The Divisional Police Officer, DPO, in charge of Vunokilang Police Station in Girei Local Government Area of Adamawa State was among the 30 people killed in an attack by suspected Fulani herdsmen on Sunday morning .

Reports from the area revealed that the suspected herdsmen raided four villages: Demsare, Wunamokoh, Dikajam and Taboungo in what is believed to be a vengeance mission over an existing feud with farmers in the area.

Several houses and other property in the villages were also burnt in the attack.

The DPO, Okozie Okereofor, a Chief Superintendent of Police, who was deployed to the state about two months ago, was said to have been ambushed when he was leading police officers to the disputed area. He was killed in the eventual shootout with his assailants.

The corpse of the slain police officer and the others killed is currently deposited at the morgue of the Federal Medical Centre, Yola.

The Police in Adamawa have confirmed the killing of Mr. Okereofor.

“The DPO and his team were attacked while on official duty in the affected villages where he was killed by suspected Fulani herdsmen,” the spokesperson of the Adamawa State Police Command, Othman Abubakar, said.

“Report at my disposal indicated that the attackers looted foodstuff and livestock of the villagers before setting the villages ablaze.

“The suspected Fulani herdsmen raided four villages in Girei local Government area on Sunday morning around 5:30 a.m. killing scores including the late DPO.”

When a PREMIUM TIMES reporter and other journalists visited the Federal Medical Centre on Sunday, some of the survivors of the attack were seen receiving treatment.

However, a nurse on duty said the management of the hospital issued a directive that no journalist should be allowed into the wards.

Commenting on the attack, the Acting Brigade Commander of the 23 Armored Bridgade, Yola, Aba Poopola, confirmed that the Fulani herdsmen had problems with the affected areas.

He said “everything is under control” as he has deployed his officers to the area to maintain law and order.

The attack is different from the Boko Haram terrorist attacks in Adamawa and other north-eastern states that have caused the death of about 25,000 people since it began in 2010.

  • RestructureNigeria



    As long the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. Although there WILL be Islamic attacks..

    United States — Muslim 0.6%

    Australia — Muslim 1.5%

    Canada — Muslim 1.9%

    China — Muslim 1.8%

    Italy — Muslim 1.5%

    Norway — Muslim 1.8%

    At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. There will be MORE attacks at this level

    This is happening in:

    Denmark — Muslim 2%

    Germany — Muslim 3.7%

    United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%

    Spain — Muslim 4%

    Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

    From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply.
    There will now be a level of fear from the natural population towards muslims. This is occurring in:

    France — Muslim 8%

    Philippines — 5%

    Sweden — Muslim 5%

    Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%

    The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%

    Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

    At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire
    world. When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris , we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections, in: Almost DAILY attacks in this range

    Guyana — Muslim 10%

    India — Muslim 13.4%

    Israel — Muslim 16%

    Kenya — Muslim 10%

    Russia — Muslim 15%

    After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:

    Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

    At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:

    Bosnia — Muslim 40%

    NIGERIA– Muslim 42.8%

    Chad — Muslim 53.1%

    Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

    From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and ***ya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in:

    Albania — Muslim 70%

    Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%

    Qatar — Muslim 77.5%

    Sudan — Muslim 70%

    After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in
    some ways is on-going in:

    Bangladesh — Muslim 83%

    Egypt — Muslim 90%

    Gaza — Muslim 98.7%

    Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%

    Iran — Muslim 98%

    Iraq — Muslim 97%

    Jordan — Muslim 92%

    Morocco — Muslim 98.7%

    Pakistan — Muslim 97%

    Palestine — Muslim 99%

    Syria — Muslim 90%

    Tajikistan — Muslim 90%

    Turkey — Muslim 99.8%

    United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

    100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasas are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such
    as in:

    Afghanistan — Muslim 100%

    Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%

    Somalia — Muslim 100%

    Yemen — Muslim 100%

    Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate
    and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons. Then you have BOKO HARAM, ISIS..Islam with a hall pass!!!

    Now Buhari should DEPLOY full military battalion to arrest or kill this Fulani militants like he has just recently done in Niger Delta.

    • Otile

      That is not going to happen, neither are you going to hear his yoruba slaves incite their master to wipe out the murderous herdsmen. This is the kind of injustice they want us to endure in corrupt one Nigeria. Nonsense

  • Pointblank007

    Let truth be told……

    The Fulani herdsmen are a clear and present danger to Nigeria as one indivisible country.

    Fulani herdsmen as a group are the enemies of state in Nigeria today, as murderous outlaws.

    Few days ago, they killed the King of Ubulu-Uku in Aniocha local government of Delta state.

    They raped the female residents of Nsukka in Enugu state in the last quarter of the year 2015.

    Unless the Fulani are seen for whom they are – as murderous rogues, thieves and rapists motivated

    solely by the spirit of covetousness of other people’s property, Nigeria will soon descend into bloodiness.

  • Peace Movement


    O’ yes, you are on point. Buhari can choose to hide his head in the sand on this one,
    he’ll be irrelevant on the solution on the right of all communities in Nigeria to declare
    the Fulani people as pests and rapscallions and get rid of them once and for all now!
    No constitutional amendment can resolve an invasion by illiterate Fulani cave men who
    have no value for human lives, just as it is impossible to dialogue with Boko Haram.

    All Nigeria’s ethnic groups
    must take a common stance against these useless Fulani urchins who have
    no morals or thinking ability anyone can appeal to for détente. There’s nothing
    wrong with killing murderous invaders of one’s private homesteads. The Fulani
    have now put themselves out as legitimate targets to be shot dead on sight.
    They are of no use to Nigerian society. They are too barbaric to be further
    tolerated. Fulani are thieves, murderers and rapists. Enough is enough!!!!

  • Curseless

    It is high time that these Fulani herdsmen are treated as terrorists and nothing short of that will be sufficient.

  • Anonymous

    Farmers need to have access to assault rifles so it will be a fair fight. People need to stand up and fight because the government don’t give a damn.

  • Otile

    If anyone east of the Niger attacked and killed police officers Duncee’s response would be different. It would be retributive, swift and brutal. Did Obasanjo not destroy Odi for the same action the Fulani herdsmen carried out on these police officers? Soon sycophants and cowardly praise singers will come out to defend their Fulani masters. Nonsense.

        Ha ha…

      • Shugaba Nkasa

        Thanks for the confirmation.

        FYI, the north will never ever seek sympathy from the east or anywhere else! Far from what you may think, The North does not need your help to handle her business.

        The Maitatsine thing happened, the North took it without seeking your sympathy.
        Boko Haram has been killing northerners all thru GEJ’s years in office without as much as a fart from Jonathan……..the north did not come to cry at your door.

        So no one is asking for your sympathy. We are simply stating the obvious. You are all bigots and should be ashamed of yourselves!

        • kenn

          You are much of a bigot than I am because when boko haram started with bombing of churches and killing of Christians not a single northern elder came out to condemn the killings until boko haram turned on fellow muslims and then it became an issue of GEJ is doing nothing. All of you are hypocrites….and all those who live by the sword shall die by the sword.

          If you have common sense the question you should be asking is why is the north a voilent place? It has been a place of religious crisis upon religious crisis. Are you people the only ones that worship God ?

    • Unekwesylvester

      Yes u are very much right at that. The life of 1 Igbo man worth more than the lives of 1 million Hausa men.Because u value the life of a cattle more than that of human. Where in Nigeria other than the north human being born of a woman created by God will plant bomb in his body and embark on a journey he or she new very well is not going to return alife just to take another life

  • Fati Kalia

    It is so obvious that this is Boko Haram. Premium times is sure covering this up for the minister of information as he has been going round appealing to media houses to curtail reports on boko haram. Thats why they budgeted so much to the information ministry to use the media to confuse us. SMH

        My brother,

        I beg O. I am not a fascist. But I agree with you. There are many fascists in Nigerian media today.
        If not, for 20 years or more, these Fulani mad men have been killing, and media does not scream.
        Look at the way the same media screamed at Stella Oduah over 300 million Naira inflated contract.
        Did you see them scream the same way over the 800 billion Naira proved missing under FASHOLA?

          Thank you. It is the individual journalists who sell their souls for money you must call out. Those useless Journalist-pretenders who violate public trust for the sake of money. They prostrate at night for Bola Tinubu and they pretend to be radical in the afternoon. Next to those stealing in public office those useless journalists, more than any other group, destroyed Nigeria with hypocrisy and deceit.

          I am glad that Nigerians can see through their tricks. A day of reckoning is coming. They will be cleared out of society like rubbish. In 1976, one Lagos journalist was tied to the stakes at Bar Beach and faced firing squad for betraying his country. Not less than 50 journalists will need to be tied to the stakes this time around.

    Fascism comes to NIGERIA through the MEDIA!

    With the APC-infested press flaying Nigeria there’s no longer a honest discussion in the country.
    The media apparatchiks in this corrupt journalism are like herdsmen who see Nigerians as cattle.
    They believe they have the editorial power to tell the people what to think; when, and how to think.
    It is now taboo to assess President Buhari, unless the assessor writes in to give 100% pass mark.
    This is the recipe for the stagnation and destruction of society by invidious press self-censorship.

    I know why i say this important prayer. May God Almighty, the maker of heavens and earth
    save Nigerians first from the media-enablers of the All Progressives Congress (APC) party
    who, for a fee paid under the table, are so determined to enforce ignorance on the people.
    Premium Times is obviously exempt from that sloven category of crassly biddable press.
    No country’s media did such treason (as Nigerian journalists are doing) without imploding.
    A society herded by the media to think only one way will die and will not be revived again.
    This ‘SAI BABA JOURNALISM’ paid for by APC party will push Nigeria into ignorant mess.

  • Imea

    The same blood runs in the veins of Fulani people, wicked, hard, unforgiving creatures – can’t call them humans. There is no point arming the farmers, because the evil people wait until villagers go to bed and then invade the area and set their houses on fire killing whole families. Their governors spent time and money in endless meetings to find solution for cattle rustling but never say a word when incidents like this happens. Corruption is not only when money is mis-appropriated, it is also turning a blind eye to what you know is evil. Why does the president not take all these killings serious and include it in his fight against corruption

    • Mohammed

      Mr Imea
      I understand your frustration, believe me I am frustrated too. But you need to understand that president Buhari has inherited a big mess from the past administration. Goodluck Jonathan destroyed Nigeria. It will take not less than 20 years to stay on course of Buhari’s administration to stabilize Nigeria. At my age, I may not witness that stable and prosperous Nigeria, but I hope you will.

      • PlusOne

        It’s surprising how you insinuate that GEJ destroyed the country – what a mess coming from you!

        Have you forgotten how GMB/PMB toppled a democratically elected government or how IBB & OBJ alone looted Nigeria wealth, creating a massive dent to whatever refinement that GEJ tried to put right? How come you guys only remember the recent and completely ignore errors that has and is leading to more errors?

        Go and drink gari and sleep a bit, when you wake up ask the question or make similar comment again.

      • ayobamiba

        Mohammed you are a liar,in what specific way did Jonathan destroy Nigeria ,this is the lies been told you hollow minded almajiri imbeciles by your immoral leaders while they destroy your future .is it Jonathan that created misery, poverty,sickness and irresponsibilites of bearing children and throwing them on the streets and denying them education and care so that they shall become killers and blood suckers.Jonathan is best President Nigeria ever had,not minding the malicious lies,blackmails and falsehoods been peddled by APC government to tarnish his image and hide his good works from Nigerians.Jonathan was holistic and very very sincere in his administration of Nigeria ,his sins was that he opened government up to include all Nigerians and did not discriminate against Nigerians based on tribe,religion and ethnicity and this was where he offended the sensibilities of the ‘mohamedians’who preferred total domination and control. Mohammed please point to any sector of Nigeria where Jonathan destroyed instead of transformed. Buhari has been here for 8months now and everything about Nigeria is nosediving instead of improving. Please engage me on a debate on this issue let’s dig deep a little.

      • Unekwesylvester

        U are very wicked and corrupt to say that Jonathan destroyed Nigeria. U are worst than boko haram and Fulani herdsman put together. Abacha, Babangida,Abudasalam Abubakar are all saint. Buhari who is supposed to die in prison for toppling democratically elected government of Shagari in 1985. Because he Shagari constituted panel of inquiry to investigate the $2.8bn NNPC money missing that was traced to his London acc. He is now saint and ur messiah. Hypocrite, are u saying that the Fulani herdsman has no leaders, in which DSS prison are they chained as we are talking now. How many persons has IPod/massob killed to warrant incarceration of their leader without bail. The biggest atrocity Britain did to this country is to amalgamate north to the southern region of this country. How can u tame human beings with wild animals

  • Intrepid

    All these anti corruption athem going on, is just like scratching Nigeria’s problem on the surface. Nigeria needs restructuring, so that every section will find their level, according to their own God endowed ablities. See how uncouth babarians are snuffing out the lives of bread winners of other citizens. If they are not killing, they are kidnapping. There is no difference between these fulani herdsmen and boko haram. Where boko haram have been technically defeated, according to liar mohammed, they diguise as fulani herdsmen to carry on with their nefarious crimes, against people they see as not their own.

    • Mohammed

      I blame our leaders. They live good life, eat good good foods, have the best police protection for themselves and their families. But unfortunately, the ordinary citizens who put them in the position they occupy, are the ones taking the brunt of inhumanity of the terrorist and barbarians. If the authorities cannot protect ordinary citizens, the law abiding citizens should therefore be allowed to carry gun for self defense. Because that is the only language the terrorist and barbarians may eventually understand.

        I am sure president Buhari is not silent or oblivious to this tragedy. Buhari is confronting multiple problems head on.
        Imagine dealing with Boko Haram, Military confrontation with Shiite Muslims in the north.
        In the Southeast, Biafra agitators.
        In the Southdouth, Niger delta militants, fighting corruption, insecurity and our economy in tatters, just to mention a few. To be an honest president in a complex and diverse country like Nigeria is not an easy job. Buhari does his job to the best of his ability.

        • ayobamiba

          Mohammed what has undermined our nation and left this nation completely down had been the hypocrisy, lying tendencies, deception and hate bigotry of people like you who are afraid of truth,justice and equity because they can’t survive in a just and equitable society. Buhari told Nigerians that as a tested general,he shall lead the war against terrorism from the front and 8months down his promised eldolado,Nigerians are been slaughtered by bands of terrorists and bloodsuckers ,burning down their communities ,raping, kidnapping and fermenting all kinds of atrocities while our President that promised to lead from the front lines is now leading from foreign nations. is d responsibilities of buhari to use his office to provide security for citizens of Nigeria. Since may 29 when buhari took over till date,within a period of 8 months ,more Nigerians have lost their lives to insecurity than at any other time in the history of Nigeria. Buhari have been unable to provide leadership that is much needed at this auspicious time in the history of our nation ,buhari had woefully failed to unite Nigerians to face the challenge of nation building at this very critical period. Buhari had failed to galvanize a sincere response to the challenges facing Nigeria .all that nigerians have seen from buhari so far is Buck passing, blame games,propaganda, media trial of his political opponents, fake promises and secrecy in government activities. If Nigeria can go down in this manner within 8 months, may God save this nation in the remaining 3.4 months remaining of this self inflicted national calamity.

      Get this into your brain scull, that the chief sponsor of bokoharam is buhari, and buhari is the grand patron of fulani herdsmen, these are facts, both are the same jihadist movement, buhari is the one providing them with logistics, so don’t expect him to talk . because he have the same ideology with them, but God will punish very soon.

    Boko Haram and Fulani’s herdsmen are one and same.
    I made the same point years ago while Jonathan was president. Unfortunately the president is unwilling to deal with them now or then.
    The sad event should have commanded the same reaction by Nigeria military as the bombing of pipe line in Niger Delta,
    The Nigeria military said everything has returned to normal. No effort to bring the killers to justice.
    Normals is Fulani’s herdsmen killing and raping with impunity. The Boko Haram are indirectly ruling the country,

    Major General Tukur Buratai was appointed director of procurement DHQ in
    2012, a position he held until May 2015 that he was appointed force
    commander of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MJTNF), an appointment he
    held till he became chief of army staff,” Steven Chilaka, national
    secretary of the movement, said in a statement issued on Sunday.

    “As director of public procurement at the DHQ, all procurements by the
    military between 2012 and May 2015 passed through his office. Our question
    is; how can you probe procurement of arms within this period without the
    involvement of Major General Buratai, the man who was the director of

    “Curiously too, only retired and serving officers of the Nigerian Air
    Force were said to have been indicted.

    “Was the army being excluded from this probe to save Major General
    Buratai? Or Could procurements have been made without his involvement
    during the period that he was Director of Procurement?

    “Definitely, it won’t be funny if President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight
    against corruption is also selective against the military as it already
    appears to be against the political class and the president must look into
    this obvious case of selective probe as a matter of urgency.”
