The Kaduna State branch of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) have confirmed that seven of their herdsmen were killed in Zangon-Kataf local government of the state in the last 5 days as a result of communal clash in the area last month. 

The state MACBAN’s Director of Media and Publicity, Ibrahim Bayero also said that they have lost about 850 of their cattles for similar reasons with the period. 

Bayero lamented that the attack on Fu-la-ni continues to happen unabated despite various peace efforts initiated by concerned stakeholders of the three waring factions Atyap Chiefdom and the neighboring environment. 

Addressing news men yesterday, the body condemned the attack on Fu-la-ni and said they can no longer sit down and watch their people being attacked. 

According Bayero who spoke on behalf of the association, he described the attack as provocative, and deliberate and criminal acts capable of endangering more chaos to the entire Southern Kaduna.

“We hereby condemn the killings and the wanton destruction of the wealth of innocent F-ul-ani persons perpetrated by the Atyap communities in Zangon-Kataf and other surrounding areas." he said.

The association has called on the concern authorities to fetch out the people behind the evil act.
