Nigerian politicians say the West is “blind” to Fulani terrorists


Former Nigerian Minister’s Accusation The Fula have killed 500,000 Nigerians in the last five years

Ann Accord It was signed by the G20 Foreign Minister on June 28 to eradicate the remnants of Islamic State in Iraq and Syria and stop the fear of expanding ISIS-related groups in Sahel, Africa.

Western nations have missed the opportunity to identify Hong, the Fula militia, the fourth deadliest terrorist group in the world. Femi Fanika Yode told the Epoch Times. Fani-Kayode is a former Nigeria Airways Minister and leader of the opposition Democratic Party for the People.

“The Fula terrorists, who are described as the world’s fourth-largest deadly terrorist group in the International Terrorist Index, are spread all over the country, camp in the southwestern forests, camp in the southeastern forests, and have members. Killing. Locals have camped in all states in the central zone and in all states in the northeast.

“They are by far the most dangerous, the most powerful, the most organized and probably the most funded,” said Fani Kayode.

In Nigeria, Africa’s largest state, bandits often transition to terrorist agents, according to former US ambassador to the Sahel, J. Peter Pham.

The gang kidnapped 146 high school students in Kaduna early in the morning of July 5. “According to my calculations, about 1,000 children were kidnapped for ransom this year,” Fam told The Epoch Times.

Nevertheless, the focus of the G20 Foreign Ministers, who gathered in Rome on June 28, was head-on with the Islamic State militia. One of the reasons the G20 group did not mention Fula terrorists was its respect for the Allied government of Nigeria. “Nigeria will never agree with that,” Fam said.

“We strongly support the Italian initiative to ensure that the coalition for Daesh concentrates its expertise in Africa, paying attention to Syria and Iraq,” Blinken told ISIS at a press conference in Rome. It is reported that he mentioned it by an informal name.

According to the joint communiqué, “The coalition is working with affected countries to address the threat posed by Daesh / ISIS in Africa and ensure a lasting global defeat of the organization.” It states. “Ministers strengthen civilian state institutions and strengthen the rule of law, including law enforcement capabilities, is an integral part of fighting Daesh / ISIS, and the World Union to defeat Daesh / ISIS is Africa. Continent. “

Fani Kayode said: [Fulani killing squads]We fully understand that a civil war will eventually occur in Nigeria, and perhaps that’s exactly what they want. “

“They make a lot of the fact that they’re fighting Boko Haram, but that’s what they never actually did and never did. They say they’re going to fight ISWAP. [Islamic State West African Province, the rival of Boko Haram] They may, but it’s not here or there because ISWAP doesn’t challenge as much presence as the Fula herders and Boko Haram, “he added. “But they didn’t comment because they know that there are more Fula terrorists than groups that have invaded everywhere in the country.”

“The reason the Nigerian government is less strict with Fula terrorists is that the country’s leadership is leaning towards the Fula rather than against everyone else. The president himself is a Fula and he himself is a Fula. The army is dominated by the northern Muslims. All but one security agency is in the hands of the northern Muslims. They control all 17 security agencies. “

The former minister accused the federal government of Nigeria of participating in the massacre by allowing authorities to withdraw after the massacre in the country’s median strip.

“The federal government is blind to the massive killings that are taking place. In fact, I believe the Fula militants have killed up to 500,000 Nigerians in the last five years alone. Haram has killed up to 1 million people since around 2010, and of course ISWAP has killed up to 100,000 people in the last few years, but certainly the Fula militants and thieves have killed more than anything else. ” He said.

“They were also members of the Hausa indigenous people, and even the Fula themselves, who disagreed with them, killed thousands in the northern center, because these people are mainly foreigners. They are Mali. They come from places like Burkina Faso, Senegal, Chad, the Republic of Niger, and all their neighbors. They just come here to kill and destroy, and that’s their agenda, “he said. It was.

Other criticisms of Rome’s foreign minister communiqué came from Obadiah Mairafia, presidential candidate for the 2019 elections. “Western ministers cannot ignore Fula terrorists who are more slaughtered than ISWAP,” candid Myrafia told The Epoch Times from a private location in Nigeria.

He has been hiding for fear of imprisonment without bail since security agencies cross-examined him last September. “The Foreign Minister should direct the searchlight not only to ISWAP but also to Fulani terrorists,” he said.

“If the federal government has indicated its intention to arrest Nnamdi Kanu, [leader of the Biafra separatist movement], They should be willing to arrest the Fula herders who are terrorizing our state and our country, “Benue Governor Samuel Otom said at a press conference on June 30. I did. Otom talked about the Mieti Allah Quatre Breeders Association, a leader of Fula terrorists.

“Governor of Benue Ortom is basically [Nigerian President] The Buhari administration arrested a leader who was upset to free his people while terrorist Mietti Allah was killing the Nigerians, “said God, a Protestant minister in Hyattsville, Maryland. Rev. Win Wukani wrote in a text message in the Epoch Times. Ukuani was a child of the civil war Biafra, who claimed the lives of more than 5 million Igbos between 1967 and 1970.
