Emir of Dansadau Alhaji Hussaini Umar has appealed to Zamfara State government to save his domain from the deadly attacks on his people by the suspected Fulani herdsmen.
Speaking at the distribution of this year’s Zakkat and Endowment Funds in the emirate, the Emir alleged that there are groups of Fulani herdsmen who are now holding a series of meeting on how to launch fresh attacks on his people and they vowed never to stop the killings until certain conditions are met for them.
‘’They are not hidden; they are with us; that is why I am appealing to the state government to save the situation because there is one of them who is the leader of the gang and he is even popularly known among us and he is threatening to continue the killing’’ the emir said.
The emirate has witnessed a series of deadly attacks by the suspected Fulani herdsmen who were said to be retaliating what it is called “humiliating raids” on them by vigilante groups formed by the Hausa communities in the area. Alhaji Mande Kuraje, who is an elder in the Zamfara chapter of Miyetti Allah, said only round table discussions could solve the problems.
