The Proverbial Stubborn Fly Follows the Corpse to the Grave! – Igbo Proverb
It is fair to draw the conclusion that Hausa ethnic communities that inhabit the Northern parts of the failed country called Nigeria are not very happy people.
When one king Yunfa, the Hausa Sarkin of a former city of Gobir, now called Sokoto, welcomed Usman Dan Fodio and his killer jihadists in 1804, it did not occur to him that he had unwittingly signed the death warrant of his people.
The tragic result for him was that one after the other, the different Hausa kingdoms of Northern Nigeria fell to the Fulani invaders.
The marauding Fulani have a history and reputation of abusing their hosts’ generosity.
Today, the vanquished Hausas of Northern Nigeria are miserably answerable to these Fulani invaders, except, of course, the few that are playing second fiddle to the whims of the Fulani.
We challenge a bona fide Hausa native to, in a straight face; tell the world all is well with the numerous Hausa communities of Northern Nigeria today.
Another Fulani jihadist also conquered the Afonja dynasty (Ilorin) of the Yoruba kingdom in today’s Western Nigeria.
Just as the Hausas were forcibly converted to Islam, the Yoruba have been converting to Islam, both voluntarily and by coercion.
About fifty percent of the Yoruba people are now Muslims.
Paradoxically, it is a brand of Islam that respects other religions, which the Fulani view as fake rather than true Islam.
Anyone who still debates this interpretation should reflect on the MKO Abiola presidential wahala.
The marauding Fulani did not leave out the ethnicities in the swath of Nigeria’s Middle-Belt untouched, in their zeal for jihadist conquest and invasion.
Instead, the overrun of these hapless ethnicities going back a long time goes on until today unimpeded.
They have sacked many Middle-Belt communities, destroying property and farmlands, as well as killing, maiming, and raping people who stand in the way of their occupation.
Prior to Fulani the invasion, these defeated peoples, whether Hausa, Yoruba or Middle-Belt, practiced their different religions and way of life.
Following the invasion and incorporation into the Fulani caliphate of Usman Dan Fodio and his marauding nomads, the lives of these ethnic groups were never the same again.
The regions of the failed country called Nigeria that dared the Fulani were the Bini kingdom, the Bornu kingdom, and the entire Eastern region.
Some Fulani did migrate to these areas, settled in their usual way, and remained law-abiding until recently that their tin god, General Muhammadu Buhari, ascended to the Nigerian throne.
It is important that the reader is reminded of the genesis of the greedy quest by the Fulani to colonize Nigeria and subjugate all ethnic nationalities, the unaccomplished job of their priest, Usman Dan Fodio, and his apparition, which his descendants are determined to fulfill:
Restoring Igbo values to the Igbo Nation Worldwide – made up of Igbo in Igboland and in the Diaspora across the world – in readiness for the reassertion of Igbo statehood cut short in 1970.
“In this apparition Fodie was informed that the whole of that beautiful country around them, with all its populous towns and countless villages, belonged to the believers in the prophet, to wit the Phula; and that it was Fodie’s divine commission, with the help of the faithful, to wrest all those flowery plains, fruitful hill, and those lovely valleys, from the hand of the Kafirs, and then to bring all the Kafirs into subjection to the Islam, and to devote to the sword everyone who refused to believe.”
West African Countries and Peoples James Africanus Horton (1868) The late Sultan of Sokoto, Ahmadu Bello, embraced this greedy dream and most if not all Fulani leadership are gung-ho, about a mission that they believe is Allah ordained:
“The new nation called Nigeria should be an estate of our great grandfather Uthman Dan Fodio. We must ruthlessly prevent a change of power.
“We use the minorities in the North as willing tools and the South as a conquered territory and never allow them to rule over us and never allow them to have control over their future.” – Ahmadu Bello
Below are a few excerpts that explain the mindset of the Fulani leadership:
“If you don’t implement Shariah your faith became questionable.” – Umaru Dikko.
“There is nothing like my position as a former Head of State. This is an issue of Sharia and so it should rather be my position as a Muslim. I am a Muslim.” – Major-General Muhammadu Buhari
“By the way, whether one likes it or not, Muslims are in the majority in this country. So no going back on Sharia now.” – President Alhaji Shehu Shagari
Over the years, the descendants of Usman Dan Fodio have remained and stayed true to these sentiments.
The task of conquering and incorporating the remaining regions of the failed country as parts of their Fulani caliphate has remained the hidden strategy.
