Kogi Speaker Reacts As ‘Herdsmen’ Kill Kogi Head Of Hunters
 

The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has urged Nigerians to stop calling all Fulani herdsmen criminals.

The group made this known in an Eid el-Kabir message on Sunday.

The Chairman of MACBAN, South-East Zone, Alhaji Gidado Siddiki stated that it was wrong to use “criminal infiltrators” to reach a conclusion that all herders were criminals.

“I most heartily share the warm goodwill message of Eid-el Kabir to the entire Muslim Ummah, the governments and good people of the South-East of Nigeria,” he said.

“I sincerely plead for better understanding in information peddling, so as to avoid the often misinformation, half-truths and outright falsehood that the gullible public very often gets fed with.

“I plead with the governments, traditional and religious leaders, as well as other influential groups in the South-East not to relent in their advocacy for peaceful coexistence amongst Nigerians wherever they choose to live and ply their legitimate businesses.”
