Coordinator of the benue kingdom chapter of miyetti allah farm animals breeders association of nigeria (macban), an umbrella body of fulani herdsmen in nigerian, alhaji garius gololo, has found out why his humans worship cows.
Speaking in an interview with saturday sun, gololo said aside from god, herdsmen also worship anything is their predominant supply of livelihood.
“why gained’t you worship what you’re gaining from? They worship god, however they rely on their cow. If you need to marry, it’s from that cow; if you are going to the clinic, it’s from that cow, in case you want to consume, it’s from that cow.
“so, for people to mention fulani worship cows, its clear; they ought to, as it’s from it they eke a residing. Fulani does not need road, they don’t want energy, and they don’t need a huge house. They live with the cow. However now in nigeria, now not best benue, humans are in opposition to herdsmen.
“in a place like zamfara, it’s not herdsmen; it’s miles criminals as opposed to criminals. Recently, i used to be in zamfara once they fought. There are no greater herdsmen in zamfara due to the fact they all ran away with the cattle due to incessant assaults after the go back of a notorious criminal and participants of his gang who terrorized them.
