“…even some of the Fulani senior citizens also got wind of the attacks and also informed the security, yet the security failed to give them a protection.”
Blames over the real cause of the Sunday killings of over 60 People in four villages of Girei LGA of Adamawa State is being shifted to security agencies for outright failure to protect lives and property.
According to findings made by our correspondent, all security agencies in the state were properly briefed when locals got wind of the well-coordinated attacks in their respective communities.
One of the community’s stakeholders and a popular politician in the state who pleaded anonymity said:
“We smell evil the last two weeks on how these Fulanis were sharing kolanut and we were told they are making serious consultations both within and outside the state.
“The few Fulani residing in our areas suddenly migrated to an unknown place, and normally if you see a Fulani man behaving this way is definitely a bad omen.
“We all had a meeting with the relevant village authorities and decided to communicate with all the security agencies concerning the impending coming attacks.
“My Brother, like joke, like play, the attacks claimed the life of many people and properties worth millions of Naira are indeed destroyed”.
A community Youths mobilizer who also sued to be anonymous revealed that even some of the Fulani senior citizens also got wind of the attacks and also informed the security, yet the security failed to give them a protection.
Findings also revealed that the Fulani came for a pay back on how the communities have been treating them bad.
There is still tension in those Areas as virtually all the people have left for fear of another attacks to more secured environment.
The state Government, in a visit to those rampaged communities, have since condoled those affected and ordered the state’s emergency management agency and all the relevant rescue organisations to intensify duties in those affected villages as all needed relief materials will be provided by the Government.
