Alhaji Siddiki Gidado, the South-East Chairman of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has claimed that most of the killings and kidnappings in the geo-political zone are not done by Fulani herdsmen.
This he said while speaking with newsmen, adding that although there might be a few bad Fulani herdsmen, most of the killings are been carried out by other cattle rearers.
According to him, they include; Shua Arabs, Kanuri, Igbo, Tiv and Jukun, who he noted, normally dress like Fulani and commit such offences.
“In every tribe, you have bad eggs and when some evil acts are carried out, the entire tribe is made to take the blame.
“Most killings are attributed to Fulani when they are not the culprits,” Gidado said.
The MACBAN leader in the South-East Zone, also appreciated the robust, cordial relationship between Miyetti Allah and South-East Governors.
