Miyetti Allah Slams Fulani Lawmakers For Failing To Protect Herdsmen

Members of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore group have blasted Fulani lawmakers over their alleged inability to protect herdsmen.

The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore has lambasted Fulani lawmakers in the National Assembly for failing to protect the interest of herdsmen, according to a report by Punch.

The Secretary-General of the group, Saleh Al-Hassan expressed the group's grievance during an interview on Sunrise Daily, a Channels Television programme, on Friday.

He said, “Our elite have failed to protect us. Our National Assembly members that are of Fulani background are just there collecting money. They can’t protect their people. They don’t want to come out to say the truth.”

While insisting that herdsmen don’t bear arms, Al-Hassan said there would not be peace until those who feel cheated are given justice, adding that any attempt to chase them out of the country would fail.

Al-Hassan added, “If you have injustice in the land, you can only end up with negativity. There is nowhere you will find citizens being denied their economic rights and then you expect that there will be peace in that kind of place. What we are saying is give us a share of the land resources in this country.”

He also said herdsmen were the victims of the killings in Plateau and Benue states, saying no one had been brought to book for the killings of Fulani in Plateau State.

He said it was for this reason that the group decided to drag the state government before the ECOWAS court, where he said they were claiming N40bn for the killing of 5,000 herdsmen on the Plateau.

“So, no Berom man should begin to raise any moral justification. They are the ones that don’t want peace,” he added.
