Check influx of foreign herdsmen, investigate criminal group in Kebbi, Niger – Miyetti Allah to Buhari

The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, has urged the President Buhari-led government to leverage on the ECOWAS transhumance certificate protocol, to check the influx of herdsmen from neighbouring countries.

The group also called on the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) to distinguish its name (Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria) with that of a newly registered organisation bearing the same Miyetti Allah.

MACBAN also wants the federal government to take immediate action against a local criminal gang known as “Yansakai” operating majorly in Kebbi and Niger States and who, according to them{MACBAN) are involved in wanton killings.

“The meeting also appealed to the Federal Government to take immediate action against local criminal gangs known as ‘Yansakai’ in Kebbi and Niger states, who are involved in wanton killings of 153 innocent pastoralists.”

Fulani herdsmen have been accused of involvement in criminal offences against their host communities across the country, leading to several eviction notices against them.

Many communities in the South have recently issued eviction notices to Fulani communities in the region.

MACBAN made the demands after a meeting with the Chairman of its Board of Trustees and the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III.
