The Fulani herdsmen have always been known to the people in West Africa due to their constant migration in search of green pastures for their cattle in various parts of this region. They are also known to be in possession of knives and cutlasses which is believed to be used for self defense in case of attacks while taking their cattle through various jungles while traveling by foot.
We would all agree that the law enforcement authorities often turn a blind eye to the dangerous knives of the Fulani Herdsmen because it’s considered as their way of life.
