The Coalition of Fulani Association in Nigeria have alleged that no fewer than 3.7 million of their cows have so far been stolen, killed and sold to pay ransom for their loved ones in the last 4 years.
Making their position known in Sokoto after a meeting to discuss the challenges confronting Fulanis in Nigeria and the way forward, the chairman of the coalition, Honorable Aminu Tukur said, they are facing very severely unbearable scenario in Nigeria lately.
Collaborating his position, the National Chairman of Hand Allah Fulani Development Association In Nigeria, Alhaji Sale Mayaki said they were in Sokoto not on any political mission but to discuss what affects the Fulani nationality in Nigeria.
“Our agenda is not politically driven. Almost 20 years, every Fulani in Nigeria knows that they are in serious trouble. Some decades ago, none of our parents and grandparents thought of animal rearing becoming a leeway for armed robbery, kidnapping or killings.
“In the last 3 years, over 2,500 Fulani were killed. We lost over 3.7 million cattle from Bauchi, Zamfara, Sokoto, Kaduna, Kogi we loss members, cows and are unjustly arrested.
“Though, 3641 were said to be killed in the last 3 years by Amnesty International report. We however knows that the figure could be more. Though, we appreciate their contribution.
“The question is are we not human? Nigerian Fulanis are in support of Amnesty International report. What they have reported is not about politics but the reality of our existence in the country.
“Talking about our deprivation, the Federal government gave 60bn to farmers for loss of agricultural products. But we that loss humans and livestock had no compensation of a dime from this government.
“No single Fulani benefited from the Trade Moni programme of the federal government”.
