FULANI GRUESOME ATTACK: That Future Onofiok Luke saw

Suspected Fulani Herdsman
Suspected Fulani Herdsman
Hon. Onofiok Luke, then as an ordinary member, two years ago moved a motion on the floor of the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly warning against the activities of Fulani herdsmen in the state and in the Southern region of the country.

Following a well researched motion, he caused the House, then led by Elder Sam Ikon, to adopt a 3-point resolution, one of which was to order then Governor Godswill Akpabio to immediately take measures to guard against a possible outbreak of crisis between farmers/community folks and Fulani herdsmen in the state.

Hon. Luke warned that governors in the region didn’t need to wait for the farmers-herders crises, which was spreading in the northern part of the country at the time, to get to the south before they swung into action. I am sure that like many other such warnings by foresighted Nigerians, this timely call-to-duty by Hon. Onofiok Luke was ignored. Now, look where we are.

  1. Well, “where we are” is not as important as what we must do, now. Since we missed the bid for proactive measures we are now left with active measures. Every Akwa Ibomite master or servant, leader or follower is loved and cherished by Akwa Abasi Ibom. No animal is worth living at the expense of the least of Akwa Ibomites. As such all MUST learn to view the so called Fulani Herdsmen as Boko Haram syndicates. They are BH penetrating states in that disguise, not for the purpose of grazing grass but for blood sucking. We must not ignore this call. “For you do not know whether it was for this course you were called to Akwa Ibom Palace”. Says Mordecai, and endorsed by the prophets.
