This was made known on Wednesday, April 10, 2024, during a global conference which had the presence of several prominent Yoruba people living in Nigeria and the Diaspora.

The group expressed their dismay at the government’s failure to apprehend the herders in Yoruba land, adding that it has caused a huge blow to the agricultural sector.

According to the Yoruba Nation, the Fulani killings, destruction and kidnappings have not decreased despite having one of their own as the leader of the country.

The group said, “According to an official estimation, as many as 29,000 Yoruba people were killed in the Yoruba Homelands under Buhari. Most Yoruba farmers abandoned farms altogether and the traditional Yoruba agricultural economy has been destroyed.

“Sadly, even after President Buhari was succeeded as President of Nigeria on May 29, 2023 by one of our own fathers, Ahmed Bola Tinubu, the Fulani killings, destruction and kidnappings have not decreased. It has escalated. In fact, under President Tinubu, the Fulani’s challenge of peace and security in Nigeria has now reached an intolerable peak.

“As a mark of the current confidence in the Fulani challenge to security, the topmost Fulani organisations issued two Fulani declarations of war against the rest of Nigeria on January 24 and 26 (2024) and announced that President Tinubu is not their President and if any Fulani is arrested for any act of Fulani war, the Fulani would burn down everything in Nigeria.”
