A northern group, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore has been fingered as a politcal group created for political purposes by a prominent northern politician, Dr. Junaid Mohammed.
The elder statesman and Second Republic lawmaker while accusing President Muhammadu Buhari of creating the controversial group, lambasted its members for claiming that Fulanis own all lands in Nigeria.
He made the accusation while reacting, in an interview with Daily Independent, to recent controversies sparked by the leadership of the organisation led by Bello Abdullahi Bodejo, the National President.
Junaid Mohammed said: “You can see that the whole thing is nothing but politics.
“Miyetti Allah was created by the likes of Buhari himself, late Shehu Yar’Adua, and others.
While condemning the order by Governor Akeredolu, Junaid said while it was true that there were some bad elements who were perpetrating crimes, the governor should identify them and charge them to court rather than issue a blanket statement asking all herdsmen on legal duty to leave.
“If anything happens, you hear people screaming, ‘it is Fulani herdsmen’.
