  1. President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday said the herdsmen wreaking havoc across the country are gunmen trained by the late Libyan President Muammar Gadaffi. Speaking with the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby at the Abuja House in London, Buhari said the gunmen escaped into Nigeria and other West African countries after Gadaffi’s death. “The problem is even older than us. It has always been there, but now made worse by the influx of gunmen from the Sahel region into different parts of the West African sub-region,” he said in response to Archbishop Welby’s question on the herdsmen crisis. “They were trained and armed by Muammar Gadaffi of Libya. When he was killed, the gunmen escaped with their arms. We encountered some of them fighting with Boko Haram. “Herdsmen that we used to know carried only sticks and maybe a cutlass to clear the way, but these ones now carry sophisticated weapons. The problem is not religious, but sociological and economic. But we are working on solutions.” The President said “irresponsible politics” had been brought into the farmers/herders’ crisis, promising that enduring solutions would be found, and justice done to all concerned. He said he declared his second-term bid on Monday before his London trip because many Nigerians were “talking too much” about whether he was going to run or not. On Leah Sharibu, the Dapchi schoolgirl still being held by insurgents for refusing to renounce Christianity, the President said: “We are managing the matter quietly. Making noise would not help. We are collecting as much intelligence as possible, working with the Red Cross and other international organisations. “There are too many fraudulent people around, who claim they can do this and that. We won’t deal with them. That was how we got the Dapchi girls back, and the Chibok girls.” Archbishop Welby said it was always a delight to see President Buhari, adding that he would pray for him on his decision to seek a second term. He later presented President Buhari with a copy of his recent book: “Reimagining Britain. Foundations for Hope.”
  2. Four members of a family were Wednesday butchered in Taraba State by suspected herdsmen. A 9-month old toddler, however, survived the attack. Police Commissioner, David Akinremi, who confirmed the attack and killings, said the incident took place in Bikka ‎village of Takum local government area, the home of Governor Darius Ishaku and former Defence Minister Theophilus Danjuma. The Taraba police commissioner described the killers as “unknown gunmen.” “There is no confirmation yet, as to who they (the killers) are, and their motive. “But no item seen to be stolen,” he told The Nation, adding that the killers struck at 1:00am. Hon. Shiban Tikare, the Chairman of Takum local government council, also confirmed the killing of the four members of a family in a night attack. Shiban disclosed that a nine-month old baby, however, “mysteriously” survived the attack. “The attackers invaded the village at night and slaughtered four members of a family who were deep asleep. “We heard gunshots around 1:00am along Takum -Ussa road. While we were making efforts to mobilise policemen to the area, we heard sporadic gunshots at Mbikka Central, a community just at the outskirt of the town. “By the time we got there, four people were slaughtered like chickens – a man, his wife and two children. “A baby mysteriously survived the attack. The attackers whom we suspect to be Fulani herdsmen also attacked Basam, a village close to Rtd. Gen. Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma’s farmhouse, setting the entire village ablaze,” he said. Shiban lamented that the killings were going on in the area, in spite of the extension of Exercise Ayem A Kpatuma (Cat Race) by the federal government. Police spokesman, David Misal, an ASP, said the casualty figure was still not clear, “but four bodies were recovered.”
  3. Four family members have been confirmed killed in a night attack on Mbiya central village on the outskirts of Takum town, Takum Local Government Area of the state. The Chairman of Takum Local Government in Taraba State, Shiban Tikare, on Wednesday, while confirming the killings said a nine-month-old baby survived the attack, that the attackers invaded the village around 2 am on Wednesday and slaughtered the four family members who were deep asleep. He said, “We heard gunshots around 1 am along Takum-Ussa road and as we were making efforts to mobilise policemen to the area, we heard gunshots at Mbiya Central, a community just on the outskirts of the town. “By the time we got there, four people had been slaughtered like chickens; a man, his wife and two children. “A baby mysteriously survived the attack. The attackers whom we suspect to be Fulani herdsmen also attacked Basam, a village close to Gen. T.Y. Danjuma’s farm and set the whole village ablaze.”
  4. Unknown gunmen have reportedly killed 15 Fulani herdsmen in the latest bout of violence in northern Nigeria’s herding communities. The Police Command’s Spokesman, DSP Mohammed Shehu confirmed this to newsmen in Gusau. He said that the killing was perpetrated by gunmen who came in large numbers and attacked the village in the early hours of Wednesday, shooting sporadically. “The villagers who were taken unawares were quick to alert a nearby mobile police patrol team which ca me and engaged the bandits in a gun battle. “The policemen overpowered the bandits even as many of them escaped with gunshot wounds,”‎ Shehu said. He, however, urged members of the public to be on alert to report to the nearest authority anyone seen with bullet wounds and seeking medical attention. “Armed bandits attacked Bawon-Daji village yesterday and killed 15 people,” the police spokesman for Zamfara state, Muhammad Shehu, told AFP.
  5. AN 18-year-old student of the Ambrose Ali University, Ekpoma, Collins Ojeriakhi, who was killed by a gang of armed men, suspected to be herdsmen in the Esan South-East Local Government Area of Edo State, has been buried. This was as the Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Johnson Kokumo, said that one person had been arrested in connection with the killing. Kokumo also stated that investigation was ongoing to identify and arrest other members of the killer gang. Ojeriakhi and two other persons, including a minor, had been reportedly shot dead by the armed men in Ugboha on March 16. Several other people were also said to have been injured during the attack. The late Ojeriakhi, a first year student of Banking and Finance at the AAU, was said to be on his way from Uromi on a motorcycle when the assailants opened fire on him. It was learnt that the youngest of the victims was returning from Lagos along with his mother and sibling on a motorcycle when he was shot. It was also learnt that he later died in his mother’s arms after efforts to save his life proved abortive. Governor Godwin Obaseki, who condemned the killings, had also ordered the arrest of the culprits within seven days. However, family members and sympathisers wept as the body of the late undergraduate was interred in his father’s compound located in Oyomon Quarters, Ineme-Ugboha, at about 5pm on Wednesday. It was gathered that the burial was witnessed by some security agents, members of the Students’ Union Government from AAU and classmates of the deceased. The father of the deceased, Mr. Festus Ojeriakhi, described his late son as a hardworking and peace-loving person who would be missed by his relatives and friends. Ojeriakhi stated, “The boy (Collins) used the motorcycle to carry cassava for me from the farm four times in a day. He was very cool-headed, quiet and did not cause trouble. “It is too unfortunate and I miss him. I have even started clearing my farm, hoping that he would come home after his first semester to help me. “It was because of him that I tried to extend my farm. He was still growing with a lot of stamina and he loved school and farming. We used to farm together before I lost him.” Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, Kokumo, said the suspect arrested in connection with the killings was still being profiled and he would be charged to court soon. Kokumo added, “We have arrested one person and the person will appear in court. We are investigating, profiling him. We want to ensure that we are able to lay hands on other members of the gang.”
  6. The Oyo State Police Command has arrested sixteen herdsmen, who allegedly kidnapped officials of the West African Examinations Council in Kishi area of the state. Briefing newsmen at the Command headquarters on Thursday, the State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Odude said the suspects were nabbed by the police who worked with local vigilante in an operation that lasted for 10 days. The police boss disclosed that they were allegedly recruited from Zamfara State by a kingpin who is also from Zamfara. He is still being wanted by the police after he escaped arrest. Odude said the gang kidnapped many people and killed some of them, with huge ransom collected before they released some of their victims. “A deadly dare devil murderous itinerant armed robbery and kidnap gang had been terrorising the peaceful town of Kishi , Igboho and Igbeti in Oyo State, killing innocent victims after dispossessing them of their valuables,” he said. “The hoodlums, numbering about 25 , who are mainly herdsmen, were recruited by one Kire, a notorious armed robbery kingpin from Zmfara State. They hide their victims in their seemingly impregnable fortress at the Old Oyo National Park for some days before freeing them after collecting huge ransom from their distraught and helpless family members. “Working with local vigilante in the area, the police, after receiving a report about the gang’s activities , busted the gang and three suspected members arrested. “They are Mohammed Kote, 25 ; Mohammad Legi , 26 and Kire Babuga, 20. They were arrested in their criminal hideout along Kishi/Igboho road and inside the Old Oyo National Park, Igbeti.” The police boss said the operation led to the arrest of 16 members of the gang while more are being hunted.
  7. Troops of 3 Division Garrison Jos Plateau State arrested 7 suspects and recovered weapons in the clash between Miango community and herdsmen at Rafiki Village few days ago. The troops responded to distress calls to the clash reported by locals. As troops moved in to settle the dispute, the herdsmen opened fire on troops convoy. 2 soldiers paid the supreme price. 7 suspects were arrested in connection with the clashes. While conducting search, troops discovered 23 dead bodies at Mararaba Dare shortly before Rafiki Village and many civilians were wounded. 2 other soldiers wounded are receiving medical attention at 3 Division Military Hospital and Medical Services. They are stable. Weapons recovered include one Ak 47 assault rifle with 26 rounds of 7.62mm special and One locally made single barrel loaded with 15 rounds. The troops later intensified patrol within the general area to forestall further break down of law and other.
  8. According to reports, a gang of Fulani herdsmen, on Wednesday morning, killed four soldiers and injured many others in Miango, Plateau State. Military sources told SaharaReporters that the soldiers were travelling in the convoy of their Garrison Commander. A soldier, who visited one of his injured colleagues at the 3rd Division Military Hospital within the Maxwell Khobe Cantonment, said the victim, Corp0ral Maidugu, sustained died at the hospital after sustaining gunshot wounds.
  9. Read the article by FFK below “Labelling the attackers as Fulani is wrong. Fulani people are peaceful and live in harmony with other ethnicities. To call the killer herdsmen Fulani is a misnomer. They are just criminals and not Fulani criminals”- Vice President Atiku Abubakar, 11 March 2018, Thisday Newspaper. Is it so difficult for us to accept the ugly truth and to call a spade a spade? Must we continue to mock the memories of those that have been slaughtered by shielding those who butchered them? Have we no shame or remorse? Are this childish semantics and infantile denials really necessary? I have immense respect and affection for Vice President Atiku Abubakar and it stretches back for many years but this assertion shocks and surprises me. It is most unlike him to speak in this way. And I happen to know that he is far bigger and better than this. There are however some ugly realities that we have to accept and live within this country and this is one of them. Living in denial cannot solve the problem: it can only aggravate it and make it worse. It is bad enough that hardly any Fulani leaders have come out to publicly condemn the activities of their herdsmen but to condemn the horrendous acts and then attempt to shield the racial identity of those behind it by saying that they are not Fulani is even worse. Permit me to expand on this. Saying that the Fulani terrorists are not Fulani is rather like saying that Adolf Hitler’s Nazis, who gassed 6 million Jews to death in concentration camps during World War 1, were not German. It is like saying that Abubakar Shekau and his Boko Haram footsoldiers, who have slaughtered thousands of our people over the last few years, are not Muslims and are not Nigerians. It is like saying that the white Boers who owned and ran apartheid-South Africa, who slaughtered the black African population and who regarded them as nothing more than animals that were only fit for breeding and slave labour, were not Caucasians and did not originally come from Holland in western Europe. Such assertions fly in the face of logic, have no basis in veracity, are manifestly irrational and are deeply insulting. Not only are they deeply flawed but, worst of all, they are designed to conceal the truth and obstruct any future attempt to bring the perpetrators to justice. And if Atiku Abubakar or anyone else insists on saying that the killer herdsmen are not Fulani then perhaps they could tell us exactly what they are, who they are and where they come from? Are they from Mars? Are they from Pluto? Are they from the moon? Or are they from the dark and sinister Vulture Mountain and the infamous “land of the bitter waters” in Futa Jalon, Guniea? Last year Governor Nasir El Rufai told the world that they are non-Nigerian Fulanis and that they were from Niger, Mali, Chad and other such places. Atiku has now gone a step further by saying that they are not Fulani at all, whether local or foreign! This consistent and constant denial from Fulani leaders has to stop. They must accept the fact that some of their people are naturally murderous and they must do something about it. We must not shy away from challenging anyone who attempts to becloud this issue or mislead the Nigerian people. It does not matter if we happen to be in the same political party or in different ones. If anyone, no matter how highly placed or respected, crosses the line or indulges in any shape or form of mendacity and deception in this matter, we must and will call that person out. That is what leadership is all about. And this is all the more important because the situation appears to be getting worse and, if we are not careful, it may escalate into a full scale religious and tribal war that would cause Nigeria to cease to exist. Consider the words of Mr. Magnus Oraka who is from Jos and whose community was attacked just a few days ago. He posted a moving and emotional video from his hometown on Facebook yesterday in which he spoke with courage and passion. He said, “This Fulani attack and killing is a war against Nigeria and war against Christians. It is not APC vs PDP, it is Muslim vs Christian. We don’t have weapons to defend ourselves, all we have are sticks. God Punish Buhari, God punish those of you that voted for Buhari, God punishes those that are still supporting Buhari. Look at my face! I am in Jos: come and meet me!” To buttress his point about the religious dimension of the conflict, according to the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) many Churches have been burnt down by Fulani herdsmen all over the country in the last three years. 60 of them were burnt down in Benue state in the last few weeks whilst over 1000 have been burnt down in Southern Kaduna alone in the last three years! If this were simply a conflict over land rights and a struggle between tribes and ethnic nationalities why on earth are Churches being targetted by the Fulani as well? Whichever way you look at it, clearly the victims and members of the indigenous communities that are under siege are getting fed up. Their backs are up against the wall and they are eager to defend themselves and hit back. And given what they have been subjected to over the years and particularly since Buhari came to power three years ago, who can blame them? Most importantly they are under no illusion and have no doubt about who the aggressors, attackers and perpetrators are and where they come from. The truth is that not only are these barbarians and genocidal maniacs that take delight in indulging in mass murders Fulani but they are also NIGERIAN Fulanis. They are inspired, led, guided, funded, supported and protected by Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore and the Miyetti Allah Cattle Herders Association which are both organisations that are made up of Fulanis and that are headed by the Fulani Sultan of Sokoto and the Fulani Emir of Kano. The Chairman of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, one Abdullahi Bello Bodejo, is Fulani as well just as are all the leaders of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association like one Garus Gololo. Finally, their Life Patron is another Fulani by the name of President Muhammadu Buhari. At one time or the other every single one of these individuals together with many other Fulani leaders such as the spokesman of the Arewa Consultative Forum, the notorious and rabidly pro-northern Fulani supremacist, Professor Ango Abdullahi, have tried to defend, justify and rationalise the outrageous and barbaric behaviour of their members and Fulani kinsmen. They have said that the killings were inescapable, unpreventable and justified and that the Fulani herdsmen had every right to attack and slaughter innocent and defenceless people, including women and children, simply because those people were obstructing the free movement of Fulani cattle from one part of the country to another. They also accused them of preventing the Fulani cows from eating their crops and of building houses on some fictitious and non-existent cattle routes which they claim that our erstwhile British colonial masters had allegedly granted them as far back as 1904! Miyetti Allah itself went further by alluding to the fact that they were pleased with Buhari’s luke-warm and indifferent attitude to the whole matter and indeed the way that he has run the country over the last three years and that if he was not re-elected as President in 2019 they would “burn Nigeria to the ground”. Knowing all this, for someone to now say that the killers are not Fulani is clearly an attempt to mislead the public and to befuddle the issues. The Fulani leaders MUST accept that they own this problem and they must take full responsibility for the brutality, savagery and unacceptable behaviour of their people. We must stop the deceit. There is no room for political correctness here or attempting to sweep the truth under the carpet. I say this because dozens of innocent people are being killed every day. Furthermore, it is disingenuous and unfair to expect us not to call the terrorists who and what they really are: Fulani terrorists. We call them that because they are committing crimes against humanity and because they are members of the Fulani race. If any Fulani leader is uncomfortable with that and does not want us to call them what they are then they are best advised to counsel and control their Fulani brothers and tell them to stop behaving like animals and killing our people. Only a Fulani man will say that it is wrong or that it is a misnomer to call a killer Fulani herdsman and a Fulani terrorist what he is. Such a man that is not ready to call a spade a spade cannot be taken seriously. Let us make no mistake about it: today's struggle is not just about party politics or getting Buhari out of power in 2019. The struggle is far bigger than that and it is essentially about securing our liberation. We are fighting to be free and to win our liberation from the hegemony, tyranny, cruelty and barbarity of the Fulani who have slaughtered our people like flies over the last three years and who insist on ruling our nation in perpetuity and turning us all into little more than paupers, beggars and slaves. If that makes some uncomfortable it is simply too bad and it changes nothing. The truth is that it is time for us to call a spade a spade and to stop pampering the enemy or massaging his ego. If the Fulani want to be treated with decorum, respect and affection and if any Fulani man ever wishes to have a hope in hell of being elected President of our country ever again, the genocide and ethnic cleansing that they unleash on our people on a daily basis must stop. Anything short of that is unacceptable. Permit me to share the words of Mr. Samson Tannon Tongman who said the following: “The agenda is bigger than Atiku. It is jihad, land grab and Islamization. All northerners must fall in line, including Atiku”. This is an insighful and deeply profound observation. It also provides a veritable explanation for the doublespeak that virtually every single northern Muslim leader, including a liberal and otherwise benign and reasonable one like Atiku, indulges in when it comes to the nefarious and unspeakable atrocities of the Fulani herdsmen and terrorists. It appears that Mr. Opeyemi Oluyade was right when he said, “this is the time for liberation politics, not party politics: liberation from the Fulani”. Permit me to conclude this contribution with the words of embattled Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state whose people have been subjected to nothing less than genocide and have suffered immeasurably at the hands of the Fulani terrorists in the last three years. A few days ago he hosted President Buhari in his state and said, “On 30th May 2017, the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore in a ‘World Press Conference’ held in Abuja, opposed the Ranching Law. They called on Fulani herders in all of West Africa to come into Benue to help them reclaim their land. In the same vein, Miyetti Allah Cattle Herders Association in their Press Conference declared that more blood will flow in Benue if the Ranching Law is not rescinded. Your Excellency, as a President that supports the Rule of Law, you will most certainly be offended by these hate speeches that may have crossed the red line. Your Excellency, how can a group claim responsibility for the killings that happened and are going about scot free? How can a group make public these inciting and criminal declarations in an organized society and are not arrested by the Police? Your Excellency, kindly orders the immediate arrest and prosecution of the leadership of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore and Miyetti Cattle Breeders Association for carrying out their threats to attack Benue on account of the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law, 2017”. This is wise and courageous counsel from Ortom and it is long overdue. I agree with him that the leaders of Miyetti Allah should be arrested but I would go a step further by suggesting that the organisation should also be prescribed and declared as a terrorist organisation. From the foregoing, it appears that not everyone has been fooled or persuaded by the misleading assertion and perfidious narrative that those that are carrying out the killings are not Fulani. Governor Ortom knows that they are Fulani just as does every other discerning and sensible Nigerian. Furthermore by stating their intention to spill even more blood and kill every soul in Benue state and elsewhere simply because of the passing of the Anti-Grazing Bill, Miyetti Allah has not only confessed to their heinous crimes against humanity but they have also relished them, boasted about them and have made it abundantly clear that they intend to kill many more innocent people, including women and children. What more evidence do we need to prove that these terrorists and mass murderers are indeed Fulani and that they have no intention of stopping the carnage until the people of southern and Middle Belt Nigeria are either completely wiped out and ethnically cleansed off the face of the earth or are ready to submit to them, give them all their land, give them all their farms and bow to their cows? Those that are eager to mislead the world, becloud the issues, brush the filth under the carpet and cover the tracks of these bloodthirsty beasts should answer that question. Permit me to conclude this contribution with the following. Every day since the beginning of this year Fulani terrorists have killed people in one part of Nigeria or the other and the number of those murdered over the last three years has entered into the thousands. On Thursday 15th March 2018, 35 innocent people, including women and children, were slaughtered in Kogi state as well. The state has not passed an Anti-Grazing Law, its people have not blocked any cow-grazing routes and it’s Governor, a young Igbira businessman by the name of Yahaya Bello, is a bumbling slave of the Fulani and a self-deprecating acolyte of Buhari who donated 15,000 hectares of state land to the herdsmen for the establishment of the infamous cattle ranches. For those who say that the reason that the Fulani terrorists butcher innocent people is that of the Anti-Grazing Law, blocked grazing routes, hostility to them from the local indigenous population, hatred for Buhari or the refusal to establish cattle ranches, how do you explain this? The truth is that there is no reason for their sociopathic and genocidal behaviour other than the fact that they are murderous by nature and they wish to wipe out entire indigenous populations all over Nigeria in order to take their land, steal their mineral resources, R@pe their women, conquer their souls, enslave their people and break their spirit. It is their legendary brutality that qualified them to be the slave raiders for the Europeans and the Arabs during the days of the slave trade. No-one, not even the cowards and quislings amongst us like Yahaya Bello that sell their souls and trade their birthright to them, that role out the red carpet to receive them and that bow and tremble before they are safe or exempt from their sociopathic barbarity and their psychopathic savagery. That is a bitter lesson that many in our country still have to learn. You cannot appease a ravenous and insatiable snake and you cannot befriend a wild and hungry beast.
  10. Three herdsmen identified as Iliya Garba, Hassan Abdullahi, and Lanshak Lonfalk, who was charged with criminal conspiracy and open nomadic livestock rearing and grazing, an offence punishable under Sections 97 of the Penal Code and 19 (2) of the Open Grazing Prohibition Ranches Establishment Law of Benue, 2017, were sentenced to a year imprison each for violating the law. The herdsmen were arrested on February 18 in a joint patrol team of `Operation Zenda,' led by Sgt. Edward Shinyi, and were brought to the State Criminal and Investigation Department, Makurdi according to their prosecutor Insp. Michael Iorundu. "The team reported that the three herders, and others now at large, were openly grazing their cattle along Yeluwata Road in Guma Local Government Area of Benue. When the case came up for a mention, the herders pleaded guilty to the charge against them, saying that they were not aware that open grazing had been prohibited in Benue,'' he said. However, before sentencing them, the Magistrate, Mrs Lillian Tsumba who noted that the herders were first offenders who were also illiterates and not even aware that open grazing has been prohibited in Benue, said a law is law and must be obeyed in spite ignorance. She also gave the herdsmen the option of N500,000 fine, or they go on with their prison sentence. Mrs Lillian Tsumba further disclosed that the open grazing prohibition law required massive exposure and education of persons at the grassroots. The sentencing is coming few days after the Nigerian army launched an exercise which will serve as a training avenue for troops and dovetail into an operation, to combat herdsmen attacks. Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State who was present at the launch rocked a military attire to the event. The exercise named "Ayem-A- Kpatuma, a Tiv word meaning "Cat race", will be conducted in Benue, Taraba, Kaduna, Kogi, Nasarawa, and Niger states, and is scheduled to take off on 31st March.
  11. Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has declared three days of mourning for dead victims of herdsmen attacks on communities in Logo and Guma Local Government Areas of the State. The governor, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase and made available to newsmen, disclosed that the mourning period would commence from Tuesday to Thursday, this week, which will end with a church service for the victims at the IBB Square in Makurdi, followed by mass burial. Ortom said flags would fly at half-mast within the mourning period while work will close at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday. It will be a work-free day on Thursday being the day for the church service and burial of the victims.
  12. Peter Aboh, a final year student of Microbiology at Federal University, Lafia in Nasarawa State, who was one of the victims of Fulani herdsmen killings in Benue State recently has been buried. Facebook user, Chukwudi Iwuchukwuwho shared photos from his burial ceremony wrote; “Peter Aboh was a final year student of Micro Biology at the Federal University, Lafia in Nasarawa State. He was due to graduate in 8 months. Before Fulani herdsmen gruesomely murdered him in his home in Utonkon in Ado LGA”
  13. A pioneer of Miyetti Allah cows reproducers in Benue State, Garus Gololo, has unveiled that herders assaulted a few groups in the state as backlash for charged robbery of cows. Herders had assaulted groups in Guma and Logo nearby government regions of the state between Monday, January 1 and Tuesday, January 2, leaving some dead. Addressing BBC Pidgin, he clarified that the herders were just protecting themselves from cheats. The herder asserted that more than 1000 dairy animals were stolen at Nengere, a group in the state when the herders were moving out of Benue to Taraba state. Gololo stated: "As we dey migrate go Taraba State through Nassarawa State, for bordertown of Nengere, cheat come gather 1000 dairy animals from us, so we sef battle dem back." He uncovered that the emergency broke out while the herders were endeavoring to ensure and shield themselves and their property.
  14. Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media Lauretta Onochie, has subtly claimed that ex-President Goodluck Jonathan is responsible for the killings perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen across the country. Onochie made the remark while faulting former Jonathan’s aide, Reno Omokri’s claim that Nigeria has become an abattoir. Sharing a post of one Aliyu Abdullahi, via her social media pages, Onochie said Jonathan is the Grand Patron of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association. The post reads, “When Reno Omokri wrote his piece, “Nigeria, A Nation Once now an Abbatoire, I saw no need to respond to him, knowing that he is a habitual liar, he has lied many times before using his name and other aliases. “This time around also I knew he was lying when he said President Muhammadu Buhari was somehow complicit in the Herdsmen vs. Farmers clash because he was a Patron of Miyetti Allah Association, which is not true by the way. “It was just a deliberate attempt to cause mischief, fan the embers of hatred among citizens and their leader, politicise a very tragic event but he failed to produce even a little of evidence. So, should we believe the words of a lying Pastor in an era of fake Prophets? “Lo and behold who is the real Life Patron of Miyetti Allah, not any other person but his erstwhile boss, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. So should we assume that Jonathan was behind the incessant and condemnable attacks which predated President Muhammadu Buhari Administration?” Source: DalyPost
