Nyiam: Elements within military promoting trans-national Fulani colonisation

A former military officer, retired Colonel Tony Nyiam, yesterday blamed elements within the military for herdsmen’s invasion and the killing of hundreds of people in Benue, Taraba, Zamfara and other parts of the country.

He said the military was being used by elements within it to defend and promote trans-national Fulani herdsmen colonisation of high yielding grazing land of the people of the Middle Belt and the southern part of the country. Speaking to New Telegraph in an exclusive interview in Lagos, Nyiam said the main reason why the trans-national Fulani herdsmen invasion of the Middle Belt and southern part of the country’s farming communities had been succeeding was because of the help they received from some military and police officials.

He also described the statement by a former Minister of Defence, General T. Y. Danjuma that some members of the Nigerian Armed Forces were colluding with killer herdsmen on an ethnic cleansing agenda, as confirmation of Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Lawal Daura’s revelation that some of the sophisticated arms arrested from the herdsmen were traceable to military and police armouries

. He said: “I am of the view that military is being used by elements within it to defend and promote trans-national Fulani herdsmen colonisation of high yielding grazing land of the people of the Middle Belt and Southern regions of Nigeria. And all these are happening under the watch of the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari.

“The evidences to back what General T. Y. Danjuma said are the communications of Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State to the Presidency and above all, the courageous disclosure by the Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Lawal Daura; a man who as the top spy master on internal security in Nigeria, should know. “According to the DGDSS, who is himself a Fulani but of the ‘town type,’ some of the sophisticated arms arrested from the herdsmen are traceable to military and police armouries.

The foregoing account of the apparent invisibility of the herdsmen’s invasion of the Middle Belt people of Taraba, Benue, Southern Kaduna, Adamawa, Plateau and Kogi, the Hausa farmers of Zamfara and the three southern regions’ farming communities of Edo, Delta, Cross River, Ondo, Ekiti, Ogun, Oyo, Enugu states, farming communities.
