Why we struck in Agatu — Fulani herdsmen




A leader of the Fulani ethnic group has provided a detailed insight into why his people attacked the Agatu people of Benue, sacking several communities and killing hundreds.



In an exclusive interview, Saleh Bayeri, the Interim National Secretary of Gan Allah Fulani Association, rose in defence of his kinsmen, saying the February bloody conflict in Benue was a reprisal attack by his people against the Agatus who he accused of killing, in 2013, a prominent Fulani man.

Gan Allah Fulani Association is an umbrella body of Fulani associations in Nigeria.

Mr. Bayeri said the killing of the man reverberated amongst every Fulani in West Africa.

He insisted that the Agatu farmers were aggressors shedding crocodile tears, and wondered why former Senate President, David Mark, was only just realising the meaning of genocide.

Mr. Mark, a one-time military governor of Niger State, was last week Friday attacked by suspected Fulani herdsmen who ambushed his convoy in Agatu where he had gone for an on-the-spot assessment of losses of lives and properties.

In February, 10 Agatu communities were razed and hundreds, including women, children and the elderly, were reportedly massacred by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
