Blame Plateau Govt For Crises – Fulani Herdsmen by oyb(m): 4:51pm On Jul 10, 2012

National Protem Secretary of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Mallam Sale Bayeri, has blamed the Plateau State Government for the persistent attacks on some villages in Plateau North.

He said the inability of the state government to initiate meaningful dialogue between the warring factions had further strained the fragile relationship in the area.

Bayeri, who spoke to our correspondent in an interview in Jos, dissociated his association from the Fulani herdsmen believed to be behind the spate of killings in Jos and other parts of the state.

He however traced the problems to the 2004, 2008 and 2010 crises in the state, when over 150 families of Fulani herdsmen were allegedly killed and their cows and property estimated at over N3bn stolen.

He claimed that the families of these victims, who took refuge in neighbouring states of Bauchi, Benue, Nasarawa, Taraba and other northern states, had been avenging the death of their kinsmen.

He said the state government had not risen to the reality of solving the problem as Bauchi, Taraba and Benue states did.

Bayeri said, “You see the problem is an old one. For a very long time, dating back to living memory, no Berom person or any other tribe on the Plateau would tell you that his parents or grandparents told them that this was the day the Fulani arrived in Plateau. This is because as far as we know, animal husbandry came into existence before farming.

“The point I am trying to make is that cattle-rearing started before farming. This part of the world has been conducive to cattle-rearing from the beginning of time.

“So the Fulani being migratory do not stay for one place for a very long time. So the Fulani man must have been here for a million years but his stay and movement is still seasonal.

“The Fulaniman has never been a land agitator at all. So the nature of his job does not allow him the luxury of owning any land anywhere. He is not like the Hausa man who came for tin mining or whatever and are trying to claim ownership of lands or agitating for political rights.

“So now because of ethnicity and religious difference, the moment there was tension in Jos in 2001, these people forgot that the Fulani have been part and parcel of them from time immemorial and they don’t share the same sentiments as the people residing in Jos that are Muslims.”

According to him, the losses were documented and presented before all commissions of inquiry, stating with the Justice Niki Tobi judicial commission of inquiry.

Beyeri said, “We lost over 300 people, all the women and children their names are there in the Niki Tobi report.

“Up till date, they give the impression that they have not done anything wrong to the Fulani and that Fulani are waking up overnight and attacking them.”

But the state government through the Chief of Staff, Mr. Gyang Pwajok, and the Special Adviser Medua, Mr. Pam Ayuba, said Bayeri was only seeking relevance because he was benefitting from the crises.

Pwajok said, “Bayeri is a conflict merchant seeking relevance and knows nothing about meaningful dialogue. His views merely confirm that, if he is properly cross examined, he knows and may have organised these attacks to justify his new-found role as Adviser to the Sultan on crisis and not peace. I am not surprised that his voice is not the voice of reason but the voice of war .

Ayuba said, “Bayeri is a very poor student of history. He has failed to see the havoc his kinsmen have continued to unleash on innocent villagers; rather his insatiable thirst for crisis will never cease since he remains the greatest beneficiary of the onslaught.”

Everything this man said is true, and believe it or not, these Fulani men will continue their atrocities unless they're dialogued with and fully compensated!
In a just setting, unlike the unjust one we have here in Nigeria, one cannot buy peace with conflict. But it seems everything is the otherway round in Nigeria!Everything this man said is true, and believe it or not, these Fulani men will continue their atrocities unless they're dialogued with and fully compensated!

Mr. Bayeri are u telling us that the people living in the states you just mentioned also killed your kinsmen and their cattle but the state government compensated you?




Bayeri said, “You see the problem is an old one. For a very long time, dating back to living memory, no Berom person or any other tribe on the Plateau would tell you that his parents or grandparents told them that this was the day the Fulani arrived in Plateau. This is because as far as we know, animal husbandry came into existence before farming.

The point I am trying to make is that cattle-rearing started before farming. This part of the world has been conducive to cattle-rearing from the beginning of time.

Mr. Bayeri, i guess the point you are trying to make in the above quoted statement is that your cattle have the right to trample on their farms [the beroms] and they shouldn't complain because you were there before them!

This Bayeri of a man is obviously culpable for the murder of these innocent women and children in this link: http://www.anglicandioceseofjos.org/dogo.html

In a sane society, the likes of Bayeri are kept in isolation in a pen awaiting his time on the electric chair!

we don't have to go back to the stone age to know what the issues are! its quite simple; one has cattle,the other farms. the one with cattle prefers his cattle to feed on the other's farm produce even though nigeria has vast space of unused land!

Fulanis are everywhere in the world, and they are seriousely creating problems. Niger, Sudan, Libia, afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Chad and the rest of the counteries you know they have the triate.
They are born with it, it is encoded in their GEN, it runs in their blood and they will die with it.
Re: Blame Plateau Govt For Crises – Fulani Herdsmen by Samxiulee: 6:28pm On Jul 10, 2012
I really don't know where this man got his his_story from,from all studies,man started with hunting and gathering.they hunt the animals and they gather crops not breeding animals,before wild dogs and bisons(wild cow) where domesticated man was already tilting the earth to put the grain back in and after the rains he will come back and they will be there.It is a well known fact that farming came before we started breeding animals,the fulanis are a major problem to the entire Nigerian people,remember Usthman Dan fodio,and the way he wage war against the Hausas in the name of religion,the same thing happened in ilorin in the time of Afonja,nomads are very common the world over but the way our people are going about their business raring cattle should be regulated to avoid this kind of conflicts among people.I con mend the cross river state government for repatriating the herdsmen soon as they were sighted in the north of the state,because if there should be conflict now,this same man will say, they av being bringing down their cattle to the Atlantic to drink water from the Sahara so they own the whole of the country.

If the Fulanis own the land and are as brave as you are trying to portray them to be, why do they always sneak in at nights to perpetrate their evil? Why can't they come out during the day and fight for what they feel is theirs? Fact is your only chance against the beroms in berom land is your "sneak and kill" tactics. Once that has been found out, you'll have no other choice than to come out and fight. Then we'll know who owns the land.

Babangida's decision to create a local government for the hausa/fulani in plateau added to the problem facing that place.Jos crisis is more of a land/indigeneship crisis than a religious crisis.Hausas are bent on establishing an extention of their emirate in the north central and plateau seems to be a better epicenter for that agenda. I dont see the killing and counter-killing stopping anytime soon.

I don't know why uninformed or just mischievous people want to always distort facts. Babagida's government ( and a southerner was his vice and another southerner his SGF/ Head of Service when this happened) created not one and not two LGAs in the country but 774 LGAs. Most of the bigger cities like lagos, Ibadan , kano , Portharcourt , Benin as well as Jos and others had the fortune of having more than one urban LGA. Jos had Jos south and Jos north with Riyom and Barkin Ladi as borderline LGAs covering some part of the Metropolis. Majority of hausas happen to live in Jos North but they also reside in the other LGAs. There are of course all other communities as well in Jos North. So how is this interpreted as creating an LGA for Hausa' s out of the 774 LGAs in the country? Sabongari LGA in Zaria was created at the same time by the same government , so was it created for the Southern tribes of Nigeria just because the majority of them live there? The same applies to Sabongari LGA in Kano. You guys claim education, but it does not show at all.
