I Was Not Ambushed By Herdsmen - Kayode Ajulo by EcoBrick: 8:39pm On Jul 22, 2019
A social critic and respected human rights lawyer, Dr. Kayode Ajulo has declared he was not stopped by Fulani herdsmen at a checkpoint.
He said he only interacted with two members of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Vigilante group around Akoko on his way to Abuja.

He said the operation of the vigilance group is known to all the security apparatus in the area.

He said his interaction with the members of the vigilante group was a voluntary undertaking as part of his profiling as a discerning leader of his community.

He said the interaction was part of his desire of curbing the menace of insecurity in Nigeria.

He urged Nigerians to sever political and ethnic sentiments from their minds on the insecurity in the country.

Ajulo, who made the clarifications in a statement in Abuja, said other security men came to corroborate the claims of the two members of the vigilante group.

His statement was titled “Synoptic account of my encounter with the Vigilante Group on the Highway.”

The lawyer said: “My attention has been drawn to the publication in print and electronic media of my encounter with some vigilantes on my way from Akure on the 21st July, 2019 which has generated a lot of controversial responses from different quarters.

“I have received calls from various well-wishers and friends of mine, locally and internationally, who out of concern, inquired whether I was hurt or injured by the vigilantes. It is pertinent to state that I am quite hale and hearty without any injury or harm.

“More so, it is important to state for the records the actual facts as regards the events that occurred that fateful, Sunday afternoon of 21st July, 2019 in order to clarify the narrative trailing the publications.

“It is quite true that I was in Akure, Ondo State from Friday, 19th July, 2019 to Sunday, 22nd July, 2019 for my mother’s investiture as the Iya-Ijo (Chief Matron) of our home Church, Christ Anglican Church, Oke-Ifira-Akoko, Ondo State.

“ On my way back to Abuja on the 22nd day of July, 2019 in the company of some security men, we saw two men at the highway around Akoko, Ondo State carrying dane guns.

“On sighting them, inquiry was made as to their duty on the highway with guns in their hands, being not uniformed men. They thereafter responded that they were members of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Vigilante group whose operation is known to all the security apparatus in the area.

“Also, they willingly showed us their identity cards which had their names and designations. Some other security men came to corroborate their claims.

“I therefore wish to debunk the account that I was stopped by Fulani Herdsmen as peddled by some persons.

“Our interaction is a voluntary undertaking as part of my profiling as a discerning leader of my community, desirous of curbing the menace of insecurity in Nigeria.”

Ajulo cautioned Nigerians against turning the insecurity in the country to political and ethnic sentiments,

He added: “In response to the controversial reactions on my encounter with these men, it suffices to state that we as Nigerians, must sever political and ethnic sentiments from our minds in the bid to nip this ubiquitous insecurity in the land in the bud.

“In my comment on the gruesome killing of Pa. Fasoranti’s daughter, and a confidant, I categorically and unapologetically hinted that we should not see the killing as inter-ethnic attack as there are reported cases of massive killings in other parts of the Country.

“Recently, about 32 persons were killed in Sokoto State, several others killed in Kaduna, Benue, Niger, Zamfara and other States by some undisclosed bandits, who to me irrespective of their ethnic background are criminal and must be treated as such.

“The naked truth is that the insecurity in Nigeria is national which must not be ignored and we must join hands with our security agencies to fight the menace.

“Thus, we should not allow ethnicity and sentiment to becloud our sense of judgment and humanity in the war against insecurity.”

He said if Nigerians, especially public commentators, were not cautious, the increasing bigotry in the country might lead to civil war.

He said: “We are at a time in our nation that pretentious and sentimental interactions no longer works otherwise this bigotry may fan into flame the embers of civil war in this country.

“It will not be out of place to ask this poser: is it due to the lackadaisical attitude of the Law enforcement agencies and disregards for the inputs and indelible contributions of our leaders, the OPC and other local vigilante groups that these Miyetti Allah groups are now manning our highways in the South West?

“This is the question that must be addressed by all stakeholders regardless of their ethnic, religious and political affiliations.

“As I thank all for their concern, may I conclude with the words of the legendry Late Justice Chukwudifu Oputa JSC (as he then was) that “when we act in unison, we will achieve the peace that we search, but when we are fighting separately, it is not coordinate and if we don’t accommodate one another, we cannot live together”.

After reading this balderdash, I am tempted to call this infamous critic a coward but I will muster the remaining strength in me left unsapped by Mama Ramotu to refrain from doing so.

Ogbeni, the moral of the story and the crux of the outrage is not in you being stopped by Fulani vigilante but in the existence of Fulani vigilante in a land outside theirs in a country that has vehemently opposed the existence of state policing and one that has championed the disarming of other vigilantes in the South.

The Yoruba community in Aberdeen do not have a vigilante, the Igbo community in Dallas do not have a special force neither do the Esans in Palermo have a police to checkmate the excesses of their kinsmen.
It is the sole responsibility of the host community to defend and protect the integrity of their sovereignty.

The existence of armed Fulani Vigilantes in Yoruba land is ludicrously absurb, downrightly insulting and completely repulsive to the senses of anyone who understands the dynamics of a very ethinically-divided country like Nigeria.

Why will they be allowed to carry guns, when the vigilante in Ogbunike were asked to submit all rifles, while the ones at Aviele use just machetes?

We must not be tempted to think this will help in unifying the country or curbing the menace of killer Fulani herdsmen. It is a subtle surrender of liberty, and a semi recolonization.

All NwaAmaikpe will advice our Yoruba leaders is;

"If Ukpaka employs his barber to be shaving his wife's pubic hair, he should not complain when his next baby looks like his barber".

1. Armed local un-uniformed rouges, who do not belong to any of the country's official security force freely carrying guns and swords in broad day light, roaming the highway freely as they want.

2. Trespassing In another people's territory. All the way from north to Ondo in south west.

3.Especially again, members of a controversial terrorist group who have been kidnapping and massacring people.


And Dr. Kayode Ajulo is trying to debunk what exactly? That it's right for northern terrorists to freely carry guns and roam South west? So this ediot who calls himself a doctor expects miyetti allah's vigilantes to arrest their fellow terrorist of same sect and brotherhood? He must be mentally unstable.
What's really wrong with South West for fvck sake? Where have we gotten all these simpletons who are polluting our tribe from? Such a pity.

The same folks who can hardly live in their villages but rush to other states and freely settle are always on the fore front in fanning discrimination and hate against other people.

In other words, he sees nothing wrong with miyeti allah vigilante in Ondo state? A terrorist organization for that matter? Are there OPC vigilantes in Kano or Sokoto? This is Pathetic! Obviously sell outs like these are the ones that will lead their own people to destruction.
Let them bury their heads in the sand. By the time fulani terrorist herders takes over the state it will be too late.
Terrorist Dan Fodio came as a friend too in 1800s, pretending to offer help to hausa kings only to become their worst nightmare overnight. Where the hausa kings today?

The question is: Are they security agency now? Or how many opc or ibo vigilante are on the same high way. Whats the business of fulani doing highway patrol in ondo state. How many vigilante exist in the north despite high spate of killings.

My dear, the government of ondo state is investigating the issue.
