Professor Musa Maina, a respected academician at the University of Jos, Nigeria, gave a brilliant exposé of the history of the fulanis in St. Augustine Major Seminary, Jos.


This exposé is even more meaningful and noteworthy at a time when the killings of citizens by herdsmen in certain communities in Nigeria is getting uncontrolled. One might wonder now amidst the crisis in southern Kaduna  and in other places, if there are other things the fulani does other than taking care of his cattle.

While some may not know exactly why the fulani herdsmen are invariable attached to this particular means of life, others settle for the possibility of a kind of Jihad movement in  Nigeria.

I simply try to question the ‘happy darkness’ by encouraging more hands to minimize ignorance. Just a dose of knowledge, is enough in training the mind, to conform to nothing except truth. Let’s ride this train together!
