Stop calling Fulanis criminals - Northern Governors

30 April 2016, 11:00

Abuja - Governors from the northern part of the country have come to the defence of the Fulanis, following the recent attacks by Fulani herdsmen in different parts of the country.

The governors' forum, in a meeting in Kaduna on Friday, said even though it condemned the recent attacks by suspected herdsmen in Enugu and other parts of the country, it was out of place by anyone to label all criminals as Fulani.

Chairperson of the Northern States Governors Forum (NSGF) and Governor of Borno State, Kashim Shettima, said it was an insult to consider criminals as Fulani.

He said: “We want to unequivocally condemn the recent killings in Enugu and other parts of the country. But we equally condemn the politicization or permit me, the ‘ethinicisation’ of the whole crisis,” the governor said.

“It goes beyond Fulani. If anything happens, they say Fulani herdsmen. To me, it is an insult.

“Kidnapping in this country originated in the Southeast, were they called Igbo kidnappers? We have a great national challenge and we want to call on all and sundry to come and let us solve our common challenges as a people."
