The Fulani government introduced a new dimension, to thuggery as a business franchise, when they sponsored the terrorist group Boko Haram, to oust ex-President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, having succeeded the late President Umaru Musa Yar'Adua, as the Nigeria’s President. After the demise of President Umaru Musa Yaradua, and with Presidential power shifted to Southern Nigeria, Fulani's of the Arewa North not comfortable with the power-shift traveled to other African Countries dominated by Fulani Nationals, to import Fulani machineries, to fight the government of President Goodluck Jonathan and make Nigeria ungovernable for his Administration. They sponsored and deployed Fulani backed Terrorists - Boko Haram and Herdsmen from across the Sahel, in a bid to make his government ungovernable and oust him from power .This mission they successfully achieved and executed to perfection. It paved the way in 2015 when the grand patron of Boko Haram and sponsor of the Miyetti Allah’s militant wing the Fulani Herdsmen, late President Muhammadu Buhari were enthroned as Commander-In-Chief of Nigeria Armed Forces. This new Administration has paved the way for an upsurge in a relentless wave of violence across Nigeria’s geo-polity perpetrated by Fulani Terrorists.
This singular act by the Fulani Cabal at the helm of governance became the genesis of relentless attacks against Nigeria’s Security Agents/Agencies by armed group. The high rate of terrorism, banditry, insurgency and other insecurities, has spread all across Nigeria 6 geo-political Zones. Other politicians have queued behind the same pattern, to fight their Political Opponents. Biafra land known as Eastern Nigeria is no exception.
Some desperate Igbo Politicians have replicated same in Alaigbo, to fight opposition government. And politicians know this very well. The Supreme Court Governor Hope Uzodimma , and ex- Governor of Anambra State Willie Maduabuchi Obiano, have on many occasions confirmed, that based on Intelligence Reports available to them as Chief Security officers of their States, they can confirm that, UGM activities in their respective States are politically motivated, and occasioned by some aggrieved Politicians against their State governments. Both by their widely publicized Statements have exonerated the IPOB and ESN activities from UGM.
