Fulani herdsmen have killed 710 Nigerians in 10 months - IYM



– The Igbo Youths Movement has lamented
that the federal government and the DSS
have done little or nothing to stop the
invasion of communities by Fulani warriors
– The group claims herdsmen attacks began
after the new administration took over power
– Says it is disturbing that President Buhari
who incidentally is also a Fulani has
remained silent on the serial slaughter by
the Fulani herdsmen
Fulani herdsmen have killed 710 other
Nigerians excluding the 48 Agatu people in
Benue state in the last 10 months, according
to the Igbo Youths Movement (IYM).
The Igbo Youths Movement has accused
President Buhari of being silent on the
slaughter by the Fulani herdsmen across the
country.
The IYM reacting to the killings of about 40
indigenes of Nimbo in Uzo Uwani local
government area of Enugu state by Fulani
herdsmen on Monday, April 25, faulted the
manner in which President Muhammadu
Buhari was handling issues of herdsmen
attacks.




Afenifere tells Buhari
According to Vanguard, the group in a
statement signed by the founder of the IYM
and leader of the south east democratic
coalition, Evangelist Elliot Uko, lamented
that the federal government and the
Department of State Services (DSS) have
done little or nothing to stop the invasion of
the Fulani warriors.
IYM said: “For the first time, the nation’s
Department of State Services, DSS, only
interest in these avoidable blood baths, seems
only to accuse one organization of killing five
Fulani. That accusation is yet to be
substantiated with photographs or at least a
DSS invitation to media people to the graves in
order to corroborate their allegations.
“Monday morning, seven communities in Uzo-
Uwani Local Government Area of Enugu State
received it hot, as usual from the rampaging
Fulani warriors. Two churches, over 100
houses, dozens dead and hundreds injured
with many still missing.”
The group claimed that Fulani herdsmen
attacks began since the new administration
took over power, lamenting that the federal
government has failed to protect Nigerians
from the invasion of Fulani warriors, who
clearly act as if they know that the
government cannot save the helpless victims
from their attacks.
It said: “But above all, the ongoing war by the
Fulani herdsmen, have only confirmed Mazi
Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Independent
People of Biafra, IPOB, a prophet and
visionary, who saw tomorrow. Mazi Kanu
correctly predicted over the radio, what the
Fulani would do to the Middle Belt, South
East, South- South and the South West.


The group said it was disturbing that
President Muhammadu Buhari who
incidentally is also Fulani and life Patron of
Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association,
has remained silent on the serial slaughter
by the Fulani and the intimidation by the
security agents, adding that this has put
Mazi Kanu in the league of avatars, who
correctly predicted events before they
happened.
“This development has also greatly increased
Kanu’s popularity, especially among the
oppressed, suppressed and consistently
attacked populations, who now see him as a
hero and a legend. This has resulted in a
huge sympathy towards the gospel of IPOB
and its leader.”
Meanwhile, following bloody attacks by
herdsmen across the country, an Islamic
organisation, Muslims Against Terror, has
called on the federal government to declare
Fulani herdsmen involved in the killing of
farmers terrorists.
The group stressed that Islam forbids killing
and teaches “that anyone who kills a human
being- it shall be as though he has killed all of
the mankind; if anyone saves a life, it shall be
as though he has saved the lives of all
mankind.”
