Herdsmen unleashed terror in Taraba today
While the conversation on why this killer nomadic group has not been officially declared as terrorists is in full swing, they struck again leaving more innocent Nigerians dead.
It’s been only 10 days in the new year and Fulani herdsmen have attacked and murdered close to 100 people. In Taraba today, the numbers of deaths rose to 55 following a weekend attack on Lau Local Government Area.
When we thought we had less Boko Haram attacks to worry about, this surfaces again; and sadly, President Muhammadu Buhari is a bit sympathetic towards these herdsmen because he belongs to their tribe and rears cattle.
Safe to say our President is a Fulani herdsman?
Wole Soyinka speaks and Twitter rumbles…
Weeks after a number of young people called Nobel Laureate, Wole Soyinka docile for his silence on the failures of President Buhari’s administration, the octogenarian has finally spoken up.
Soyinka has condemned the rampant Fulani herdsmen attack in strong words and it appears TwitterNG users have finally won.
“I am not aware that IPOB came anywhere close to this homicidal propensity and will to dominance before it was declared a terrorist organization." – Prof. Wole Soyinka on Fulani Herdsmen killings.

“Villages have been depopulated far wider than those outside their operational zones can conceive. They swoop on sleeping settlements, kill and strut. They glory in their seeming supremacy.” ~Prof Wole Soyinka, January 2018
