NIGERIA Becoming Afghanistan and Somalia or Worse?  —  by Paul I. Adujie Esq.

Where Are Political “Leaders” ?

I watched with deep sorrow the jarring images as I listened to the pained voice in the audio which accompanied most recent episode of marauding Castle Herdmen in Nigeria Cattle owners and handlers allow their cattle to damage crops, farms and sundry properties of persons whose singular offense is their mere existence of their own lands upon which the cattle trespass, inade, damage and destroy Farms, crops and other properties upon such lands, are of occupiers of such land.

Trespass, invasion and harm and damage thereon, must attract compensation A farmer and owner of crops is not allowed to hijack and slaughter cattle belonging to the herdsmen or the boss or principal, in a manner which is inconsistent with the interests, title, ownership and possession of owner of cattle Similarly, the cattle herders and or owners must not trespass, invade, damage, destroy and pulverise farms, crops and properties therein The property rights of every citizen, are fundamental right.

The taking or expropriation of any citizen’s property rights with food Proper Due Ptocess and The Rule of Law, is a flirtation with Lawlessness and anarchy! A trespasser must pay compensations to victims of such trespass and pay assessed compensation to loss occassioned or caused to property interests of the victim of such wanton trespass and damage No responsible government, agents and agency of government may aid, abet, facilitate trespass or worse, protect the intruder at expense of occupier of land who is also the victim. Of the trespass and interests in the properties which are damaged by the unlawful entry of the trespasser Nigeria law enforcement and security agencies must be objective, even handed be transparent arbiters in their interactions and intersection with and between herders and farmers All citizens are equal and all farmers are equal, herders and crop farmers are different angles of the same food chain of the Nigerian efforts at optimal maintenance our national physical and stomach infrastructure for Nigeria’s common and public good.

All Nigerians and all levels of governments must wake up and promptly address these issues urgently, and immediately, lest Nigeria become another Afghanistan and Somalia or even worse?

Huh….!
Nigeria is not on the path to Afghanistan-like status because of Fulani cattle owners.

A true cattle rearer has no time to be a criminal. And he has no time to worry about a biased and bigoted media that points every dirty finger at him.

The Fulani is guilty of revenge when his family and cattle are murdered and stolen without the world raising a finger!!

He will never forgive those who take from.

The crops destroyed by cattle in Nigeria is so inconsequential that the Fulani ability to pay for it should never be in doubt, or substituted for his life.

The whole premise of your argument is wrong Sir.

Nigerian Media has no integrity when it comes to publishing and/or editorializing about the Fulani.

The bases for Fulani violence has been identified and now those wishing to sustain the violence are the activists who attack him (first) in cold blood.
