The Evil Called Ruga Settlements and the People of Cross River State

By Nelson Bond | For Biafra writers

July 28, 2019

RUGA – Rule Under Gun Attack – is a Fulani term. Ruga settlements (cow grazing area) is a grand project of the Fulani cabal calling the shots in the current Nigerian government to fully Islamize the entire country.

Already terribly felt across Biafra land are the barbaric activities of Fulani Islamic foot soldiers in the disguise of herdsmen. Destruction of crops, rape, and killings has continually been visited upon our people. These killer herdsmen, ranked the fourth most deadly terrorist group in the world, have been operating under the umbrella name “Myetti Allah cattle breeders association of Nigeria,” MACBAN.

The indiscriminate grazing around our communities generates erosion, displacement of settlements and other negative social vices associated with the herdsmen activities. Crop production along the southern region has largely depreciated, farmers being tensed and afraid of herdsmen attack. Contempt for human life and defiant trampling on the civic entitlements of indigenous communities as regards their productive ventures such as farming are all trademark of Fulani cow grazing.

This abhorrent and yet consistent pattern of sectarian and homicidal arrogance is obviously catastrophic, inhuman, and divisive.

We the indigenous people of Cross River state reaffirm our commitment to the right of every individual, community and associations. The move by the Fulani government of Nigeria to set up RUGA cattle settlements in our land is therefore rejected. All indigenous communities in Cross River and beyond should as a matter of urgency stand up to defend their ancestral land.
