Fulani Herdsmen is the major problem of Nigeria, it is threatening our unity – TY Danjuma

Danjuma Addresses British House of Lords On Threats To Ethnic
Minorities by Fulani Herdsmen
By NewsBreakNG – September 3, 2018
On the heels of consistent herdsmen attacks, former Defense
Minister, Lt Gen Theophilus Danjuma will on Wednesday speak on
herdsmen upsurge and the impact on stability in Nigeria.
He has been invited to address the British House of Lords on how
the attacks have been affecting ethnic minorities especially in the
North.
He will be hosted by Lord Alton of Liverpool and Baroness Cox of
Queenbury.
Nigeria has been a theatre of violent clashes between armed
herdsmen and farmers leading to the deaths of no fewer than 500
persons this year alone.
NewsBreakng has learnt that Danjuma will be speaking in London
at Committee Corridor, House of Lords on Wednesday September
between 2pm and 3pm.
The former Chief of Army Staff will be joined by the Anglican
Bishop of Jos, Archbishop Ben Kwashi.
Only last week Tuesday, about 95 houses were burnt by herdsmen
while eight people including three children were killed.
The victims included a clergy man and his wife, who was killed in
her bathroom.
The Tuesday attack was the third this year.
In June, over 150 people were killed in Barkin Ladi, the Jos local
government area where the last killing took place.
International observers have put the number of deaths since the
crisis began to at least 5000 people including women and children.
Commenting the initiative, President of Middle Belt Indigenous
Peoples Congress, Mr Abukar Abuka, in a statement, said: “We see
the positive responses of Lt Gen Danjuma as a trait of effective
leadership far beyond puerile press statements associated with
many opportunistic and self serving groups. He is reaching out on
our behalf. He is talking to international communities.”
He added that: “Danjuma is not bogged down by electoral politics
but showing concern for the future of his people. That is a good
leader we cherish.”
Earlier, the former Defense Minister, in the wake of violent killings
and government’s suspected complicity had asked victims to
defend themselves, a call that practically stirred condemnation
from the Nigerian Federal authority.
