|Fulani People Brainwashed To Think All Of Nigeria Belongs To Them—Prof Akintoye by NwaNimo1(m): 3:16pm On May 13|
Popular Yoruba historian, Professor Banji Akintoye has explained why he is in the struggle for the actualisation of the independence of the Yoruba Nation.
Akintoye, who is the leader of Ilana Omo Oodua, the umbrella body for Yoruba self-determination groups, said his struggles for the actualisation of the Oduduwa nation was necessitated by the need to save his people from their suffering.
Akintoye, who was a senator in the Second Republic stated this in a virtual meeting with Dele Momodu's Ovation Media on Wednesday night.
He spoke of how herdsmen were not violent in years past.
He said, “The herdsmen were not violent neither were they destructive but the ones that have been sent since 2014 have been deliberately indoctrinated and empowered to go and hurt people, as servants of a philosophy that says ‘That we, Fulani, Allah has given us Nigeria and all of Nigeria and it is our duty to drive the people off their land and take the land’.
“That's what we have been having, people call them herdsmen but when I came and found people in Afenifere meetings talking endlessly about the menace, I concluded we need to find out what's happening. We researched the crisis, I wrote a paper, I think 36 pages, I went all over Nigeria trying to understand and then I went to countries in West Africa, inside and outside Nigeria.
“I spoke to Fulani folks in places like Yewa, I spoke to Fulani folks in Upper Senegal and the Gambia in West Africa. Some eminent persons among the Fulani political elites decided that the terrible situation among the Fulani was an opportunity to unleash them as warriors against the rest of Nigeria and so they were indoctrinated, heavily indoctrinated to believe that God (Allah) has given Nigeria to the Fulani and that all that the Fulani needed to do was seize the land by force and that is what we are experiencing.
“One Aliu Gwazo wrote in January 2014, 'In 1960, Allah through the British, gave us Nigeria to rule and to do with as we please. We have been doing that since 1960 and we wish to continue and if anybody tries to stop us, we shall kill, maim and destroy and turn Nigeria to the bloodiest war zone in Africa'. That is what they are doing, claiming and trying to achieve.
“I was on the delegation of those who visited Benue State Governor when the Fulani people came in large number on January 1, 2018, they wrote a letter to him, 'Mr Governor, I see that you and your people are mourning and they carry out mass burials but what is happening is a little of what is coming to you and your offence before us is that your ethnic groups in your state believe that the land they are living on is theirs because they have been on it for thousands of years but the land is not theirs, it belongs to us Fulanis and Allah has given it to us and we will take it by force we have accumulated the money and weapon for the battle. And we will continue fighting for hundreds of years if that is what it will take and we are not talking of the ethnic groups in your state alone but all over Nigeria, the Yoruba, Igbo, Kanuri and nothing can stop us and if you think the FG can protect you, you are deceiving yourselves'.
“That is what is happening; saying it is a clash between farmers and herders, is a lie, it is not truth. When I came back to Nigeria, I was away for 25 years, I never thought I would come back to Nigeria. When I came back in 2015, I found our people in the midst of all these. I went about lecturing people that Yoruba is a great nation.”
The professor also spoke on why elections should not hold in the southwest region, he said, “The more we hold elections under the 1999 constitution, the more we prolong our suffering. The Fulani marauders are telling us that they are in Southern Nigeria, Yoruba land, Igbo land, everywhere because the constitution allows that, so the more we hold elections under 1999 constitution, the more we prolong our suffering.
“I am very confident that if it comes to a referendum or some sort of voting, the Yoruba people will say in a very large majority that they don't want election in their part of Nigeria and those in the East and Middle Belt are saying the same and look at it, South and the Middle Belt account for three-quarters of the population of Nigeria so this is not the question of the minority.
“In our kind of situation, it is sensible to resort to what other nationalities have resorted to. Many nationalities that have tried to conduct their election like the Catalonians in Spain, like the Scots in Britain. We think it would be better to persuade the United Nations to come and run our referendum, the same way they did it in Sudan, I believe we can get that done.
“It is the pressure from three-quarters of the country that will put pressure on the United Nations to run it, the people running the country may not want it but the two-thirds will put such amount of pressure in the world that a lot of people will agree with them and that will amount to a vote on the United Nations that will authorise the UN to intervene. Process and procedure to expect in terms of self-determination
“We are setting up in a very strong way, the hands of some important members of this government, critically important members of the security council in this matter, we might also be going to court over some parts of the struggle all put together to create a situation where there will be no doubt that the United Nations needs to intervene.
“United Nations doesn't choose to intervene in any situation on its own, it is the situation that pressurises the UN to intervene anyway and so we are going to be using that knowledge very much.”
Speaking on how some Yoruba politicians are reportedly preparing for the 2023 elections, Akintoye said, “They are warming up and there is nothing wrong with that but they will soon discover they will hit a rock very soon.”
The historian added that the Yoruba nation must be achieved as there is no other alternative to that.
“Yoruba must have their own country in the interest of humanity so they can bring development, prosperity and development to their people again, and I believe that it is the same type of thinking among the Igbo, Middle Belt and people of the South-South. There is no considerable option that will satisfy the humanity that we are seeking to satisfy."

I used to admire the Fulani together with their cows about 20years ago, but now I detest them so much because of their killing habits and land grabbing which is being supported by Mr President.

They actually genuinely believe that the rest of the country is nothing but sacrificial lambs for them. The way they act and talk.., it's as if they solemnly believe that we are all here to take their orders. Even Buhari.., telling people in Benue to accept herdsmen or die... Whenever there's a serious pushback, the reaction from their end is consternation. . It's as if they are totally surprised that you are pushing back. You're supposed to accept it because they're the sons of gods.. This happens with religious zealots..They don't understand why you complain that the whole government is now full of fulanis.. You are supposed to understand, after all you belong to them as "decreed by the gods"....

Either Nigeria succeeds in breaking up or not, Nigeria would never remain the same again. The fulani ethnic group has succeeded in destroying the spirit of patriotism among Nigerians.
However, fulani would pay for every atrocity committed against indigenous Nigerian people under this jihadist govt, their saving grace would be in breaking up of the country especially before the terrorist president is gone.

May God Bless Prof. Adebanji Akintoye. He will be forever remembered to be the most sensible of all the elders in Nigeria within the 21st century. When a man is bold to call a spade a spade, he deserves all the respect. How can a bunch of ragtag terrorists be moving into every land confidently to rape, destroy farmlands and kill people unprovoked yet they're treated with kid gloves and those who try to resist them are hounded down by the most stupid military in history? How can that be explained in the future? All the elders in Southern Nigeria should cover their faces in shame. Let's call the terrorists their rightful name to their faces. UN has no option than to listen if the whole South and MB call them in for referendum. The longer we stay in Nigeria with these barbarians the more we prolong our suffering. Is it not obvious? Do we need a magnifying lens before it becomes clear to us?

Professor akintoye is correct to an extent, where the problem comes in is international law regarding Uti Possidetis juris and Islamic taquiya on Nigerians against present day ss/ se, during the 66/67 era, it was also used in 2015 against the same ss/ se and it worked effectively. Nigerians claim they are wiser now, but I have my doubts, a little divide and rule, subtle persuasions, laced with some taquiya and tribalism, and we will easily repeat the above mistake over and over.

I still believe in Nigeria. It will be well with us but not with the lifeless one for bringing disaster to us all. All the blood shed will be upon his head. He will answer for this in the world beyond.
|Re: Fulani People Brainwashed To Think All Of Nigeria Belongs To Them—Prof Akintoye by nedu666: 7:40pm On May 13|
What should baffle u is how southern folks pretend all his well, conspiracy of silence amongst southern folks and leaders while they are slaughtered, the hypocrisy of news media, activist, church etc. Ask yourself if fulani were another tribe going about killing will Nigerians keep quite

Illiterate, dumb and stupid fake professor.
When PDP were in power for 16 years, where was all this Fulani nonsense?
Why did the Fulani not disturb the southern based PDP power elite or power structure which controlled hundreds of billions of dollars for 16 years, if they are so powerful and think they ''own Nigeria''?
Abeg fck off. Tribalist fake professor.
Southerners held power for 16 good years and fcked up the economy, looted the treasury, and now, all of a sudden, everything is Fulani peoples' fault?
|Re: Fulani People Brainwashed To Think All Of Nigeria Belongs To Them—Prof Akintoye by princemillla(m): 9:09pm On May 13|
One thing I know for sure is 10 years is not enuf for them to take over Nigeria. Once the lifeless one is out, then the next ( if Nigeria still standing) should as a matter of urgency do something bout the one sided security appointment.
