We Are Currently Training 1000 Vigilantes To Be Deployed In Every Part Of Nigeria -Myetti Allah
The National President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Bello Abdullahi Bodejo, has disclosed that the Fulani Herders organization is currently training 1000 of its members, who would be deployed at every part of the country where herdsmen are found.
Mr. Bodejo reveals this in an interview with Daily Sun, while noting that the Myetti Allah Vigilante is same as it counterpart Amotekun.
“Our vigilante is the same thing with Amotekun, but the only difference is that ours is all over the country, while Amotekun is in the Southwest” he said.
Recall that the Myetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association had earlier announced its intention to create a security outfit which will assist the Nigerian Police as well as other security outfit in fight against crimes in the country.
According to Bodejo, the move by the organisation is very much necessary as it is the only way it could provide maximum protection for its members across the nation.
During the interview with Daily Sun, Bodejo disclosed that the Vigilante will not be confined in the north only, but will be found everywhere since its members (herdsmen) are constantly in motion seeking for greener pastures.
In his Words;
“You know Fulani people are moving; moving to those arrears where there are grasses.
“Any place where there is grass, they will operate there to see how they can feed their cows.
“So everywhere they are, the vigilante is supposed to be there, that is why our vigilante will be everywhere in the country because of these cattle rustlers and they will be the ones to make peace in the event of problems between the herdsmen and farmers
“That is the reason they will be operating every part of the country. Amotekun of Southwest is just saying its own.
“If they want to do security to fight crimes, what is their problem with our own vigilante? Let them concentrate on what they are doing” He said.
He also noted that the Fulani cows are their money bags and should be guarded with all energy.
“they are moving with their money in transparent bags, which are the cows. So, the cow is like a bank to them. If you build a bank, you must fence it to secure it, but if you build a bank and you put money there without fencing the building, do you think you can go there tomorrow and meet the money? Thieves will go and steal the money by force.
“So, that is the reason Fulani are having problems of securing their cows because no one is protecting the cows (which is their money in a transparent bag). So, our vigilante group has to operate very well because of the level of insecurity in this country; cattle rustlers, kidnapping, bandits are operating inside bushes and forests” he added.
