Governor Abdullahi Sule has urged the leaders of the Fulani community in Nasarawa State to use their internal vigilante to fish out criminal elements giving the Fulani community a bad name.

 The governor made the appeal when he had a stopover on his way to Abuja to meet with Alhaji Abdullahi Bello Bodejo, National President, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore Fulani Sociocultural Association, at his residence in Tudun Wada, Karu Local Government Area.

He said it had become necessary for him to interface with the leadership of the Fulani community in the state with a view to seeking their support towards tackling insecurity across the state and country at large.

He pointed out that following information received from the Federal University of Lafia (FULAFIA), where armed gunmen kidnapped one student last Monday night, it had become necessary to call on the Fulani community to deploy its internal vigilante group to fish out criminal elements giving the community a bad name.

Sule, however, commended the peaceful nature of the Fulani community in the state but blamed the criminal tendency on strangers invading the state to commit crime.

Responding, Alhaji Bodejo said the Fulani community coexist peacefully with the diverse ethnic groups in the state.
