Former chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Abubakar Kawu Baraje has traced the origin of the current insecurity in the country to the influx of Fulani from neighboring countries like Sierra Leone, Mali, Senegal, Niger and Chad brought into the country for election purposes in 2015.
According to the former PDP chairman, who also once served as the party’s national secretary, chairman of the breakaway faction of PDP that formed the nucleus of the current ruling party, the Fulani men causing havoc in the country are not aboriginal to Nigeria.
“We are not asking the right question on how the same Fulani we have been leaving with suddenly turned out a menace.
“We also must ask how they had access to their guns,” the ex-party chairman asked.
Baraje stated the Fulani men wreaking havoc in the country are not the Nigerian Fulani.
“The security agencies have not been open about the nature of the problem.
“They have made arrests. Why haven’t they told the public who the terrorists are,” asked Baraje.
According to him, the Fulani causing security problems in the country were brought in to help facilitate victory in the 2015 election.
“After the election, the Fulani have refused to leave. I and other like minds wrote and warned those we started APC with that this was going to happen but nobody listened,” he explained.
