Fulani Herdsmen in the early hours of today 27th February,2018,reportedly invaded and asked over 5,000 residents of Chile Island in Mbatoho area, a suburb community in Makurdi local government area of Benue state to quit their village.
While this development may be mind bugging, a quick reality check will pronounce the opposite. The Muslim community has scored some cheap political score in Benue State with slot for head of Makurdi legislative arms zoned to the Hausa/Fulani occupants of the state capital.
Mr Terhemen,leader of the community who led others to the Deputy governor’s office said,the evaders invaded the area with dangerous weapons and simply asked them to leave the community for them to occupy without harming any body.
This is the nature of modern era Fulani movement, they have successfully done this in Plateau State having full control of a whole local government. It all started there when the state government in move to score political score started given undue regards to the Muslim community.
