Miyetti Allah Cries Out Over Killing Of Cows And Herdsmen By Nigeria Army
The Nasarawa State chapter of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, MACBAN, has called on the military to arrest and prosecute its herdsmen involved in any form of crime. The branch chairman, Muhammed Hussein made the call while appealing to the military to stop killing their members.
Hussein expressed worries over the spate of attacks on its members. Addressing journalists in Lafia, the state capital, Hussein alleged that six herdsmen and 150 cows had been killed by suspected military personnel.
“If the military suspects any Fulani man for any crime, they should arrest and prosecute him and not to just kill him like that.
“I am not aware of what led to the attack but I was informed that some soldiers just invaded Fulani settlement and shot six of our people including a traditional title holder in the Fulani community.
“If you claim that the Fulani people committed a crime, how about the cows, what did the cows do that warranted the killing of 150 cows. What for?”
