fcta_477085444It has been revealed that Fulani mercenaries from Cameroon and other parts of the country including Katsina State have volunteered to join forces with their counterparts in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, to fight native Gbagis following the recent clash between them over grazing right.

The clash, which broke out at Gwako in Gwagwalada area council left no fewer than two persons dead and others injured. About 1, 500 persons were said to have been displaced and temporarily sheltered at the permanent site of the University of Abuja after their over 10 settlements were destroyed.

The Commissioner of Police for FCT, Ade Shinaba, confirmed that the mercenaries actually made series of calls and mobilised to join forces with Fulanis in Abuja to unleash mayhem on the Gbagis. He made this known while speaking when the investigation committee looking into the conflict submitted its report to the FCT Minister, Senator Bala Mohammed.

He said, “during the series of meetings by the committee set up by the FCT Minister to look into the remote causes of the bloody clash between the Fulanis and the Gbagis, we received calls from mercenaries from Cameroon, Katsina, Edo and some northern states, who were on standby to join forces with Fulanis in FCT and start another round of war… But for the wise response of Fulani elders who told them that the administration was on top of the issue, we would have been singing another song.

“We were able to avert that mayhem amicably and we hope that both the Fulanis and Gbagis will continue to live together in peace.” The FCT Police boss also disclosed that 25 suspects have so far been arrested in connection with the crisis.
