The violent and barbaric activities perpetrated by the terrorists called Fulani-Herdsmen is seriously causing a revolt within and outside Nigeria. The Fulani Herdsmen has never been this active. Over 1,500 Biafrans has been slaughtered by the Fulani Herdsmen in less than 9month of Buhari's Administration. Just recently About 60 Biafrans have so far been reportedly killed by some Fulani herdsmen at Nimbo in Uzo- Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State. About seven villages in Nimbo (Nimbo Ngwoko, Ugwuijoro, Ekwuru, Ebor, Enugu Nimbo, Umuome and Ugwuachara) were among the areas attacked. Over 500 heavily-armed Fulani herdsmen sneaked into these communities to launch attacks on unarmed civilians, killing and slaughtering everyone they came across. Both women and children were butchered.
The provoking aspects of all this event is that president Buhari continue to do nothing about these massacres. In fact 19 Northern Governors, including Benue and Taraba States whose states been bewitched by Fulani herdsmen, have issued a strongly worded statement warning Nigerians to desist from tagging Fulani Herdsmen as terrorists. Nigerians in Diaspora plan to stage protests this week in major world capitals in response to the killing of Biafran and destruction by the dangerous terrorists called Fulani-herdsmen. Nigerians in Diaspora started a protest in London, Tagged the "London Protest Against Fulani Herdsmen", it has already commenced in London, the United Kingdom this week with similar protests planned simultaneously in the United States, Canada and across cities in Europe.
