Biafra: Fulani Herdsmen Attacks And The Quest For Cattle Colonies Are Willful Curricula And Contrivances of Buhari’s Islamization Agenda

By Chikwas Onu Ikpe || For Biafra Writers

January 24, 2018

From the incipience of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Nigeria in its "democratic state," it is not unclear that the gimmicks [the grazing bill proposal, establishment of cattle colonies, et al] of cattle nomadism are instrumental to obfuscating its instincts and motives.

It is worthy to note that the Fulani; a race of cattle nomads, began to enter what is now known as Northern Nigeria in the thirteen century, having believed that they came from Funta Jalon. By the sixteen century, they had spread throughout the Western Sudan, from Senegal to the Cameroons. This, however, was ensued by the emergence of the Jihadist-- Usman Dan Fodio-- who came from the Fulani clan of Funta Toro, and settled in Gobir (now called Sokoto).

Subsequently, Usman fell out with the King of Gobir, which birthed a war (actively by the Fulani) against the King's attack on their teacher [Usman]. Howbeit, Usman was proclaimed the 'Sarkin Musulmi' (King of the Muslims). Urged by his followers, he attacked and put to flight the forces of Gobir; hence capturing Gobir (Sokoto), eventually, Kano, Katsina, Zaria, and other towns his followers conquered.

How about the annexation of Ilorin, the capital city of the present day Kwara State? The Yorubas in Ilorin, in cahoots with the Fulani, shook off the Oyo yoke and a Fulani emirate was established there.

The recent Benue massacre, the gory onslaught in Nimbo (Enugu State), Ancha (Plateau State), Agatu (Benue State), and their likes are courtesies of a calculated ethnic cleansing mechanism, masquerading as Fulani herdsmen but driven more by an expansionist agenda. In other words, the Fulani cattle nomadism coupled with its killings are itineraries gearing towards the islamization of the entirety of Nigeria, especially the Middle Belt and the Southern region.

If you think I am scaremongering, let me convey to you, verbatim, the speeches of the Sarduana of Sokoto. Quoting from the chronicles of Sir Ahmadu Bello, the Sarduana of Sokoto, and great grandson of Usman Dan Fodio [the great Fulani Jihadist] - “We the people of the North will continue our stated intention to conquer the South and to dip the Koran in the Atlantic Ocean after the British leave our shores.
“I will allow Sir Tafawa Balewa to go and become Prime Minister and lead the unbelievers of the South whilst I will stay in the North and lead the faithful.”

To all intents and purposes, the incessant quest for cattle grazing reserves, colonies, and 'ethnic cleansing' of indigenous peoples by the Fulani herdsmen, are footholds heeling up towards the territorial usurpation, political subjugation, and ultimately, the effectuation of Islamic blueprints. Establishing "cattle colonies" is not the solution to the ostensible "herdsmen and farmers' crash," but a catalyst to quickening its evil intents. It is an elusive continuity of the Fulani jihad by the accoutered and protected Fulani herdsmen, with an orchestrated agenda to invade and islamize the Southern Nigeria (East and West, inclusive).

These deplorable, lamentable situations spew out mind-boggling questions. Since when did a private enterprise of cattle rearing become a national issue? Why has the Buhari-led administration found it a Herculean task to tame the menace of marauding Fulani herdsmen, but arousing the (Fulani) stratagem, in the mien of proposing grazing reserve bills and cattle colonies? Who has been arming the herdsmen with high-tech weaponry, not excluding AK47 rifles? Why haven’t the police nabbed even one person and bring (him) to book over these barbarity? Apropos, where are the "Pythons" and "Crocodiles" that were dancing in the peaceful towns of Biafraland? From all indications, however, it is not at all surprising over the 'partisan' allotment of key security positions of the federation to only a faction of the Hausa/Fulani; in spite of the shrieking cries of "ONE NIGERIA".

Resultantly, it is not a hypothesis but unmitigated to say that the Fulani herdsmen and their gambits are pawns in an axe to grind (hidden motive), to hem in non-islamic territories; then they would install emirs in Agatu, Jos, Enugu, and other towns that would abruptly endorse the Fulani ploys. If the Yoruba in Ilorin (Kwara State) had hitherto knowledge of what would become of them today, perhaps they would not have accommodated the Fulani, ab initio. The Hausa Sarkins [Kings] would have still been ruling the Northern Nigeria today, if Usman Dan Fodio and his war-mongering co-immigrants were not welcomed.


At this point, being the crux of the matter, I enjoin all indigenous peoples to rise up and (defend) gird themselves. Now I understand what our leader, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu meant, in his speech, during the 2015 World Igbo Congress in Los Angeles, USA. Upon abdication of duties (pursuant to the security and welfare of her citizenry) by the government, we must not fold our arms and watch the nomadic terrorists and expansionists pillage our land.

Self-defense is peremptorily the right of every human, even 'animals,' for the purpose of defending one's life or the lives of others. Hence, the use of 'defensive force' is justified. If a defendant whose life is on the line, owing to a threat of grievous harm by the other person, eventually uses a defensive force; the defendant is said to be justified vis-à-vis the instruments of "perfect self-defense".

Beyond any doubt, this is the end time of this struggle. Let us keep it on, undeterred, as we march towards the promised land - the land of BIAFRA. That very land that fructifies unceasing milk and honey. Do not look back. We shall emerge triumphantly.
