Some Interesting Details About The Fulanis by nairaway(m) : 6:21 pm On Aug 07



One of the most malign ethnic groups in Nigeria is the Fulanis of Northern Nigeria. The news that makes headlines about them are their clashes with farmers. Thus, many Nigerians have the wrong perception about them.

They are the biggest nomadic people in the world
There is no argument that Fulanis are the biggest nomadic people in the world. According to research, around 13 million of the 20 million Fulani people are nomads They are born nomads as they walk for kilometres with their cattle in search of food and water.

They have a unique and colourful dress culture
If you see a Fulani man or woman, you can instantly identify them by the way they dress. For instance, in Nigeria, men sometimes wear a hat with three tips on it while the women adorn their hair with shells or use henna to decorate their hands and feet.

The Fulani language is spoken across Africa
The Fulani language is spoken in over 15 African countries. It is also one of the major languages spoken in Nigeria. Hence, it is essential to note that Fulanis are not present only in Nigeria.

They practice Islam
Most Fulanis are followers of Islam. This should not be a surprise to anyone as they are from a part of Nigeria where Islam is the dominant religion.

Their livelihood is weaved around cattle
Fulanis are very dependent on cattle. Every Fulani no matter their status in the society 'must' own cattle.
