Monday January 22, 2018 – ISIS West Africa Fighters Now Operating In Nigeria As Fulani Herdsmen – DSS

Bishop David Oyedepo’s warning message for Nigeria about herdsmen menace has been finally confirmed by security agencies.

On Sunday, security agencies in the country said a network of Islamic State West militants operating in the South-South and North Central states have been uncovered.

A source in the Presidency said the group had been operating under the guise of Fulani herdsmen.

ISWA is also believed to be recruiting young men into their fold and killing innocent people, thereby creating tension along ethnic, religious and regional fault lines.

It was gathered that “a good number “of the Islamic State terrorists have been arrested not only in the Benue valley but significantly in many towns in Edo State, such as Akoko Edo, Okpella and Benin, the state capital. They have also been found in Okene in central Kogi State.

The source said:

“Security service organisations, including the Department of State Service, (DSS) in a report submitted to President Muhammadu Buhari, identified an Islamic State in West Africa network operating within some North Central and South-South areas”

The source said the discovery was made following the arrest of many suspected attackers made up of Fulani herdsmen, government-sponsored militias, militants and other miscreants in Benue State.

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the “sensitivity” of the matter, said among those in custody were many who spoke Nigerian languages.

“They mostly speak the French. This is the first time that security officials have confirmed that Islamic State in West Africa members are operating as a unit in Nigeria and the level of their penetration of the country.”

“It is understood that the cell, which has members in different parts of the country concentrates on recruiting young men to fight for the Islamic State in West Africa by unleashing the cold-blooded murder of innocent citizens.

“There was intelligence that they had planned attacks in the country, before and during Christmas and the New Year festivities. Their bombing targets included fuel depots, foreign missions, the police and military establishments.

“Their network is very wide. But so much was achieved by the DSS, which made a significant number of arrests in the last two months that helped to preempt those attacks. This helped to save Nigeria from the spate of major terrorist attacks witnessed elsewhere that were syndicated by ISIS worldwide.”

“We are learning more and more about this complex and sophisticated network. This is the main reason why the secret service is not parading those suspects so far arrested. It has become clear to us, by now, that the challenge facing this country is a serious one.”

  1. so these are the monsters behind the recent bloodshed.
    It is now making sense. Sorry if we all abused fulanis

    • Sorry for what?u beleived the lies of this govt.people from niger sneaks thru the border and well aided by the conspirators.niger speak french and we all kn that.the silence of this president is shocking.with all these killings onon daily basis,he sealed his lips.people should protest nation wide and worldwide especially people in diaspora marching infront of our embassies all over the globe.

    • Are you this gullible?!
      This story is just a means of shifting attention from the actual perpetrators of evil. Is it ISWA that goes about harvesting people’s cassava and farm produce to feed cows?
      Even if it is ISWA or whatever the hell their name is, why is it so convinient to hide under herdsmen to perpeprate acts of terror? A Fulani lawmaker was still saying rubbish in the chamber when she said the way God created them, they can die for their cows. You think these people dont know what they are doing?
      Pls dont fall for these cheap stories that have no backbone. Nigeria is at the brink of collapse. Was Don waney and his gang part of their plan? Arms proliferation has become a reality that the nation has to deal with but unfortunately, the leaders are busy stashing money and telling the masses to go to hell. Wake up Nigeria, whether ISWA or herdwmen, they are terrorists with only one agenda, to steal, kill and destroy, because they are of their father the Devil.

  2. What i am reading here is half truth, the government of Nigeria under the leadership of fake Buhari, a.k.a Jilbril invited and sponsoring those terrorist for their holy war,they are doing everything to Islamize Nigeria by force.
    Let people of Nigeria with good conscience wake up, Nigeria masses will soon realize who Nnamdi Kanu is and what all his messages represents, MAYBE you did not agree with his style,but you will soon understand his point.

    Last year,they went to Church in OZUBULO and massacred worshipers,the government of Obiano diffused it as drug war between gang members.
    This government of Buhari and his militias in the name of Nigeria army went and massacred as many as they could in Umuahia and other part of the SE,proscribed the only voice (IPOB) that is questioning the motives of Nigeria government.
    Recently,the same government mercenaries committed the atrocities in Benue.

    In all these happening,one does not need a prophet to tell their motive, as their game plan is about to be decoded,they are now blaming the ISIS….whatever happens, BIAFRAS must defend their land.

  3. THE INFORMATION GIVEN Here may be true because personally, I have been wondering lately about how a core fulani herdsman who cannot even write his name in English words would suddenly become an expert commando in operating an AK47 and other dangerous weapons and start killing innocent souls just like that.

    Though, this allegation has not in any way twafted the insinuation of the ground plot of muslims attempting to use different means to islamize the country.

    The question then is, even with the heavy presence of our Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) Nigeria Custom Service (NCS), and other border control security services, how did all these bloodthirsty Mercenaries easily gain entrance into the country and under what guise and what‘s their purpose of coming here?

    I take a stroll…

  4. This is malicious lies formulated by the federal government to prevent the Fulani herds men from prosecution. Let the federal government stop their cheap lies incapable of ending the endless bloodbath perpetrated against innocent Nigerians by the marauders. Time and again the association of fulani herders in Nigeria which the president is patron of have vehemently reiterated they would mobilize their members to not just resist any attempt to prevent them access to open grazing in any state but to engage in more bloodshed of innocent civilians. they claimed the constitution of the country grant every nigerians the right to move and dwell in any part of the country and so preventing them from going about their businesses peacefully and within the confine of the constitution will be strictly opposed. The question is, where did the federal government hide all these report? Another influential and eminent figure from the northern part of the country who is also part of the herds men association once defended Fulani’s right to using arms in the public while herding their cows in the field. Therefore, another question begging for answer is, does it now mean the fulani herds men are another constitutionally approved military forces we have in Nigeria that should have access to arms by law? The truth is, we should not be tempted to stoop so low and accept the federal government utterances that is well coated with terrible lies. The fact is, the association of Fulani herds men in Nigeria named (Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders) are systematically hiring and arming their youngsters, willing members from other countries and from all part of the country into a militia to spread carnage and fear of terror among Nigerias dwelling in their indigenous lands. Why haven’t the federal government come up with this findings right from 2015 when this killings gained momentum? Why should it be when the world attention is now set to looking into the intensified mayhem of slaughters ongoing in the country that the federal government now come up with senseless and fake report to conceal the bloodthirsty fulanees from prosecution? The administration has no fear of God. Regardless of the nonsense they want us to belief, my advice to each state and their government under threat by the Fulanees is that, they should buckle up and respond in kind should they come under attack by the outlawed Fulani herds men and not wait for the main conspirator-the federal government-before they can protect their people.

  5. WHO IS FOOLING WHO? NIGERIANS THIS IS A CLEAN LIE, IF THE ISIS ARRIVES IN NIGERIA TODAY, YOU NEED NOT TO BE TOLD BY ANY BODY, THIS KILLERS ARE PURE FULANI HERDSMEN, THE ARE NIGERIANS AND FEW FROM NIGER REPUBLIC.
    YESTERDAY ONE OF THE LEADERS OF FULANI HERDMEN WAS INTERVIEWED BY SAM OMOTASY ON THE PROGRAM THE ‘PLAT FOAM,’ FROM THE WAY THE MAN IS SPEAKING, YOU WILL KNOW THAT THEY KILLERS BEAR NO REGRATE, THE MAN INSISTED THAT THEIR PEOPLE ARE BEEN KILLIED AND MEADIA IS NOT REPORTING WHY ALL THIS NOISES ABOUT THE BEANUE KILLINGS, NO IF YOU LISTEN TO THE INTERVIEW YOU WILL UNDERSTAND MORE AND BELIEVE THAT THEY WILL STILL KILL MORE.HE SAID THAT THE FULANIS DON’T FORGIVE, BUT ON MORE PRESSURE FROM MR SAM, THE MAN SAID THAT THEY CAN FORGIVE BUT WILL NOT FORGET, THEN TELL ME WHERE THE ISIS IS BURNING FARM LANDS.GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE TRUTHFUL TO HER CITIZEN TO AVOID SECURITY LAPSES.
