– The chairman of Njiya-Goron community in Adamawa state, Manassah Nayangom says the incessant attacks by herdsmen on the community have left the community with no option than to fight back

– Nayangom says the community has so far lost 65 people and property worth over N2 billion

– Urges the federal government to urgently summon the political will to forge a lasting solution to the menace of the Fulani herdsmen in Adamawa state

Fulani herdsmen have been blamed for carrying out attacks on communities across the country.

The Njiya-Goron community of Adamawa state is threatening to wage war with Fulani herdsmen to check continuing attacks on its people.

The chairman of the community, Manassah Nayangom in a statement in Yola on Monday, July 4 said the incessant attacks by herdsmen on the community which had claimed several lives and destroyed properties, have left the community with no option than to fight back since authorities had failed to contain the herdsmen’s attacks.

According to Premium Times, the chairman of the community, which comprised 13 villages, said the community had so far lost 65 people and property worth over N2 billion.

“The hunting and killing of our people at will by these blood suckers must stop; otherwise we have no choice than to take drastic measures to defend ourselves, for it appears the government does not care whether we are dead or alive.

“There were wanton destruction and looting of our properties worth billions of naira by vandals.

“This left us with no alternative than to run to the National Human Right Commission (NHRC) in order to enforce our fundamental human rights, as we hold strongly that the right to life is a universal gift of God that no race or tribe, no matter how strong, can lay higher claim to it as being insinuated by Fulani herdsmen,” Nayangom said.

He urged the federal government to urgently summon the political will to forge a lasting solution to the menace of the Fulani herdsmen in Adamawa state.

Meanwhile, in the wake of series of attacks in Delta state, Fulani herdsmen they have agreed to vacate Olomu Kingdom for an interim period of two weeks.

Vanguard reports that the herdsmen agreed with the decision reached with the Olomu traditional council in Ughelli south local government area of Delta state from June 25 to July 9.

The exit of the herdsmen for the period is expected to enable the kingdom work out modalities for their re-entrance in order to avoid further clashes.

This problem can only be solved when certain ethnic groups in Nigeria stop seeing themselves as the overlords, and others as slaves.
There are laws against carrying of firearms in Nigeria.
Why that law is not being enforced whenever the Fulani are involved is the open question.
