The Fulani Herdsmen and their military extension (Fulani terrorists) in Nigeria are fully backed by the Government of President Muhammadu Buhari. The Fulani herdsmen is a Terror Group that has claimed the lives of more than 5000 Christians living in Nigeria. The Terror Group is now the world’s fourth most deadly terror group, according to the Global Terror Watch Index (GTWI). Muhammadu Buhari has intentionally showed “indisposed and helplessness” to put end to the terror caused by these Fulani herdsmen. As a matter of fact, the Fulani Terror Group is now a militia arm of the Buhari administration.

On the 13th of October 2000, General Muhammadu Buhari was leading the Arewa team to the Late governor Lam Onaolapo office to confront the state over alleged killings of Fulani cattle rearers in Saki, Oke Ogun Area of the state. Buhari did actually telephone the governor that he was leading a team to his office. Late Alhaji Lam Onaolapo Adesina was the Oyo State governor from May 29, 1999 to May 29, 2003. General Buhari informed the Late governor Lam Onaolapo of his visit. 30min later, the entire secretariat was already filled with truck loads of Buhari’s brothers from the North.

This created some tension at the governors villa. At about 2 p.m. Buhari arrived in a long convoy at the governor’s office in company of the former governor of Lagos State, General Buba Marwa, Alhaji Aliko Muhammed, Alhaji Abdulrazak and Alhaji Hassan. They were all vexed up. The atmosphere at the governor’s office was filled with tension. Shortly afterwards, the state Director of State Security Service (SSS) and Commissioner of Police arrived but the meeting was called to order after governor Lam walked into the Executive Chambers. After proper Introductions, Buhari spoke on their mission to the governor’s office. Speaking aggressively and really tensed up, the general Buhari accused governor Lam and the government of Oyo State of complicity in the killing of over 68 Fulani people in Oke Ogun area and perversion of justice.

His words: “Your Excellency, our visit here is to discuss with you and your government our displeasure about the incident of clashes between two peoples… the Fulani cattle rearers and merchants are today being harassed , attacked and killed like in Saki. In the month of May, 2000, 68 bodies of Fulani cattle rearers were recovered and buried under the supervision and protection from a team of Mobile Police from Oyo State Command. “ That some arrests were made by Oyo State Police Command in the massacre with their immediate release without court trial. This was said to have been ordered by Oyo State authorities and they were so released to their amazement. The release of the arrested suspects gave the clear impression that the authorities are backing and protecting them to continue the unjust and illegal killings of Fulani cattle rearers”

General buhari and his entourage demanded immediate stoppage of the killings, justice and compensation to the Fulani's. Lam identified all the points raised by Buhari and fired back at him. Lam said: “Before I thank you for this visit, you have come to tell me something. I also want to tell you something and that something is to make an appeal. General Buhari has been a former Head of State, Brigadier Marwa has governed Lagos for some time and with credibility… so you are national leaders of this country. Even though, by accident of birth, you  are from the North, you can be born anywhere; may be next time when I am coming to the world, I will be born in the North or the South-South.

“My appeal will be that effort must be made to unite this country and that will be ïn the best interest of all Nigerians. I am appealing to the Arewa Consultative Forum, under which auspices our distinguished Nigerians are here; in recent times, they have been sending wrong signals to a number of us who believe in the unity and peace of Nigeria; you have been too critical of the efforts of the Federal Government. I am saying this because Nigeria, at this point, cannot afford to break and the words you northern leaders utter are very weighty, at the South here, we normally analyze them critically”. On all the allegations, he said: “From what they have written in the petition, this government is completely blameless because we don’t interfere either with the judiciary or with the police functions. I always preach peaceful co-existence in Oyo State and Nigeria as a whole. We are all Nigerians and that is what we have been

preaching all along and we shall continue to be Nigerians, no matter the present or immediate problems which will be solved by the grace of Allah.

“I want to say also that we really have to appeal to our people, the itinerant Bororo people that they should observe less aggression. It is not good, it is not right just coming from somewhere then you just pass through farm lands cultivated may be with the person’s life savings and then over night everything is gone. That is not right, even Allah does not approve of that".

We even wonder when they talk about this people carrying dangerous weapons; I say do they really believe in Allah? When you just take life like that and go away! Are we not forbidden not to take human life? So I think General Buhari, General Marwa, you have to be educating them… It is my pleasure to inform you that at the Presidential Lodge, we have made some arrangements for refreshments so that before you go we can refresh together”.

Buhari and his team did stormed out furiously and didn't wait for any refreshments
