A Nigerian pastor has warned that the government should take the issue of killer herdsmen more seriously.
Pastor Adewale Giwa has raised alarm over the activities of Fulani herdsmen in the country.
The Senior pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Christ Ministry described Fulani herdsmen as descendants of biblical Ishmael, the first son of Abraham.
Pastor Giwa said the herdsmen’s mission is to kill, rape and permanently destroy Nigeria.
Reacting to the activities of criminal Fulani herdsmen, Giwa urged Christians to read their bible in order to have a better understanding on what is currently befalling Nigeria.
A statement he signed and forwarded to DAILY POST said Ishmael was the first son of biblical Abraham through Hagar, the maidservant of Sarah.
However, Giwa pointed out that the Lord rejected Ishmael and placed a mark on him.
“The majority of Christians don’t study their bible and that is why they are being deceived by fake prophets or pastors today.
“Even when Ishmael was in his mother’s womb, the Lord had placed a mark on him. This mark looks like a curse and it follows his descendants anywhere they go.
“Many of you don’t know that Fulani herdsmen are descendants of Ishmael, and that is why their hands are against everyone.
“In Genesis 16:12, the angel of the Lord appeared to his mother, Hagar and told her that Ishmael would live in hostility toward all his brothers.
“Truly when Ishmael grew up, he was a bad influence on Isaac, the covenant child. So, Sarah, the mother of Isaac had to pressurize Abraham to send him and his mother away.
“General 21:20 tells us that Ishmael while living in the desert learned how to shoot a bow and arrow.
“Also, Genesis 25:13-15 lists Ishmael’s sons as Nebaioth, Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam, Mishma, Dumah, Massa, Hadad, Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah.
“Isiah 60:7 mentions the descendants of Nebaioth and Kedar as those who raise flocks. Fulani herdsmen have dominated and conquered West African countries.
“They enjoy laying hands on their fellow human beings; the only solution that can curb their activities is to separate them from normal human beings just like how Sarah sent Ishmael and his mother away.
“Fulani herdsmen are bad influences, they don’t like living with good people. Their attitudes are not same as normal human beings.
“When they rent a house from you, they would send you out and become landlords overnight.They want to take over everywhere.
“They came to kill, rape our women and destroy Nigeria. The worst part of it is that the security operatives are colluding with them to perpetuate evil.”
