Fulani cannot fight a war. They don’t have land or property to defend. Their motivation for war is to conquer, destroy others property and take others land. Remember Buhari’s threat to the Igbo who have property and investments across the North
Fulani cannot fight a war. They don’t have organizations outside of the small bands of wandering herders. The town Fulani have become sedentary and cannot fight in a war.
Fulani cannot fight a war. They mostly don’t have the education and cannot master modern technology required for warfare. Their lives are purely nihilistic and antediluvian. They don’t build, they destroy. Farms and investments, nations and civilizations. They are bestial in their sexual orientation, particularly those who roam in the wilds with the cows. Without a sedentary culture, they have been unable to build civilizations. They adapt to the cultures and languages of wherever some of them settle as they have done among the Hausa.
Fulani cannot fight a war. But the Fulani have guile, subterfuge and cunning. With these, they overwhelm the local populations and rule over some of them that are unwary. Buhari is the typical Fulani, grasping, cunning, ungrateful and unkind. He gives you a quarter to take the entire lot.
Fulani cannot fight a war. All Fulani who aspire to leadership are like Buhari. They grovel to you during their quest for power. When they ascend to power, they tie you up with laws and the security forces, whip you, take everything from you and make you serve their pleasure like chattel. Fulani cannot keep friends that they can’t use to advance their interests. They master the art of using your own people against you.
Fulani cannot fight a war. And they are not brave either. They cannot face any army in a frontal battle, no matter how rag-tag that army is and no matter how well trained they themselves are. They cannot stand the boom of guns and the clash of irons because their civilization never crossed the iron age. Beyond a spear, bow and arrow, they are lost.
Fulani cannot fight a war. Street gangs or “Anti Balaka” forces defeated a fearfully equipped Fulani army in three days of fighting in Bangui, the capital of the Central Africa Republic (CAR). Fighting started mid-morning and by sunset, the street boys of Bangui were in the Presidential Palace and Michel Djotodia, the boastful Fulani President was on the run.
Fulani cannot fight a war. The Eggon of Nassarawa state who have had many engagements with Fulani even up to recently will tell you that Fulani cannot fight a war even with the best guns. “They cannot shoot straight and cannot stand the exchange of gunfire”. It is the reason they sneak on undefended, isolated communities and only at night. If you fire only one shot back at them, they all flee.
Fulani cannot fight a war. Attacking sleeping, isolated villages at night and running away before the break of dawn is what they regard as warfare. That is how they conquered the Hausa and made them slaves in their own land.
Fulani cannot fight a war. But Fulani have done well for themselves by exploiting the Southerners’ greed for money and manipulating them to access power and cleave to it. Many southerners’ and northerners have being victims but the prominent ones today are: Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Lauretta Onochie, Governors of Abia, Ebonyi, Imo States and many others.
It is the political power attained through devious subterfuge and manipulation that they thereafter deploy to control the entire nation, particularly the fighting forces and other state institutions of violence. The armed forces in turn hold down Nigeria on behalf of the Fulani for serial abuse, economic exploitation and dehumanization.
So when Buhari boasts about war against the Igbo and calling them dots in a circle, he is not looking to use Fulani soldiers for the fighting but fighters from other ethnicities. Yoruba and the minorities fought the Civil War the last time and the Fulani claimed victory after using Yakubu Gowon, Awolowo and the soldiers from minority ethnic groups. Fulani were not in the fight during the Civil War. Fulani money or resources were not even in the treasury.
Fulani cannot fight a war. They have the cunning of starting war and making other people do the fighting while waiting to claim the victory afterwards, as they made Hausa kill their own kings and as they did after the Nigerian Civil War. So when you hear Buhari boast about war and “language people understand” know that he wants to use you and your kinsmen to fight and die so that Fulani can claim more power and benefits in Nigeria.
Fulani cannot fight a war but Buhari and his Fulani are quickly re-organizing the Army to put only Muslim Northern Officers directly in command of troops while retiring many southern officers and posting the rest as staff officers or to positions where they have no access to troops. No matter.
The Nigerian Army in it’s present shape and fighting form cannot defeat the army of any country.. Nigerian Government can keep on boasting. But we know how empty vessels sound.
The Fulani cannot fight a war. They can only boast and hope to use others to fight a war they instigate.
The Fulani cannot fight a war.
