Gumi advises FG to treat Fulani herders as if they were Niger Delta insurgents

Sheikh Ahmad Gumi, a divisive Islamic scholar, has called on the federal government to treat Fulani herdsmen and other aggrieved groups as Niger Delta militants.

Gumi made the remark during the ‘Pastoralists and Fulbe Security Conference’ in Abuja on Wednesday.

The event themed ‘Exploring the contemporary security challenges facing pastoralists and Fulbe in Nigeria’ was jointly organised by the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) and northern consensus movement (NCM).

“The government should pay more attention to these folks since they always claim to be aggrieved,” Gumi remarked.

“I expect the government to act in the same way it acted when the Niger Delta youths vandalized the economy.

“These people are also disturbing the Nigerian agriculture which is the backbone of national economy.

“I believe the government should take a more proactive approach. They require your attention. The least they need is the ministry of nomadic affairs that will look into their affairs.”
