There is a news report that has been trending and by its very nature, it should disturb every well-meaning Nigerian. More so, it is a piece of news that should move the Nigerian government into patriotic rebuke of the group that stirred up such public uproar. But known of such thing happened obviously because the present government tacitly supports such evil move.

Recently, the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore reportedly made bold announcement about its plan to set up vigilante across the states of the federation. This was made known by the National President and Secretary of the association, Bello Bodejo and Saleh Alhassan, respectively, in a communique issued in Abuja last Wednesday.

Already, this has started generating terse reactions among some states of the federation. Different sociocultural groups have been very furious about this development. For instance, Yoruba’s Afenifere, Igbo’s Ohanaeze Ndigbo and Niger Delta’s PANDEF, among others, have made their position well known.

To make the matter worse, Miyetti Allah have called on the security agencies, particularly the Inspector-General of Police to protect Fulani pastoralists across the country from tribal hordes, ethnic militias and cattle rustlers.

There is a red flag the group is waving for all other ethnically conscious Nigerians to see and this is very dangerous to the national security administration in the country. Recall that many ethnic groups in the country have been accusing the Federal Government of encouraging some Northern groups against other sections of the country. The infiltration of killer herders from North to South has since validated this position.

It is indeed very sobering that each time state governments come up with the idea of state police or community police, the Federal Government and its agents flare up against it. Why then has it kept mute since the cattle rearers came up with this suspicious plan to establish security outfit in every part of the country?

It is not in the national interest for Miyetti Allah to float a security outfit nationwide amidst accusation that the present government has both openly and strategically been providing support for the group as a result of its affinity with the Fulani ideology. The security agencies, if they are ready to work, have the capacity to deal with all crimes and insurgency in any part of the country if the ruling party can provide the necessary political will.

Such formation therefore has a clandestine agenda against national interest and should be condemned and rejected by all patriotic Nigerians and all men and women of good and noble conscience.
