Don't be afraid of bullets - Defence Minister tells troops

Miyetti Allah To Rollout 5,000 Fulani Vigilantes To Tackle Amotekun, Ebubeagu

The National President of the 'Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore', Abdullahi Bello Badejo, has said it will rollout 5,000 Fulani vigilantes across the 36 states of Nigeria. 

Stating this during a media interview with The Sun newspaper, he said State Governors have no power to ban or stop grazing by Fulani herdsmen in their states, stressing that any Governor who tries to is "merely daydreaming". 

While disclosing that plans for the Miyetti Allah Vigilante Group is in the making, he said it has been delayed initially to see if the Federal Government, Inspector-General of Police would protect their lives but they have obviously failed. 

According to him, the regional security outfits are killing the Fulanis and they have no choice than to protect their people. 

“We will have no option than to roll out our own with over 5, 000 personnel in all the 36 states of the federation and Abuja to protect our Fulani people in the forests and bushes, whose lives are in danger.

“You can see how the Amotekun are killing our people in the South-West, as if they are having an agenda. I’m very much surprised the way they are taking the law into their hands," he said.

The Kano State Hisbah Board has arrested some youths in the state for eating in daytime amidst the ongoing 'Ramadan' fasting. 

Confirming the arrest, Director-General of the Hisbah board, Dr. Aliyu Musa Kibiya, said those arrested included eight (8) females and three (3) males in different parts of the state. 

“We will investigate and if they have cogent reasons we will release them. Those found wanting will however be enlightened and even prosecuted if need be," he said. 

He noted that a woman must not be seen eating in the public during fasting "for whatever reasons", adding that the board will continue to arrest anyone found to be eating during the day. 

“Fasting is compulsory for healthy, adult Muslims in the month of Ramadan except for the travellers, menstruating women or old people", he added. 

The Hisbah has generated a lot of controversies lately over some arrests made in the state. 

On March 25, was the invasion of some off-campus hostels of the Bayero University in Kano, where some students of the opposite sex found in the same room were arrested by officials of the Hisbah. 

This and many more arrests made by the Shariah officers over the time have sparked mixed reactions from Nigerians and sundry. 

At our dear readers, what's your thought on the Shariah system practised in the Northern part of Nigeria?, let's have your opinion in the comment section.
