THE ROMANCE BETWEEN THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT AND THE TERRORISM OF FULANI HERDSMEN

By; CCGPC International Correspondent Brother Paul Ihechi Alagba


There is a soft spot the Nigerian government is trailing in its dealing with the militancy of Fulani herdsmen who are committing lots of barbaric killing of innocent civilians across the country especially in the Middle Belt, South West and Biafra regions. In 2015, these Fulani militants who disguise themselves as herdsmen were named as the "fourth most deadly terror group in the world, a feat it achieved after carrying out its terrorist attacks which left more than 1000 dead”.


Records has revealed that ever since Muhammadu Buhari was sworn in as Nigeria President in 2015, the terrorism of the Fulani herdsmen has increased tremendously especially in Christian regions of the country and the sad news is that his administration is doing little or nothing about this menace.


In the first quarter of 2016 alone, the herdsmen has already killed about 600 people in the course of their conflict with local farmers who refuse to sacrifice their arable land and the crops for grazing by the Fulani herders. The most recent of these clashes is the one popularly known as the "AGATU MASSACRE" which occurred in February and in which 500 local farmers, their children and properties were destroyed by the herdsmen. The Agatu massacre has been ranked as the most bloody attack that has ever been launched by the Fulani militants as a result of the casualty figure. This has since sparked outrage among a lot of people in Nigeria.


The herdsmen are also known for the abduction of Monarchs and other high caliber individuals who stand as a barrier to them from invading the communities of their choice. In most cases, these people are either butchered to death or even beheaded while those who are lucky enough to have strong ties with those in authority get released after huge ransoms have been paid.


David Otto Endeley-the Chief Executive of TGS INTELLIGENCE AND SECURITY CONSULTANT in an exclusive  interview I had with him expressed concern that the activities of the herdsmen which has taken a religious connotation is fast evolving into a major security threat in Nigeria-


"... It is definitely developing into a major security threat to local, national and regional stake holders."


"It has caused terror within communities leading to several casualties, destruction and damage to assets and above all, displacement of men, women and children" the London based Counter-terrorism expert noted.


Biafrans have questioned the integrity of the Nigerian Police and military whom they accuse of hypocrisy by their sluggishness in addressing the genocide being perpetrated by the Fulani herdsmen whereas they clamp down on their members who are protesting peacefully. In an interview with one of the activists, he said-


"They are hypocritical in nature of the way they are handling the terrorism of the Fulani herdsmen with our people is quite alarming. This is one of the major reasons we no longer want to remain in Nigeria where our lives and properties are worth nothing to the government"


"This also shows that the herdsmen has the backing of very powerful individuals in the government including the President."


The arrests, of 76 youths protesting against the invasion of the Fulani herdsmen in Enugu by Nigerian forces is a step in the wrong direction. Biafrans have already threatened to shut down Nigeria if all of them are not released with immediate effect.


President Muhammadu Buhari has been criticized by many for his muted stance in commiserating with the victims of havoc caused by the Fulani herders or for even addressing the crisis itself. Even after 500 civilians were killed by the Fulani militants in Agatu. Former Senate President-Senator David Mark who is representing Benue South during his tour to the Agatu community expressed dismay at the atrocities being executed by the herdsmen and the federal government's blind spot to it. In his words-


"I am shocked beyond words at the extent of destruction I have seen here in Agatu today. This is unbelievable. Nothing whatsoever justifies this brazen act of destruction meted out on the people of Agatu. My heart bleeds” the senator cries out. Also, David Otto warned of any complacency on the side of the Nigerian government stating that if left unchecked, the herdsmen crisis may metamorphose into something more deadlier than the Boko Haram.


Meanwhile, there are speculations making the rounds that the fulani militants/herdsmen may be affiliated to the most deadly terror group in the world known as the Boko Haram in one way or another. This is the fear of many Nigerians who are already calling the herdsmen "boko haram in disguise". Counter Terrorism expert David Otto has this to say- "The herdsmen have sophisticated weapons and plan strategic attacks on villages and individuals like conventional organized crime groups. This makes it easy for such groups to easily feed terrorist groups like the Boko Haram directly or indirectly. Their belief in the Islamic religion acts as a powerful bond and push factor.” It is therefor highly imperative the Nigerian Government put all ethnic and religious sentiment aside and tackle with all seriousness the crisis of these herdsmen which is already proving incompetency to guarantee maximum protection of lives and proprieties of it’s citizens. If this is left unchecked, the catastrophic results shall have a multiplying effect.
