The Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III has again come to the defense of the Fulani race by stating that they are neither terrorists or bandits.
He stated this while giving a speech during a courtesy visit to the management and staff of National Hajj Commission (NAHCON) in Abuja on Wednesday, February 24.
“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.”
