Saturday 2 March 2019, was an awful day for the people of southern Kaduna and Bare village in Numan Local Government Area of Adamawa as Fulani herdsmen resumed their ethnic cleansing, to celebrate the re-election of Mohammadu Buhari as president of Nigeria.

It was reported that 40 people were killed in a church in southern Kaduna and several feared dead in Bare village, when Fulani herdsmen attacked.

This coming just days after Muhammadu Buhari, a Fulani, was declared president gave a glimpse of what Nigerians should expect in the next 4 years.

Buhari has already warned that his second term would be tough and it seem to have started early for the people of southern Kaduna and Bare Village in Adamawa.

I know Southern Kaduna. It is inhabited by one of the kindest people on earth. Bare people are a peace loving people. The crimes of these people are protesting the grazing of cows in their farms and being of different ethnicity and religion.

They have suffered for welcoming the Fulanis to live in their midst. Now Buhari has a plan to extend Fulani enclaves around Nigeria so that Nigerians can receive the Fulani response to hospitality of their hosts.

Is it not strange that Fulani herdsmen terrorism was never mentioned during the election.

Since INEC declared President Buhari the winner of the presidential election, there has been an upsurge in Fulani herdsmen terrorism.

The ethnic cleansing in southern Kaduna has claimed thousands of lives and many more Fulanis from other west African countries continue to pour into Nigeria to take over cleansed villages.

Both the Kaduna state and federal government have failed to bring the perpetrators of these heinous crimes to justice. It is clear that ethnic cleansing of Nigerian villages is official policy of the Fulani oligarchy, which wants to take over Nigeria.

The recent election has revealed the extent underage children were registered in the north and That the Buhari government is using registration of children to give the Nigerian citizenship to Fulanis from other west African countries, thereby skewing the democratic demography in the favour of the north.

At the moment, the government has earmarked billions of Naira for the sole purpose of settling Fulanis from other west African countries in different regions of Nigeria in what it describes as Fulani colonies to continue a primitive life style that destroys the environment, by the methane gas which cows release and increase desertification.

History has shown that Fulani communities forcefully take over land wherever they settle and pitch themselves against their host communities which they aim is to take over, conquer and subdue.

We cannot have a Nigeria where Fulanis are free to graze their cattle on other people’s farm and commit crime against humanity by engaging in ethnic cleansing, without consequences.

July 2020, again Fulani terrorists killed 10 persons in two separate attacks on three villages of southern Kaduna, Jema’a and Kaura local government areas.

Governor Nasir El-Rufai had on 31 July extended the 24-hour curfew imposed on troubled Zangon-Kataf to Jema’a and Kaura LGAs to bring the situation under control.

The governor, on his Twitter handle on Friday night, said, “at the request of security agencies, the Kaduna State government has extended to Jema’a and Kaura LGAs the 24-hour curfew.

This time, the bandits attacked Zikpak, Ungwan Masara, in Fantsuam Chiefdom of Jema’a Local Government and Maraban Kagoro, in Kaura LGA, around 7pm on Friday, 31 July 2020.

The attack on the three communities left nine persons dead on the spot, another one died a few hours later, while at least 12 people were said to have sustained varying degrees of injuries. Many houses were also razed.

The latest killing in Southern Kaduna is the latest evidence that those who depend on the Fulani headed Kaduna state government and the Fulani headed federal government of Nigeria to keep them safe would be killed.

What is unfolding in southern Kaduna is a genocide. The federal government of Nigeria and Kaduna state government are using exactly similar tactics used by Nazis Germany to exterminate theJews. Cold indifferent and masterly inactivity.

They are using the army and police to stop the people from defending themselves.

They use the army and police to search the homes of indigenous Christian population to confiscate any weapon they may use to defend themselves.

Then the army and police withdraw and the Fulani terrorists come and slaughter the helpless villagers.

This is one of the most monstrous evil taking place in the world today.

Then the Myetti Allah, Kaduna state government and Buhari led federal government issue false statements claiming that the killing are reprisal killings by bandits for cattle rustling or blame the youth, who know nothing about it.

At the same time, the Kaduna state government and federal government do nothing, while Fulanis take over the villages whose population they have killed or displaced. There has been no concerted effort to seek out the terrorists in their camps and bring them to justice.

It is worth noting that both the Kaduna state government and Federal Government of Nigeria are headed by Fulanis. How can Nigeria be one country, when Christians are not safe under government headed by Fulani Muslims?

This is a heinous injustice and crime against humanity and those who are in positions to stop and remedy it have turned a blind eye.

They have chosen to aid the ethnic cleansing of the indigenous population because of who they are and it is very sad.

My heart aches. I ask; where are the so called Nigerian leaders? Where are the Gowons, Obasanjos, T Y Danjumas, senators, legislators and opinion leaders etc?

Where are Nigerians, while Muslim dominated Kaduna state government and Muslim dominated Buhari Government supervise the ethnic cleansing of indigenous Christian populations?

Where are Nigerians, when Miyetti Allah continues to fund Fulani terrorism all over Nigeria?
