Farmers, in their thousands, kept complaining and when the government of President Muhammadu Buhari remained uncaring, the affected farmers decided to wage wars against the notorious Fulani heavy-rifled-wielding marauders. What was Buhari’s reaction to fighting against his fellow Fulani herders? “You can’t be fighting your fellow brothers.” It was then I understood former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s warning that Buhari had hatched the campaign of the Fulanization of Nigeria. The former president knew what he was saying, obviously.
Before one knows what was happening, the herders had become bandits of terrorism. Guess what their slogan is? The inevitable, “Allahu akbar!” Many local governments are under their conquests, and they demand jizya – Muhammadan instruction of ‘tax levy’ on jihad-conquered-territories. These jihadists of Islamism have abducted thousands and demanded ransom that have always been on the very higher side of millions per person – all in the name of jizya of Muhammadan Islamism. An Islamic scholar, Sheik Ahmad Gumi, had on numerous times spoken on behalf of these terrorist, both in terms of aiding their ransom demand and making excuses for their nefarious acts. One wonders why the government of President Buhari could not use this Gumi’s connection to track and arrest these terrorists. You smell a rat? Well I do smell an elephant! A young girl, Leah Sharibu, when abducted along with other girls, refused to denounce Jesus, and in anger, the jihadists refused to release her. Since February 19, 2018 – over four years ago – Buhari’s government in conjunction with Sheik Gumi has failed to have her released. Gumi wants pardon and amnesty for the surrendering jihadists. There is every reason for any right thinking human being to believe that the government of Muhammadu Buhari is engaged in subtle support of Fulani and Boko Haram insurgency, which had annihilated communities.
