Killer Herdsmen Are Ethnic Militants At War, Not Bandits - Sheikh Gumi by okikijamal(m): 7:51am On Feb 23
Renowned Islamic cleric, Sheik Ahmad Gumi, yesterday, insisted that the armed Fulani herdsmen are not bandits but militants fighting for ethnic survival.

The former captain in the Nigeria Defence Academy, NDA, spoke on Channels Television’s Politics Today, while reeling out his experience with the armed herders. His words: “It is a complex issue. It is an ethnic war and the solution is dialogue and teaching them Islam. To them, they are talking about an ethnic existence.”

Asked if the armed bandits are Nigerians, Gumi said: “They are Nigerians. I hate to call them bandits. They are militants fighting for ethnic survival. They want to defend themselves. If there is peace, you will not see such things as banditry, kidnapping among others.

If you are talking about victims, they have more victims on their side than others. To them, they are fighting a war of existence. If you have seen them (herdsmen), you will discover they have nothing like civilization other than the guns they are carrying.

“We are trying to talk to them to drop their guns. There are peace processes ongoing and they are ready to put down their arms. They are not killing people; they are just engaged in ethnic revenge. The Fulani herdsmen are victims of military excesses. The armed herdsmen are kidnapping to make money.”

Speaking further, he said: “When bandits go to a Fulani village, they go in groups and ransack the village just to revenge. It is a form of revenge. It is not because of criminality, it is ethnic revenge.”

When asked why it is difficult for the military intelligence to know where the bandits are, the cleric said: “The military knows where they are. When they go in and start killing, the military realize they are creating a monster. The Federal Government should go in and negotiate.”


While clarifying that the armed herdsmen are not Boko Haram insurgents, he said: “I can say categorically that they are not Boko Haram but we have to be very careful. The Boko Haram we know are internationally connected but so far, they are not Boko Haram; they have some elements of Boko Haram and they presented it to the government.”

They are citizens, they recognize the government and they are happy now that Boko Haram is not involved in their cause. We should come in now and give them the full teachings of Islam.”

Nothing but the truth. IPOB terrorist, thugs, hoodlums, Gboys, will argue otherwise you people live thousands of kilometers away and know nothing about the situation. Cho, cho cho putting mouth everywhere. Maybe you will understand this verse "Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice? . . . Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things. For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them. They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge. Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it."
Proverbs 8:1, 6-11, KJV

The survival war they have been fighting since 19 century


But they lied, they told the native Hausas it is war for Islam and they took over their land leaving them with only koran



How are they fighting for survival when they have held power since day one



with all due respect sir they are officially classified as terrorist group and I'll like you to see them as such


We have been suffering from Fulani apperthaid system, Its better we realize it today.

Fighting Ethnic survival war even in States that are not theirs. Simply put, they want to take over their host States.
This their evil plan which they have masked with many deception over the years will fail.

I pity southerners in all this. They’ve been looking for a very good way to bring all this war to south, the boko Haram, the bandits and all.

Yet you see some southerners siding with this people to kill their own people. I’ve said this severally, this is war. They just want to make sure they completely disable any southern security force so that this people can move in.

If the government cares about you people, what have stopped them from arresting this man and his boys?

Protesters are being killed and nobody’s saying anything. This is war and any southerner that thinks this government have any good plans for us is a big big f00oool!

You see how they protect their brothers while our southern brothers are busy fighting each other.
