Fulani Herdsman Confesses To Boko Haram Membership

Groups alleged to be Fulani herdsmen that have unleashed terror on middle belt states of Benue, Nasarawa, Taraba, including those that recently killed scores of people in Zamfara state, are Boko Haram sect members, indications have emerged.

This became known following the confessions of some arrested Fulani herdsmen that took part in the killings and burning of houses in Wukari, Taraba state, who told security forces that they took part in many Boko Haram attacks.

According to a statement signed by the Director of Defence Information, Major General Chris Olukolade; “A group of terrorists operating under the guise of herdsmen from a camp in the outskirt of Wukari have been arrested, while others died after an attack on military check point at Gindin Dorowa, a suburb of Wukari in Taraba State”.

“Other members of the group were sighted in the course of air surveillance and later trailed to their camp where they engaged the troops in a battle”.

“The terrorists were clad in the usual pattern of dress of their counterparts operating in Borno and Yobe States”.

“One of the apprehended armed men confessed that he had been fighting for the terrorist group in Borno State and was recently brought to Wukari area in furtherance of their mission”.

“Assorted arms and ammunition were recovered from them”.

“Meanwhile, the curfew imposed on Wukari and its environs is expected to be relaxed as normalcy returns to the town”.

“Troops have maintained patrol of the area while a house-to-house search for arms is ongoing”.

“In another development, troops on patrol of the Lake Chad Islands have made some arrests”.

“Among those arrested was a boat operator who ferries terrorists across the Lake Chad while another confessed to being a supplier of hard drugs to the terrorist groups in the area”.

“In the meantime, the search for the abducted students of Government Girls’ Secondary School, Chibok is also being intensified”.

  • Big lie,no soldier is on the trail of those missing girls.The parents of those girls have said it that they travelled more than 100kms on motorcycle and never saw any search party by troops to find their children.

    • Why do you talk like this? Some of us who have been following up can authoritatively confirmed to you that our Nigerian Army are in the Forest Live in search of the abducted girls. However ,the army had already advised the Parent’s to be patient and not bother themselves in going to the forest hence they are on top of the situation to rescuing the girls.How do you expect the Army to carry along the parents, protect them , protect themselves,rescue and protect the abducted girls if the need arises. Carrying along the parents could be a huge distraction to the Army. Pls let give credit to the Army.

  • The parents did not ask for the soldiers’ assistance. rather went on to search for their daughters in which process they happen not to come across any soldier in the bush. after fake claim that the soldiers are in search of … what a shameful & unreliable govt.

  • The truth is this! A religious war is loooming in the nothern part of Nigeria, it is very obvious that the so called fulani herdsmen er arms of boko haram, but our leaders refused to say the truth, its a communal clash that’s all they can say, I am not surprise with the emergence of terrorist and insurgency in the north, most uneducated northern muslims er extrimist, all this senseless killing has been going on in the north for decades, without the northern prominent and powerful Islamic Clerics doing anything about it, so many nothern Muslims believes in Jihad!! For decades the nothern muslim kill at will in the name of Jihad, all that sensless acts in the north gave birth to Boko haram!!!
