EXCLUSIVE: Nigeria’s unreported killing fields

A Tiv farm being ravaged by cattle in a community in Gasso Local Government Area

Esther Mbaterem fled Dan-Anicha, a farming settlement in Gasso Local Government Area of Taraba State in 2001, when her husband and many of her neighbours were murdered during an ethnic war between her native Tiv and their Jukun neighbours. Although she continued to manage the farm her late husband left behind, she and her children relocated to Makurdi, the capital of Nigeria’s North-central state of Benue.

On July 1, 2014, the struggling widow received a phone call that altered the course of her life permanently. A worker on her farm whose father had just died called her to come to Dan-Anicha. As soon as she arrived the farming community, she called a friend to say she had come to pay the salary of staff who work her farm. That visit would turn bloody after persons suspected to be Fulani insurgents cut her with cutlasses and left her for dead.

While Ms. Mbaterem was lucky to escape alive, witnesses, community leaders and officials say hundreds of others have been massacred in seven local government areas of Taraba State where the ethnic crises have persisted. The death toll from the affected areas is said to be over 5,000. Similar attacks in neighbouring Nasarawa and Taraba have also led to hundreds of deaths.

As the battles of the farming fields rage, hundreds of communities lie in ruins. Thousands of buildings, including the signature Tiv round huts, popularly called “Ate”, are empty. Large acreage of cultivated farmlands lie untended in Bali, Donga, Gashaka, Gasso, Ibi, Takum and Wukari local government areas of Taraba State.

In Benue, communities and farms have been ravaged in Makurdi, Guma, Gwer West and Agatu local government areas while in Nasarawa, the attacks have destroyed entire communities in Doma and Keana council areas. Fleeing farmers say some of their villages and farmlands have been turned to camps by suspected Fulani militias in Nasarawa State.

Survivors narrate experience

According to Ms. Mbaterem, she planned to return to Makurdi immediately after paying her workers that same day. On her way out of the farm, she saw two police officers inside a white Toyota Hilux van speeding towards the village and two men following them on a motorbike.

“Barely ten minutes later,” she told PREMIUM TIMES from her home in Makurdi where she awaits financial assistance to treat her wounds, “I saw them coming back while I was trekking to the road to board a taxi to Makurdi. There was a dead body inside the police van and 10 Fulani men following the van on motorcycles.”

She flagged down the police van to find out what had happened but the vehicle would not stop. Then she continued her journey.

Suddenly, she said, the 10 men who were trailing the police vehicle on motorcycles made a u-turn and came towards her.

“My heart jumped as I saw them approaching. It was at that time one of them told me that just as they are carrying the corpse of their brother; my corpse will soon be carried in the same way.”

The 10 cutlass-wielding men surrounded the lone woman while she begged for her life. One of the assailants advised her to look at the sun for the last time just as another brought down his cutlass on her head.

“I raised my hand over my head and the cutlass cut off one of my fingers and I shouted, ‘Jesus Christ come and help me.’ They all laughed at me,” she said, her voice shaking and her face contorting with pain as if she was being attacked again.

Having been taught a few self defence tactics by one of her friends, she used the little she remembered of the lesson to fence off the cutlass from landing on her head.

“I used my left hand to block the cutlass from cutting my head and that is why I have over 30 cuts on my left hand. If you see the wounds on my hands, you will no longer eat beef,” she said with tear- drenched eyes.

As she endured the stabs from her attackers, Ms. Mbaterem did not lose her survival instincts. She heard the voices of her late husband’s relatives who were working in a nearby farm and shouted for help.

On hearing her voice, four farmers appeared with equally sharp cutlasses and gave chase to the 10 marauders. Ms. Mbaterem said the herdsmen killed seven persons including two of her tenants and a member of the community’s vigilante.

Another survivor, 70-year-old Torna Usue said suspected Fulani youth waylaid and attempted to behead him near his compound in Usue Village, Sabon Gida ward, Gasso Local Government Area.

Mr. Usue is the traditional ruler of his community and a member of the Sabon Gida District Traditional Rulers Council. The septuagenarian’s father, Usue, from whose name the village derived its identity, was said to be the first person to settle and cultivate the vast fields in the area.

As a traditional ruler, Mr. Usue had settled many minor disputes between his subjects and cattle breeders. PREMIUM TIMES could not find any recorded case of hostility between the Fulani and the Tiv in Usue until May 26.

On that day, the monarch was walking home after visiting his relations in another part of the community. As he made his way towards his compound, he met some men, whom he said were herdsmen. Knowing him to be the leader of the community, the men greeted Mr. Usue with politeness.

According to the monarch, as he turned to continue his journey, the men pulled out cutlasses and started to attack him. He begged his assailants to no avail. Like Ms. Mbaterem, he used his hands to shield his neck and head from the sharp edges of the cutlasses.

Unable to bear the cuts any longer, the old man fell to the ground and passed out. His assailants thought he was dead and fled the location. When he woke up several hours later, he heard the voices of his relations who had launched a search for him. With the little energy left in him, he shouted out and the search party located and took him to the Federal Medical Centre, Jalingo where he was treated for multiple cuts.

“Some Fulanis arrived in our village over 20 years ago and had been living peacefully with us. But the boys who stabbed me are cattle rearers who came to our village last year,” he said.

Another survivor, Ayue Mnyim, also narrowly escaped death on March 15. Mr. Mnyim, the deputy headmaster of Government Primary School, Igwuratu, in Bali Local Government Area, was taking a stroll after school when a group of cutlass-wielding youth accosted him.
At a refugee camp in the headquarters of Bali Local Government Area, Mr. Mnyim narrated his experience.

“I was coming out of my house when I saw a group of Fulani men approaching me with a cutlass,” he said.

He added that he tried to run away but his attackers caught up with him and started stabbing him on the head with cutlasses.
“What saved me was a bystander who shouted that I am not a Tiv but a Mumuyi man. The man who saved my life was a Hausa man whom I have known for a long time. It was when they heard that, they left me bleeding and walked away,” he said.

Unlike the survivors, thousands of others died in similar circumstances.

Casualty on both sides

While the media and the entire world is focusing on atrocities committed by the extremist Boko Haram sect in parts of North-East Nigeria, insurgents have been killing and maiming hundreds in Bali, Donga, Gashaka, Gasso, Ibi, Takum and Wukari local government areas of Taraba State as well as in the neighboring state of Nasarawa and Benue.

With the lingering crisis, the rising and falling lush green hills; and the expansive arable lands of Southern Taraba, have been tainted with the blood of the innocent.

As the mercenaries invade community after community, killing people, burning houses and looting properties, the media have paid very little attention to the crimes.

Though people of Tiv stock appear to be mostly affected, witnesses, officials and the police have confirmed that several Fulanis have also been killed as well.

According to the Secretary of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Haruna Garus, over 1,200 Fulani men, women and children have been killed in Benue.

Mr. Garus told PREMIUM TIMES in Makurdi that the killings took place in Buruku, Gboko, Katsina Ala, Kwande, Agatu and Apa local government areas. He said apart from human lives lost to the crisis, over 860 cows have been killed in addition to thousands rustled by unidentified youth.

“Most of those who owned cows in Benue cannot boost of a single cattle today. But the total number of people killed during the crisis is 1,200 including women and children.”

He said the corpses of some Fulanis whose heads were cut off during attacks in the bushes were brought to the police headquarters in Makurdi.

“No arrests have been made,” he complained. “The only place you can still find Fulani people is in Ohimini while some crossed into Kogi State. But some Tiv youth still crossed into Bagana to attack our people.”

In Taraba, the Secretary of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, Shahabi Tukur, said 177 Fulanis have been killed since the beginning of hostilities in the southern part of the state.

“Our people were killed and their cattle stolen in Takum, Ibi, Wukari, Gasso, Bali and other areas in Southern Taraba,” he told PREMIUM TIMES in an interview in Jalingo. “I have the record of the names and the dates of the killings.”

The Chairman of the association, Mafindi Umar, also said Tiv fighters hide in the bushes and attack Fulanis and their cattle in many parts of Southern Taraba.

Mr. Umar recounted how cattle rustlers invaded Mai Gura village in June and stole several cows after killing 10 herdsmen. He maintained that Fulanis are peace-loving people but take exception to deliberate provocation.

While narrating the Tiv casualty, the Chairman, Tiv Cultural Association, Taraba State, James Nungwa, said over 5,000 Tivs have been killed since the hostilities began in the state.

Also, the Resident Pastor, Christian Reformed Church of Nigeria, CRCN, Wukari, Agabison Williams, said he is shocked at the killings of thousands of Tivs from the attacks. He said over 500,000 Tivs have also been displaced.

“If you had been around at the peak of the crisis and see the rate at which the Tiv people were running away, you would definitely pity them,” the cleric told PREMIUM TIMES. “They were running in the day and in the night. Some on bicycles, some on motorcycles and others on trailers and it was happening on a daily basis.”

A failed government

The killings in Taraba, Benue, and Nasarawa are symptomatic of the current insecurity across several parts of Nigeria. Many have blamed the federal government for failing to secure the lives and property of citizens.

Already, some Tiv indigenes have threatened to drag the Federal Government to the International Criminal Court over its complacency in the killings.

The Ter Nagi II and Chairman, Tyoshin Traditional Council, Gwer West Local Government Area of Benue State, Daniel Abomtse, said after series of petitions to President Goodluck Jonathan, Senate President David Mark, Minister of Defence, Aliyu Gusau, and the Inspector General of Police, the government had taken no action to halt the killings.

In his reaction to the killings, the Taraba State Acting Governor, Garba Umar, said the government was doing all in its power to stop the hostilities.

Mr. Umar, who spoke to PREMIUM TIMES through his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Aaron Artimas, said “the fight in Taraba State was not started by Tivs nor the Jukuns.”

“It was an incursion of Fulani herdsmen that has extended the boundary of insurgency campaigns from Plateau to Nasarawa and through Benue to Taraba. The position of the government is that this crisis was started by Fulani insurgents as was pointed out in all the agreements with Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association.”

The Chief Press Secretary to Mr. Umar, Kefas Sule, also explained that the government was doing all it could to resolve the crisis.
In Makurdi, the Benue Police spokesperson, Daniel Ezeani, said the various attacks were being investigated.

He said although the violence has ended, the police would bring all perpetrators to book.

“We are investigating the matter but you cannot expect me to give you details of what we are doing next week. You should give me at least one month to go through the files. You know the crisis happened long ago and peace has since returned to every part of the state,” he told PREMIUM TIMES.

In Nasarawa State, the police spokesperson, Numan Umar, said peace has returned to the troubled areas of the state. He commended the former Inspector General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Abubakar, for setting up the committee that brokered peace in the crisis-prone areas of the state.

“Peace has returned to the state after the former IG sent former DIG, Mike Zuokumor to meet with the leaders of both Tiv and Fulani communities in the state,” he told PREMIUM TIMES.

Asked whether those who were arrested for being involved in the killings have been prosecuted, Mr. Umar said the police was still investigating the matter.

Like the other two police spokespersons, Joseph Kwaji, the Taraba State police spokesperson, said both Tivs and Fulanis recorded casualties in the attacks.

Mr. Kwaji said police investigations showed that those causing the mayhem were not from Taraba State.
“We strongly believed that those causing the problem are not from Taraba State. We have found that some Fulanis from Benue and Plateau states crossed into Taraba and strike and went back,” he said.

Narrating a recent incident, he said, “A few days ago, there was an attack in which many people were killed and houses burnt in a village called Mala in Ibi Local Government Area. The officer in charge of the area told me that the insurgents came in from Tarok in Plateau State.”

Asked what the security agencies are doing to contend the killings, Mr. Kwaji said security operatives have been deployed to most of the flashpoints in the seven council areas affected by the conflict.

“In most of the places were round huts are burnt, you will see police and military checkpoints close by,” he said. “We have been able to check the crisis except in the interior where the herdsmen are engaged in guerrilla fight and where the roads are not motorable.”

    Islamism is a dangerous ideology. It asserts supremacy of Muslims – whether educated or not.
    It authorizes mass murder of all others. Islamism spreads round Nigeria, from Lagos to Borno.
    Islamism is on the move to Port-Harcourt, after an attempt of mass killing at Winners Chapel, Owerri.
    Democracy falls under Islamism because Islamism is apartheid – the ideology of religious supremacists.

    Islamism is banned in Saudi Arabia – the spiritual headquarters of global Islam, and also banned in Egypt –
    the intellectual capital of global Islam – because enlightened Muslims recognize Islamism as most dangerous.
    But, alas, Nigerian Muslims, far less educated and far less enlightened, hoist this same pernicious Islamism
    as the standard-bearers, with the suicidal Christian community in Nigeria doing nothing to stop it but looking on –
    as genocide enters all the Christian neighborhoods with devastating consequences and massive blood-letting.

    • Dele Hastrup (Lekki)

      @ Invitro,

      Yes O! Islamism is NOT compatible with democracy. He who says Islam says autocracy.
      Wherever Islamism is on the march, like this, stealing and mass killing will always follow.
      Nigeria is in deeper trouble than the people in the South realize in their blithe assumptions.
      The real Islamist Jihad is scheduled to take place in Lagos, Ibadan, Owerri and Port-Harcourt.

      • Otile

        Who helped the jhadists to acquire power and impunity to kill children? Guess who? Karma must run its course. All child-killers must taste mass killing in their land in due course. This is but the beginning. Allah Wubade.

    • ans

      Islamaphobia. Just wake up from sleep as Islam is God’s own religion and there is nothing you can do about it.

      • Otile

        Good people are doing something about Islam, e.g. Angola rightly branded it a cult of hate breeders and banned it in their soil. Israel has cornered islamic virus in the bangren of Palestine. China is taking effective measures against it.

    Nigeria, under Dumbo, is a crime scene (cr. @Dare)

      Karma is alive, bro. The blood of 2 million children is haunting the communities of evil doers.

  • True Nigerian

    Well, most of Nigeria’s killing fields are unreported anyway. The truth is that this country is an inferno, literally. But people just don’t care so much about it simply because they are yet to be burnt. And that is the worst danger – that Nigerians have become so selfish and so loveless that any problem that benefits them is not considered a problem. When you see what your problem is and the urgency it requires, you can take immediate action. But when your lethal problem takes a seat and you simply get on with your life as if things are normal, you are in for a sudden death. That’s what may befall Nigeria. People who are making a lot of money are assessing the country based on their own pockets which cannot buy stability for them if this country goes into the next phase of its current crisis. They don’t see the truth that they could wake up as refugees in a UN makeshift facility somewhere in Ghana, Cameroon, Chad, Niger or find themselves on a perilious boat journey to Libya, Italy, Spain, etc. And as I often say, I don’t know any part of the world right now where it is popular to be a Nigerian (even when you are a law abiding honest professional), let alone when we start trying to flood another country in tens of thousands as refugees and illegal migrants.

    Nigeria is in intensive care unit – but the worst trouble is, in this case, there is not even a doctor on call- the one pretending to be a doctor on call is a quack, unqualified, incompetent fellow, whom instead of solving the problem, is actually doing his best to exploit the problem for his own parochial benefit at all cost, and witha do or die might. A patient (in this case Nigeria) left in the hands of such a Physician is on the way to a certain death! I’ll say it again, 2015, will be our last chance to save this country and save ourselves. Obasanjo really cursed this country in 2007! May he never have peace in his old age!

    • Kadeer

      God bless, you are indeed a true Nigerian with this profound comment. Live long, and stay true.

  • Proudly NigerDelta

    “…On hearing her voice, four farmers appeared with equally sharp cutlasses and gave chase to the 10 marauders..”
    The above and the few lines before it, represent indelibly striking points in the whole story…the efficacy of self & communal defense systems. The woman had bravely defended herself again 10 armed idiots with her bare hands and never gave up until her own folks came out to fight and chase the cowards.

    When we ask for State police, Navy & Army fully controlled and supervised by each of our so called 36 states and from their own resources, the regions which have skeletons to hide kick against it. Besides, every Nigerian adult should be permitted to carry firearm so long as it is registered and he/she is mentally fit. If it were so, no band of cowardly idiots will attack a poor woman…Even boko haram will think twice before storming a male dormitory bcos they know there will be resistance. We need more sane people to carry guns…at the moment, more of the insane carry most of the firearms.

    The problems of continent Nigeria are legion. We are sure not one country. Nigeria is long over due for 7 countries. May God bless Gideon Orkar & Co for their foresight. But the group of ‘civilized’ but useless & insensitive Governors who sleep on N50m beds will not agree with me. Same with those who hop from here to there with Bombardier Jets or those who have made the Kano – Dubai & Abuja – Dubai a most lucrative Dollar ferrying routes for their courier children and relatives. Sad indeed.

    The problem with Nigeria is STRUCTURAL DEFECT. Pure & Simple. To run a full blown continent with national policies can only by suicidal. Until the people (Not selected few) decide on whether they want one Nigeria via referendum or other means, Nigeria’s circle of violence and absurdities will remain unabated…and of course people like Dadivo Markaroni as a citizen of Belize where a chunk of his investments lie, will care less. Nonsense!

  • growthengine

    The land is big enough to share, why the killings

  • Maku

    Tiv people should stop killing the fulanis and stealing their cows and there shall be peace. Same problem the beroms in plateau have. They kill the fulanis, steal their cows and don’t expect them to retaliate.

    • growthengine

      We only hear of herdsmen attacks, just like the BH attacks. I think its just an excuse to gain more territory and reduce the voting power of the Tivs, Beroms and Southern Kaduna people. After all human life should have more value than a cow’s. How do they steal cows by the way? Who steals cows?

  • Alkali

    “Recently, the Sultan of Sokoto made a highly inflammatory comment that the Fulanis have
    been ‘grazing on their traditional grazing land’ in Tiv land. But the Tiv
    people do not share any contiguous borders with the Fulanis. When and how did
    the Tiv land become a ‘traditional grazing land’ for the Fulani nomadic cattle
    breeders?”

    “Should un-restrained provocation trigger another civil war, the Tiv people will
    definitely NOT be on the side they were on then”

    “The Tiv people are geographically and culturally NOT Northerners any more than the
    Hausa man is a South-Eastern or Middle Belter. And the Tivs are not tools in
    the hands of any ethnic group in Nigeria. If they were so in the days of our
    fathers, they are certainly not in our days”.

  • Onyeze

    Here’s the truth: Poverty breeds all these issues. Poor and neglected people have similar traits all over the world. When people are abused and treated like animals, they tend to behave like animals. Same way, when people are appreciated, loved, treated humanely, encouraged, they tend to perform well in life. If you don’t believe me, take two dogs of same breed, one to a loving home where she is cared for and loved and another to a home where the dog is abused. The later will turn out very aggressive.
    The politicians and the successive governments have dehumanized the people they’re supposed to take care of. The end result is that the people turn against each other. They turn the anger to one another. Even this applies to Boko Haram. If these young men were given proper education and job opportunity to make a living, do you think they will be collecting =N=500 to kill another human being instead, even if they share different ethnic origin?
    Here’s the answer: When a political officer holder fails to perform, don’t reward him/her by electing him/her to same or another position. Kick them out!. Don’t vote for somebody just because he or she shares same town/state with you. It will do you no good. His religion is also completely irrelevant. Vote for people that can change your life. Don’t look at party affilitions, look for his or her track record. ‘nouf said!

        Nigerians are confused and almost bamboozled by what is happening. Boko Haram has stated that they want Nigeria to become a Caliphate. The so-called herdsmen are the disguised harbingers of their arrival. The whole North East and North Central are gradually being conquered by Boko Haram, while the gullible public is reading different fake scripts written and fed by the Fulani puppeteers.

        Folks, Nigeria is in for a long slug. The people that will survive this onslaught are the people that clearly see this for what it truly is and quietly prepare their people. This shit is not far from your hometown. It is coming.
        History always repeats itself. The Fulani never give up any place they visit, much more settle. Look at Ilorin. They get a grazing field for free, it becomes their hometown and they put an Emir there. The rest is history.

  • Mpitikwelu_na_Ugwu_Awusa

    The unsafest place to live in Nigeria is the North central villages. The Fulani marauders armed with dangerous weapons can strike innocent villagers, at will and at any time of the day. I can only ask the middle belt to defend themselves. This is a wicked country ever since the needless massacre of two million Igbos. No one will defend the Gbagyis, Tivis, Kafes, Jukun, Chambas etc, except they arm themselves. The only thing Hausa Fulani understand is violence. in their polluted minds, the middle beltans are Kafirs or sub-humans.

  • omo56

    How can one ethnic group becomes a law unto themselves? Why are the two major parties silent on the havoc the Fulani herdsmen are waging? Are the Fulani so strong that they have members of both PDP and the other party their back pockets?

    • Bosah

      Nigeria belongs to the Fulani. Uthman Danfodio conquered the place for them. They come from all over North Africa and will extend his rule to the Atlantic. That is the script. They will do it in the name of Islam. They have the infrastructure to do it. They have Emirs for every province in Nigeria. Very soon they will dust off their blueprint. All Chiefs, Obas, Amanyanbos and Igwes will be abolished or reduced to second class rulers or mere titular heads.

      The Shehu of Bornu is almost insignificant. He is merely a figure head. Gentlemen, let us wave the white flag. These things are gradually happening and your children and grand children may have to leave under oppression forever or go on exile. It is what it is. Freedom is not free. What are you gong to do about it?
