Fulani Herders Another Terrorist Group In Nigeria?

In many reports, residents have accused government security forces of helping herders carry out attacks.


In addition to the killings perpetrated by Boko Haram terrorists, violence and killings have also intensified in the many parts of Nigeria following the attacks by Fulani herders. Farm produce are destroyed, villages are looted and razed, and people are killed by the herders.

The government has described it as a clash between herders and farmers, but the affected communities have said “it is not true”.

In many reports, residents have accused government security forces of helping herders carry out attacks.

The governor of Delta State in the southern part of the country, Ifeanyi Okowa, had also accused the security agents of aiding the herders to attack the communities of his state. The Nigerian federal government and government forces have yet to deny it or make tangible comments on it.

“We’ve turned security issues into matters that we politic about, not knowing that none of us is safe as long as these things are not tackled headlong. There are too many questions to be asked. It looks like this is now becoming a clever ploy to manipulate the polity in a particular way; that’s what it seems to people. We have put cats in charge of our meat and we are having ourselves to blame,” The Senior Pastor of The Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare said in an interview in early 2018.
