Aside from the nuisance herdsmen and their cattle are believed to constitute in different parts of the country, so many people like Sunday igboho have accused them of killings and kidnapping.
While some are in support of Sunday igboho, others think other tribes are using Fulani herdsmen as a mask to carry out evil.
Over the years, we have witnessed the deaths of many Nigerians who were believed to have been killed by fulani herdsmen. Below are some Nigerians who were killed by gunmen suspected to be fulani herdsmen.
