Miyetti Allah defends Fulani herders in the Southwest
Speaking about the impending killer herdsmen crisis and attacks in the southwest, the coordinator claimed that it is the bad people among the tribe that are perpetrating ills in other regions.
His words: “Just as you have in any society where there are good and bad people.”
He also claimed that the killer herdsmen are not the only criminals in the the country.
“It is not only Fulanis that commit crimes in the country, but it was sad that everything happening now is heaped on Fulani herdsmen,” Mohammed maintained.
He vowed that the association would bring out the bad eggs.
The coordinator continued, “We have concluded at our meeting today that anybody who comes to Kwara State claiming to be Fulani herder under questionable circumstances, will be reported to the security agencies for necessary action.
“Our vigilantes will monitor the bush and the forests where there are no security agencies and report suspected cattle rustlers who disguise as cattle herders to perpetrate crimes.”
