We will just go straight to the point.
Fulani herdsmen are the 4th most violent terror group in the world. We didn’t make up that statistics.
President Muhammadu Buhari is the grand patron of Fulani herdsmen association. We didn’t make up this too.
For months, Fulani herdsmen have ravished many parts of the country. They have [neutralized] Hausas, Tiv, Jukun, Nupe, Yoruba, Igbo and everyone else they interpret as a threat.
Granted, not all Fulani herdsmen are terrorists, but almost all Fulanis who roam with cattle are armed.
We didn’t make this up; the President has affirmed it too.
This position was disclosed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo who is currently in Houston Texas for a Town hall meeting with Nigerians in Diaspora.
The Vice President revealed that President Buhari had directed security agencies to arrest violent Fulani herdsmen and those in possession of firearms.
The vice president also noted that the issue of [neutralization] by violent Fulani herdsmen had been a perennial issue.
He said the unfortunate act seem to have exacerbated owing to disappearance of grazing lands.
According to him, “There have always been a conflict between herdsmen and communities across the country.
“People should disabuse the notion that the problem has just started because President Buhari is a man.
“The matter predates the Buhari administration and should not be misconstrued as a religious issue.
“The President has given firm instructions to security agencies to arrest Fulani herdsmen who are attacking communities anywhere in the country.
“He also gave instructions to arrest anyone of them or anyone at all in possession of firearms.
“So far, security operatives have arrested about 800 of suspected violent herdsmen in the country that are currently in custody.”
Yemi Osinbajo decried the slow pace of the criminal justice system which is affecting the prompt trial of such suspects.
