The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, has lambasted the Fulani Lawmakers in the National Assembly, for failing to protect the interest of herdsmen in the country.
The Secretary-General of the group, Saleh Al-Hassan, stated this during an interview on Sunrise Daily, a Channels Television programme.
He said: “Our elites have failed to protect us. Our National Assembly members that are of Fulani background are just there collecting money. They cannot protect their people. They do not want to come out to say the truth.”
While insisting that herdsmen do not bear arms, Al-Hassan revealed that there would not be peace, until those who feel cheated are given justice.
He added that any attempt to chase them out of the country, would fail.
Al-Hassan stated: “If you have injustice in the land, you can only end up with negativity. There is nowhere you will find citizens being denied their economic rights, and then you expect that there will be peace in that kind of place. What we are saying is give us a share of the land resources in this country.”
He also disclosed that the herdsmen were the victims of the killings in Plateau and Benue States, saying that no one had been brought to book for the killings of Fulanis in Plateau State.
“So, no Berom man should begin to raise any moral justification. They are the ones that do not want peace”, he added.
