Solution to Southern Kaduna crisis lies outside Nigeria – Fulani leader

The assistant national secretary general of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, MACBAN, Ibrahim Abdullahi, has said that the solution to the lingering crisis in southern part of Kaduna state lies outside Nigeria.

Southern Kaduna has been experiencing violent crisis for years now. The latest spell of violence has claimed hundreds of lives.

Killings have continued deployment of security forces to the area.

The latest killings occurred on February 20 when unknown gunmen invaded communities in two local governments Jema’a and Kauru, killing at least 14 people.

The attacks have largely been blamed on Fulani herdsmen, said to be carrying out reprisal killings following the alleged killing of herdsmen and their livestock in the area during the 2011 post-election violence.

Speaking to PREMIUM TIMES in Kaduna recently, Mr. Abdullahi said most of the Fulani people involved in the killings were not Nigerians. Similar claim by the state government sparked outrage.

“It has to do with foreign nomads coming into the country. There are three or four international grazing routes, most of which passed through Kaduna state,” he said.

“Two of the routes are from Cameroun down through Lere and Kauru local governments, another one is from Chad Republic that came through southern part of Plateau state down to Zangon-Kataf and there is another one from Niger Republic through Kano/ Katsina down to Kaduna,” he said.

Mr. Abdullahi said it so happened that herders who were moving their cattle for greener pasture got caught up in the post-election violence.

“Many of them were killed including their cows and some of the cows were taken away. Those of them who survived returned to their homes and reported what happened.

“We got to know that most of them spread across Cameroon and Chad swore to come back for revenge. We therefore, advised the governor at the time, the Late Yakowa, to take urgent action.

“The governor agreed with us and formed a committee to go and meet with the Fulani leaders wherever they are and reconcile with them,” he said.

Yakowa’s effort

Mr. Abdullahi said the late governor also agreed with the advice given to him to compensate all those who experienced losses in the attacks, and he agreed.

“As a result, we started meeting with all those we know have been affected. I was mandated to go to Cameroon and Chad Republic.

“My first port of call is to a Fulani leader I know that lost over 200 cows and about six boys. I arrived his house in the evening and told him I was an emissary of the governor of Kaduna state over the unfortunate killing of his boys and cows.

“He asked me to go and rest since I came from a far place and that he would talk to me in the morning. Early in the morning, he invited me for breakfast and I narrated to him my mission.

“He said he was shocked that the governor had the guts to send someone to him after ordering the killing of his boys because they are Muslims and I told him that his information was wrong.

“I said I am a Muslim and truly the governor is a Christian, but, I also told him that most Muslims like me in Kaduna are willing to take the risk I took for Yakowa because he was a good man and would never order the killing of anyone.

“The man said he agreed with me and if anything, the fact that the governor agreed something was wrong and took the step he was taking showed that he was a good leader of his people. Tell him I have forgiven him, I don’t need any compensation and that he has a new emissary in me as far as Cameroon is concerned.

“I will make sure I reach out to all the other affected families in Cameroon on behalf of your governor,” he said.

Mr. Abdullahi added that his host took him to a warehouse within the man’s estate and what he saw shocked him.

“I saw all sorts of sophisticated weapons and I was told they were kept in readiness for a revenge attack in Southern Kaduna,” he said.

He also said the man invited him for a “short trip” into the forest and he saw a large camp and several young men receiving all forms of training on warfare.

“Shockingly, these boys were being trained by white men,” he said.

Mr. Abdullahi said he bid the man farewell but could not proceed to Chad Republic as arranged because he was running short of money.

“I decided to return to Kaduna and I met the governor the next day and gave him my report.

“The governor told me that he was travelling the next day to the South South and would remobilise us to go to Chad for the second part of our assignment, unfortunately, Governor Yakowa died in a helicopter crash,” he said.

Mr. Abdullahi said when former Governor Ramalan Yero took over, they met with him and gave him the report of what had been done so far and the need to complete the task.

“Our fear is that any other family affected in the attacks would have known that we were in Cameroon to appeal, especially those in Chad Republic.

“Our failure to go and meet them as far as they are concerned is because they do not matter. I expressed that fear to the former governor. He simply collected the report and said he would get in touch; he never did,” he said.

The Fulani leader said it is good that Governor El-Rufai has continued from where the late Yakowa stopped.

Mr. El-Rufai admitted at the peak of the crisis that he sent payments to the suspected killers outside of Nigeria, as compensation for their losses.

The governor defended his action as being in continuation of what Mr. Yakowa died.

  • Base Okonjo

    Na waooo. That means the whole Bauchi state will be wiped out if this story is anything to go by. Because corpers were murdered in cold blood. And what a nice time for the revenge. And finally if I may ask what prompted the 2011 post election violence in the first place?

    • Baka

      Apart from Bauchi, corpers were also murdered in other states. My bigot why do you only remember Bauchi? You want to tell us that a crime in the north is of more interest than similar crime in the south.

      • Base Okonjo

        My question is what even led to the post election crisis of 2011? If I get u right let ur militia wipe out the whole of southern Kaduna so that crime in the north will equal that in the south.

      • grand maze

        If Fulani kills Fulani, there might not be revenge so also if a southerner is killed in the south, there might not be revenge. The Fulani code is to revenge any killing against them by others so I think others should also hold them by the same code and revenge any death they cause to them.

  • Galantman

    This is the first we hearing from the other side of the divide. So it’s the late governor Yakowa that started negotiations with the foreign terrorists. We need to be careful because for hundreds of years fulani have stayed with there Neigbour’s peacefully, but tribal and religious ignorant bigots will open there mouth and said all sorts of inflammatory careless statements.
    The onus on the Nigerian Fulani to provide intelligence on the movement of the foreign terrorists to security agency so that they could be dealt with ruthlessly, no negotiations.

    • Senator D

      “The onus on the Nigerian Fulani to provide intelligence on the movement of the foreign terrorists to security agency so that they could be dealt with ruthlessly, no negotiations.” Can you just take a deep breath and read your lines again? Do you know these are ONLY a group of individuals and Nigeria is a Nation and Country under the Charter of of Nations? NO group of persons can take a revenge on another group without recourse to constituted laws which makes these Fulanis both local and foreign culpable in genocidal attacks. If their cows were slaughtered or killed their are right channels to follow NOT to take human lives. The government that failed to protect those lives is also culpable and guilty…Inclusive of Buhari and El Rufai…

      • Galantman

        Please next time try to have just a little knowledge on any issue before you jump into the fray and disgrace yourself.
        El Rufai is right, the Fulani are notorious for taking revenge and can take years planning it , especially if it involves there cows. To the Fulani cow is the most and ultimate possession. Let me add that I do not support the killing of human beings because of animals. That is the truth, ask any one who have stayed with the Fulani for years will tell you this. But let me add, the Fulani that we know right from childhood are very peaceful and never involved themselves in any trouble. This is the Gospel truth. I’m shocked that you are talking about UN Charter to defend terrorists. Forget about UN Charter anyone who crosses international borders to cause mayhem deserve no mercy.

        • grand maze

          I think other ethnic groups should learn from the Fulani to avenge themselves too. Let’s see what becomes of Nigeria. A cauldron of unrelenting violence.

    • Senator D

      El-Rufai’s tweet in 2012 reads: “We will write this for all to read. Anyone, soldier or not that kills the Fulani takes a loan repayable one day no matter how long it takes.”

  • Rommel

    I am appalled by this information,how can there be grazing routes from Niger republic into Nigeria as if no borders exist,or from Tchad and Cameroon into Nigeria,do those people pay customs duty when entering Nigeria? or does importation of agricultural products no longer attract duties on them? we need clarification how this cross border grazing is conducted because people from Equatorial Guinea do not paddle into Nigeria without going through coast guard,something is wrong here

    • persona

      Its a code of silence. We are made to believe that there are no grazing routes up north so the herdmen come down south, so which grass do the foreign cattle eat?
      The reason they all chose to stay silent is because we will burst the conspiracy. Notice that E-Rufai likewise didn’t say a word about the ransom money till he was caught pants down.
      The fact is this, the other 2 paths have been relatively peaceful, how come the troublesome ones only pass Z.Kataf?
      The evil that people do, does live after them.
      I can tell you that the reason this man offered this story is, he needs funds that Yero didn’t give him now and its why he chose to speak.
      This man who chose not to tell security agencies about the stockpile of arms he saw is obviously complicit and should be interrogated for his see all evil and say no evil stand.

    • Shahokaya

      The gracing routes were demarcated by colonialists. From Senegal to Central Africa ,and from Mali to Chad, the pastoralists have been moving to and from even before these countries become independent.

      • taiwo

        OK. Does it then follow that the independent countries within those routes could not have renegotiated the terms of use of these routes?

      • Babagordy

        Ol boy colonialist still they demarcate your land

    • okenwa

      You never see anything yet.

    • Epsilon_Delta

      Nazi man, your Buhari is the grand patron of this MACBAN.

  • persona

    Is it this hard to figure out that commonsense solves problems and not money in Kaduna State?
    How much could the governor have given to this man that took him on a single trip, was housed and fed by his host and yet, he ran out of funds but same could take him back to KD?
    How is it that with all he saw, he refused to tell security agencies that a potential army was being trained and southern KD may burn with all the arms he saw?
    Is it not curious that someone of El-Rufai will send money that was not budgeted to adversaries and still have the effrontery to say he paid for blackmail?
    Why is it that the 3 recognized routes which takes several hundreds of KM to walk has now been unmanned and yet, the governor has a retinue of security aides?
    If these guys kill according to the statement here, do they then vanish or they walk the same route of over a hundred KM back to their base?
    If indeed we know the locations or bases of these 3 main groups, how come a nation to nation outreach was never done?
    I suspect that the reason for all these is that the Fulanis know however it happens, they will be spared and so, its ok to play dead since the invaders are their brothers.
    Is it not time to now investigate the remote and immediate causes of the Yakowa chopper crash? How are sure that just as the governor told his emissary he was headed for the SS, a larger plot to retire the man was not in play?
    Yakowa had a very troubling time as governor, he was hated based on his faith and from this account, Fulanis abroad knew this and didn’t mind taking him out hence the training and the arms.
    Commonsense will also dictate that the people of Southern Kaduna are just easy targets and the immediate point and kill for those that can get to the governors since Yakowa.
    Overall, its a good thing(Ironically) that this southern KD issue happened, one can only imagine what El-Rufai will be doing in Abuja in the absence of Buhari?

  • Shahokaya

    For the first time the press has decided to speak to the other side. Nobody wants war, but then wars are never won on the pages of newspapers. We all know that what matters most to pastoralists whether in America, Kenya , Southern Africa or Fulani is their herds. If a Fulani man who does not own anything in the world apart from his cows, suddenly found that certain people have stolen all the cattle and killed his children because of election that he did not even register , and and does not vote and will never meet any of those elected, you are certainly turning him into a either a terrorist or a criminal.

    • persona

      But that doesn’t explain the payout which was according to El-Rufai as negotiation and yet a reprisal.
      I am of the view that there is more to this story and the fact that the speaker never reported the stockpile of arms he saw is worrisome.
      The grazing paths are well known, how come we have more security in government house than along those routes even if for ISR?
      You will notice that the remote cause was post election violence, who did the violence is the question? Was anyone held responsible on the Nigerian side? The southern KD guys didn’t cause the issue, how are they then the victim?

    • grand maze

      The southern youth corpses who were killed during that riot, how many of their families took guns to go for revenge. This government should simply mobilise a commando operation to all the suspected families outside the country and erase them. That is what America would do when faced with such external terrorism.

      • OJERINDE, Olatunde A.

        Your solution is right simply Because that is what america would have done….and you think you are anything better than trump?

        • Senator D

          Stop hiding under a Yoruba name… Lagido Oshi…

        • grand maze

          What do you call external aggression? When a people train and arm themselves then invade, kill and sack your people in their territories. To me it is an ACT OF WAR. The government is duty bound to defend its citizens against external aggression. What more atrocity will be carried out in Nigeria before it considers war an option. It is because the government is not treating this issue with the seriousness it deserves, makes it to linger. This goes to show the source of the killer herdsmen tormenting the country. They are well trained from outside then imported to wage war against the country. A dose of their own medicine is quite appropriate. Gather intelligence and storm all their training grounds and hideouts in any border country, wipe them out once and for all. If their originating country want war, then we know they have their government support and we give them war. Period. After all American went after Osama in the country hideout and killed him there, since then the Osama threat is no longer an issue to Americans

        • grand maze

          Mark you, it was not Trump that went to another country to kill Osama but muslim Obama. That tells you that it is the reasonable course of action by any responsible government.

    • Senator D

      You are twisted in your thoughts… You think you have monopoly of violence? No worry very soon you go no say your Papa farm nah garden compared to another person Papa farm… The curse of Gehazi will never depart from the lineage of you Fulanis forever!

  • Babagordy

    This man is a bloody liar, how many people have these Fulani people killed in Mali, Senegal, Sierra Leone , Mali and even Gambia; non. they live in those places as underdogs. Even in Guinee which is their place of origin you dont find them messing with other ethnic groups because they will not let them get away with the kind havoc they are committing against other people in Nigeria. The fact here is some Nigerians are paying the Fulanis to come and kill the rest of us; this nonsense talk about compensation to an intruder must stop.

    • Rommel

      You are flat wrong because this same problem is going on in the entire west Africa,at least Ghana and la cote d’ivoire even in other places like Kenya which is currently embroiled in cattle herders and farmers clashes which has claimed many lives

Those causing problem for us are from Senegal, Niger and Chad. This same Fula are not fighting anybody in their country. What Nigerian politicians are doing by inviting Fula mercenaries to fight their battles is in keeping in line with what Nigerian army did during the civil war and Boko haram is doing presently

    Illiterate Fulani people and their rulers

    THE ILLITERATE FULANI people don’t need pleading; quite a few actually need beatings.
    Here, their deputy leader in Nigeria says there are international grazing routes. What illiteracy!
    When did international waters have equivalent on the lands; but only for the Fulani, to become
    international grazing routes? The notion that somehow these retarded Fulani in Nigeria can be
    made to see reason is an illusion. Illiterates cannot see reason.

    The supposed Fulani tribal rulers
    who claim to have some education (however dubious, since it doesn’t show in their inability to do
    simple arithmetic
    ), do not know better. Otherwise, the illiterate notion of international grazing route
    would have been swatted off the minds of their kindred illiterate herdsmen who have no idea that
    modern states, like Nigeria, have legal territorial boundaries no foreign herdsman can ingress at will.

    • OJERINDE, Olatunde A.

      There are international grazing routes. That you are ignorant is not an evidence that there is nothing of such. People trade and what they trade in determines how they deal with one another. Even you with all your pigneering called education can not see anything.

      • Senator D

        Can you please tell me where it is gazetted in our Land use act as an international grazing route?

      • Gary

        There are international grazing routes like there was international slave trade. So why not bring back the trans-Saharan Slave Trade since they existed from time immemorial?

        Let the Yoruba claim the people and territories of Benin Republic and Togo since they were always part of the Oyo Empire.
        By your reasoning, if the Fulani can continue to lay claims and wage war based on historical practices, let’s go the whole hog and allow other ethnicities to do same and redraw colonial borders imposed on the region and country.

        It’s amazing the length some of you will go to justify the murderous mayhem and land grab of the Fulani in the Middle Belt.

        • Senator D

          Don’t forget that Lagos once belonged to the Benin Empire… Lagos MUST be returned back to the Benin People!

        Don’t confuse trade with grazing… They are two unique and distinct words even under international definition…

  • Etukudoh

    Breaking up Nigeria into the original countries as they were before 1914 is the ONLY solution. Sure the parasitic regions in Nigeria – West & North will resist BUT the rest of the country MUST realize that there is no other way. A drastic dosage of medication is always required to confront a stubborn affliction or blight.

    • Lanre

      .
      Buhari is the grand patron of this Cattle association Miyutti Alla.h or whatever. He cannot claim to be ignorant of the information this trumpeter has. If so, why has Buhari not arrested or at least queried the Nigerian immigration and customs for allowing people from other countries free access in Nigeria without due clearance and identification? It all points to one fact, we are not a country. How can this be happening in the 21st century?

  • _What_SOLUDO_said

    A former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Prof Chukwuma Soludo, on Thursday in Enugu called for the restructuring of the country and one WHERE IT DOES NOT MATTER WHERE THE PRESIDENT COMES FROM.

    He also warned that Nigeria was drifting towards a failed state, noting that though President Muhammadu Buhari inherited a floundering economy, the “administration only made matters worse”. He said the country was not just in a recession but had degenerated to economic compression, to the point where it has become “a fragile state with a failing economy”.

    Soludo spoke as the former governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke, cautioned that except something happens urgently, the nation would slide to a pathetic state of “anything goes”, acknowledging that Nigeria is a big nation with great potential, the country now reasons like a small nation finding it difficult to earn the respect of the world.

    peace be upon you all. the issue of southern kaduna was there right before nineties, the cause was known. only that those that think the only way to gain recognition from their people and steal their wealth is through chaos, instigations and blaming others using religion and tribal institutions etc. these are religious leaders and politician . masses should tell themselves the truth

  • Emeka Osisi

    My personal mantra in life is “The Truth is Obvious”. The truth of the Fulani issues in west Africa is obvious. It’s is a three pronged attack to seize hold of all political institutions, Arrable Lands and people of the green Africa. This is a stupendous notion but it isn’t far from the truth. My own solution to this problem is simple. Take away that thing that brings them to the south which is the cow market. Southern Nigeria has all the water, green scape and favourable weather to grow good food and rear fat and healthy animals. Southern Nigeria for Southern Cows. Simple

Whilst Yoruba is going for the Igbo man’s throat and the Ijaw man looking for the Itshekiri man to deal with these Northerners are busy sharing our country into international routes and possessions…

    Let’s assume this argument being put up above by this Abdulahi is even true by what authority can individuals or group of people be bold enough to enter a country, invade a community and cause havoc and walk away scott-free without any recourse to the sovereignty and territorial integrity of that nation… For example, an American kills a Russian in Texas, then all Russians in Canada, Mexico will invade america either in group or as individuals to do a reprisal attack in Texas and America will NOT see it as an attack on the WHOLE NATION? Am trying to understand how these Fulanis have come so far with so much audacity and fearlessness in a country called Nigeria… Yorubas and Igbos and Ijaws and Bendel and so on you guys better unite and say NO to this audacity which has held sway for so so long…

  • Senator D

    • amazing2012

      Yes, that is why you should not have killed them in the first instance. Now they are avenging and you are making noise like canari ! kill them and gets revenged !

      • Victor Ezebuiroh

        Let them venture into the SE with this mindset and see how far. Have you heard that they struck in Abia state again? Nobody has the monopoly of violence. Be careful for what you wished for.

  • Senator D

    NO group of persons can take a revenge on another group without recourse to constituted laws of the land or territory which makes these Fulanis both local and foreign culpable in the genocidal attacks. If their cows were slaughtered or killed their right channels was to follow constituted means to seek redress NOT to take human lives. The government that failed to protect those lives is also culpable and guilty…Inclusive of Buhari and El Rufai…

  • Senator D

    The UN charter of which Nigeria is signatory to allows for freedom of association (Atiku and OBJ when OBJ accused Atiku of anti party activities the court ruled in Atiku’s favour on the grounds of freedom of association). Now if someone refuses to associate with you what you must do under the law is to seek redress in a competent court of jurisdiction NOT kill the person like your Fulani brother Buhari does. So if a people say they don’t want to be associated with Nigeria then you use legal means NOT brutality and intimidation. Remember, Fela Anikulapo Kuti? He insisted that he doesn’t want to be associated with Nigeria… Same also BREXIT…

  • Senator D

    So this is how you guys manipulate words to mean something else? You manipulate Corruption to equal to disobedience to court orders… You manipulate corruption to infringement of right of peaceful space by invading people’s houses in the dead of the night when these persons are highly placed citizens and totally a different arm of government. You manipulate NEPOTISM and CRYONISM to mean appointment of men with “integrity” ONLY from the NORTH and MUSLIMS….You are so pathetic if you think you can bamboozle me into cowering from standing by what I know and any right thinking person can see the truth….

    By the way you now quote ECOWAS but you don’t remember that an ECOWAS court told you to release some people and you damned the judgement? Ain’t you a hypocrite? Reaching out to the same platform you once spitefully looked upon as your source of justification… Now I see why forging or credentials is terribly a bad idea…

  • marc umeh

    This is all a mess. He is saying
    1) that the christians in kaduna killed some fulanis
    2) their relatives in cameroun formed military camps , imported sophisticated weapons and white men to train their boys for a reprisal attack in nigeria.
    3) the same is true in chad and niger.
    Hence the invasion of nigeria by the herdsmen.
    This has continued despite the payment of blood money.
    Well , all this shows how big a rot this country is in.

          • Arabakpura

            Your problem is international while they are seeking to fix a national problem! I don’t think what happens outside should be much of your concern! Remember the Fulani are in small quantity in Nigeria and the Hausa-Fulani contraption is about to fade if what happened in Lagos the other day between the two should be put in context!

          • amazing2012

            “….solution to the lingering crisis in southern part of Kaduna state lies outside Nigeria”.

            That’s very strange honestly! Do Nigerian herdsmen also take their cattle into other countries?

            They do travel to other countries, unfortunately only in Nigeria we (Christians) see them as enemies.

  • Lina

    Tell it to the mariners as they say. The fights and killings predate the 2011 elections and this cannot be used to exonerate the lack of action by this government.
    Why must the Nigerian government put the need of these nomads for grazing route over and above the safety of its people. Is it not easier to close and man these routes than have to put up with the loss of lives and properties they inflict on citizens. This is all happening because the president and the Fulani army (euphemistically called Nigerian Army) are sympathetic to their course.
    Why don’t the army, the police and the security services who descend like a ton of bricks on unarmed innocent citizens – in the name of conducting investigation -deal with these Fulanis. If government can close land routes through which cars are imported into the country, why can’t they close the grazing routes?
    All this pussyfooting around is simply because the nomads are Fulanis.

  • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

    The serial massacres of Nigerian Christians of southern Kaduna is an orchestrated act of religious violence disguised as herdsmen attacks. The killers are Fulani people born and bred in Nigeria, the diversionary tactics of blaming foreigners is an old excuse which can no more be tenable.

    • Gary

      There are Fulani all over the Sahelian zone of West Africa as well as Hausas and other ethnicities that came into contact with Islam from North Africa and Arabia.

      It was only in Nigeria that the Fulani conquered the Hausas and assimilated them into Islamic culture.

      We must ask ourselves why it is only in Nigeria that the Fulani claim grazing routes and rights take no cognizance of international and state borders. The Fulani lay no such claim to territories in Ghana, Togo, Ivory Coast and we are yet to hear of herdsmen militia terrorizing the citizens of those countries.

      The Fulani outside Nigeria respect the laws and borders of those other countries but are given free rein in Northern Nigeria because they see the region as conquered territory bequeathed to them by Uthman Dan Fodio.
      Now with desertification and having embezzled decades of federal funds for the Ministry of Water Resources and the numerous River Basin Commissions, the herdsmen are now forcefully pushing into the lands of the non-Moslem peoples of the Middle Belt.
      Buhari, El-Rufai and their people know this and Buhari said as much when he told the Emir of Katsina in Hausa that his people cannot be pushed into the desert.

      That is the subtext of the unending struggle to subjugate the people of Southern Kaduna and the Middle Belt and take over their lands for grazing and Islam.
      This is the second Jihad.

      • GusO

        Well, not quite right. Grazing routes and rights is enshrined in ECOWAS constitution. The cause of the Southern Kaduna serial disturbances for decades is not just because of herdsmen. Herdsmen have accidentally become embroiled in it for a variety of reasons I don’t have the time to go into. But suffice it to say it’s centuries old grudge of Southern Kaduna Christians being ruled by Fulani emirs and the perception that they still do have a fair share of the cake even in the glaringly Southern Kaduna town of Kafanchan. It is also instructive to note that Southern Kaduna is PDP while the Hausa-Fulani dominated Northern Kaduna is APC.

        • Gary

          There’s a difference between ECOWAS protocols in free movement of persons and simply surrendering national borders to an influx of migrant pastoralists wielding AK-47 assault rifles.
          There is a reason why the herdsmen head for Nigeria and are not causing similar dislocations in the other ECOWAS countries with land for grazing. The same reason that the Boko Haram insurgency easily gained root in Borno State before spreading to the neighboring countries for refuge and recruits.
          How many of the ECOWAS states with Hausas and Fulani populations are governed by Sharia Law? Even those with overwhelming Moslem populations like Senegal, Guinea and Burkina Faso?
          Let’s call a spade a spade and stop obfuscating issues. Water follows the line of least resistance. The Fulani Diaspora has found Nigeria the most hospitable territory for their culture and politics. For obvious reasons.

      • amazing2012

        What is wrong with second, thrid and forth Jihad ? If christians will go to every country to kill innocent people in millions because of democracy ?

        • Gary

          That is why Christians must defend themselves or face slaughter by the Jihadists who now want to expand the conquest of Dan Fodio. Boko Haram is now regrouping in Kogi State.
          The people of Nigeria’s Middle Belt are now facing an existential struggle. So thanks for dispensing with the pretense that it is anything else.

          • amazing2012

            Depending themselves from their atrocities? Are you blind to see what the former Benue governor stockedpile ?
            It is not a pretence, but a fact. Christians pretend and commits worst sin on earth, thanks to Pastor Adeboye and Suleman who come out to “state” what they have been commiting against muslims.
            On fulanis, it is not a pretence, you kill them, they will come back to reterliate simple.

      • paul irumundomon

        WHAT DO YOU NEED PROOF FOR

      • Remi

        The proof is simple enough, though deductive.

        In a “normal” and “well-run” society, the kind of southern
        Kaduna tragedy would never have been allowed to happen, let alone leave it to repeatedly
        happen, for well over thirty five years. The pertinent agencies and organs of properly
        run societies will strive, to the utmost – using their powers, competence and
        reach – to prevent such tragedies, in the first instance. And, should it
        eventually happen, such responsible agencies will continue to beat themselves
        and investigate the tragedy, with a view to getting to the bottom of the matter,
        explaining it and averting the tragedy in the future. At the end of their
        investigations, the responsible agencies provide the nation with an official,
        and supposedly rational and objective explanation of what happened, those
        responsible, what they have done etc.; then proceed to assure the nation of their
        readiness to prevent future occurrences. Hence, the official version of the
        event becomes the fulcrum against which arguments about the tragedy revolve or
        the reference point for information on the incident, and one against which
        contrary opinions would have to furnish proof.

        However, trust Nigeria and Nigerians to bastardise procedure
        and processes that work perfectly well elsewhere, usually with fallacious arguments
        and questionable response. At the last
        count, I was able to identify eleven (11) federally-controlled agencies whose
        constitutional responsibility, severally or in combination, include
        intelligence gathering, threat assessment, monitoring and response. Yet, in the southern Kaduna State case, all
        of these agencies have failed; hence everyone is thrashing about for the “truth
        of the matter”. And, of course, whatever
        void truth – as given by those officially and constitutionally mandated to so
        do – does not fill will be filled by conjectures, guesses, theories and even
        outright lies. Then, in a self-indicting and self-condemnatory manner, the
        official agencies, government officials and their apologists respond by
        demanding proof that these “inevitable responses” to their incompetence or negligence
        is true; when they should be the ones leading the way in furnishing the
        truth. How typical of Nigerian
        officialdom and their apologists: game (or sabotage) the system or the rules;
        then in the face of the citizen’s
        inevitable response, demand from them as proof,
        the information you are supposed to have provided, in the first
        instance! In effect, incompetently or conspiratorially fail to perform your
        duties, and then ask those who challenge you to do it for you! How rich!

        The southern Kaduna state situation pre-dates Nigeria and
        has always been the case of Muslim (slave) raiders against non-Muslim autochthonous
        populations; Fulanis attacking, plundering and killing an aboriginal population
        and foreign invaders against an indigenous population. The fact that some
        highly placed persons of Fulani origin, some of them sworn to protect and
        defend the Nigerian constitution: rank the
        law of their tribe over that of the nation-state; have in recent times, engaged
        in herdsmen activism, in spite of their national stature; have made statements
        and carried out actions that strongly indicate their religious bias; come from
        the self-same ethnic stock that have historically attacked, enslaved and sought to Islamise the peoples of southern
        Kaduna state; gives room for suspecting their motives, when they either fail or
        are tardy at dealing with the southern Kaduna state situation. So, what more
        proof do you need? I think we should be wary of using “rules of evidence”
        outside the contexts for which they were designed, and more especially so, in
        the light of that ubiquitous factor in our polity, known as the “Nigerian
        factor”. Sadly, the “Nigerian factor” often makes things that are so easily
        determined elsewhere difficult and convoluted to determine in Nigeria.
