The Director General, Centre for Justice and Ethnicity in Nigeria, Pastor Kallamu Musa Ali Dikwa, has made a shocking revelation on what Fulani are planning to do in southern part of Nigeria.
According to him, Fulani people chased their ancestors away from Borno and took over the land, adding that their next target now is to occupy another region.
Kallamu was reacting to the recent order by Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State that Fulani herdsmen should vacate Ondo forest reserves within 7 days.
The cleric told SaharaReporters, governors from the South-East, South-West and South-South to follow suit.
He said, “The southern governors had better take charge of their lands and send the Fulani people back to the North. Must they stay in the South? I am speaking from experience because I am from Borno State and these people took all our land. They sent our fathers and mothers away from the farms. Our people are in internally displaced persons’ camps; they cannot stay in the villages for fear of being killed.
“Any Fulani you see in Borno is a settler, we accommodated them and see what we got. The target is Southern Nigeria and it is better the people speak up now, so that Fulani will not take over the land.”
He added, “In Abuja here, the bureau de change operators cannot even speak Hausa, they are not Nigerians but Nigeriens. They have come to take over the economy and once they do that, they will start controlling us.”
He said: “That pastor will not tell you this, they are being diplomatic with this kind of information instead of speaking out so everybody will know. The problem of insecurity has come to stay, but we need to speak out so the narrative can change. We can’t keep folding our arms while our people are being killed.
“Two of the kidnappers who kidnapped the pastor here in the North are actually based in Benin City, Edo State; they are already in the South. The onus is on the governors to take charge. Federal government will not help anyone.”
