“Anyone, soldier or not, that kills the Fulani, takes a loan repayable one day no matter how long it takes.”
Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has said Fulani people will always take revenge whenever they suffer injustice.
The governor also said they do not argue with punishment meted out to them whenever they are justly convicted of a crime.
He said: “If a Fulani man dies in war, it is different. If a Fulani man is arrested by the authorities and convicted, it is not an issue. What the Fulani never forgets is when he is innocently targeted and killed and the authorities do nothing. He will never forget and he will come back for revenge. This is it.
“So, it is better to understand the context given the context of what I tweeted which had to do with an issue in Plateau State in 2012. I hope you get the context. So, it is not that Fulani will never forget. Anyone that goes through pain and sorrow either forgets or doesn’t forget but when it is extrajudicial, when it is extra-official, the attitude is completely different.
“This is the context in which Fulani never forgets. It is not in every context. As I said, I lost relations during the war. It doesn’t mean I still hold a grudge. We’ve moved past that.”OMOKOSHABAN
