Nigerians Urge Miyetti Allah to Take the Fight to Bandits Over Killing of Their Leaders in Nasarawa

Some Nigerians have urged the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) to take the fight to bandits who killed their leaders in Nasarawa State.

On Friday, suspected Fulani bandits killed the Nasarawa State Chairman of MACBAN, Alhaji Mohammed Hussaini, and the MACBAN Chairman of Toto Local Governent Area, Alhaji Mohammed Umar, at Garaku market, in Kokona Local Governent Area of the state.

Despite pleas by the State Governor, Abdullahi Sule, that reprisal attacks should be avoided, some Nigerians said the cattle breeders should take the fight to their kin in the forests.

They said, for long the association has justified killings by bandits and killer herdsmen and now that they have been dished the bitter bowl of soup Nigerians have been subjected to for years, they should not complain but take it in good faith or take the fight to the bandits.

Others opined that MACBAN itself has proven innumerable times of being capable of killings and it will be interesting to see how they will slug it out with the bandits.

Some commentators on the story however expressed fears that even doo the Police reported that the killings were carried out by Fulani bandits, they may lay the blame on innocent Christians and decide to attack them.

See some comments on the story by a National Daily, Vanguard, in which Governor Sule cautions against reprisals, below.
