‘‪Ethinicisation‬’ of ‪Fulani Herdsmen is an Insult to Us, Kidnapping Originated‬ in the ‪South‬-East but We Don't Call Igbos Kidnappers" - Northern Governors

This statement was made after a meeting attended by the governor's of all the 19 Northern States in Nigeria. While briefing newsmen, the Chairman of the Northern States Governors Forum (NSGF) and Governor of Borno State, Alhaji Kashim Shettima said:

“We want to unequivocally condemn the recent ‪‎killings‬ in Enugu and other parts of the country. But we equally condemn the ‪‎politicisation‬ or permit me, the ‘‪ethinicisation‬’ of the whole crisis. It goes ‪‎beyond‬ Fulani. If anything happens, they say ‪Fulani herdsmen‬; to me it is an insult.

Kidnapping in this country ‪‎originated‬ in the ‪South‬-East, why don’t they call Igbos ‪kidnappers‬? We have a great national ‪‎challenge‬ and we want to ‪‎call‬ on all and sundry to come and let us solve our common ‪challenges‬ as a people. The blood of paternity that binds us together supersedes whatever differences that might divide us."
