Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III, the Sultan of Sokoto has on Wednesday, February 24 defended the Fulanis by stating that they are not terrorists or bandits.
Speaking during a courtesy visit to the management and staff of the National Hajj Commission (NAHCON) in Abuja, the Sultan of Sokoto said;
“I have earlier stood on this; we are not terrorists and criminals. Of course, we have some bandits amongst us and it does not make a clan or the whole Muslims as criminals or bandits.
“I am a proud Fulani and if I were to come back in this world again after I am gone, which definitely I wound not, I will ask Allah to bring me back as a Fulani man. I am a proud Fulani man but I am not a criminal, bandit or terrorist.”
