President of Fulani socio-cultural association, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Bello Abdullahi Bodejo, has slammed Nigerians tagging Fulani herdsmen as criminals.
According to him, herdsmen are being seen as criminals because of some politicians and enemies of the Fulani who are all about blackmailing the ethnic nationality and cause unnecessary confusion.
According to Bodejo, all forms of criminal activities, such as kidnapping, armed robbery, shown on social media, to be perpetrated by the herdsmen are all lies.
Bodejo went on to say that many take photos from accident scenes and then go on to claim herdsmen caused it.
The Miyetti Allah leader went on to drag northern governments for “being insensitive” to the plight of Fulani herdsmen despite their contribution to the economy.
He further stated that although he agrees that cattle-rearing is a personal business, the governments, however, have to look for ways to make business easy for the herdsmen.
