The north allowed themselves to be described as “Hausa-Fulani” . Somehow the Kanuris refused to bunched with those people for whatever their reasons are but it served them better to be known as kanuris than Hausa-Fulani. Part of that classification is why I always faulted MNK 1/
There is nothing like the Hausa-Fulani tribe.

Hausa is a language spoken by a people of a certain geographical location across west Africa while the Fulani is a tribe

We need to understand these things to be able to even begin to think of headway into these Fulani killings 2/
The Hausa speaking parts of Nigeria in a bid to be seen as accommodating accepted the classification “Hausa-Fulani” but thankfully now they have seen the evil it has brought upon them and have started rejecting that classification.3/
Notable Hausas should come out and speak up and dissociate themselves from these marauding militia that is bringing a bad name to their people and language before it festers. Anyhow you want to put it; I will still blame Sir Ahmadu Bello for this because he started the jihad 4/
A lot of people often get history wrong and claim that the entire north was angry at the Igbos because of what they have managed to successfully call “the Igbo coup” but if you ask Senator Bukar Abba Ibrahim the truth , he will tell you that they know why they were angry 5/
Ahmadu Bello was a known jihadist. I think a descendant of Sultan Attahiru . He was a feudalist. A land grabber even though he had his humane sides but was largely a feudalist and a jihadist. 6/
Go and look at the history of the Kanem-Borno empire and you will understand why till date the Kanuris refused to be classified as Hausa-Fulani. The empire spanned from as far as Sudan and what’s left of it is what you see today as Maiduguri. 7/
The might of Kanem-Borno stretched as far as Libya and after the defeat by the French and it was placed under the sokoto caliphate the kanuris have continued to feel that shame till today. That’s why they reject that classification. The Hausa speaking parts should do same too 8/
Anybody who comes to tell you that it’s vegetation that they are looking for their cows , ignore them. That’s not what they are after . They want to conquer. Fulanis were helped by the British to conquer Kamen-Borno empire and in return they plundered Nigeria . 9/
It’s the same deal again today under @MBuhari . Many of you don’t know that they call @MBuhari “the second mahdi” . Meaning “Messiah” . @MBuhari knows what he’s doing and why he’s turning a blind eye to the killings and insecurity. It’s all part of a plan
