Is There a Connection Between Fleeing  Bokoharam Members and Fulani Herdsmen?

Published

With origins in the Senegambia region, the Fulani now stretch across some 20 states in West Africa and the Sahel belt, ranging from Guinea-Conakry to Sudan. Though the Fulani herders once existed in a symbiotic relationship with sedentary agriculturalists in this region (involving the fertilization of fields by cattle who fed on the vegetative debris left over after crops had been taken in and the exchange of meat and milk for grain and other agricultural products), this relationship has been disturbed in recent years by environmental changes that have driven the herders further south, massive growth in the size of Fulani herds, the growth of practices such as agro-pastoralism, the expansion of farmland into traditional corridors used by the herders and the general collapse of customary conflict-resolution methods.

Many Fulani now tend to reach for automatic weapons to resolve disputes with agricultural communities. This has in turn led to the development of “self-defense” forces in the agricultural communities and the growth of cattle-rustling. Vigilante groups are often more trusted than the Nigerian security forces, which are often suspected of collusion with the herders and/or Boko Haram. Farmers routinely accuse the Fulani herders of allowing their animals to feed on still-growing crops and contamination of community watering-places. The rape of non-Fulani women by herders is also identified as a growing source of conflict and prevents women from carrying out traditional and necessary roles in gathering food and water. The herders in turn accuse the farmers of denying them access to grazing areas when alternatives cannot be found.

Reports of Boko Haram members (who are mostly members of the Kanuri ethno-cultural group) disguising themselves as Fulani herdsmen while carrying out attacks in rural Nigeria are common. In recent weeks, Nigerian security forces have claimed that some groups of semi-nomadic Fulani herdsmen engaged in bitter and bloody conflicts with farmers in several Nigerian states are actually composed of members of Boko Haram.  Though many of these reports may be attempts to deflect responsibility from Fulani herders for attacks on sedentary farming communities throughout north and central Nigeria, even the perception that the Fulani herdsmen have joined forces with Boko Haram could propel Nigeria into a new and devastating civil war.

What is the meaning of corona virus? Many of you are asking and frantically searching for an answer well here is a comprehensive background Information of this deadly virus.

Coronavirus is an outbreak of disease that started in Wuhan one of the central Chinese cities it’s caused by a novel coronavirus that means it’s brand-new so new that actually it doesn’t have a name yet it’s from a family called the corona viruses the symptoms of this illness are pretty mundane on the face of it it’s a dry cough fever and then breathing problems it seems quite mild in lots of people and probably those people don’t end up in hospital at all we only know about the more severe cases which is where people have gone on to develop viral pneumonia and those people obviously end up in hospital and all the deaths have been amongst those people this brand new corona virus came from animals and it’s believed that the source was actually a seafood market in Wuhan which also sells wild animals so far as far as we know all the cases have come out of Wuhan so some of these people are in places like Thailand and Japan but they haven’t picked it up there they actually got it in Wuhan and then they traveled in China where the most cases are it’s older people who are ending up in hospital with this they’re usually over 40 and the very youngest person diagnosed is about 13 or 14 years old so it doesn’t appear to be affecting small children and those who have died tend actually to have underlying conditions as they say they they’re frail they may have heart disease or cancer already and so they’re vulnerable basically their immune systems are not very robust and they’re going to find it very hard to fight off a virus we’ve only just discovered that the new corona virus is actually transmitted from one person to another it was hoped at first actually that it just came from animals as all corona viruses do but now it looks as though it is actually passed from one human being to another so we’ve got people-to-people transmission because the markets been closed for some time and there are cases in people who’ve never been near it so there actually isn’t any treatment at the moment at all because this is a virus antibiotics won’t work that they only work against bacteria not viruses so really you want to know antiviral treatment but none of the flu drugs that we’ve got we have got a couple of those will work on this a corona virus is different from a flu virus so there actually isn’t any treatment at the moment at all this one is scary because it is a brand new virus so we don’t know how it’s going to behave but I have to say we perhaps ought to put it in the context of some of the other things healthcare workers trooped  to Sierra Leone to cover the West Africa outbreak of Ebola and that was killing more than half of all those people who were infected SARS which was a novel coronavirus just like this one back in 2002 did it end up causing a global panic and that was largely because nobody had ever seen it before but also the death rate was at around 10% well here so far we’re talking about a death rate of 2% which is a lot less and it does look as if many of those people actually have had underlying health problems which would make it more likely that they would die they could equally have died of flu so you have to put it into that context I think
