Just when you thought covid-19 was enough problem for Nigeria in 2020, Miyetti Allah showed up. And unsurprisingly, the country is now back to the old ways of exchanging threats over who owns or controls what in the country.

The leader of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), Alhaji Abdulahi Bodejo, has in a recent statement, said that Fulani don’t need permission from anyone to settle in any land of their choice because Nigeria belongs to them and they founded it.

He also revealed that his organisation had concluded arrangements to flag-off its own security outfit with about 5,000 to 100,000 vigilantes to be deployed across all the states of the country.

The Fulani leader said that like Amotekun, where the States Houses of Assembly in the South West made laws to back it up, the Fulani security outfit won’t be needing the law to support it because every place the Fulani find themselves, “that is their own Assembly.”

But Bodejo's statements were seen as threats to other parts of the country especially in the South where security outfits have been established to address security challenges linked with herdsmen activities in the region.

Youth wing of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo in response to Bodejo's threats, requested that the Federal Government issues a 24-hour ultimatum to the leadership of Miyetti Allah withdraws its statement on the threat to role out 100, 000 Fulani vigilantes across the nation.

The Igbo youths also called on the Federal Government to arrest the leader of MACBAN, Alhaji Abdulahi Bodejo, for making such comment.

Osmond Nkeoma who is the National Publicity Secretary of the Igbo youth wing of Ohanaeze, made the call in an exclusive chat with Sunday Sun.

Nkeoma pointed out that the only way the Federal Government could exonerate itself from such comment was to order the group to withdraw its statement failure of which would be interpreted that the group had Federal Government’s backing.

According to Nkeoma “we have seen that Miyetti Allah is serving the government with three agenda, they are now the mouthpiece executing the government’s sinister motive.

“If every other tribe can take that statement, we the Igbo, we have pride, we can’t take it , especially the Igbo youths, if the Fulani feel that they are in the majority in Nigeria, they are day dreaming, our parents learnt their lessons from the civil w*r and they painstakingly passed them to us."
