Fulani Socio-Cultural Organization, Miyetti Allah Kauta-Hore, has accused politicians of being behind the labelling of Fulani herders, as criminals.
The organization’s President, Alhaji Bello Badejo, addressing newsmen in Bauchi, accuses them of instigating the allegations of criminal activities, including armed robbery and kidnapping against Fulani herders.
He says, the allegations are being instigated to cause disaffection against Fulani’s by other ethnic groups, and to destabilize Nigeria.
Badejo explains that even the age long farmers-herders clashes that were in the past resolved through traditional means, are now being used by politicians to cause confusion in the country.
He asks the Federal Government to assist in reclaiming grazing reserves and cattle routes now taken over by new roads across the country.
