National President of one of the umbrella bodies of herdsmen, the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Abdullahi Bello Bodejo has said he is about going to marry an Igbo girl from Enugu State and become an in-law to Igbo.
Bodejo disclosed this in an interview with a National daily, the Sun.
According to him, his firm belief in the country’s unity influenced his decision.
He also disclosed that his aunt was happily married to a Rivers State man, adding that the union is blessed with ten children, including Kate, Ndidi and Kingsley, amongst others.
His firm belief in Nigeria’s unity, he said was threatened by such directives as issued by Southern Governors banning open grazing in the region.
According to him, such negates the spirit of the constitution as envisaged by the country’s founding fathers, including Zik, Awo, Ahmadu Bello, etc.
He reiterated his position that the Fulani were not constrained by boundaries or borders and urged herdsmen to ignore the directive by the Governors and graze their cattle in any part of the country they find themselves.
