We Brought In Fulani Militias From Mali, Sierra Leone, Senegal, Others To Win 2015 Election — Kawu Baraje

Abubakar Kawu Baraje has traced the origin of the current insecurity in the country to the influx of Fulani from neighboring countries like Sierra Leone, Mali, Senegal, Niger and Chad brought into the country for election purposes in 2015.

He said this in Ilorin as part of activities to mark his 70th birthday anniversary.

He also backed self-help initiatives of the south west governors, stating that re­sponses of Sunday Igboho to the herdsman menace were necessary because the Federal Government failed in its prin­cipal responsibility to secure life and property.

On the recent moves by some ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) governors to woo former president, Good­luck Jonathan, Baraje said that the ruling party was only wast­ing its time.

According to the former PDP chairman, who also once served as the party’s national secretary, chairman of the breakaway faction of PDP that formed the nucleus of the current ruling party, the Fulani men causing havoc in the country are not aboriginal to Nigeria.

“We are not asking the right question on how the same Fu­lani we have been living with suddenly turned out a menace.

“We also must ask how they had access to their guns,” the ex-party chairman asked.

Baraje stated the Fulani men wreaking havoc in the country are not the Nigerian Fulani.

“The security agencies have not been open about the nature of the problem.

“They have made arrests. Why haven’t they told the pub­lic who the terrorists are,” asked Baraje.

According to him, the Fu­lani causing security problems in the country were brought in to help facilitate victory in the 2015 election.

“After the election, the Fu­lani have refused to leave. I and other like minds wrote and warned those we started APC with that this was going to hap­pen but nobody listened,” he explained.

  1. Then are they not supposed to be arrested by now, I mean those that brought criminals in our country just for them to win election, someone like that don’t deserve to be a leather, how I wish Nigeria can be sincere and do the needful right now

  2. I think, Baraje is lying. There is no way you can bring alien fulanis from foreign countries en masse without their governments being involved. Then, Baraje did not tell us whether these fulanis were brought to vote, which is impossible because they needed voter’ s cards which they could not get at that particular time. Where were they accommodated? Anyway, the non-Nigerian fulanis have a fulani dialect different from the one spoken in Nigeria. You can easily detect them among Nigerian fulanis. I think Kawu Baraje is trying to accuse the PDP to have imported fulanis from these Faraway Countries in order to destabilise APC government. But, the problem troubling us is this. How come PDP new that they were going to be defeated while they were controlling government?
