This is why history must be taught in our schools. Those who
neglect History are bound to repeat the mistakes of the past.
Please read below and learn. BEWARNED!!!!!!!
The Gross influx of Fulani herdsmen presently and now calls for
the sharing of this history.
The story is told of how King Yunfa, the Hausa Sarki in Gobir (now
called Sokoto) hosted a Fulani immigrant called Usman Dan
Fodiyo and his group in February 1804, as a result of this and since
1808 the whole of the northern region lost its kingdoms and were
replaced by Fulani emirates.
King Yunfa is said to have been killed in 1808 and the Fulani
warrior (Usman Dan Fodiyo) established Sokoto caliphate, making
himself Sultan.
Gradually, other Hausa kingdoms were pillaged and taken over by
the Fulani emirs. The ethnic groups in the core north were the first
victims of Fulani imperialism, a venture that occurred because the
people were given access to grazing land as a result of the
hospitality of the hosts.
They however failed to overrun the Bornu and Jukun kingdoms , so
the Shehu of Bornu and Aku Uka remains paramount till today!
The Afonja dynasty compromised by allowing a Fulani warrior
known as Janta Alimi to settle in Ilorin, the Fulani guerrillas killed
Afonja in 1824
And Ilorin, a Yoruba town under the Oyo empire, fell into Fulani
hands, becoming an emirate under Sokoto caliphate till today!
Even the attempts of the O’odua People’s Congress (OPC) to revert
to status quo ante and crown an Onilorin of Ilorin became an
exercise in futility.
The Yoruba warriors got wise and defeated the Fulani jihadists in
Osogbo in 1840, if this didn’t happen there would most likely have
been Fulani “emirs” as rulers in Oyo Alaafin, Ibadan, Owo, Osogbo,
Ede, Ado, and Igede Ekiti today!
If the Bini Kingdom did not fight and repel the jihadists, they would
have penetrated the Edo/Delta region beyond the present day Edo
North Senatorial District which gave in and allowed the jihadists to
overrun & islamize them.
Along with some ignorant folk most of them are now angling for
grazing areas and a corridor through the entire federation. These
grazing areas will in future become Fulani settlements, later
communities and finally local government areas with elected
If you think I am being alarmist look towards the once beautiful
and serene Middle Belt state of Plateau.
The exact same thing happened in Jos.
Therefore, it will not be farfetched to conclude that the Fulani
herdsmen are pawns in an agenda to overrun all towns in Nigeria!
So that we will have emirs in Owerri, Enugu, Benin, Agatu,Wukari,
Abeokuta and other towns where FG creates “grazing reserves” for
Fulani herdsmen!
If Yunfa didn’t accommodate Fodio and his warlike immigrants
from Futatoro, Hausa sarkis would be ruling today in the north!
And if Afonja didn’t conspire with Alimi, a Yoruba kingdom would
not have been ruled by Alimi’s offspring till today!
It is a subtle continuation of the 1804 Fulani jihad by the fully-
armed and protected Fulani herdsmen with an age-old agenda to
overrun and Islamize the whole of Nigeria very quickly.
I will end this with what someone rightly said- “The grazing bill is
not an attempt to solve the problem, it’s a subterfuge to progress
the agenda”
It’s an age-old political strategy really- ..create a problem, come
up with a “solution” that advances the cause, and then give it a
legal backing.
