National President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore Sociocultural Association, Alhaji Bello Abdullahi Bodejo, has denied saying that Fulani will rule Nigeria forever and was raising 100,000 militiamen to enforce their will on every community in the country.
Bodejo refuted the news reports that he made claims that Nigeria is a Fulbe country and that the Fulbe can enter anywhere without permission.
He said the news report was not true and was aimed at tarnishing his image.
Alhaji Abdullahi Bello Bodejo clarified that the news report is a blatant fabricated lie, stating that it is the work of the enemies of the Fulbe people who concoct insidious and malicious falsehood for their diabolical agenda against the Nigerian state. He therefore called on Nigerians to disregard it.
He also refuted claims that the Fulbe were raising 100,000 militiamen to enforce their will on every community in Nigeria.
Bodejo disclosed this in a statement on Sunday while reacting to comments credited to him that no other tribe would be allowed to rule Nigeria except Fulani.
He said, “My attention has been drawn to a news report making rounds in the social media to the effect that as National President of Miyetti Allah I made claims that Nigeria is a Fulbe country and that the Fulbe can enter anywhere without permission. And that the Fulbe are also raising 100,000 militiamen to enforce their will on every community in this country.
“I want to state clearly and unequivocally that this news report is a fabricated lie.
“It is actually the enemies of the Fulbe people that are at it again, as always, concocting such insidious and malicious falsehood against our people for their diabolical agenda against the Nigerian state.”
He explained that no doubt he was asked by the Sun Newspaper to react on the formation of Amotekun and he responded that every ethnic group has the inalienable right to defend itself against any aggression, including the Fulbe.
He explained that Fulbe would pursue their legitimate business anywhere in Nigeria as the country is their inheritance as it is of other groups.
