Popular standup comedian, Alibaba, has said Fulani herdsmen are the most powerful group in Nigeria.
He noted that they were the only ones who could kill, burn down villages and walk away without being arrested and prosecution.
According to him, Fulani herdsmen are more powerful than oil and gas magnates as they can do whatever they wish and get away with it.
On his Instagram page @alibabagcfr, the Comedian shared a picture of a Fulani herdsman grazing his cows and wrote:
“These are the new power brokers…. not those in oil and gas.
“If anyone in oil and gas sends anyone to beat up… not kill… just beat up, they will see what is called the long arm of the law.
“These guys? Powerful. They can walk all over your cassava farm, burn down your houses, raze down a village, kill the villagers… and walk off.”
Alibaba also insisted that the Fulani herdsmen are more powerful than the security agencies[highlight][/highlight][highlight][/highlight].
“And they only carry a stick. Just a stick. If you say who is is more powerful, security agencies or theses cattle rearers… heads or tail… herdsmen!!!”
