Last year l enumerated the conquest of numerous nations by the Fula society in an article titled “The Fulani Game of Conquests, a Fact Beyond Comprehension.” Unfortunately, those that the message was meant for learned nothing from it. Perhaps their preoccupation of picking up crumbs from their master’s table kept them from reality. However, the recent move of the caliphate to establish Fulani vigilantes in Southeast and the Ruda settlement seem to be opening every blind eye.
Seeing ahead of time, the Supreme Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, warned against it but was ridiculed and jailed. Today, the harsh reality has dawned on so many, and even the likes of former president Olusegun Obasanjo who ridiculed Kanu are now echoing Kanu’s words.
The conquest of Nigeria by the Fulani race started a long time ago with Uthman Dan Fodio. On October 12, 1960, the Premier of the Northern region, Ahmadu Bello, reiterated the commitment of the Fulani to conquest when he said, “The new nation called Nigeria should be an estate of our great-grandfather, Uthman Dan Fodio. We must ruthlessly prevent a change of power. We use the minorities of the North as willing tools and the South as a conquered territory and never allow them to rule over us, and never allow them to have control over their future.”
The move to establish Fulani vigilantes and Ruga Settlements in Biafra-land is an attempt at instituting a Fulani militia for a total conquest of Biafra – a fulfillment of Ahmadu Bello’s dream. If this current government run by Fulani cabals is not hell-bent on bringing Bello’s wishes to practicality, why on earth should it dream up the idea of establishing Fulani militia in Southeast when it’s the same Fulani that have been terrorizing the region? If for anything the government feels there is a need to set up a vigilante group in the Southeast, why not use the indigenous people of Southeast themselves? Why bringing the Fulani? And if the Fulani vigilantes are that great, what then stops the federal government from unleashing them on Boko Haram that has been ravaging communities in the North?
Biafrans do not need any Fulani vigilante in their land, for a stranger cannot know the land more than the indigene. If the current government has no ulterior motive, let Biafran youths be equipped instead.
