Fulani will always revenge injustice, says el-Rufai

THE Fulani tribe always takes revenge whenever they suffer injustice, according to Governor Nasir el-Rufai, pointing out, however, that they also accept their fate whenever they are convicted of a crime.

The governor was speaking at a webinar organised by the Africa Leadership Group, where he was asked to clarify his tweet in 2012, in which he had stated: “Anyone, soldier or not, that kills the Fulani takes a loan repayable one day no matter how long it takes.”

El-Rufai was also specifically asked if the Igbo would be justified to take revenge on other Nigerians who killed them during the Biafran war.

In his response, the governor 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 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.”
