As controversies continue over attacks by suspected Fulani herdsmen across the country, the Nigerian presidency has revealed that Muhammadu Buhari’s predecessor, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, is the life patron of the Miyetti Allah.
The revelation was made by Lauretta Onochie, one of the spokespersons of President Buhari, who also released a certificate as confirmation.
In a tweet, she said: “True, Miyetti Allah denied crimes, but Lo and behold who is its real Life Patron?
"True, Miyetti Allah denied crimes, but Lo and behold who is its real Life Patron? It's Reno Omokri's erstwhile boss, Goodluck Jonathan. So should we now say Jonathan was behind the incessant & condemnable attacks which predated Pres. @MBuhari's Administration?"- @AliyuAbdullahA pic.twitter.com/xS25ATfXzI

It’s Reno Omokri’s erstwhile boss, Goodluck Jonathan. So should we now say Jonathan was behind the incessant and condemnable attacks which predated President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration?”
CURRENT NEWS NOW.com earlier reported how Paul Unongo, the chairman of the Northern Elders Forum (NEF), recently accused former Vice President Atiku Abubakar of being a major sponsor and most influential member of the Miyetti Allah cattle breeders association of Nigeria, which is known as the highest body of Fulani herdsmen in the country.
The report said Paul called on Atiku Abubakar, a prince of the Tiv Court, to caution the herdsmen, who are responsible for the murder of countless number of people in the country.
