A Nigerian journalist has recently written an article on the state of morality within the socio-political power structure of Nigeria, writing that the Fulani — Nigerian cow herders who, having an elitist mentality because they have Arab blood — will slaughter farmers when they try to stop their cows from trampling their hard earned crops. The article, published on the Eagle, states:
Elnathan John, author of the best-selling fiction, Born On A Tuesday, once said the greatest disservice anyone can do to himself as a Nigerian is to be poor. He was right; the survival kit in Nigeria is not filled with patriotism, truthfulness and being forthright. You don’t have to be peace-loving or enthusiastic about development, no matter what you do, don’t just be poor!But if providence has not “smiled” on you yet and your hustle, no matter how legal or illegal it is, has not paid off, try as much as possible to build a formidable network with those in the corridors of power, especially if you do not reside in the city but in remote villages in Benue, Kaduna, Taraba, Adamawa and so on. Failure to do this interpretes to a death sentence, one you might not escape from.If you have the right network, you and your colleagues can go to any village and farm, ransack the entire area, rape the occupants, machete the residents, butcher toddlers, kill pregnant women and slice open the fetus, chop-off the head of the children and burn their houses for daring to chase your cows from their farms.
