FULL TEXT OF FFK’S INTERVIEW ON THE FULANI INVASION OF NIGERIA, THEIR HISTORY,  THEIR INTENTIONS, MUHAMMADU BUHARI AND UMAR MUHAMMED LABDO (PART 3). 

QUESTION 13.
When you said ‘originally not part of us’ in your essay, who are the people that you meant by ‘us’? Which tribes should be considered as original owners of Nigeria?
ANSWER TO QUESTION 13.
Every single tribe in the country apart from the Fulani can be considred as the original owners and I said that only in the context that the Fulani only arrived in our shores 220 years ago.
I did not say they are not Nigerians. What I said was that they joined us later than others and unlike the rest of us they were not originally from here.
QUESTION 14.
It appears that there is Fulani-phobia in Nigeria now. What do you think is responsible for that? Is it the attacks by suspected Fulani herdsmen on host communities, villages and farms or what?
ANSWER TO QUESTION 14.
It is much deeper than that and it is very real. You need to look at what has been happening to this country over the last 100 years since the amalglamation and over the last 57 years since independence to understand it.
Things are about to explode and Buhari, who sees himself as the third Mahdi  and the reincarnation of Usman Dan Fodio and Sir Ahmadu Bello all rolled into one, has made matters worse.
I do not hate the Fulani and as a matter of fact one eight of the blood that runs through my veins is Fulani blood because my maternal great grandmother was a pure-blooded Fulani woman from Sokoto. However  the bitter truth is that their leaders and their people have not been fair to the rest of Nigeria.
We want a nation in which everyone is equal and not one of masters and slaves. We are not interested in a nation where some are more equal than others.
They have other ideas and we cannot allow that. We would rather go to war and break the country than have that. My Yoruba forefathers were never slaves and I will not see my people or my lineage and offspring enslaved. Whilst I live I shall resist those that seek to enslave me, my children and my lineage with everything I have got.
Even if I am killed or die in the struggle at least they will know and history will record that I lived for something and that I died fighting for the cause of freedom and libety of my people and their furue.
That is what real men and real leaders are meant to do and I am happy to do it. As long as their is life and breath in me I will never stop. It is my calling.
This inordinate desire and long term Fulani aspiration of conquering the whole of Nigeria and dipping the Koran in the Atlantic ocean cannot work.
It will be resisted. And those that wish to do it must desist from trying before the whole thing explodes in their faces.
I say again it will be resisted. And the more they try to impose it the more resistance they will meet.
I predicted conflict a while back and all that is going on today does not surprise me because I said it would happen if they were given power. Go and read my essays over the last 30 years and especially over the last 5 years.
They have obviously reached a decisive stage in a plan long prepared. A plan that  has economic and social facets as much as political.
They are following a script long prepared. Large bodies of armed men cannot be roaming the country freely without the intervention of security agencies if there is no high level complicity.
If you ask me why they are doing it the answer is simple and clear: it is what the Nazis called the quest for “Lebensraum” (meaning “living space”).
It is an economic programme of inheriting as much land with as few people as possible left on them. The desertification is driving them southward. Increasing population, dwindling resources.  It was bound to happen with our planlessness.
Even Rwanda genocide had an economic aspect to it. Rwanda and Burundi are one of the most densely populated places in Africa.
Lack of planning over the decades is the cause. Apart from Awolowo, Houphouet-Boigny, Bourguiba,, Nkrumah and Nyerere, African leaders, including Mandela, had neither strategic vision nor a clear plan for resolving the challenges facing us.
Awolowo suggested incorporating secession clause into our constitution at the 1954 Constitutional Conference. Sadly it was oppposed primarily by thr north and it failed.
Had it been entrenched in our constitution we may have avoided the first civil war and the second one which I am praying will never come.
QUESTION 15.
Some people have been saying that it appears that Fulani people want to colonise the whole of Nigeria. Where do you think that is coming from? Why would people say that?
ANSWER TO QUESTION 15.
They are saying it because it is true and because it is real and both Labdo and Buhari have proved that.
Every single one of the 19 security, military and intelligence agencies and formations in the country today except for the position of the Chief of Naval Staff and the Chief of Defence Staff is headed by a northern Muslim.
It has never happened before in our history. Again every leading key officer in NNPC today is a northern Muslim . I could go on and on.
Let me share something with you that a friend of mine who is a Governor of one of the northern states said which really worried me. I wont mention his name but I will tell you what he said. He said,
“Boko Haram has been rebranded into herdsmen but Nigerians are unaware. The Fulani Caliphate in collaboration with Chad, Niger, and Mali have orchestrated a deadly plan on Nigerians and their land. The Federal Government, the Presidency and the Fulani elders, including the Emir, are all part of it. The cattle colony is a pretext. Chad, Niger, and Mali are presently on a full-scale invasion of Nigerian territory. Nigerians must rise against it. The Federal Government now works with Boko Haram to kill citizens. I am an APC member but I must tell you this government has failed the people”.
His words worried me because I am a man of peace and I abhor violence. Yet every day now we see nothing but violence as our people are being slaughtered. Just last tuesday the commander of SARS in Saki, Oyo state was cut to pieces with matchets by Fulani terrorists. Where will it stop?
No-one is safe yet our President says and does nothing except to say we must not retaliate, we must not defend ourselves and we must live peacefully with our killers and accomodate them. What does that tell you?
And he is a Fulani like them and he is also the life patron of Miyetti Allah their umbrella organisation. How do you expect us to feel? Of course we feel like an endangered species.
We are being sent like lambs to the slaughter and we are told that we cant defend ourselves even though the government refuses to defend or protect us.
Worse still our Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo, who is clearly out of his depth and totally overwhelmed by all these challenges, says we should pray for the Fulani terrorists as they are killing our loved ones whilst at the same time he says we must crush the Igbos that belong to Nnamdi Kanu’s IPOB who we have much in common with us, who have done us no harm, who are being persecuted and butchered and who never killed our people, raped our women, stolen our land or burnt our homes and farms.  What strange madness is this?
And this man calls himself a Christian and a Pastor? Has he no conscience? Does he fear Buhari more than he fears God? It really is a shame. It is a tragedy.
And the truth is that every word that my Governor friend said above is true. He has spoken courageously and at great risk to his life and that of his family. I commend him for that.
QUESTION 16.
How did it all come to this? How did iy get so bad? How come we did not see it coming?
ANSWER TO QUESTION 16.
Most Nigerians did not see it coming but I and a few others did.
WE WARNED the Nigerian people that it would come to this. I saw all this coming in 2015 and when I spoke out about it I became a marked man. The system resolved to discredit and destroy me for speaking the truth.
As a conseqirnce of all I said and all my warnings II received nothing but insults, politically-motivated criminal charge, 3 months of incarceration,  ruthless persecution of not just myself but also my family members including my beautiful young wife Precious.
We have been put through hell and are still going through hell but we have never complained or relented in our quest for fairness, truth, good governance and justice and in our attempt to stand against the evil tide and calamity that has befallenn and overwhelmed our people and our nation.
I was even assaulted by a young and depraved northern muslim jihadist security agent for “praying and reading  my bible for too long” when I was in one of my spells in detention.
On another occassion I was locked up in the terrorist wing of a prison for a couple of weeks where they keep only Boko Haram convicts and suspects.
Can you imagine that? Can you believe it? I thank God for the professionalism, humanity and kindness of the prison warders otherwise it could have been worse.
Someone was hoping that the Boko Haram inmates would either maim me or take my life but God went ahead of me and they showed me nothing but respect and kindness.
I was put through all this not because I had done anything wrong but just to humiliate, disgrace, punish and intimidate me for simply telling the truth and speaking out against the evil that has befallen our nation. That is how wicked these peoole are.
Meanwhile innocent people are being killed everyday. And everything that I had warned about is unfolding before our very eyes and everyone is saying “Gosh FFK was right all along”.
Well I wish I had been wrong but one thing is clear: what lies ahead is far worse than anything that Nigeria has ever witnessed or seen before in its history.
If anyone thinks that the tiger that already has the goat between its teeth will give it up easily then they still don’t understand the nature of the beast that we are dealing with.
You must get this clear: it is not just about Buhari but about who and what he stands for and represents and they make no bones about it.
It is about conquest, rulership, power-show and the total and complete domination of every sphere of our life and existence by a small, hateful and slippery little ethnic group which considers itself superior to all others, which is racist in all its ways and which believes that it was born, destined and ordained by God to control and laud it over the rest of the 180 million people that make up the numerous ethnic nationalities of Nigeria.
You better not just pray but you must also get your PVC and your spiritual weapons of war out if you want to save Nigeria.
You had also better get ready to defend yourselves if and when you are attacked because the government has proved that it has NO interest in protecting you but rather in assisting your killers and oppressors to kill and oppress you.
It is not just about winning an election in 2019 but about saving your nation, your land, your faith, your famlly, your children and future generations of your lineage and loved ones from being humiliated, decimated, blighted, enslaved, pillaged, ethnically-cleansed, exterminated and completely wiped out by the most vicious, bloodthirsty, cunning, relentless and self-serving group of people that the African continent has ever seen or known.
It is about defending and protecting yourselves from a tiny race of ethnic aliens and itinerant vagrants who are hell-bent on subjugating our nation, milking dry its vast mineral and human resources and controlling them for their own benefit.
Take it or leave it, that is what is at stake. And if we fail to stop it now, a little down the line when the curtain comes down, all hell breaks lose and it finally happens, you will come back to me and once again say, “Gosh, if only we had listened! FFK was right all along!”
QUESTION 17.
The professor and National Chairman of Fulbe Development Association, Alhaji Ahmad Bello, have been quoted as saying that Fulani can never be defeated. What do you think about such claims?
ANSWER TO QUESTION 17.
It is historically untrue. The Yoruba defeated the Fulani in Osogbo and sent them back to the north. Though they got Ilorin as a consequence of the rebellion of the then Aare Ona Kakaanfo, Afonja,  who colluded with the Fulani leader Alimi and fought against his commander and traditional ruler, the Alafin of Oyo, the Yoruba have never been conquered by the Fulani or anyone else and neither will they ever be.
It is interesting to note that Afonja himself was later betrayed and killed by the Fulani Alimi who took the Ilorin throne for himself and got the backing of the Sultan of Sokoto. That is how Ilorin was lost to the Yoruba and became a Fulani Emirate till today.
Outside of that the Fulani have never been able to take one inch of Yoruba soil or defeat us in battle.
The truth is that we are slow to anger but irresistable in battle. They say that it is not the size of the dog in the fight but the size of fight in the dog.
Nobody wants to fight and neither do we want a war but it would be a grave error and griveous miscalculation on their part for the Fulani to “wake our sleeping sword lightly” (to use King Henry Vth’s words).
Wisdom dictates that we must all be restrained, sue for peace and try to talk our differences out like civilised people rather than exchange blows and indulge in violence.
However if full scale war is ever forced upon the Yoruba, the people of the south or indeed the people of the Middle Belt by any group of misquided or deluded adventurers who wish to conquer us all we will not run or shy away from it. It will be viewed and regarded as the final battle for our independence from our internal colonial masters.
They say hubris always comes before nemesis. Let this Fulani man and all those that think like him and make these threats keep talking and bragging that his people can never be defeated.
If, God forbid, armed conflict ever comes we shall put his boast to the test and I trust that God shall defend His own.
As the Leader of the Yoruba, Chief Obafemi Awolowo once said, “kaka ka dobale fun gambari ka kuku roju ku” (meaning, “we would rather die than bow and submit to the Fulani”).
Those words are as true today as they were when Awolowo spoke them.
