Terrorism: Yorubas Should Prioritize Confronting Fulani Herdsmen In Their Ancestral Land

Terrorism: Yorubas Should Prioritize Confronting Fulani Herdsmen In Their Ancestral Land



While the various State Governors and their respective Houses of Assembly members in the South, are silently fidgeting in defence of their citizens' right to freely live in their own land, the Northern leaders are strongly defending their Fulani herdsmen (mercenaries). This defence stems from their usage of automatic AK47 rifles in their mapped out agenda of total conquest, as earlier declared by one of their leaders who arrogantly stated that their conquered part of Benue land presently belongs to them. Their foregoing effort to overrun Yorubaland is their priority and every amount of force employed against the indigenous land owners with covert federal government backing, is geared towards actualizing that dream.


One salient question the Nigerian media cum activitists have hitherto failed to ask is: "Who really is bankrolling the activities of these terrorists initially claimed to be foreigners, that are hell bent on gruesomely killing the indigenous citizens? The South-West is presently turned into a battlefield for land grabbing between the rightful Yoruba owners and the invading Fulani mercenaries, who are hiding behind the cloak of cattle herders. Emboldened by the Buhari led Nigerian government, through it's steadily vigorous and callous defence of the cause of dipping the Quaran into the Atlantic Ocean, the world and concerned emissaries have blatantly kept a blind eye to this malady.


Since the marauding Fulani killer herdsmen who are brazenly brandishing their sophisticated weapons unchallenged, are declared mere criminals by the Nigerian Information Minister, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, and for which reason they must remain unproscribed, they then can with ease, attack the operatives of Amotekun, killing some of them even in their own land. Would the Yorubas consider throwing in the towel even at the face of this provocation?  Would they really place demand for justice in stoutly activating their self-defence mechanism? Would they go on their knees pleading for their lives to be spared even at the altar of brazen assault of conquest?


While there yet remains a vigorous campaign in defence of firearms being arrogantly brandished by the Fulani herdsmen and their right to kill at will with alacrity with the full backing of Northern leaders, they must know also that for every action executed, there comes equally, an accompaniment of relative reaction. If therefore these killers are institutionally backed to pick up arms, then the operatives of Amotekun in the South-West and Eastern Security Network in Biafraland, most definitely, have to live up to expectations. 


No one has the monopoly of violence!
