The fourth deadliest known terrorist group has been named as the Fulani militant group operating in Nigeria and parts of the Central African Republic.
The little-known group, formed of individuals from the semi-nomadic pastorial ethnic group Fula people existing across several West African nations, has seen a dramatic escalation of its activities in the past year.

In 2013, the Fulani killed around 80 people in total – but by 2014 the group had killed 1,229.
Operating mainly in the middle belt of Nigeria, opposed to the north which is dominated by Boko Haram, the group recorded 847 deaths last year across five states, and has also been knonw to stage attacks in the Central African Republic (CAR), according to the latest report from the Global Terrorism Index.

Little is known about the group, despite the high toll they are inflicting on local civilian populations, but it is supposed the increased instability in CAR and Nigeria - despite some government successes against militant groups - has facilitated the group's expansion.

As much as 92 per cent of their attacks target private citizens, reflecting the group’s primary concern over the ownership of farmland. Each attack claims an average of 11 lives, with the largest known in April 2014 killing as many as 200 people after a group of the militants targeted community leaders and residents during a meeting in central province Zamfara.
In the past year Nigeria has experienced the greatest increase in deaths from terrorism, with 7,512 deaths reported – an increase of over 300 per cent – most of which have been claimed by Boko Haram.

  1. My advice to Biafrans in this matter is that they should check among their citizens particularly those who were kidnapped by Nigerian army from the IPOB praying ground at Ngwa High School in Aba. Has all of them been released? If not, IPOB should go and check where they are being held if they are still alive and their number complete. This is because it could be that the Nigerian army has killed them and secretly buried them in that forest and arranged with Buhari's DSS to use them to frame up IPOB, this is a most likely situation in this case. You can be sure that those people buried in that forest are not hausas neither are they strangers from other tribes. If they were hausas, their people would have complained about their missing persons before now. The Biafrans might think that their people arrested and taken away by Nigerian army might be in detention somewhere not knowing that they have been killed and secretly buried, I will doubt so much if this is not what has happened in this case. MAY GOD SAVE BIAFRA AND BIAFRANS.
