The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), have sympathized with the family of Reuben Fasoranti, the Afenifere socio-cultural group’s President whose daughter was killed in an ambush on Friday afternoon.
Baba Uthman, the national security official of the cattle breeders’ union, in a statement on behalf of group berated those linking the murder incident to Fulani herdsmen without giving security agencies time to swing into action and unravel the perpetrators.
Commiserating with the Fasorantis over the loss of the daughter, Miyetti Allah said in its statement;
“As we express sincere heartfelt condolence to the family of the deceased, we are left in a deep shock on how a section of the media in collaboration with elements in the country that are held bane (sic) on using every opportunity available to them to fuel crisis as they continue the negative profiling of Fulanis for their total annihilation by jumping into a mischievous conclusion that she was killed by herdsmen.
“We strongly condemn this very unprofessional, unpatriotic and callous news reportage patterns that have been conscripted against our people by the section of the media.
“We are calling on security agencies to swing into action, and unravel the perpetrators to bring them to justice in the shortest possible time.”
