FULANI AND THE REST OF NIGERIANS
By Elochukwu Nicholas Ohagi
For Family Writers Press
In the 1800s Utman Dan Fodio carried out one of the deadliest terror attack on the Hausa community. Something history called “Jihad”. The real owners of the land happened to be the Hausas’, whom were known as the Hausa landlords. Landlords because the Fulani migrated from North Africa, entered Senegal and then into Northern Nigeria.
Utman Dan Fodio fought a political war, a war he cunningly called religious war. He claimed that he wanted to enthrone true Islam. Many gullible Hausa people joined force with him and conquered their own people. After the war, they (Hausa who fought on the side of the Fulani) were relegated to the background. That is the power of religion. His method was very simple. He attacks one kingdom at a time. The Hausa states were too disunited to unite to fight back. When the Fulani is fighting Kano, Zamfara will think it will not get to them. This helped them into conquering all the seven Hausa states in Nigeria.
We must know that Fulani as a tribe in the 1700s were not Nigerians. They just migrated into the country, fought their host, defeated them and enslaved them. I must tell you that all the injustices the Fulani accused the Hausa landlords of, that made some Hausa people join in killing their own people, the Fulani committed ten folds. Their own reign was worse. Just as the Fulani of today accused Ex- President Goodluck Jonathan of many atrocities, made many southerners hate him, only to grab power to do worse things they accused Jonathan of doing. Like the Hausas of old, many Southerners helped the Fulani to climb to power.
Coming down into the North Central wasn’t easy. Those folks practically resisted them. It is the wish of Utman Dan Fodio to take over every part of Nigeria and end into the Atlantic Ocean. They planned to deep the Koran into that mighty water. It symbolizes one thing. To forcefully convert every body to Islam and dominate everyone.
Many people say it is not easy, but that is being myopic. The Fulani man is a very determined and patient man. He will not mind waiting for many years as to achieve his aim. The descendants for many years have been fighting to achieve the wishes of their master Dan Fodio.
The war led by Utman Dan Fodio was a barbaric one. It was an ethnic cleaning, genocide and a terror attack on Hausa people.
Today in Nigeria, the Fulani are about taking over North Central. They have captured Nigeria. Buhari made that possible. Buhari made his Fulani brothers to be in charge of all the security establishments in the country. The police, Air force, Army, Immigration, Custom, they are seated at the top, giving shield to their Fulani executioners fighting to take over Nigeria. Men like Ahmed Tinubu, Chris Ngige, Rotimi Amaechi, Rev Fr Ejike Mbaka and few others have directly and indirectly helped the Fulani into seizing power. But can they do this without conquering places like Benue and Kogi? In fact, Benue is very important for the mission of the Fulani. With Benue taken, entering Nsukka and Ebonyi will be very easy.
Cattle Colony, Grazing Reserves and Terrorism are the things the Fulani wants to use into penetrating the rest of the country. With grazing reserves or cattle colony, the Fulani has perfected their plans of becoming Indigenes of every part of Nigeria. They will with time naturize and nationalized in any part they are given land. Anambra Fulani, Bayelsa Fulani, Imo and Enugu Fulan, it will be what our future generation will be faced with. The method is, if you refuse to part with your Land, they will send the killer Fulani to your community. These killer Fulani people spares no one. They uses machete on their victims, cutting them into pieces and force you into submission. Their last killing in Benue, which took place this 2018, they killed many pregnant women, and had their babies cut to shreds.
This is happening without the Federal government doing nothing. In fact they are sending military into Benue to shoot youths protesting over the killing of their people. The military have arrested Benue state vigilante group without bringing to book even one Fulani man. I got information this morning that the military is in Bayelsa searching houses, looking for militants, scaring people, forcing youths to desert their homes. Nigeria military is doing this at a time Benue is burning. They have not find it important to go after the herdsmen responsible for the death of more than 10,000 Nigerians within a space of three years.
President Buhari’s silence is in line with the mandate given to them by their great grandfather Utman Dan Fodio. Every Northern Fulani leader always work in line with this mandate. This is the exact words of Fulani Grand Master, Utman Dan Fodio on the rest of Nigerians.
Hear him …"Allah has bestowed on me and my people the historic duty to spread the holy faith of the Prophet throughout the Caliphate and convert these pagans. If they refuse to accept Allah and his Prophet we will wash the earth, the forests, the mountains, the rivers and the streams with their pagan blood. Ours is a holy and righteous calling. We are doing the work of Allah”.
Another respected Fulani in the person of Sir Ahmadu Bello, the Saurduana of Sokoto, the Premier of the Northern region has this to say about me and you.
He said and I quote …“The new nation called Nigeria should be an estate of our great grandfather Utman Dan Fodio. We must ruthlessly prevent a change of power. We use the minorities in the North as willing tools and the south as conquered territory and never allow them to rule over us and never allow them to have control over their future”.
Mark that word “ruthlessly”. That word is the reason Boko Haram holds sway. That is the reason the conspiracy called Chibok girls took place. That word is responsible for the many bombs and deads taking place in Nigeria. That word is the reason President Buhari encourages Fulani herdsmen with his loud silence to keep on killing Nigerians. Its on top of that word that President Buhari stood to brand Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) terrorist group, why leaving out his brothers killing and wiping villages out.
To conquer Nigeria is something the Fulani have set out to do. History has proven that they are doing this not for Hausa Muslims, Yoruba Muslims or North Central Muslims but for themselves. They do not care about you, they only use religion to further their dominion. But it is
quite unfortunate that Hausa people have refused to learn from history. They have remained loyal to people that came from god knows where and had them conquered. Hausa people have accepted their new lords and masters and had remained submissive to Fulani till today.
Will Fulani conquer Benue, Kogi, Plateau and southern Kaduna? Are they heading West? Will they venture East? Will they attack Rivers, Enugu, Bayelsa, Akwa Ibom, Edo, Abia, Imo, Anambra, Delta, Cross River?
They will if we do not stand up against them now.
