The circle that we all as Nigerians, are familiar with, seems to have come right round again. This time, not as Boko Haram; but as armed Fulani herdsmen,which was the same way the Boko Haram guys started.
The same way that this Boko Haram guys started was ignored and underestimated until they made it known. Taking over a forest,rejecting the western culture for no just cause, then attacking people who are using the road, and then destroying lives and property, and thengoing against the government and his bombing up places. This is that same pattern.
Now, that another one is happening in Ondo at its infancy stage, and with all the news and fuss being made for this issue following the high number of people who have fallen victim of these armed Fulani herdsmen along the Ondo-Ore highway, the sane ignorance is still beig served.
while taking up a forest reserve that many surviving victims have described as a very established camp of kidnapping, and will only grown from there.
The governors of the South West themselves, have been abnormally quiet to this news, which means that they have a thing for this kidnapping cult group. Some people who have had to pay millions as ransom tk regain their freedom, have boldly said that the camp was too organised not to have a very influential person running it.
A person who could be in the government or a person who is wealthy and influential. A person who all these millions of naira in ransom were being remitted to. They said they have even heard some of the so called Fulani herdsmen spoke Yoruba, meaning that there is a very high possibility that they are Yoruba men who disguise themselves as Fulani men.
This equally means that a highly influential Yoruba man who is highly aware of the dealings in that Ondo forest reserve, has carefully organised this kidnap pin Camp, turning it into a money drilling well.
While the road users are crying foul and losing their lives, someone in the South West is making millions of naira on a daily basis.
The worse part of this is, is that they have informants in every sector of life. They are in the form of drivers, relatives, friends, workers and colleagues, telling them when a person is coming in from diaspora and how they plan to move.
The fact that the law makers and the law enforcement in that region of the country are quietly going about their routine and acting like all is well, is very worrisome. There is more to this issue than just Fulani herdsmen taking over a land. The Yorubas or a very huge chunk of them, have plotted this rubbish.
The other time when the Vice president said that this was a false alarm, and that it was a mimicking of the book Haram, you gain attention from the government just like the Boko Haram sect has.
But now that the child of an influential man has been killed, the Vice president is promising to station lawenforcement. Don’t ever put your life on the line for this country’s leader, because no matter the religion and region, politics makes all of them act alike.
Nigerians protect yourself. And take care.
