Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Nu­rud­deen M. Ab­dal­lah

For­mer Peo­ples Demo­cratic Party chair­man and del­e­gate from Kebbi State at the Na­tional Con­fer­ence Dr Bello Hal­liru Muhammed said yes­ter­day that the Fu­lani are not mur­der­ers as be­ing al­leged by some peo­ple.

He was re­act­ing to Terseer Tsumba, a del­e­gate from For­mer Speak­ers Fo­rum, who said that the killings in the North cen­tral were car­ried out by Fu­lani herds­men.

Hal­liru said such state­ments are mere spec­u­la­tion as it lacked proof. He said it is mis­lead­ing to make such state­ments on the floor of the ple­nary.

“It is not true that Fu­lani are at­tack­ing Tivs com­mu­ni­ties. This al­le­ga­tion was never prop­erly in­ves­ti­gated and found to be true. There is no any ev­i­dence to prove that Fu­lani are the peo­ple car­ry­ing out th­ese at­tacks,” he said.

He said some peo­ple bent in de­stroy­ing the North are killing peo­ple to cre­ate eth­nic wars.
