The coordinator of the Kwara State chapter of Miyetti Allah Association of Cattle Breeders, Aliyu Mohammed, has dismissed the allegations that all Fulanis in the country are criminals.
He made this statement while speaking shortly after the association crucial meeting in Ilorin on Sunday.
According to him, the association is on the move to fish out the bad eggs perpetrating crimes on the disguise of been Fulanis.
“Just as you have in any society where there are good and bad people, ” Mohammed said.
“It is not only Fulanis that commit crimes in the country, but it was sad that everything happening now is heaped on Fulani herdsmen.
“We have concluded at our meeting today that anybody who comes to Kwara State claiming to be Fulani herder under questionable circumstances, will be reported to the security agencies for necessary action.
“Our vigilantes will monitor the bush and the forests where there are no security agencies and report suspected cattle rustlers who disguise as cattle herders to perpetrate crimes,” he added.
Mohammed however, appealed to the Federal government to arrest Sunday Igboho, who evicted the Fulani from Igangan in Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State, for the alleged destruction of their properties and killing of their people.
