Some Nigerian soldiers have escorted Fulani herdsmen with their cows in Ijebu Ode, Ogun State as they defy open grazing despite the recent condemnation by southern governors.
In a viral video, some soldiers are seen in the video leading cows along Ijebu Ode Road, in Ogun State.
A bystander who captured it on his phone could be heard expressing his disappointment at the situation which he described as an ’embarrassment to Nigerian citizens.’
This is happening amid worsening insecurity that has seen thousands of Nigerians killed, wounded or displaced by terrorists or bandits in Northern Nigeria or kidnappers or suspected Fulani herders in Southern Nigeria.
“To my greatest surprise, I am in Ijebu Ode at the moment and I can see where soldiers are now leading the ‘troupe of Maluu’ (herd of cattle). Look at their vehicles, they are the ones leading Maluu (cattle) of (Muhammadu) Buhari’s Moto, Buhari’s properties. Look at the whole military men controlling Maluu.
“It is a big shock to me that (Nigerian) Army now has turned to be cattle rearers in Nigeria. Look at their Hilux following Maluu, courtesy of the President of Nigeria. It’s a big shock to me and an embarrassment to Nigerian citizens.
“Thank you God for making us alive to see this, Amen,” he added.
