BreakingNews 28/4/16 - What to Watch out for When the Dan-Fodians are on Rampage

[ Masterweb Reports: Ikechukwu Enyiagu reports ] - For the 'infidels' in Nigeria, it seems that, times are getting worse. When Boko Haram was at the peak of its inglorious fame, I often was moved to wonder what Nigeria truly implied for its citizens, and why those who have held to a One-Nigeria dogma were yet unable to maintain it in true practicality. Today, it's a different scenario: while Boko Haram seemed to have started, as forerunners, their terror for a separate and exclusive Islamic State within the territories of the agitators, Fulani herdsmen seem to be fighting to conquer and own the whole country-from their northward homeland through the South-West and the Middle Belt to the old Eastern Region. They tender their ‘nomadic lifestyle’ as proof that they own all. Now this reminds every deep thinker, sadly, of the Dan-Fodian ministry and the dipping of the Koran into the Atlantic Ocean. But, before we look deeper into the spirit which drives the Dan-Fodians, here are two accounts of Fulani herdsmen’s latest and unprovoked mayhem in their host communities.

Setting The Record Straight

"Let me use this medium to set the record straight:
1.Was there an attack? A resounding yes! I was in Enugu live and direct.
2. The communities where the onslaught took place are Nimbo (Nimbo Ngwoko, Ugwuijoro, Ekwuru, Ebor, Enugu Nimbo, Umuome and Ugwuachara). Mathematically, seven villages were attacked. For the avoidance of doubt, these villages are well populated by persons whose preoccupation is farming.
3. They came in Hulix. They had sophisticated weapons, and were up to 400 in Number, if not more.
4. Why did the APC media refuse reporting exactly what transpired in Enugu? The news was not in their favor as 90% of  Nigerian online media outfits is controlled by APC.
5. Is it true that more than 700 people died in that Boko Haram attack? A resounding yes, too. I saw it myself. Because I was there, I am in a better position to state what actually happened in Enugu.
6. So why did the APC media outfits (including channel TV) report that it was "only 6" persons that died from the attack? They control the media. When they could no longer contain the disturbing figures they increased the number to 21. When it was obvious that Nigerians may
discover the truth, they advanced the figures to 100.
7. Ladies and gentlemen, I reiterate: the actual numbers of persons  that were killed by Boko Haram in Enugu State is up to 800. If I am placed on oath, I wouldn't waste one nano second to repeat myself.
8. I wonder why these ‘Buharists’ are playing politics with everything.
9. This is not the first time APC is downplaying figures. Immediately APC assumed office, Boko Haram struck somewhere in the north. The figure of persons killed was about 200. But to utter surprise, Lie Muhammed said it was "only 20 persons" that were affected. Now you know." -

Madaki also revealed that, when the Igbos resident there were making attempts to run for their lives, they were ordered by the army to go back ...that ‘everything was under control.’”

 Details of Possible Complicity in the Presidency

“Apologies to the Governor of Enugu state for leaking this story. There was a call made by Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to the president, he was put on hold for over an hour and fifteen minutes. This call was made in the presence of thirteen men and four women. (On picking the call after the long wait) the president's aide told the governor that the president would get back to him. The president, through his aide and after four hours, told the Enugu state governor that the he will do something about it. My relative was among the people who witnessed this call. Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, on hearing that the police have not arrived at Uzo-Uwani, called GOC 82 division for help. He was referred to the presidency again. This time, he was put on hold for nearly two hours again, while waiting to speak to the president. Then news came in that the attack he was planning to prevent has actually taken place. Within an hour, the commissioner and GOC who referred the governor to the president had mobilized their men to stop retaliation-same way Lagos and Agatu were attacked and retaliation prevented. I want to use this medium to apologize to the governor of Enugu state for speaking out on this true event, but I would like him to demand a  probe/investigation on this massacre. I know he has learnt his lessons, but if not, then he is still a cretin we will endure for only four years. We need to know why the police commissioner and GOC needed the presidency to issue orders to them before they could protect  innocent citizens? We need to know why the police and the military sent their men to Uzo-Uwani after the attack to prevent retaliation.We need to know why a sitting governor cannot use the support of the police and the military to protect his people.” The writer continued. “My governor, I am just apologizing because l thought you did nothing at all, until I was given all these information. But as a man-an elected governor-what was your PLAN B if presidency failed to help? You ought to have used the media, which is FREE.  Able bodied men and women would have prepared to help and protect their own people." -

The Dan-Fodian Spirit Revealed

Without wasting time, let us delve into a clear picture of the Fulani spirit. According to Wikipedia, "The Fulani/Fula/Fulbe people, numbering approximately 20 million in total, are one of the most widely dispersed and culturally diverse of the peoples of Africa." It further states that an estimated 13 million Fulani are nomadic, thus making them the largest pastoral nomadic group in the world. This nomadic life proved to be an advantage when Usman Dan Fodio went with his followers into exile-motivated by his reformist ideas and increasing repression by local authorities.  After staying a while in exile, Shaihu Usman dan Fodio, born Usuman ?ii Foduye in 1754 and said to be a  religious teacher, writer, Islamic promoter and the founder of the Sokoto Caliphate, returned with a revolution to forcefully plant his beliefs and teachings-beginning from northern Nigeria through Cameroon to other countries across West Africa. A Jihad was born. From then on, the Fulani, though still maintaining their northern homeland, gradually advanced into territories fully occupied by other groups. Here, it suffices to say that, majority of those who claim to champion one rights and secessionist group or the other have simply been towing the same part for which the great Shaikh was infamous. This group of championers, warmongers and death-bringers must either take a more persuasive and democratic route or be nipped in the bud. Today, sadly, the Fulani have grown more assertive and, therefore more demanding and authoritative. It has even gone worse with a Fulani as the president of today’s Nigeria. Although Boko Haram has made its demand marks, the Fulani do not negotiate as they believe that they own anywhere and everywhere they want. 

Role of Religious Divide

The Fulani are mostly Sunni Muslims, is it then a wonder why the Shiites are killed with reckless abandon, and by those saddled with protecting them as fellow citizens? They seem to be backed by the military which, sadly, behaves more or less like them as they often run to their defense and only after they have carried out their calculated attacks with mostly sponsored military and paramilitary type of guns? Remembering that Sir Ahmadu Bello, who once berated the Igbo for their ingenuity (  ) and mobilized the North against patriotism and true nationalism, was a descendant of Uthman dan Fodio, I now think that the raison d'être of all these terrors from the becoming has been clearly defined: The attacks in Agatu-narrowing to several of such in Enugu State-is clearly unmasking a Dan-Fodian hasty, southward drive towards dipping that Koran into the ocean of blood. This time, it seems that the Koran which the Fulani use may not, after all, be the same as that used by the Shiite-wherever they picked their differences notwithstanding. While pondering on the vehemence and assertiveness of a Fulani, I recalled with a shudder the clear threats of one of Nigeria’s leaders, Nasir Ahmad El-Rufai of Kaduna State, to soldiers and civilians alike via his twitter handle, @elrufai, on June 15, 2012: "We (sic) will write this for all to read. Anyone, soldier or not that kills the Fulani, takes a loan repayable one day no matter how long it takes." How sad! My question now is: can president Buhari prove my submission a mere t
