‘We will not allow Fulani herdsmen degenerate into Boko Haram’ – IGP Arase

The Inspector General of the Nigeria Police, Solomon Arase has said the Force will not allow the menace of Fulani herdsmen degenerate into a new Boko Haram.

Arase told journalists on Saturday, in Abuja that the police would continue to monitor the Fulani herdsmen and ‘amputate them whenever they come up.’

The Police boss attributed the killings being carried out by the Fulani herdsmen to the influx of arms and ammunition from Mali, Chad and Libya.

“I have repeatedly said that what is happening has to be placed against the background of what is happening in African sub-region.”

“When you look at the period when these things started happening and the crisis with migrants and then the flow of arms across our borders, then you will understand what is happening.”

“We have been living with our own indigenous herdsmen for many years, so why is it now that there are crisis in Mali, Libya, Chad and the proliferation of firearms that the herdsmen are becoming more prevalent in the system.”

“We have to look at it against that background and maybe they have indigenous collaborators but we will not allow them and it will not degenerate into Boko Haram. We will continue to monitor them, degrade them and continue to amputate them whenever they come up.”
