Return To The North, Northern Elders Forum Tells Fulani Herdsmen



Fulani herdsmen have been asked to return to the north.

This call was made by the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), following several quit notice being given the herdsmen to vacate both the southwest.

The NEF told the Fulani communities in southern Nigeria to return to the north if they are forcefully ejected from their host communities.

They also called on the northern governors to be ready to receive the Fulani community who would return as a result of forceful ejection.

The NEF made the call in a statement issued by the spokesman of NEF, Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed.

The statement read: “If communities in parts of the country insist that the lawful Fulani is unwelcome and has no right to their security, then the Forum will advise them to relocate to the north.

“Northern governors should move urgently to prepare to receive Fulani communities being forcefully ejected.”

Recall that the NEF on Wednesday, January 27 declared that the appointment of the new service chiefs by President Muhammadu Buhari would not automatically end the security challenges in the country.

The forum also advised the president to summon a meeting of governors and security chiefs to de-escalate the recent tension in the southwest region of the country.
