Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore has warned that Fulanis are now more prepared for Nigeria’s breakup.
The National Secretary of the group, Alhassan Saleh said this amid the insecurity and tension caused by clashes between farmers and herders in some parts of Nigeria.
Recall that southern governors had recently banned open cattle grazing in the entire 17 southern states of the country.
Speaking to SaharaReporters, Saleh said Fulani herders are not the problem facing the country.
He added that the Fulani ethnic group is ready and more prepared than any other ethnic group for division of the country.
He said, “Herders are insignificant when it comes to problem of this country, are they the ones looting the treasury? What damages are they causing to this country? Compare to the criminal activities of ‘Yahoo’ boys (Internet fraudsters), kidnappers, political looters, bandits in power, vagabonds in power like Governor (Samuel) Ortom, do you think if there is no oil money, all these things will be happening?
“Today we are ready, let them divide the country, let them not wait till tomorrow. We are better prepared than any ethnic nationality. So we are ready, let them divide the country, let us die, we that don’t have the oil.”
