Fulani herdsmen are a criminal gang, IPOB is a terrorist organisation – Garba Shehu



Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari has said while the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) is a terrorist organization, fulani herdsmen cannot be defined as such.

He said this in an interview with Channels TV’s “Sunrise Daily.

He was asked why IPOB was speedily dealt with, while the herdsmen who have been killing farmers across the country have not been declared a terrorist organization.

Garba Shehu said the activities of IPOB were within the terrority of what a terrorist organization is, while the herdsmen are merely a criminal gang.

    Nigeria has no hope because of this kind of mindset. Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen can rape, bomb and pillage with impunity and murder entire villages for decades but they are only criminals. This is why Nigeria, as it is, cannot continue. The damage Buhari’s administration is doing in on such a grand scale, I don’t know what will save us.

      Welcome to Nigeria. These are the so-called elite. It is even hard calling him a true moslem. In the quran does Allah categorize types of rogues? Is death not death irrespective of the supposed rationale for it?

    I’m beginning to wonder if “Nigeria” would have being better than where “she” is today ,even better than the likes of “Ghana” in some areas if independence wasn’t achieved early.

    God bless Nigeria

      the problem is not about the time of independence. the problem is the nigerian people. curruption has bn made normal and the people constantly vote based on tribal lines even if they are going through hell. ghanaians are now enjoying free high school education, constant electricity, national health insurance which works etc. they got these things by holding their leaders accountable and voting massively against currupt governments. nigerians on the other hand will complain and complain and still vote for people like the man above. so no. dont expect anything new from these recycled politicians

    If mass murder, rape and burning down villages doesn’t make you a terrorist, then nothing ever will. Buhari has to go, I have never seen this level of audacious nepotism in my life.

    So the foolani herdsmen that have been destroying, killing, raping are mere criminal gangs?! A case of selective moral here shehu, don’t you think so?

    There’s something fundamentally wrong with Nigeria, not until we address this, can Nigeria ever make progress..

    And yet, we scream one Nigeria? Oh, by the way, the Fulani herdsmen have dealt their mayhem across the board. Yoruba, ibo, middle-belt, northern non muslims as well have experienced their terror.

    My people, wait small. Let us understand first to gain wisdom in applying the knowledge of what we know. In this case, we should consult the definitions of terrorism/terrorist and crime/criminal to put into perspective what this man has said before we comment

    The rest of Nigeria has emboldened you to talk down on them. The insult is to the collective not to Ndigbo who in fact will never allow you peace in Nigeria until justice is attained or everyone answers his father’s name

    Fulani Herds men go around killing other ethnic and religious groups in their lands. A separate group called Biafra is having a peaceful gathering saying they want to be away from Boko Haram and Fulani herd men. Please help me ask Garba which of the above described group is a terrorist? Daft hausa man.
