Miyetti Allah not a terrorist group, it’s like Afenifere, Ohanaeze – Sultan of Sokoto

The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, on Thursday insisted that any Fulani man carrying arms and ammunition is not a member of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria.‎

According to him, Miyetti Allah is not a criminal organisation.

He likened the group to other socio-cultural organisations like the Afenifere, Ohanaeze Ndigbo and the Arewa Consultative Forum.

He noted that it was formed over 32 years ago to cater for welfare and advance the growth of Fulani business.

The Sultan, who stated this at the General Assembly of Interfaith Dialogue Forum for Peace, IDFP, in Abuja, asked, “How is it possible for Fulani to attack settlements or communities to carry out killings of innocent people, destroy property and disappear without trace?”

He rejected the terrorism tag being placed on members of Miyetti Allah, warning that “We should not be labelling everybody a criminal because his brother is a criminal”.

Abubakar continued, “Miyetti Allah doesn’t control any Fulani man. Calling for proscription of Miyetti Allah is equivalent to calling for the proscription of other ethnic organisations like Afenifere, ACF, Ohanaeze and others.”



  1. Oga, so thats all that concerns you, no statement since to condemn the killings, u just want the tag off.. chaii

    Oga Emir of Kano too came out that the Fulani people that were killed in taraba have to be compensated else there will be more killings. .
    Sounding like Kaduna governor that claimed to have paid off the killers in southern kaduna…hmmm

  2. Now we all are seeing the faces of the sponsorers and leaders of the fulani terrorist organization. It is crystal clear from every statement they made and which they are still making that they are in support of the mayhem their machineriers are carrying out. To be plain these people are just the devil you are looking for or which you have heard about.
