I’m the chief of Uthman Danfodio dynasty; I’ve by no means seen whereby the hundred books that Uthman Danfodio mentioned Nigeria belongs to the Fulani. What he wrote was the function of Islam in management, governance and so on. He by no means talked about of conquering any explicit land or declare possession of any territory. Folks make feedback that Jihad is to Islamise each nation, however I mentioned no. Danfodio by no means got here to Islamise any nation, he preaches towards dangerous authorities. That faux write up was by those that don’t need peace on this nation and we’ve got denounced that. I’m the nationwide patron of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Affiliation (MACBAN). It has been in existence for 44 years. There are too different group that I do know, however others I don’t know. Please confirm from us earlier than you set blames on us. Muhammadu S’aad Abubakar, the sultan of Sokoto, February 2020.
I commend his Eminence the Sultan of Sokoto for making an attempt to do harm management and douse the strain that was generated within the aftermath of the explosive assertion by the Fulani Nationals Assertion (FUNAM).

Nevertheless, I respectfully disagree with him on this assertion that this extremely esteemed ancestor and forefathers, Uthman Danfodio “by no means conquered or declare possession of any land” or that “he didn’t come to Islamise any nation”. I additionally beg to vary with him on his tacit implication that Miyetti Allah, a company that may finest be described because the biblical and modern-day “troublers of our collective peace” are respectable and peace-loving.
I believed that given what we’ve got suffered within the palms of the native Janjaweed referred to as the Fulani herdsmen and murderous terrorist militates who’ve come underneath their protecting umbrella over the past 5 years, the other is definitely the case. Allow me to give attention to Uthman Danfodio on this contribution and depart the insidious actions and sinister agenda of Miyetti Allah for one more day. The details are as follows.

In 1804 one of the vital savage and bestial wars and bloody jihads in African historical past was waged towards the Hausa Habe kingdom and other people of the areas that later grew to become referred to as Northern Nigeria by Sheik Uthman Danfodio. He was primarily an Islamic Scholar and the religious and army chief of the Fulani individuals who got here of their a whole lot of hundreds from Futa Jalon and Futa Joro in modern-day Guinea to northern Nigeria and set up Africa’s strongest and ruthless Islamic Caliphate. For anybody, irrespective of how respectful or extremely positioned, to recommend that Danfodio was only a scholar and trainer that solely wrote books, that by no means wage conflict and violent jihad and that by no means laid declare to and conquered components of Nigeria is most unlucky. Such assertion can finest be described as being, at finest, intellectually dishonest and patently false and, at worse, historic revisionism in its most brazen and repugnant kind.

The reality is that Dan fodio and his Fulani military not solely indulged in cruel acts of pure barbarity in battle and dedicated what can solely be described as genocide towards defenceless and harmless civilian populations however he additionally imposes his personal excessive, herd line, purist, Wahhabist and Salafist model of Islam on the individuals of core northern Nigeria with a scimitar and a sword and forcefully impose Fulani Emirs on them. The one ethnic nationality that efficiently awarded him and his Fulani armies off within the north have been the robust and proud Kanuris of the El Kanemi dynasty and empire in modern-day Borno state who warned him to remain away from their territory and he did.

Lastly, the one race that ever defeated the Fulani in open battle and thereby put a half and fill cease to their try to match down south and “dip the Koran within the Atlantic ocean” have been the Gallant sons of Oduduwa, led primarily by the Ibadan basic and army commanders. Who defeated them within the battle at Osogbo in 1840 and drove them again north. They not solely defeated them however they’re additionally slaughtered and ate their horses and publicly executed their allies and army commanders from Ilorin. The Fulani have by no means succeeded in conquering the individuals of the Southwest army and I make boast to say that they by no means will.

The latest assertion credited to the Fulani Nationalist Motion referred to as FUNAM who mentioned that each inch of Nigeria belonged to them “ from Sokoto to the banks of Atlantic ocean”, that Nigeria is the one inheritance we’ve got in Africa and wherever on the earth” and that this was the future bestowed on Uthman Dan Fodio which might have been fulfilled since 1816 if not from the obstruction of this nice project by the British” was merely an correct and trustworthy reflection on the mindset and supreme imaginative and prescient of Uthman Dan Fodio and different nice Fulani leaders and Mahdi’s by means of the ages like sir Ahmadu Bello and these days President Muhammadu Buhari.

FUNAM went additional to say, “it’s not time to play the ostrich. Our males are ready. We’re desirous to battle. We’re boiling with the zeal to actualize our goals; sufficient of double-dealing and ambivalence by FULANI political leaders who sadly suppose the FULANI can solely take again what belongs to us by means of appeasement and election destined to mirror cultural values antithetical to the preaching of Uthman Dan Fodio”. We ignore and play down these incendiary phrases at our personal peril. I converse for thousands and thousands once I say that indigenous and oppresses individuals and ethnic nationalities of Nigeria have had sufficient of those open threats of tyranny and violence and neither are we occupied with being vassals and slaves. Had we hearken to Colonel Emeka Odumegwu-ojukwu and the Biafrans in 1967, thought of their horrible plight and aligned with them throughout civil conflict issues would have been very completely different immediately and we might not have been subjected to those childish and provocative insult from the likes of FUNAM.
The underside line is as follows: We both have a Nigeria the place all males, no matter ethnic nationality or religion, are thought to be being equal earlier than God and the regulation or we will haven’t any Nigeria in any respect. No-one can impose their will on us and neither imposes their will on us and neither can anybody intimidate us.

We don’t search conflict and neither can we relish or endorse any type of violence. We would like peaceable co-existence and mutual respect. We would like love, prosperity and progress for all and we provide it to those that want us properly and search to do us no hurt. Nevertheless, it’s in a second of insanity we’re ever attacked we will stand agency and stand robust. We will by no means retreat and neither we could give up. We will defend our individuals, our land, we will defend our honour and we will defend our heritage. We aren’t coward and we will by no means bend the knee or bowheads our heads to the tyranny of overseas invaders who erroneously consider that they have been born to rule and that we have been to serve.
