In his argument, Chief Tola Adeniyi stresses that religion has only been used as a guise. That the problem Nigeria is faced with today is nothing but the problem of clash of cultures and civilization.
Among other legs, the Fulani’s is the longest, most stretched and always seeks power; wanting others to be underdogs. This is what they have always done and wanted and why the North regresses.
When we talk about Nigeria Security, the Fulani question is a big one. It is about the wreckage of the Nigerian State. It is about this strange but familiar philosophy whose primary focus is to kill, maim, rape, and to destroy.
Even among them, only a few escaped from the bushes and gained prominence in the corridors of power without looking back to help others living in the woods.
Even though they now live in the cities and are now transformed into domestic animals, the weird traits they have grooved over time in the bush do not leave them.
Maybe it isn’t their fault, the crients initiated a one Nigeria and saw the North as the most vulnerable. Their spirit, soul and body were therefore colonised.
When Nigeria grooved, Britain handed over power to the North whom they would be able to control, advise and manage. Now the North has spread tentacles so much that power dies and resurrects with them. They are powerful, power resides in them.
Is it a crime to love?
Has the Yoruba not done well to call them brethren?
Why is violence the godliest way to reciprocate this kind of love?
NB: To address this big factor in Nigeria’s state of comatose, security should not be politicised. Insecurity must be fought as it should without fear or anxiety of principalities and powers and rulers of this world in high places.
