An officer of the Nigerian army has described Fulani Herdsmen as being worse that Boko Haram insurgents.
He said this during a visit to traditional rulers to seek a solution on the recent herdsmen attacks in Mambila, in Taraba state.
Here is an excerpt of his comments:
“There is too much hatred, too much damage done by the Fulanis, the only people who are surving today are the ones who ran away who manage to escape and the ones that dwell within the main cities, it just tells you the plan to eliminate and to totally wipe out this people.
Even small children, two years old children are slaughtered, pregnant women killed.
There are worse that Boko Haram, Boko Haram will not slaughter children but here they are slaughtering children and pregnant women”
