- Former senator Junaid Mohammed has reacted to a statement credited to Miyetti Allah group
- The group had said that Nigeria belongs to the Fulanis
- Mohammed, however, condemned the leader of the group, Bello Bodejo, for the statement
A northern leader and second republic senator, Junaid Mohammed, has lambasted the national president of the Miyetti Allah Kautal H.ore, Bello Abdullahi Bodejo, over his statement about Nigeria.
Vanguard reports that Mohammed described Bodejo's statement as reckless and a call for anarchy and an anti-democratic process.
Legit.ng gathered that the Bodejo's group had at the weekend said that it didn't need anybody’s permission to occupy any land in any part of the country among others.
Reacting to Bodejo's statement, Mohammed distanced himself from the group while describing the organisation as dangerous and anti-democratic.
He added that they want to decide political power and they don’t want to leave their traditional titles in bogus gown and turbans to come into power, saying that they would rather use some dubious faceless organisations through which they want to exercise political powers.
He said: “I am a Fulani man but I don’t know him and he cannot speak for any Fulani man dead or alive. Because that man or whoever he is cannot claim to speak on my behalf.
“And frankly speaking, the Miyetti Allah’s of today, I don’t know how it started but the ones I see with their activities and statements is a very dangerous organisation, they are anti-democratic.
"And that is undemocratic. So he is talking nonsense. And I don’t know whether he is a Nigerian or if he is not a Nigerian.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Bodejo said the Fulani race would continue to rule the country forever.
It was reported that he noted the Fulani race produced Nigeria and there is no place where people would try to drive them away.
In another report, Yakubu Bello, a former chairman of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), Oyo state chapter, lamented the loss of about N5 billion by the association due to Covid-19 crisis.
Bello made this known while fielding questions from journalists in the Oke-On axis of the state on Tuesday, May 12, saying the pandemic has wreaked havoc on the cattle-rearing business.
Yakubu, however, disclosed that the herdsmen belonging to the association have been warned against violation of inter-state movement pending the time government will lift the ban.
