“We will hold you responsible for the killing of herdsmen in the southern parts of Nigeria. Return them to north if their security is no longer guaranteed”- NEF to @MBuhari

@MBuhari didn’t understand this statement but then again the reactionary south also didn’t understand it. While @MBuhari believed that NEF was against him , the reactionary south believed the NEF is with them 🤣 1/

Katakata efriwia 🤣
@MBuhari’s response was written by the duo , @FemAdesina and @GarShehu . While the reactionary south went to dig out OBJ’s video during the OPC crisis during his tenure as an example of a leader , NEF was busy branding the southern Nigerians as killers and non-tolerant folks 2/
Did you notice that NEF statement didn’t say “Return Fulani Herdsmen”? Why ? Because they know that the people behind the bloodletting aren’t herdsmen. They know it’s Fulani militia from out of Nigeria brought in 2014 to cause chaos if @MBuhari lost to @GEJonathan. 3/
NEF statement is a subtle branding and classification of Southern Nigerians as killers of herdsmen and not a people who are defending their lives , lands and properties from the marauding Fulani militia who were armed by @OfficialAPCNg to wrest power from @OfficialPDPNig 4/
The NEF is telling you exactly what I have been saying since ; THERE IS NO FARMER-HERDER CLASHES in Nigeria. Yes we have unruly and uneducated herdsmen who don’t know the difference between cash crops and international export crops from basic crops that one can let go 5/
The NEF is telling you subtly that they know who’s behind the killings and that killing the people they have employed to look after their cattle is not right because it’s not their employees that are doing the killing or kidnappings 6/
The NEF understands the dangers the @MBuhari agenda has caused for them financially and otherwise and are now subtly prodding the Govt to either come to their rescue by fighting the Southern Nigeria or they will help bury the Govt ! 7/
You people may not understand the game that is at play here now but he rest assured that the NEF is NOT ON YOUR SIDE!!! They are only interested in their cattle and the financial proceeds it brings back to them.
