Fulani socio-cultural organisation, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, has asked security agencies to keep Presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, Mr Atiku Abubakar, under surveillance ahead of next month’s elections.
In a communiqué issued at the end of an emergency meeting of the group signed by Miyetti Allah Kautal National President, Mr Abdullahi Bodejo, and National Secretary, Mr Saleh Alhassan, the body said the former Vice-President was capable of destabilising the country.
The group slammed Atiku for saying that killings by herdsmen would continue if President Muhammadu Buhari was re-elected.
The statement read in part, “We appeal to President Muhammadu Buhari to instruct security agencies to monitor Atiku Abubakar considering the volatile and inciting statement he made against herders.
“His statement as a presidential candidate is capable of destabilising the country, especially considering that he is currently surrounded by anarchist and hate speech merchants feeding on the lucrative industry of fake news and ethnic irredentism.”
The group called on all its members across the country to launch a massive campaign against Atiku.
Miyetti Allah also slammed former President Olusegun Obasanjo for endorsing Atiku.
