The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba Abdulrasheed Adewale Akanbi, Telu I, has disclosed that Nigerians of Fulani extraction residing in his domain are not terrorists.

The traditional ruler made this disclosure during an unscheduled visit to some Fulani settlements within Iwo land on Friday.

Oba Akanbi noted that there were beautiful Fulani children in his domain and that he was going to re-orientate the ones amongst them who had chosen a criminal path.

He maintained that the criminal elements amongst them were formed as a result of decades of neglect in the Southwest.

According to him, “When you do not care about people living in abject poverty around you, without helping or checking that girl child coming out of the forest selling local cheese and those small boys rearing cattle from 6 a.m till evening.”

“If someone resides in the forest for so long, there is possibility that they may start behaving irrationally if not properly put in check”, he added.

He charged the Fulani to see everybody as their brother’s keeper as this would enhance good neighbourliness.
