The Fulani were originally all Berbers. A slightly darker Arab tribe who Arabs treated with contempt. Most Berbers were forced to flee from North Africa by the full-blooded Arabs. Driven into the desert.
Arabs are not a monolithic people. They are made up of many tribes. Saudi Arabia alone has 35 tribes who do not understand each other’s language. Berbers are to be found in large numbers from Morocco to Libya. Tunisia, to be an IT powerhouse, managed to flush out almost all its own Berbers. Only 5,000 Berbers remain in Tunisia. There is a reason why Arabs do this.
The Berber-Fulah were expelled into the desert because they are vagrant, congenital bandits.
A menace to any society. About a hundred years ago, even Ibn Saud, the founder of Saludi Arabia, forced the Bedouin and other nomadic tribes in Saudi Arabia to stay in one place. He too was exasperated by their hit and run crimes.
Now, many Berber-Fulah forsook the harsh Sahara desert, drifting southwards. Shaped like the conical straw hats they adopted when they left the desert, their conical ancestral huts are still to be found in the Libyan desert. The almost Arab looking Fulani’s you see in Nigeria are the ones who have just left those huts and been smuggled into our public life to become rulers of Nigeria’s military and civil service.
Now, let us use historical incidents to explain the Fulani mind-set.
In 1808, Fulani man Gwoni Mukhtar, on behalf of Usman dan Fodio, declared a sudden-ambush jihad against the Kanem-Borno (Kanuris) who were their overlords in Wurobokki, regional capital of the Kanem-Borno (Kanuris). Caught unawares, the reigning Mai (King) of the Kanem-Borno (Kanuris), his family and officials fled the capital.
The Kanuris too are an Arab-Berber clan who were forced into the desert by North African Arabs. So, they knew the Fulani predator game only too well. Now, in that moment of distress, the man who came to the rescue of the Kanem-Borno (Kanuri), was a person amongst the tribe of black Africans who the Berber-Kanuri met south of Lake Chad. Just like the migrating Kanuri met the black African Chibok people and others in what is today called Borno State. His name was al-Kanemi, a Kanembu.
Giving the usual lie and excuse, Usman dan Fodio claimed that Kanem-Borno must be attacked and conquered because Kanem-Borno was not practising perfect Islam. Meanwhile Kanem-Borno had existed continually as an empire for 800 years. A settled people, though always drifting in whole, southwards of the Sahara desert, who knew Islam before the vagrant Fulanis stumbled upon Islam.
Al-Kanemi was amused by the claims of the parvenu Fulani. The Kanem-Borno (Kanuri) too are Berber predators who prey on black Africans who tolerate them and allow them to settle. Al-Kanemi famously argued with the aggressive Fulanis that Kanem-Borno (Kanuri) were just as Islamic as the Fulani were and did not need to be conquered by the Fulani to perfect their Islam.
In 2021, Yoruba Muslims are apparently working towards having Yorubaland conquered by the Fulani, so that the Fulani can “perfect Islam” for them. A sudden interest in Sharia and diverse acts of treachery against their own people.
Al-Kanemi was blunt. He told the Fulani their jihad was obviously a quest for territory and nothing else.
The Fulani remained adamant that Kanem-Borno (Kanuri) territory must be surrendered to them.
In the same year, 1808, Fulani man Mukhtar attacked Kanem-Borno. The Fulani army was soundly defeated and Mukhtar was killed. The next year, another Fulani army attacked Kanem-Borno. The Fulani were slaughtered. Mercilessly and comprehensively. They were not allowed to surrender and be taken as prisoners.
The Fulani stopped attacking.
Thus, Al-Kanemi pacified the Fulani-threatened western frontier of the Kanem-Borno (Kanuri) empire. Not through dialogue, but by violent force.
As congenital bandits, the Fulani keeps taking and taking and taking unless it is stopped by violent force. Has anyone ever heard or read of bandits anywhere in history who stopped coming back to raid their victims because they felt sorry for the victims ?
Bandits never stop until they are forcefully resisted.
The Fulani’s foothold, its first sudden-ambush success was Sokoto, in 1804. The Berber-Fulani then spread out using guile and terror. Just like the Fulani is doing in South Nigeria today. By 1903, the Fulani had totally enslaved over 100 black African tribes in those areas of North Nigeria now known as Sokoto, Zamfara, Kebbi, Katsina, Kano, Jigawa, Bauchi and Gombe State.
All the indigenous black Africans in those states were totally helpless slaves of the Fulani for 100 years. A Fulani could use his sword to cut off the head of any of them at any time, just for fun, and nothing will happen. They were utter and complete slaves. Employing mass-murders, sporadic rapes, capricious amputation of limbs and the most barbaric forms of cruelty, the Fulani drilled the fear of horse mounted Fulani into these tribes.
Lugard observed that the only thing the Berber-Fulani did with all these black African tribes was to regularly raid their communities to hunt for human beings as if for animals.
Human beings who the Fulani then sold as slaves to North African Arabs.
Lugard wrote to the Sultan of Sokoto in 1903 saying slavery had been outlawed around the world for almost a century and this had to stop.
The Sultan’s response to Lugard’s request was short : “Between us, there is only war”.
With just 400 men, Lugard left Lagos for the North Nigeria defeated the Sokoto Caliphate’s 35,000 cavalry and soldiers. Lugard promptly sent word as best he could to the over 100 different northern tribes that they were now free from slavery.
Though full of bluff, almost invariably, the Fulani loses frontal wars. Deceit, sabotage and the sudden-killings of its hosts in large numbers, is the Fulani’s preferred way to fight a “war”.
That is why those in South Nigeria must understand that they are now at war.
It is not any special political wisdom. It is the simple stupidity and violent greed of the low life bandit. Congenital bandits. “More wants more”, if the victims continue to allow it. The greedy bandit quite forgets that his victims may one day get fed up and lay ambush for him.
For as long as he is not forcefully repelled, the Fulani will continue to raid and steal all from whoever allows him.
That is why ridiculous weakling Fulani bandits take liberties like this in Nigeria : –
Just look at the control chart below : –

Anti- corruption Agencies
Those “empowered to steal the proceeds of crime”.
1) EFCC – Fulani
2) ICPC – Fulani
3) NFIU – Fulani
We are making a terrible mistake.
The Fulanis do not put themselves in all these positions because they are “masters of the power game”. The Fulani is not stealing our resources with reckless abandon because they are astute politicians. Astute politicians know that barefaced theft will lead to resentment and violent resistance. Astute politicians know that without an equilibrium, there will eventually be a fierce backlash and loss will come upon the oppressor.
On the contrary, the Fulani takes everything because he is congenitally stupid and to his shock and surprise, has met with so, so little organised and effective resistance. The Fulani is a simple bandit.
Bandits have no morals and bandits have no sense of proportion. Bandits keep taking and taking and taking. Bandits become more emboldened if their victims do not forcefully resist them. Bandits will kill and kill and kill to keep stealing from their victims. That is the Fulani’s only plan. That is how the Fulani were able to keep the indigenous black Africans in Sokoto, Zamfara, Kebbi, Katsina, Kano, Jigawa, Bauchi and Gombe State for 100 years. Employing mass-murders, sporadic rapes, capricious amputation of limbs and the most barbaric forms of cruelty, the Fulani drilled the fear of horse mounted Fulani into these tribes.
It is actually official Fulani policy to keep any society which allows them to stay, in a constant state of crisis and insecurity. This is a policy sanctioned by the current chief bandit, called the Sultan of Sokoto.
Farmers in South Nigeria ought to bring a class action against the Sultan of Sokoto, all the Emirs, all Fulanis who ever held public office in Nigeria and silent facilitators of the Fulani agenda like Aliko Dangote for damages.
These rogues jointly owe the peoples of South Nigeria at least ₦20,000,000,000,000= (Twenty Trillion Naira) [US$40 billion] in damages.
short explanation is given in the next paragraph. They must be pursued all the way to the international courts so that their assets, both foreign and domestic, are sequestrated immediately and eventually recovered for us. This requires some explanation.
In 1894, an Englishman, William Wallace who travelled through Fulani-conquered “Hausa” territory, wrote in his *Notes on a Journey through the Sokoto Empire and Borgu, that “the founder of the Fulah dynasty, Othman Dan Fodio, left to his successors instructions, which they have found it expedient to obey, to allow these two tribes (bandit tribes) to continue their yearly raids in order to keep the unruly provinces occupied, and thus divert the minds of the Hausa inhabitants from an otherwise inevitable struggle to shake off the Fulah rule.”
Put bluntly, official Fulani policy since they used sudden ambush to take over Sokoto in 1804 is to create a perpetual crisis in our lives. The Fulani needs that crisis, the state of poverty, to stop us from having the time to think of the extremely malevolent role the Fulani plays in our communities.
The millions of okada riders who have plagued South Nigeria in the past 30 years are black African tribesmen from North Nigeria. They are not Fulani. They too are fleeing Fulani oppression and madness in the north. In the process, they have turned their Fulani problem into “our Fulani problem”.
They have turned our societies into an unliveable nightmare. All this has to stop. They are a terrible Achan in our societies.
This is because, although they fled Fulani-induced chaos in the north, when they arrive in the south, they look up to the Fulani and do the Fulani’s bidding. They and their forebears were helpless slaves of the Fulani. On behalf of the Fulani, they will kill us in the name of Islam. We tolerate them at our peril.
When the Fulani says it “lays claim” to Southern Kaduna State, it expects the young tribesmen who don’t want to be killed to move to Lagos, Ogun State etc. etc. There are more than 60 black African tribes in Kaduna State alone. They are too fragmented to fight the Fulani, so their young men flock to Lagos, speaking Hausa and changing the demography of Yorubaland.
One of thousands of examples deliberate Fulani manufacture of chaos. Fulani vagrant cattle men mounted a roadblock and started shooting sporadically at travellers in Yorubaland in February 2020. They had been doing terrible things before and have been doing worse things since. It is all deliberate. There is rejoicing in Sokoto, Kano and Daura when the criminals call them on mobile phones to tell the Sultan and Emirs what they had just done. Just as much as the amputation of the hands of Yoruba farmers, the kidnapping of Yoruba farmers and the wanton rape of Yoruba mothers and daughters is deliberate. It is official Fulani Caliphate policy.
That is how the Fulani destroyed “Hausa” societies. William Wallace’s Notes on a Journey through the Sokoto Empire and Borgu is required reading for anybody who wants to understand why the Fulani should never be allowed to settle anywhere in South Nigeria. The Fulani is a pernicious harbinger of poverty, real deepening poverty, backwardness, death and total destruction.
Meanwhile, bandits have no Plan B. They simply steal and steal and steal all. When their victims resist and expel them, they go back into the wild, looking for other societies to plague.
Complacent and irresponsible in denial, just like Jews once were in Germany, we look on as a minority Fulani tribe of primitive low-IQ bandits threaten us with mass-murder and annihilation.
Remarkably, the Fulani’s hare-brained claim is this simple. That although his people intermarried with black Africans in Fouta Djallon, Guinea Republic before they drifted to Sokoto, he is superior to us because he has some “Arab” Berber blood in him.
The death of one black man started #BLACK LIVES MATTER and the train of events which lead to the removal of racist Trump as the world’s most powerful man. Meanwhile, in Nigeria, the laughable claims of racial superiority by a despised half-Berber clan of dressed-up bandits blights the lives of 200 million black Africans.
A wretched Fulani minority tribe of congenital bandits threaten us with the continued wholesale theft of our resources, with deepening poverty, death and mass-murder.
Just then, the odious traitors in our midst say we must do nothing. That we should just cower inside our houses and wait to be killed.
The world is watching.
If we do not forcefully expel the Berber-Fulani bandits from our lives, black Africans all over the world will forever be treated with utter contempt.
If we do not outwit these simple bandits, posterity will never forgive us.
