Few days ago, snippets of BBC Africa Eye’s encounter with some notorious bandits in Zamfara was reported. Well, the full video has now been released and after watching, I felt I should let you guys see it.


Video: BBC Africa Eye’s Encounter With Some Notorious Bandits In Zamfara. I Just Watched The Full Video  And After Watching, I Felt You Guys Should See It.


FEW TAKEAWAYS:


First, there’s now conflict between Hausas and Fulanis in the north. Or let me restrict it to Zamfara because the reporter only covered Zamfara.


Second, both the Hausa and Fulani communities have valid grievances which successive governments have failed to address which gave rise to what we have now.


Again, you will see the brazen failure of government at constituent level. Deplorable educational and health infrastructure everywhere. You will shed tears for this nation.


Then you would see govt's insincerity, brazen lies and deceitful attitude towards the whole conflict. Like denying they paid ransom when they actually did.


WARNING: Graphic and gory contents and some tear-inducing scenes.

Brief history


The Hausa's occupied the up north since as early as your mind can conjure. They always have their culture and customs, which include friendliness to strangers. Then, along the line, Usman Dan Fodio, a Fulani, showed up as a stranger to the hausas, and he was given a sheer hospitality and cordiality, especially for the shared similitude in customs, and credibility of the Hausa's. He would later settle, tentaculate, and go on to firm dynasty, including by waging wars against his hosts. He succeded. Amina of Zaria tried to help her people against the expanding suppression.


Over time, however, they has been cemented a union between the two formerly distinct tribes, after series intermarriages and inter. The Fulani's admit that they rightly have a home here and must continue their historical activities. The Hausa's do not deny this but they want to achieve happiness through basic rights (to live, farm, unintimidated, etc) once more, so their friendliness may start getting corroded.


According to the video.


The fulanis, who are naturally herders, claim they've been misaligned by the nation authorities. They no longer have herding root for their cattle. They formulated deadly bandit groups.


The Hausas, who are naturally farmers, claim they've been victimized - looted, maimed, kidnapped - by the Fulanis. They formulated vigilante groups for defense.


Who is to blame?


This points to leaders in their land for shunning education. Nowhere on earth, today, can register development without education.

After watching this video last night, I don't even know what to say.


These guys are not happy with what they're doing but they can't help it...


If they were listened to maybe we won't be where we are now...


This was the same reason IPOB became a terror...


From the video I noticed obvious there was a time when they were facing several challenges as regards their cattle rearing business, since there's no appropriate channel to handle their issues, they resorted to fighting...


Let's call them to order... Trust me they will embrace ranching if we can tell them how it will benefit them the most...


The government should do something else this thing will consume all of us

Another simpleton. You cannot change the Fulani man's mind for a thousand years. You think the Fulani elite class do not know about ranching or can't use their Fulfulde language to persuade their kinsmen on ranching? If ranching is an approachable solution, why did their former sultan say that Nigeria is an inheritance for the Fulani's only and must be conquered? Honestly, some of you are so annoying, esp. southerners. You go to school but never learn to reason critically. Fulani's all from 16 Africans countries came to Abuja a few months ago? How would they access up to 16 countries and gain significant numbers if they stuck to ranching only? Did you read of the 1804 Jihad by the Fulani's on the Hausas by Dan Fodio? If you per chance, studied the history, did the Fulani's tell you ranching was their problem. We cannot afford this kind of backward thinking by some of you in our midst anymore cos your ignorance is putting all of us at risk. NONSENSE! undecided

I must say this, if the anger I saw amongst the Hausas in the video persists, then trust me, Zamfara people will not come even a thousand miles close to any ticket with a Fulani on it in the 2023 elections.


I think the Hausa/Fulani marriage has gone sour and the two people who have co-existed for centuries are finally on each other’s neck tasting for blood.


When you realize that all these bandits got emboldened when Buhari got to power, you would realize why this country must be retrieved both from APC and from some blood tasty people, Fulani or others.


One of our Presidential candidate even had the audacity to choose a terrorist sympathizer as Running Mate.


Let’s retrieve Nigeria for Nigerians please.


Vote Peter Obi!

I watched the documentary this morning, it's so disheartening, Hausa youths in tsafe Zamfara state went on a rampage attacking Fulani's in tsafe be it man, woman or child, in retaliation for the attacks by Fulani's.

They attacked one small Fulani girl and almost killed her.


One of the first Fulani bandit that laid down his arms had to pick up arms again because according to him, even after dropping arms, Hausas attacked his community again.


I love how BBC ended it by saying they showed and asked Nigerian military about the allegations and how government are hiding a lot of things from the masses but there was no response from the military.


Buying of Guns is like buying bread for the bandits

Saw this documentary last night.... Scary!!!


The op has summarized everything from the video. Government keep saying the killers are not Fulani's, but it's now obvious they are the one (those living in the bush, illiterates and felt neglected).


I even feel like they think they own Nigeria, don't know where they have that gut from.


These guys are ready to die, no remorse and like they said in the video, it's now a business.


Government also lied, saying they didn't pay ransom and also reducing the number of dead people. It's a different world there and looking like a genocide already. This is only zamfara, not to talk of Kastina, Kaduna and others.

We just have this last chance to practice democracy or war will mar or destroy us if this oldies where given another Chance to destroy the already finished country.


Vote right, it wont be about economy again unlike Buhari era, it would be all about killings and war. We're going down to worst of Somalia in coming years if we can fight this war without arms at the polls. Abuja has been penetrated and major big politicians has collected breakfast already. So your breakfast might now be justified..


“Are you aware that terrorists abducted a Captain & 13 soldiers while responding to a distress call in an Abuja community yesterday?”
