Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, a Fulani group, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to arrest former president Olusegun Obasanjo as soon as possible over of his controversial open letter.
According to the Secretary of the organization, Alhassa Saleh, who made this call while fielding questions from journalists, he said the former president doesn’t mean well for the country.
“The earlier they get him (Obasanjo) arrested and dealt with, according to the laws of the land, the better. He doesn’t mean well for the country. We just elected a new government; we have a National Assembly that was just inaugurated.
“Nobody needs any conference, except they are pushing for something else. The unfortunate thing is that intellectuals like Wole Soyinka are also joining the bandwagon of these discredited politicians. But our worry is that they seem to associate every crime that happens now to the Fulani, simply because the President is a Fulani man.
“We are just waiting and watching carefully because we are not demanding too much from the Nigerian state. All we are saying is give us space to graze our animals. That is not difficult.” Saleh said.
