All I know is he's reporter in Africa. I can't find anything about his actual religion.
The best way I can put it is this.
The Fulani https://www.britannica.com/topic/Fulani
Predominately Muslim, and obviously not all are Muslim. Have been Quarreling with the Christian farmers for a pretty long time. It's less a Religion vs Religion as Culture vs Culture, or Lifestyle vs Lifestyle issue.
To put it into another perspective, The Wild West Cowboys vs Farmer/Ranchers.
Cowboy: "We've been herding our cattle here for 70 years!"
Farmer: "I bought this land fair and square, this land is for my cattle!"
It's a tale as old as time.
One of the articles on a site like I posted, literally claimed that X Christian farmers were killed by Fulani Herders, when the Farmers actually did the killing of the herders. They also neglect to mention that both sides are tit-for-tat killing each other, and act like only the Herders are doing the killings. The BBC article at least mentions both sides killing each other.
I'm sure we aren't getting the full story either. But there's only so much we can gain from
