Fulani socio – cultural organisation , Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore , has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to place the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar , under security watch ahead of next month ’ s elections .
In a communiqué issued at the end of an emergency meeting and signed by Miyetti Allah Kautal National President , Alhaji Abdullahi Bodejo , and the National Secretary , Saleh Alhassan , the group said the former Vice- President was capable of destabilising the country .
The group lambasted Atiku for saying that killings by herdsmen would continue if Buhari is re -elected .
The statement read in part , “ We appeal to President Muhammad Buhari to instruct the security agencies to monitor Atiku Abubakar considering his volatile and inciting statement he made against the herders .
“ His statement as a Presidential candidate is capable of destabilising the country especially considering that he is currently surrounded by anarchist and hate speech merchants feeding on the lucrative industry of fake news and ethic irredentism. ”
Although the group did not endorse Buhari outright , it called on all its members across the country to launch a massive campaign against the PDP candidate .
Miyetti Allah also slammed former President Olusegun Obasanjo for endorsing Atiku .
It said Atiku was not worthy of being called a Fulani leader and called on the Lamido of Adamawa to strip him of all his titles .
