Miyetti Allah opens up on alleged agenda to seize South-East, South-West

Alhassan Saleh, the National Secretary of the Fulani socio-cultural group, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, also known as Miyetti Allah, has described as “propaganda” reports that Fulani indigenes, mostly herders, are slowly turning occupied areas in the Southern region into a community without the authorisation of the traditional rulers.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Saleh lamented “blatant lies” against Fulani people.

Asked in a recent interview with Punch about the allegations of encroachment of farmland by herders in Nigeria’s South-West and South-East regions, Saleh replied: “Forget those people, it is just propaganda.

“After they kill innocent persons they use those kinds of news to cover it. What land is there in the South-East for herders to grab?

“In the North, where there is land, where have herders grabbed any land?

“Herders are just opportunistic users of land resources; they don’t grab any land anywhere, not only in Nigeria.

“All those are blatant lies. If they are trying to do that to cover up their criminal activities carried out on our people, we are documenting everything and I know the world is watching them.”
