A Fulani socio-cultural association, under the aegis of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, has called on the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr. Ibrahim Idris to investigate and arrest those behind the killing of Fulani herdsmen in Delta state.
The group also expressed dissatisfaction over the alleged non responsiveness of the Commissioner of Police in Delta state, Mohammed Ibrahim Zana and the state Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa.
While the herdsmen accused the Governor of not been proactive enough in responding to their plights; they also accused the Police Commissioner and his men of “denying the Fulanis justice.”
In the latest clash between the Fulani herdsmen and the farmers of Ossisa community in Ndokwa area of Delta state on 25th August, 2017, scores of casualties were recorded.
The herdsmen, however, claimed that the youths of the community were those who allegedly massacred their members and also killed over 60 of their cows, while raping their women in the process.
At a press briefing in Abuja on Friday, the National Publicity Secretary of the group, Malam Yusuf Musa Ardo, called on the police to ensure the killing of the herdsmen by their host communities is curbed.
Ardo said his group had received a petition from members of Alhaji Mohammed Bassa family and other Fulanis living in Delta state
