Herdsmen Killings: Benue Fires Back At Sultan Over Jihad Statement by 7Ebisco: 11:19pm On May 30, 2018
Benue State Government has reacted to the recent comment by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar lll-led Jama’atu Nasril that the herdsmen killings across Benue, Taraba and other parts of the North, were not continuation of the late Usman Danfodio’s jihad.

The Sultan, who doubles as President General of the JNI with its headquarters in Kaduna, warned against taking Nigerian Muslims for granted by denigrating the Islamic community.

Reacting, however, the state government in a statement by Tever Akase, Chief Press Secretary to Governor Samuel Ortom, insisted that JNI should rather blame Miyetti Allah over the alleged Jihad statement.

His statement below:

Another instance where the same group declared jihad on the country can be obtained in the following link: .

Governor Ortom who referred to such statements including the ones quoted above from the Fulani Nationality Movement, reiterated his call for the arrest of the leadership of the groups to prevent further killings in the state.

Governor Ortom used the programme to draw the attention of security agencies to the inflammatory statements made by the said groups vowing to wage a jihad and mobilize their members to invade Benue and resist implementation of the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law passed by the state.

The Benue State Governor has enormous respect for the leadership of Jama’atul Nasir Islam and all other Nigerian Muslims and would not have launched an attack on the religion. We reject and condemn this negative branding of the Governor by JNI.

Since assumption of office, Governor Ortom has embraced and encouraged all religious groups in the state especially the Muslim community as evident in the cordial relationship between the present administration and leadership of the Islamic faith. It is therefore strange that the headquarters of Jama’atul Nasir Islam has chosen to assault the Governor’s reputation on a matter which has verifiable evidence unconnected with him.

Governor Ortom has demonstrated statesmanship and focus in handling the secuirty challenge in the state and he appreciates the contributions of all stakeholders particularly religious leaders both Christian and Muslim towards the return of peace to the affected parts of Benue State.

This group is with a leader

This group has a patron

This maleficent group has been making derogatory statements that are retrograde.

Worst still, members of this malevolent group are committing genocidal acts by the seconds.

Yet no one has been arrested! Modified

That's an open secret. If you know, you know. Everything that will keep the Christians and in extension the Igbos down is what they make national policies. Whatever the terrorist group called miyetti Allah wants is what the federal government under Buhari does just like the witch cried at night and the baby died in the morning. Breaking up the diabolic and killing field called Nigeria is a task that must be done!!

Afonjas are the most irredeemable fools in Nigeria.

No wonder their ancestor was thrown out of heaven and landed with his head.

Jihad or no jihad, let the killings stop please. This is no time to trade blames, it is a time we all unite as a country to tackle this menace.

Be it the Sultan, who is claiming innocence and fighting for his religion, or the Benue people, whose people are dying, or the average Nigerian who lives in Kano, Aba, Ilorin or Lagos, or Buhari who is keeping quiet and letting this savages run riot, all hands must be on deck, so we bring an end to this massacre by the Fulanis.

We can't definitely continue like this, no more killings in the middle belt.

My heart is with my Benue brothers and sisters. And to the brothers especially, don't allow this people slaughter you all. Be strong!!

A word is enough for the wise!!!
