Nobody Should Attack Malian Herders In Sokoto – Miyetti Allah by ugo4u: 7:21pm On Dec 03
Jesusegun Alagbe

The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore has warned security agencies and civilians against attacking Malian herders grazing their cattle in Gudu and Tangaza Local Government Areas of Sokoto State.

The social media had been filled with reports of the invasion of Gudu and Tangaza in Sokoto State by some bandits on Friday.

But the state police command had debunked the claim, saying the invaders were not bandits, but herdsmen from Mali “who reside in a forest in Niger Republic, sharing a border with Gudu and Tangaza Local Government Areas of the state.”

Speaking with our correspondent on Monday, the Secretary-General of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Mr Alhassan Saleh, said the Malian herders’ presence in the country was nothing to worry about, as they were only grazing their cattle, a tradition he said they had been performing annually for the past 100 years.

“Those people are not bandits; they are covered by the ECOWAS Protocol on Trans Human Movement to move across borders to graze their cattle. They have been doing that for over 100 years. They come during the dry season and leave later,” he said.

The said protocol allows ECOWAS member countries’ citizens to have the right to enter, reside and establish in the territory of member countries.

Article 3 of the protocol, however, states that any ECOWAS citizen who wishes to enter the territory of any other member country shall be required to possess a valid travel document and international health certificate.

Saleh said the government and security agencies ought to sensitise Nigerians on the protocol in order to avert any trouble.

He said, “It’s because we are so sensitive nowadays that anytime we see a large number of cows, we panic. I blame the government and security agencies for this. They ought to enlighten the people on the ECOWAS Protocol for better understanding.

“Those foreign herders are not bandits and I hope we will not attack them and then invite trouble. Nobody should attack them.

“Ideally, the Customs and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, among other security agencies, should issue Trans Human Certificates to the foreign herders.”

Saleh said the security agencies ought to have collected important data, such as the number of herders coming into the country; the number of cattle they are bringing into the country; the health of the cows so as to know which one is diseased; how long the herders will stay here with their cattle; and when they will leave so that they can be tracked.

He said, “We are supposed to have cross-border security in place and deploy cattle tracking technology. Unfortunately, the government is not serious about livestock development in this country.

“They would promise to ranch today and cattle colony tomorrow, but nothing is happening. Maybe they want to eradicate pastoralism and give the business to capitalists.”

The Public Relations Officer of the Nigeria Police, Moshood Jimoh, had also on Saturday said there were no bandits in Sokoto State, but herders from Mali.

“They come to the same area annually from Mali to Nigerian border areas in search of water for their cattle,” he had said.

I totally agree with Miyetti Allah. Nobody should attack the Malian Herders even as they go around wielding sophisticated weapons and imposing taxes on the poor indigenes, instead we should attack the Nigerian farmers for not surrendering their ancestral lands for grazing.
Even a country as wrteched as Niger, Chad and even Togo has a comprehensive data base/ biometric data of all their citizens even with the ECOWAS agreement on free movement/trade in West Africa, they've not born you well to move around without any means of identification even if you want to buy Chewing gum across the street and you are caught by the security agents without any ID you will hate ur life, that is if you are bundled back to ur country in one piece, but reverse is the case here. And you people want to tell me that we are not all gradually running MAD in this country.

My Goodness! So Miyetti Allah are now instructing security agencies what to do and what not?

Is this a country?

First, it's illegal for them to enter a country which is not theirs. But it is normal since they are also Fulani, so you can't differentiate between the ones living in Nigeria and the one that came from other countries.

I won't be surprised if they register for a PVC and vote next year.

Even with the free movement with the ECOWAS regions, the Nigerian Authorities should register these Malian herders and ensure they have proper identification in the event that anyone of them commits crime on Nigerian soil, he can be easily traced in his country of origin.


With the rapid spread of Yellow Fever and other diseases, these Malian herders should also be vaccinated if they have not been vaccinated with proof.....

Yeah teaming up as the killers that they are.Buhari's kinsmen congregating confidently @ the eve of an election year.

Even warning the hausa-fulani core Muslim security chiefs not to carry out their constitutional responsibility. embarassed

Just as the air force have orders then not to return fire from fulanis militias in Adamawa.Lord Lugard you will never have peace.

Guess you were in Nigeria when the useless president stupidly said Gaddaffi-trained Malians, Guineans, Lybians and Chadians are the one ones violating our sovereignity and killing Nigerians

Yet he said the only thing he can do is for Nigerians
"to pray" while his "service chiefs are racking their brains" So foreigners can invade Nigeria from anywhere even if they have identification? Do you know the security implication of this your reasoning? Be reasonable for once.
