffering for decades without respite from government and other communities”.
“For example, more than 804 Fulbe were murdered in cold blood in June, 2017 and more than 10,000 of their cattle killed by Mambila militias in Taraba State, continuous killing of our people and stealing and rustling their Cattles in Plateau, Southern Kaduna, Benue, Zamfara with no arrest against the perpetrators.”
He noted that the organization will continue to protect the interest of it members regardless of mischief from the enemies of Fulani in the country.
“This is essentially what l said to the Sun Newspaper. But I am surprised that I did not see this report on the media I spoke to but it went distortedly viral on some other social media. Miyetti Allah refutes this news report and condemns the inherent mischief by the enemies of the Fulbe for this diabolical act. With or without Miyetti Allah, the Fulbe have the ability, capacity and right to defend themselves in Nigeria and indeed anywhere. Let those who wish this our great country ill to look for other means but leave the Fulbe alone. We have enough of our problems without adding salt to injury,” he said.
