Cleric: Fulanis not responsible for killings in Nigeria

Fulanis not responsible for killings
in Nigeria - Cleric

Sheikh Dahiru Usman Bauchi, a renowned
Islamic scholar, has declared that against
popular believe, Fulanis are not responsible
for the killings in some parts of the country.


Sheikh Bauchi who disclosed this while
speaking with newsmen Wednesday, July
18, insisted that killings have no religious
colorations.

“Fulani are not new, they are not guests in
Nigeria, they are well known as one of the
respected tribes. If they are killers, they
would have started the killings hundreds of
years back not now, the killers disguised
and hide with the intention to paint a
particular tribe black. Fulani are known to
have sticks and bow and arrow but you are
saying the killers have gun. Who gave Fulani
herdsmen gun? It’s the responsibilities of a
government to fish out the culprits and
punish them,” he said.

Going further, he added that: “If anyone
commits a crime, such person should be
identified as a criminal and made to face
the full wrath of the law. Fulani lived with
people across the world, they live peacefully,
why should they take up arms against the
people they are living together with
hundreds of years ago?”

He also said that: “The basic responsibilities
of every government is to protect life, to
protect shedding of blood, to protect
human joints, to protect families, to protect
properties and human dignity.

“The responsibilities of the citizenry is to
listen to constituted authorities, to
cooperate with them by being law abiding
in order to have sustainable peace across
the country.”

“The spate of killings going on in some
parts of the country has no religious
colorations. The killings and the
perpetrators were given a religious
coloration in order to cause confusion. We
have two dominant religions in Nigeria,
Islam and Christianity, and the two religions
do not allow anyone to shed the blood of
anybody, to kill, to take away properties or
burn the entire properties and such
dastardly act is not permissible in any
religion.”

“Since we are now in a democracy, people
should access the performance of their
respective governments. If they perform
well, they should vote for them again to
continue but if they didn’t do well, you vote
them out. They should vote people that they
believe will improve their living condition at
the expiration of their tenure and instead
of taking arms they should make the best
use of their permanent voters card to bring
the changes they desire.

“Both Islam and Christian religions respect
and protect all human lives, rights and
public dignity and will not allow anyone to
kill his fellow human beings,” he said.
