‘Fulani Herdsmen Have A Sinister Agenda To Overrun Nigeria’ – Okurounmu
A top chieftain of the pan-Yoruba socio-cultural organization, Afenifere, Senator Femi Okurounmu, has said that Fulani herdsmen have a sinister mission and agenda.
In an exclusive interview with Daily Sun, Okurounmu alleged that the agenda is to overrun Nigeria, with an aim to subjugate other Nigerians.
“Fulani herdsmen want to take over Nigeria, and they are doing it with the open support of President Muhammadu Buhari. Look at the recent carnage in Adamawa State by Fulani herdsmen, did you see Buhari talking about it or condemning his Fulani kinsmen? No.
“But if it were to be the other way round, that is if it is the Fulani that were being killed and villagers razed, Buhari would not only have come out openly to condemn the attack, he would have ordered the Inspector General of Police, the Army, DSS and other security agencies to deal with those who attack the Fulani herdsmen.” the chieftain said.
Okurounmu however added that the only way to checkmate Fulani herdsmen is for Nigerians to fight them back.
His words: “Where they attack people, people should not fold their hands, they should fight back. Fulani constitute less than 10 percent of Nigerian population. So why should we allow them to hold us to ransom. When Nigerians fight back, Buhari will then know what to do about his brothers. Then, he will know that he has to do something.”
