‘Fulani People Are Being Cheated Despite Providing Meat and Milk For Nigeria’
By: in NEWS

Hussaini Salisu, spokesman for the Kaduna State chapter of the Livestock Breeders Association of Nigeria (LIBAN), has stated that blaming foreign Fulani herdsmen for the farmer-herder conflict in Nigeria may incite Fulani in neighboring countries to launch attacks on Nigeria.

Salisu, a Fulani rice farmer and herder, claimed that insecurity, particularly kidnapping and banditry, is threatening the livelihoods of farmers and cattle rearers alike.

In an interview with Sun, he said that everyone had labeled herdsmen as bandits and kidnappers, and that the herders, too, needed to be protected.

He bemoaned that Fulani people had also been duped, citing an example of how all of his cows had been rustled and how difficult it had become for him to go to the farm.

Salisu also claimed that despite their desire to live in peace with everyone, Fulani people are the most hated people in Nigeria.

”If you continue to talk about Fulani this way, they will not have peace and if they don’t have peace, you cannot have peace yourself,” he said.

Salisu holds the traditional title of Dallatun Laduga in Kachia Local Government Area of Kaduna State.

He said,

”I am the Dallatun of Laduga in Kachia Local Government Area of Kaduna State. I am a rice farmer.

My parents live in the bush. We farm and rear cattle. We have farmers and cattle rearers whose occupations are being threatened by insecurity, particularly kidnapping and banditry.

“And the only way out of this insecurity is for the government to be realistic and non-partial in ensuring that peace is restored. Fulani people have been threatened by insecurity and their cows rustled over the years.

“Now, the government is trying to protect the farmers so that they can work on their farms without fear of being kidnapped.

But nobody is talking about protecting the Fulani herdsmen who are rearing cows. They need to be protected too.

”We Fulani have been cheated, myself in particular, all my cows have been rustled, and I cannot also go to the farm.

And somebody will say there will be peace? I know many people will say Fulani are the bandits, kidnappers, this is how they have been frustrated.

If you continue to talk about Fulani this way, they will not have peace and if they don’t have peace, you cannot have peace yourself.”

Speaking on the implications of insecurity on farming in Nigeria, Salisu noted that food scarcity will continue.
