Fulanis are not terrorists and bandits – Sultan of Sokoto

The Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III has again defended the Fulani race by stating that they are terrorists or bandits. 

The Sultan said this during a courtesy visit to the management and staff of National Hajj Commission (NAHCON) in Abuja on Wednesday, February 24. 

He 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.”
