The Northern States Christian Elders Forum, NOSCEF, has warned the Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, over utterances capable of remarks that could endanger the unity of the nation.
This was contained in a statement yesterday by the chairman and secretary, Bishop Isaac Philip and David Ibi, in Jalingo, Taraba state.
NOSCEF criticized Mr Sanusi’s recent remarks, where he allegedly accused Governor Darius Ishaku and his Benue counterpart, Samuel Ortom, of training militias to confront the Fulani people in their states.
“We have not forgotten that the injurious statement made by the same emir Sanusi where he specially alleged that the Taraba State government masterminded the genocide against the Fulani on the Mambilla Plateau, Sardauna Local Government Area where over 800 were killed last year.
“The allegations by the Emir of Kano and his cohort are to aggravate the bloody crisis between the indigenous farmers and the herdsmen in the aforementioned two states.
“It is indeed curious and suspicious that emir, who is an avowed member of the Board of Trustees of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association worldwide, would be making spurious statements of such inflammable magnitude,” the document read in part.
