Muslim terrorists from the Fulani herdsmen group in Nigeria used machetes and firearms to massacre more than 200 people in a predominantly Christian region over a two day period in June, a testament to the group’s growing lethality that has far surpassed Boko Haram’s.
Breitbart News spoke to various analysts and experts who believe the Fulani are deserving of a sinister label beyond just “herdsmen.” The group carried out massacres across nearly a dozen villages in Nigeria’s Christian-majority Plateau state over the weekend of June 23-24, killing over 200 and bringing the number of total fatalities linked to the nomadic group to more than 500 this year alone.
The experts and analysts who spoke to Breitbart News agree that the Fulani are jihadis.
Dede Laugesen with Save the Persecuted Christians, a national coalition of Christian and Jewish faith leaders working to raise grassroots awareness in America about the mistreatment of Christ followers, noted, “Somehow the Fulani have gone from being recognized as the fourth most deadly terrorist group in 2015 to being simple ‘herdsmen.’ Why are ‘herdsmen’ armed with AK47s and who is arming them?”
