FULANI HERDSMEN ARE VICTIMS OF INJUSTICE IN SOUTHERN KADUNA, SAY FULANI YOUTHS


- Youth leader of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigerian has listed the challenges faced by the Fulani herdsmen in Southern Kaduna
- Some of the challenges he named were road blocks allegedly erected against Fulani herdsmen, injustice in educational admissions, lack of grazing infrastructure among others
- According to him, these are some of the answers to finding lasting peace in the area
 Yusuf Usman Garba, youth leader of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigerian (MACBAN), has listed conditions for lasting peace in Southern Kaduna
Garba listed this while condemning the “illegal” road blocks being allegedly used to “attack Fulani in Southern Kaduna.”
Daily Trust reports that the youth leader lamented the many road blocks in the region. According to him, the road blocks are a source of discomfort to the Fulani herdsmen
Speaking after a meeting which involved MACBAN Pastoral Resolve (PARE) and Mobgal Fulbe Development Association amongst others in Kaduna, Garba said:
“If the government can suspend a traditional ruler over the removal of streets light in a particular area, then why can’t the same government suspend a traditional ruler when illegal road blocks are mounted in his chiefdom?”
“We want the government to take disciplinary action against the district and village heads where illegal road blocks are mounted, because even though we are in full support of the peace initiative by the government, we want action to be taken to end the killings in southern Kaduna
“We are really worried about the happenings in the area because Fulani are really facing challenges. A Fulani man is not free to go about his normal business in the area for fear of being attacked and this is telling on the socio-economic well-being of the Fulani man.
“Another issue is the fact Fulani are not given admission into government institutions in southern Kaduna including College of Education, College of Nursing, the Kaduna state University (KASU) and the Kaduna Polytechnic, Agricultural Department. So, I want to call on the government to as a matter of urgency reverse the trend as it is one of the solutions to finding last peace in the area.

“The only functional grazing reserve Fulani have is the Ladugga grazing reserve; thank God another has been created in Kagarko and Fulani have started moving there, but I want to call on the government on build infrastructure in the Kagarko grazing reserve because most of the affected Fulani from southern Kaduna are moving into Kagarko grazing reserve for safety,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association has denied claims that its members are perpetrators of ongoing crisis in Southern Kaduna
The association said its members have also been victims of the crisis rocking the state
