Coordinator of the Kwara State chapter of Miyetti Allah Association of Cattle Breeders, Aliyu Mohammed, has stated that the transportion of cattle and foodstuffs to the South West through Kwara State will remained blocked until the safety of Fulani is guaranteed in the region.
Mohammed made this known to newsmen on Sunday, he said the action is to ensure a peaceful operation of businesses by the Fulani and to end the harassment of the tribe in the south.
He debunked allegations levelled against the Fulani, claiming that not all of them were criminals, adding that the Fulanis are not the only ones commiting crimes in the country, but are being alleged with every crime.
The coordinator said the association was ready to fish out the bad eggs in their midst.
He said, “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 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.
He, however, applauded Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq for being accommodating and cooperating to ensure the safe landing of Fulanis in the state.
