The Fulani socio-cultural group, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore has established its nationwide security network to assist security agencies in tackling criminalities such as cattle rustling, kidnapping and rural banditry confronting the country.

While speaking at the inauguration Wednesday in Lafia, national president of the association, Abdullahi Bodejo, said the volunteer vigilante members meticulously selected, screened and profiled, would function within the ambit of the existing laws of the country.

According to him, the primary objectives of the Nomad Vigilante Group was to encourage peace in rural communities, help secure the livelihoods of farmers and herders, aid in information gathering and intelligence to the Nigerian security agencies of criminals and criminalities within the local communities amongst others.

He said, “To all Nomad Vigilantes, this is a clarion call to unity in purpose. Let us forge alliances with relevant security agencies to fish out criminal elements among communities and reduce the allegation on those who are treated unjustly for crimes not committed as a result of the bad eggs.

“Together, we shall foster dialogue, build bridges within our communities, and usher in an era of lasting peace and harmony,” Bodejo said.

Speaking further, he admonished the volunteer vigilantes to work with the Nigerian Army, the Nigeria Police Force and other security agencies while carrying out their activities across the 13 local government areas of the state.

Also, Bodejo noted that the narrative in the country that all Fulani herdsmen were criminally minded was not true.

The Fulani leader added that any of them who willingly troubles other citizens of the country and gets arrested by the security agencies, will not be rescued by the association.
