Return to The North, Northern Elders Tells Fulani Herdsmen
The coalition of Northern Elders Forum and several Northern Groups have ordered Fulani herdsmen to leave the southern part of Nigeria.
The order according to the association is in line with their safety and property following a threat being recorded in the southern region of the country against Fulani herdsmen.
The new directive was made on Tuesday at a press conference organized by the forum with the backing of the youth wing of the association.
The Chairman of the body, Prof. Ango Abdullahi while addressing the media said the move became imperative in order to save their lives and cattle which is at risk due to the recent utterances and actions of southern governors.
We are worried about their well-being. If it is true that their safety can no longer be guaranteed, we rather have them back in areas where their safety is guaranteed.The bottom line is that their safety is far more important than their stay there.This is a country we all wish to keep together but not at the expense of other sections.
