‘Nigeria Will Break Up If Fulani Herdsmen Are Evicted From The South’ – Northern Senators Warn

File: The Nigerian Senate in session

Senators from the nineteen states in Northern Nigeria have issued a communique today regarding threats emanating from certain regions of the country demanding immediate relocation of herdsmen.

The Northern Senators warned governors and village heads in South-East in particular to cease from making proclamations that could overheat an already polarized country.

Chairman of the Northern Senators’ Forum, APC Senator Abdullahi Adamu from Nasarawa West read a communique on behalf of the group. Senator said, “We appreciate the steps the federal government had taken so far to contain the problems of herdsmen/farmers clashes and call on community leaders to be careful when making statements on these ugly incidences.

“There would be no country called Nigeria, if other parts of the country asked Fulani herdsmen to leave their communities and states. We, therefore, warn everybody, including governors to desist from making inflammatory remarks. A governor is a community leader. The only difference is that he has a label called governor.

“If you don’t mind, attacks by Fulani Herdsmen in recent times started with the West when elder statesman, Chief Olu Falae, had some very nasty experience. It was attributed at the time to Fulani herdsmen. At the end, those people were apprehended and they were not Fulanis.

“This thing has been going on in virtually all parts of the country today. If we now say that everybody should rise and say herdsmen should leave, we will not have a country.”

Senator Adamu, who read from a communique issued at the close of the Northern Senators’ meeting stated the forum is determined to continue its unalloyed support for President Muhammadu Buhari. Adamu said the body believes President Buhari will bring about an even development across the length and breadth of the entire nation.

The Senators also promised that in order to stem the rising tide of clashes between Herdsmen and farmers, the Senate would either enact or amend laws that will ensure an amicable resolution of the herders/farmers’ crisis.

  1. first may i ask dis honourable senator if dis communique is a threat or advise is it is a threat they should first go and wake those people kill in enugu cos some of them has become widow and some children has become orphan in d light of dis if they were told to leave their land it is justify cos d herdsmen should have think of the consequence before embarking on d murderous mission.so is it a case of a certain tribe trying to exterminate other tribe will break d country let it be afterall is their nigeria before 1914.not only igbo will chase them away all other tribe too cos by d time they become an alien in other part of country they will come ba k to their senses and know how to behave

  2. Northerners senetors or wat eva dey call dem self if asking fulani people to leave southeast is wat will divide nigeria den we’ll be very happy to kill nd chase dem out of our land and let the so called country divide cos is dat’s exactly every southeast re longing for northerners leaders believe killing innocent people is wat will take dem to heaven dey re fools let dem do deir worst nd we will continues to chase fulani people out of our father’s land….

  3. Northern elders, senator and governors I want to ask you people a question. Being that 90% of the cattles manage by those terrorist belong to you men, therefore, who empowered those Islamic terrorist called herdsmen with heavy weapons to murder innocent villagers in Enugu , Akatu and others?

  4. A country where human beings are slauttered like chickens & cows protected like human being is unheared of, l think the earlier we don”t have a country called nigeria the better for all of us so that those that holds animal to high exteem as human can practice their idealogy & those that cherishes human life can also be free to do so.

  5. When Nigeria was celebrating the centenary of the amalgamation of the Northern and Southern Protectorates I said there was nothing to celebrate, and I asked if the amalgamation was in the interest of the Protectorates or to promote the economy of Britain. Misinformed Northern senators now threatening disintegration of the nation now if Fulani jihadists are not allowed to continue their orgy of killings in communities that host them across the nation is an unfortunate development. They need to know that such a breakup would only mean good riddance to bad rubbish and peace in such communities.
    They have no right to unleash terror on their host communities. It’s only where they do not exist they don’t kill people. They kill as far away as Ghana. Somebody may say those are Ghanaian Fulanis, but is that a better story? Must it be Fulanis again? God bless Nigeria.

    • Now the agenda is very clear of the long term programmed strategies by the Northern Islamic fanatics. No one need to be told again so whoever that had been sleeping is already awake.
      So we did not only have Northern governors forum but also have Northern senators forum? I laugh at your frustrations and fears. Hahaha.
      A normadic cattle rearer is now identified by some misled beings as an abstract first class citizen with h impunity to cause mayhem and without the existence of such fellow, it is now being said by these species that there will be no Nigeria. I laugh again… Hahahahaha

  8. The same senators, governors and all other men of consequence in the North are actually the real owners of the herds. The herdsmen are just recruited to move the cattle for gracing. If you check the assets declarations of these men you will see that hundreds of cattle are declared by each of them. That is how it is in the north. Indeed you are not a man of consequence if you do not own cattle. Some count in thousands. So it is not difficult to deduce the people that arm the herdsmen for the protection of the cattle especially in view of the incidence of cattle rustling in recent times. The Northern senators are only reacting to protect their economy. Nigeria belongs to all of us any group that must prosper at detriment of another will end up losing all, must we eat meat. Nobody is threatened if Nigeria will scatter because people of the South refuse to be slaughtered again let it scatter. throw out the rubbish: killers, cheats, liars and manipulators.
