Plateau killing: Why land all over Nigeria belongs to Fulani – Miyetti Allah (Who are they please?)
The Chairman Alhaji Abdullahi Bodejo, has declared that land all over Nigeria belongs to the Fulani. According to him, those claiming to own land and would not release it to the government for ranching were being selfish and do not want peace in the land. He told Sun that his group was supporting the establishment of ranches 100 percent. “They are raising opposition to it because the President of the federation is a Fulani man. I don’t know the basis of the opposition, but those people who are opposed to it are enemies of the Fulani. They are trying to gang up against the Fulani because of their personal interests.
Speaking on the fact that many states were reluctant to donate land for ranches because they don’t want to regret it in the end, Bodejo declared, “The day those people were born, were they born with the land? The people who are claiming land are the ones causing the crisis in this country. If Fulani has the culture of staying in one place, do you think anybody can claim land more than Fulani?
“If you don’t know, land all over Nigeria belongs to the Fulani. But the only thing is that we don’t have business to do with the land.”
