Here is why Fulani herdsmen are violent

The governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu has adduced reasons why Fulani herdsmen are prone to crime. The governor explained that the average Fulani herdsman is not literate and because of the nature of their activities, they were prone to crime.

 He spoke in Birnin Kebbi, the state capital, when the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed paid him a courtesy visit with a team of journalists.

Bagudu said that the clashes between farmers and herdsmen across the country are not tribal but consequences of climate change.

According to him, “It is environmental challenge caused by climate change. The occupational practice of pastoralists and even the fishermen are threatened.

“The water resources and grasses are not available and the pastoralists are forced to move toward the South.

 “In Kebbi, the predominant prisoners in custody are the Fulanis; they are prone to crime because of lack of Education.

“On the other hand, they are also victims of cattle rustlers who attack them and take away their animals.”
