Proxy War Involving Fulani Herdsmen

Spread the love

There is proxy war going on in Nigeria. Fulani Herdsmen are being used, to fight and kill non-Muslims in Middle Belt region, and Southern part of the country, in the guise of protecting their cattle. United Nations has a tradition of keeping quiet, over atrocities being committed in Nigeria. We call on world powers, especially United States, to launch more military strikes on rapist terrorist gangs, who hide under religion to perpetrate heinous crimes.

Sponsored Menace Of Fulani Nomads.
The menace of sponsored Fulani terrorist herdsmen, took a new a dimension in 2015; at the inception of the current Fulani-controlled Nigerian Government.

Their brutality, murders, rape, destruction of farmland, and property of defenseless citizens, are mostly in Middle Belt and Southern part of Nigeria- none Muslim territories. The onslaught is unprecedented in the history of the country. It has superseded the nefarious activities of their twin accomplice in crime; Boko Haram insurgents, who operate mostly in far Northern part of the country.

Their impunity and ruthlessness, are evident to all. They have even gotten to the extent of killing Policemen, and other security agents. No single one of them has ever been arrested, prosecuted, and brought to book. Nigerian President Buhari, and others in charge of practically all security apparatus, are their kinsmen- Fulanis.

The question many people ask is, why should the President and his Fulani dominated Government, condone their killing spree, and destructive tendencies; and even give tacit support to them. Who supplies Ak-47 rifles to those stark illiterates, to mow down people in their farms and homes? You need to see how these animals in human shapes, cut human beings to pieces, with machetes. That animalistic instinct in them, has to be tamed through proper education. Why is it that none of these murderous Fulanis has been apprehended for years now?

When the Nigerian President was on medical vacation, for months in the year 2017, the country was relatively very calm. The atrocities of Fulani herdsmen were nibbed in the bud, by the Acting President Osinbajo. Their activities were scarcely reported on the news media. They went into oblivion. It appeared they had gone into hiding. As soon as their kinsman came back from medical treatment, they resumed hostilities and rampage across Nigeria.

They are now, also destroying commercial and mechanized vast farmlands, belonging to individuals from Middle Belt and Southern parts of the country. They as well poison their dams. These are non-Muslim areas. They want to cripple the people economically; so that their victims will always depend on them, for buying of agricultural products like: rice, beans and yams, in large quantities.

The Fulani elites, aiding and abetting the destruction by Fulani terrorist herdsmen, have ulterior motives of doing so. They want to forcefully Islamize the people through killings, destroying of their farmlands, and burning of their houses. They want people to submit to Islamic enslavement, in the guise of cattle rearing. These adventurers are desperate to ‘conquer’ the areas their forefather, Usman Dan Fodio couldn’t conquer. They are on a futile mission.

Usman Dan Fodio, a Fulani, migrated into Nigeria from another country some centuries ago. He overran Hausa land with his jihad’s army. The Hausas initially accommodated, and gave them vast land to graze their cattle and settle. Later, they capitalized on their hospitality, conquered and Islamized them. Fulanis are tiny minority to the Hausas; less than six percent of the whole Nigerian population. Yet, most of the Emirs, Governors, and those occupying top positions from the North, are Fulanis. They have completely obliterated the Hausas. They have the erroneous belief they are born to rule, and lord it over other ethnic groups. They want to dominate and control every sector of the economy.

The peasant Fulani nomads, are being used by their elites as pawns to propagate ‘Jihad’ wars against non-Muslims they call infidels. These “Talakawas,” are ready tools in their hands. These illiterates have been compelled to live nomadic lifestyle, by helpless circumstances they have found themselves in.

In recent past, Northern elites used the ‘Almajiris’ (uneducated destitute children), to cause riots mostly in the North. They were being paid to embark on wanton destruction of lives and properties of Southerners; especially Igbos. Jonathan administration, heeded the advice of well meaning people, to rehabilitate the Almajiris.

Rehabilitation centres were promptly established for them, in many parts of the North. Today, Almajiris are virtually off the streets. The Northern elites can no longer use them to kill Southerners for their selfish, political ambitions. Now, they have shifted focus in financing insurgents, and Fulani Terrorist herdsmen.

They can never use their own children or close relatives, to do those dirty jobs: of killing people and committing other heinous crimes. They don’t want the insurgents and Fulani nomads to settle down, be educated, and live normal lives; lest there be nobody to do the killings for them. The evils that men do live with them.


Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State, called on all Fulani herdsmen resident in other parts of the country, especially Benue and Taraba states, to relocate to his state since the state has vast grazing land, to accommodate them and their cattle.

Ganduje, a Fulani, who stated this while inspecting the vaccination of over one million cattle, and other small animals free-of-charge, at Kadawa artificial insemination centre in Garum Malam Local Government Area of the state, as part of activities to mark the 2017/2018 livestock vaccination programme, condemned the recent killings emanating from clashes between farmers and herdsmen, describing it as unacceptable.

The governor further said that, as part of the government’s commitment to encourage herdsmen in the state, Kano State government has continued to provide facilities that will contain the herdsmen, and their cattle to prevent them from traveling to other states, in search of grazing lands. Ganduje also stated that Fulani herdsmen of Kano origin, do not move out of Kano to other states, because we have enough grazing land, ranches and traditional stock route.

He said: ‘’So, they don’t have any reason to move out of the state. We take care of them, and we accord them the respect and dignity they deserve. “I am inviting herdsmen from all parts of Nigeria to relocate to Kano, because we have enough facilities to accommodate them. We have grazing lands in Rogo, Gaya, Kura, Tudun Wada, Ungogo and other reserved places where facilities are in place to accommodate the herdsmen and their cattle.”

The governor also revealed that already, his administration was in collaboration with the Federal Government, and foreign agencies to convert the Falgore Games Reserve into a modern grazing land. “Falgore Game Reserve can take care of millions of herdsmen and their cattle in Nigeria. The place has been designed to contain schools, human and animal clinics, markets, recreational centres, and other social amenities that can give the herdsmen enough comfort, to take care of their animals and do their business, without hindrance. “These killings must stop. We cannot afford to continue to witness these senseless killings, in the name of Fulani herdsmen and farmers clash, over lack of grazing land, while we have a place like the Falgore Game Reserve under utilized.

“There is no longer fear of cattle rustling in Kano. Cattle rustling are now history, because we fought the menace headlong. In Falgore right now, we have enough security there. Those rustlers have relocated elsewhere, while some of them who repented from their evil ways, were given amnesty and rehabilitated,’’ Ganduje said. He also said that his administration has embarked on the registration of herdsmen, and the numbers of their cattle, to enable government take care of them through free vaccination, and other incentives that will add value to their business.

“A Cattle Intervention centre, has been established to address the challenges associated with, rumination of herdsmen within Kano. Just recently, we sponsored the training of over 61 Fulani, who were sent to Turkey to learn artificial insemination. “They are back to Kano, and I must tell you that they are doing well in various places, to have been assigned to do their jobs,” he stated

Will the Nigerian Islamic Government, welcome the kind gesture of Kano State Governor, Ganguje to relocate all herdsmen, and their millions of destructive cattle and their herdsmen, operating especially in Middle Belt region and Southern Nigeria? It is very unlikely they will welcome the gesture. They want to use the endless wars, between herdsmen and farmers for Islamic propagation, and Fulani expansionism, despite mayhem being committed by herdsmen.

We therefore call on international community, to prevail on the Nigerian Government, to relocate herdsmen and their cattle to Kano. That Northern State of Kano alone, can accommodate all the millions of cattle in West Africa sub-region. There are very vast grazing lands in Northern Nigeria, lying waste. You cannot force your violent religion on people, just because you want to have political dominion over them; and their mineral resources. Genuine conversions come through exemplary lives. Murderers, rapists, arsonists, and other undesirable elements, can never convert anybody to a true religion. They cannot convert people they are more wicked and evil than, to their false religion.

Exploitation Of Fulani Nomads.
Fulani nomads are being exploited by their elite kinsmen, for their selfish, political gains. They are being used to wage senseless wars, to destroy farmlands of ‘infidels’ as they call them.

Northern elites discovered longtime ago, they can effectively use their illiterate and semi-illiterate tribesmen, to commit all manner of atrocities, in order to subjugate other tribes or religions. Therefore, they would want them to remain uneducated and unsettled. Today, millions of Hausas and Fulanis are brainwashed to shun western education. Fulani herdsmen wander inside the bush for miles day and night, while rearing cattle: at the alternate onslaught of rain and sunshine. They go about for days without bathing. They bath once in a while.

They are hired as herdsmen, and paid peanuts as wages by the wealthy cow owners, who never allow their own children to do such strenuous and dehumanizing jobs. These shabbily dressed, and haggard looking herdsmen, have no residence. They sleep at odd places in the night, mostly outside buildings. Sometimes they sleep in open places with their cattle.

They have been indoctrinated to discard western education. They see it as evil, and against their religious beliefs. They can neither read nor write. As well, they can’t communicate with people who don’t understand their local language. Moreover, they can’t speak or hear piggin English. They are stark illiterates, who don’t pity those they overrun their farmlands. They are people of low mentality.

Therefore, the mindset of average Fulani nomad, is a little higher than those of animals he controls. He values cows more than human beings. To him, killing, raping, destruction of people’s farms, are normal ways of life. His conscience is seared. There is nobody to instruct or educate him, on the difference between good and evil. Then, he follows what his primitive mind tells him to do. He practices bestiality _having sexual intercourse with cows, or other animals.

Basic and qualitative education for Fulani herdsmen, is the panacea to their destructive tendencies, and unruly behaviours. It will go a long way to curb the animalistic instincts in them. Government total disregard for nomadic education in Nigeria, is not helping matters. It is a deliberate act to perpetuate the nefarious activities of herdsmen, and other miscreants on defenseless people.

Nigerian Government headed by Buhari, should embrace the offer made by Kano State Governor Ganguje. He has called on all herdsmen to relocate to Kano; especially the ones operating in Middle Belt region, and Southern parts of the country. He said there is enough space, and pasture for millions of cattle and their herdsmen.

There are facilities put in place in Kano, for the Fulani nomads and their families to settle down, and live normal lives. There are schools both for adults and children. Also, there are skill acquisition centres for them. Elite cattle owners, who hire the services of those stark illiterates, as nomadic cattle rearers, never care about their well being. Cattle reared in ranches are much healthier than nomadic ones. They cannot continue to rely on the antiquated method, of wandering about making trouble, in the name of cattle rearing. They constitute themselves into a nuisance, to inhabitants of cities and communities they have encounters with, and their farmlands. Lands are no longer available for open grazing as of old. More people are using lands for cultivation. No leader of any country with his right senses, will permit open grazing; unless he has ulterior motives, of using it to kill inhabitants in the affected areas.

If you employ somebody that has sound education up to secondary school level, with proper moral upbringing, you cannot easily manipulate him to do evil. If you instruct him to go and destroy farmlands, rape, and kill people, he will ask you why? He will want to know, why you are not using your own children, and close relations, to perpetrate such evils acts.

Education makes people to value human lives. Before they can stretch out the hands, to maim or kill their fellow human beings, they will think twice. Sound religious upbringing and good morals, go together. Any religion that encourages rape is a false religion_ from the pit of hell.

If at all they are worshiping God Almighty, they should adhere to His injunction, not to allow their livestock to stray into people’s farmlands to destroy crops. “If a man shall cause a field or vineyard to be eaten, and shall put in his beast, and shall feed in another man’s field; of the best of his own field, and of the best of his own vineyard, shall he make restitution”—Exodus 22:5.

How can a normal human being, enter into another person’s yam barn in the farm, with multitude of cattle, and begin to cut harvested yams into pieces, and feed them to his cattle? It is happening right here in Nigeria. Videos don’t tell lies. It is only in Nigeria, that such a wicked act can occur. Nigeria is a lawless country, with wicked and hypocritical rulers! They only use religion and tribalism, to perpetuate themselves in power. They don’t fear or reverence God.

No Nigerian ruler will ever step down from office, due to allegations of corruption and misrule against him. Recently, former President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma resigned as a result of corruption allegations. Rulers in other countries can step down, on accusation of embezzling funds, running into thousands of dollars. But, Nigeria rulers steal in tens of billions of dollars, of oil money with impunity. They can never resign or retire; no matter their circumstances. They recycle themselves to remain in power, from military to civilian. They are stubbornly waiting for God, to butt them out of power!

We therefore call on Nigerian Authorities, to withdraw those jihadist foot soldiers, camouflaging as cattle herdsmen, terrorizing communities. They are on futile mission. They can’t conquer any territory again. This is because, people’s eyes are now wide open; to defend themselves against barbarians!


Grazing Bill And Cow Colonies.
That bill is a deliberate attempt, to take our lands and hand them over to the Fulani cattlemen, since only Fulanis rear cattle in Nigeria. That law, when passed, shall fulfill the directive of Usman Dan Fodio and other northern leaders to take over other parts of Nigeria.

When you create a conflict which has its roots in religion, ethnicity, land rights, the attempt to marginalize, dominate, subjugate, and conquer others, and the quest for liberation, and freedom from slavery, and bondage all mixed into one, you are toying with a conflagration, that will not only be simply horrendous, and that will not only affect the whole of Africa, but will also last for the next fifty years.

“ National Grazing Reserve Bill before the National Assembly, will create a commission to be chaired by a Chairman, to be appointed by the President, to be confirmed by the Senate. The commission shall have the power to take your land, anywhere the land is located in the country, and then pay you compensation. Your land, when taken, shall be assigned to herdsmen, who shall use your land for grazing purposes. They shall bring cows to the land, and you shall lose the land permanently to those cattlemen. If you feel that the commission was not right to take your land, you can go to court but before you go to court, you must first of all notify the federal attorney general of your intention to sue the commission. Apart from notifying, you must get the consent, and authority of the federal attorney general, before you can sue.

So, that means that if the attorney general refuses to give his consent to the suit, you have lost your land forever to the herdsmen. And this law, when passed, shall apply to the whole country. So it means that your land in the village or anywhere is not safe. The National Grazing Reserve Commission, would have the power to take away your land, from you anytime they want, and pay you whatever they want as compensation (even when you don’t want to sell, and remember that for you to get compensation, you must have documents showing or proving ownership). So, I think that we all in the South-West, South-South, and South-East, must rise up and reject this Bill. We must do all things, to force our national Assembly members, from passing that obnoxious Bill into law.

I implore you, to use all available means to implore your Senators, and Reps not to pass that law. That law will destroy Nigeria. All over the world, ranches are established and used to rear cattle. The farmers buy land, and put their cattle there. There is no country where the land of the citizens, are compulsorily acquired and given to others.

This National Grazing Reserve Bill, if passed into law will just mark the beginning of apartheid in our country. We must resist the passage of that Bill into law to save Nigeria, and to protect our future generations.

Our tribal rulers usually go for divisive policies, aimed at subjugating other tribes, especially those in the Southern parts of the country. They have inflicted sever pains and hardship on the masses, through bad governance: owing of workers and pensioners for year; mass retrenchment and moribund industries; continuous importation of fuel; and rising cost of goods and services; terrorism of Boko Haram and Fulani Herdsmen, name them.
In the midst of all these man-made sufferings, our rulers from the North, are desperate to perpetuate the lordship of Fulanis, over the rest of the country, through the obnoxious grazing reserves, or cattle colonies. They aid and abet the atrocities of Fulani herdsmen across the country. They want to use it to force people to give up their lands, to these same evil men. The latter will eventually use the allocated lands, as springboard to launch deadly attack, and overrun the communities.
We call on members of the National Assembly, especially the ones from Middle Belt, and Southern part of Nigeria, to resist the recolonization of the country by Fulanis, under any guise. I know that Satan-inspired Grazing Bill, will never see the light of the day; no matter the amount of bribery going on there. We have people of proven integrity; who will not sell the future of their people for blood money.
This situation has called to question, the continued existence of Nigeria as one country. Nigeria has been turned to theater of killings across the country; and those at the helm of affairs are doing nothing about it, as they are part of problem. Moreover, the perpetrators are over-pampered and heartless Fulanis. Fulani herdsmen are being used to wage a proxy war against non-Muslim areas in the country. Even Policemen are being butchered; and nobody doing anything about it.
Self-determination is the lasting solution, to the kind of tribal and dictatorial administration, we are passing through now. Agitation for actualization of Biafra has been on for over fifty years now. We have been calling on United Nations, and other International Communities to come to our rescue. It has so far fallen on deaf ears. There is a conspiracy of many Muslim nations, who seem to dominate UN proceedings, in condoning trivializing the atrocities of dictators in Nigeria.
Whatever happens, we have strong confidence in Almighty God, the creator of the whole universe. He will deliver us from the Hausa/Fulani slavery we have found ourselves in, since the so-called independence. Britain_ that imperialist nation that puts us in this mess, will live to regret it.

        Evangelist Joseph U. Afurobi

True religions, are known by the good conducts of their practitioners. True religion is all about worshiping the only true Almighty God; the creator of the whole universe. It abhors worshiping of idols and devils. Tenets of true religion, tallies with good morals, virtues, among other things.

In these end times, many rapists, killers, or terrorist gangs, are springing up, to wreck havoc in the society. They pretend to be rendering services to God, in their nefarious activities. How can terrorist groups, who rape and impregnate girls and married women, say they are propagating a true religion? Few years ago, members of a terrorist group in Syria, captured girls and women. They raped them. The explanation of those hoodlums, was that they were preparing for war. When rapist gangs are not killing ‘infidels’ or non-Muslims, they killing each other. You wage a so-called holy war, then rape, slaughter, burn people alive, and commit all manner of heinous crimes. You do so, just because you want to force people to be converted to your violent, and questionable religion?

God is a God of holiness and uprightness. Such hypocrites don’t have any fear of God in them, though they claim to know Him. They are all agents of Satan the devil, hiding under religion to perpetrate evils. Unless they repent, they will die and go to hell.

They consult mediums, obtain charms, amulets, talisman, and all worth not, from marabouts, juju priests, and their likes. They use those evil powers to fight, kill, maim, burn houses, etc, all in name of forcing their evil religion on people.

God said, “There shall not be found among you any one that causes his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that
uses divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD your God drove them out from before you”—Deuteronomy 18:10-12.

They that trust in idols and charms, shall be disappointed and ashamed. At the LORD’s appointed time, He will knock off their evil powers. Then, they will be disappointed and ashamed. Those things they are afraid of shall come upon them.

They cannot convince anyone that their religion is genuine. How can they force people to join their killer religion, when they themselves are more evil and wicked, than their victims? Seeking to convert people to God, is a call to righteousness and exemplary lifestyle. They should show example by living righteous and upright lives. Anything to the contrary is devilish and deceitful.

We ministers of the gospel, don’t force conversion on people, or commit heinous crimes, in the name of religion. We don’t convert people to religion. Rather we turn them from darkness into the marvelous light. Of course, we don’t compete and contend with any religion. Our weapon of warfare is not canal, but might through God to the pulling down of strongholds.

We call on world powers, including United States of America to launch more military strikes on those rapist, terrorist groups. US has the moral obligation, as the leading world power to fight human right abuses anywhere in the world. United Nations and other International bodies, lack the will power to directly launch strikes against terrorists and wicked groups.

The International Community is doing marvelously well in humanitarian services through their agencies like: UNESCO, UNICEF, and so on. But, something has to be done urgently, to respond to satanic gangs who rape their victims, and commit other atrocities, and claim to be fighting for Allah. They are into false religions!

Dynamism Of The Gospel
We thank God Almighty, who has preserved the Christian population in Nigeria for decades. If not for Him, there wouldn’t have been anything like Christians in the troubled country; in the face of onslaught against them, by all forms of religious fanatics, and their sponsors. People are correct when they say Nigeria is the most dangerous place for Christians to live in.

Nevertheless, Christ said, occupy till I come. When the enemies shall come like a flood, the Spirit of God shall raise a standard against them. We are here to prevail against enemies of the gospel, in their futile efforts to stop Christianity in Nigeria. At each point in time, the LORD would arise to deal with the rulers in the country; religious hypocrites who are bent on Islamizing the country for their selfish, political and tribal reasons.

A number of former Military juntas, and Presidents of Nigeria have made spirited efforts to Islamize and subjugate Christians, under one guise or the other. But, they always fail woefully, as God deals with them. In some cases, he would remove them from power.

For instance, in the 1980s, the LORD removed some juntas from power. They proved stubborn, but He butted them out of office. He made it abundantly clear to everyone of them through His servants, that He wants Nigeria to remain a secular country. That is to say, they shouldn’t impose any religion on the people, as State religion. That they shouldn’t judge anybody because of his religion. He is the one to judge. Further more, He said the religious war is an endless war. He cited example of what is happening in the Middle East.

It is sad to note, that same crop of persons God removed from power, are now coming up in a desperate attempt to impose Islam, and Fulani lordship over the country. In the past, they tried it through registering Nigeria as a member of OIC_ Organization of Islamic Countries. They failed woefully. Again, they sponsored series of riots in many Northern cities, using Almajiris, and some religious sects. The plan crumbled.

They financed Boko Haram terrorists, as they are still doing today. It didn’t work out. They couldn’t penetrate Middle Belt region, and Southern Nigeria. In fact, the terrorists or insurgents, were driven to border communities with neighbouring countries; like Chad and Niger. Now, they are using armed groups who go by the name Fulani Herdsmen, to wage war against non-Muslim communities, in the guise of cattle rearing.

One thing is very clear; they will never succeed in their murderous adventures. The reason is simple. God won’t allow Nigeria to be a Muslim country, or hijacked by any other religious group. The Northern elite sponsors of Fulani Herdsmen, think God has forgotten, or changed His mind about the status of Nigeria. They probably think it has taken long, or has been overtaken by events. They are ignorant of the fact that God stands by His word, even if spoken hundreds or thousands of years ago.

The LORD has ways of dealing with stubborn and proud persons. He turned Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon, into animal for seven years. When his senses returnee to him, he realized the Most High reigns in the kingdom of men. He struck Uzziah King of Judah, with a strange disease, because of his pride and arrogance. He died in that disease!

Jehovah dealt with King Herod, who took pleasure in killing the people of God. The LORD sent His angel, to go and kill him in a public function. The angel smote him with an invisible sword, and he died on the spot.

Though we use defensive weapons to defend ourselves, “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;_ II Corinthians 10: 4-5.

We Ministers of the gospel, don’t believe in wanton destruction of lives and property, in order to bring people to kingdom of God. We don’t propagate religion as bigots do. A Christian Missionary can move into a crime-prone area unarmed. Eventually, he will convince the criminals there, to give up their arms and turn new leaves. As well, idol and devil worshipers, and other ungodly persons will repent, without any force being used on them.

Those who finance wicked people, to kill their fellow human beings for whatever reason, should not forget God’s injunction, that he who lives by the sword, shall perish by the sword. Everyone shall one day stand before God Almighty, to give account of his life. Some will go in for everlasting life, while others will go for everlasting punishment.
