Fulani can never be indigenous to Eastern Nigeria. Here are the reasons

By: dayan (M) |Time : June 23, 2019, 02:50:54 AM

It is a given fact that the ethnic nationalities of Eastern Nigeria, are old African ethnics that have been in their lands for thousands of years. Though the ethnic groups are, from west to East: Urhobo, Isoko, Ijaw, Itshekiri, Ikwere/Igbo, Ogoni, Ibibio, Annang, Efik and others; they are all united or related by culture, values, and in some cases religion.

The region is about 90% Christian, and 10% African religion. Most of the groups have intermarried for thousands and hundreds of years such that it can be difficult to separate them. The most common values shared by all the ethnic groups in this region is the values of hard work and personal achievement.
The people therefore love education and self development. Also, the most significant inter-ethnic relational fact among these ethnic groups is that there has never been any war between these groups. Apart from the short-lived skirmishes in Warri between the Ijaw and Itshekiri of Delta state, there has been peace between all the eastern ethnics for centuries.

The Fulani, on the other hand, a Nilotic group, were anthropologically foreign to the “Niger Area” that became Nigeria before the Fulani Jihad of 1804 -1808. Ever since the establishment of the Sokoto Caliphate which stopped at Ilorin and Benue, the Fulani have been scheming to extend their rule to the coasts of Nigeria.


All their previous efforts using the Nigerian political system have failed, and will likely continue to fail because the peoples of Eastern Nigeria are culturally cohesive and have deep sociological, cultural, traditional and religious belief system that is opposite to Fulani cultural and religious values.

For example, an Igbo trader who has stayed in Fulani dominated states like Kastina for decades, would not dare scheme to forcefully take land in the host state. The Igbo and others from the east always respect the cultural and religious values of their hosts, and bring only development that the host allows.
 
The Fulani on the other hand schemes constantly to subdue and annex host lands that they eventually change the names of the areas for permanent seizure.

The peoples of Eastern Nigeria have autonomous communities whose traditional leaders are merely ceremonial heads and custodians of the local traditions. They do not have religious or political roles, and are never accorded religious reverence. The Fulani on the other hand have emirs who double as political and religious leaders. The emir is religiously mandated to promote and advance the course of Islam wherever they exist.

Finally, the peoples of Eastern Nigeria believe in reciprocity. The Igbo say “obialu be onye abiagbuna ya, o nako, mkpumkpu apunaya na azu” - the visitor must not “visit” death on his host, and when he departs he should also not develop a hunchback. Translated properly this proverb means that the visitor should not harm his or her host, and the host is also morally obligated to not harm the guest.

The Fulani believes in something opposite to this.

The proof is that the Fulani first spied on their hosts, the Hausas, prior to the launching of the Jihad of 1804, and when they conquered the Hausas, they destroyed the Hausa kingdoms and imposed theirs. They also changed names of towns and imposed Fulani rulers who continue to rule till today; meaning that they took over Hausa lands for ever.

Having gone through the basic historical and sociological exercise of comparing the peoples of Eastern Nigeria (or Biafra) with the Fulani, it becomes clear that the Fulani can never fit into the East. Not in a million years.
So, either the Fulani changes their culture of constantly scheming to subdue and capture host lands, or they will eventually attract a war with the peoples of Eastern Nigeria; this time a united East.

Unfortunately for the Fulani, the peoples of the region are historically warriors who fought the Europeans far longer than the Fulani ever did. The Igbo, for example, fought the British for almost 30-something years before they temporarily stopped and continued that fight through the struggle for independence which was led by an Igbo son Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe. The fight yielded result in the Nigerian independence of 1960. The Igbo still fought against Nigeria just 7 short years after independence when they figured that the Fulani was still scheming to continue with their jihadist agenda.
Unfortunately for the Igbo, at the time, the rest of the other ethnic groups in Nigeria and even the East did not understand what the Igbo foresaw, and ended up ganging against the Igbo.

The situation has changed in major ways, because now the East is in unity. Secondly, the youths of Eastern Nigeria have completely lost hope and trust in the Nigerian nation and have deep seated anger boiling against those they believe have been the cause of their problems.

So, even if the governors of the east allocate land to Fulani, whether they paid or not, the youths of Eastern Nigeria would NEVER allow the Fulani to have a permanently settlement anywhere in the East because of their known history. It would be a waste of money for anybody to pay the governors for the lands because the governors don’t control the lands, the local people do. The buyer will eventually face the anger of about 20 -40 million youths of Eastern Nigeria, some of who would be armed.

So, to anybody scheming to buy lands with the Buhari N100 billion, facts on ground advise a Caveat Emptor.

The article is nice, the place of interest was where the Ibibio, Efik, Ijaws etc are termed Eastherners(Yoruba's were right afterall calling them Omo ibo). These fight is not only for the Eastheners, it is a fight for the whole Southern region. Nigeria used to be Southern and Northern region respectively, me thinks this fulani fight might return Nigeria to her previous status quo.

Well, the truth is that "South South" and "South East" are actually geographical South East or Eastern Nigeria in practical terms going by culture, religion, and even political orientation. The former "Midwest" comprising of current Delta and Edo were not part of the old East, but still are regarded as "Omo Ibo" in the West and "Inyamiri" in the North. However, the Nigerian politics of the last 10 years or so have firmly demonstrated that the geographical East as identified above actually share same political worldview as well.

But what finally cemented the unity of the East is the Buharian brand of politics of exclusion and hegemony which culminated in the national impunity which the Fulani herdsmen are demonstrating, up to developing the balls to directly insult Ndigbo the largest of the Eastern ethnicities, and that has infuriated the whole East.

Sizable number of online commentators expressing outrage and anger against the Fulani vigilante idea floated by Miyetti Allah, are not even Igbo, and yet they all shared in the anger. I suspect that they know that if Igbo were to be overrun by the Fulani jihadists, they themselves would not stand any chance.

So, the East is, in fact, united in the resolve to stop the Fulani advances -by all means.

As for the South West, the zone has to demonstrate its full resolve to join the other parts of Southern Nigeria in putting up a united front against this evil agenda. The East will not hope on the South West to join that effort because of how some leaders from that zone has firmly pitched their political tent with the Buhari regime.

Methinks that a mini-civil war may be fought among Yorubas themselves to forcefully shift the politics of the zone in a definite direction. The rest of the South will only stand aside and watch, waiting for when the Yoruba reaches a firm position on what they want in Nigeria.

But the Fulani are not going to be waiting; their advances continue, only that they will meet a massive push back, likely a war in the East soon, a war that will certainly not be fought in the East alone this time (according to many threats issued by some Biafran militants).

Nigeria is sitting on a massive keg of gunpowder.
It is as if God is trying to finally divide Nigeria using these Fulani hegemons.

This topic needs to be bumped because it was a prophesy that is now materializing.
