No less than two Fulani herdsmen have reportedly been killed by angry youth in Plateau state.
According to a social media user identified as Idris Ahmed, the incident occurred in a small village in Kamari Chaiwai, Bassa local government area in Plateau state.
Idris Ahmed in his social media post made on Facebook along with photos stated that the killings of the herdsmen in the locality has been a matter which had been going on for a long time.
He wrote on his Facebook page:
“It is now fast becoming a tragedy of biblical proportions. There seems to be a carefully planned agenda to exterminate the Fulani Herdsmen, with their pastoral way of life, in Nigeria, for political, religious and tribal expediency.
While the hypocritical media houses like the Channels TV, TVC, AIT, Vanguard, the Sun and other bigoted media outfits are fanning the ambers of wicked propaganda and hate against the Fulanis, some treacherous stake holders in Adamawa, Taraba, Benue and Plateau states, are actually busy executing a genocidal agenda against the Fulanis, with impunity!
Fulani Herdsmen, Anas Zakariya and Musa Idris were ambushed and executed in cold blood. Their cattle were destroyed. This incidence happened on 23/1/2018, at around 3.00 PM, in Kamari Chaiwai, Bassa local government area.
This barbaric criminal act was committed by the notorious Irigwe Militia group, who are said to be operating with impunity in Plateau State. No media house reported this senseless destruction of human lives and property.
Because a Fulani Herdsman’s life no longer matters, the state government won’t do anything about it and the hypocritical media won’t report these kinds of incidences either, until the Fulanis mobilise resources to take revenge!
Enough is enough of senseless killings of innocent people with impunity! For the avoidance of doubt, we at CUPS are not taking sides. We are just being the voice of the voiceless!
May God save Nigeria and Nigerians. Amen.
