WAR: Miyetti Allah To Drag Anglican Bishops To Court For Calling Fulani Herdsmen Terrorists (Can You Believe?)

For demanding that President Muhammadu Buahri declare Fulani Herdsmen Terrorists like was the case for the Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, Anglican Bishop appear to invited trouble from The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN.

The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, on Tuesday threatened to institute a legal action against Anglican bishops for describing violent herdsmen as terrorists.

Recall that an Anglican bishops in Nigeria had called on President Muhammadu Buhari to declare armed herdsmen as terrorists.

However, MACBAN, while insisting they are not terrorists, admonished the bishops to withdraw their remark.

Speaking with Vanguard, the National Coordinator of MACBAN, Alhaji Garus Gololo said herdsmen have the right to graze anywhere across the country.

According to Gololo, “We are not happy with this comment coming from the Bishops who are spiritual heads of the Anglican Church; we want them to withdraw it.

“We are not criminals and the President has nothing to do with us. We are not terrorists, we are peacekeeping citizens.

“We have the right to graze anywhere in the world, not even in Nigeria, because that is the business we came for. So, if the Bishops ask the President to declare herdsmen as criminals, so every man they see rearing cow will be killed. It is very wrong.

“We are not happy with this comment and if they make comments as such next time, we will challenge it in the court.”

Meanwhile, the Fulani socio-cultural association, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore has said that it will soon decide who to endorse between the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.

The National President of the association, Alhaji Bello Abdullahi Bodejo made the disclosure during a press conference in Abuja on Sunday.

According to Bodejo, “We have ensured that our members are massively registered in the elections and should exercise their franchise in peaceful manner wherever they would cast their votes. We expect our members to fully turn out to cast their votes.

“We are happy that the stereotyping of Fulani herdsmen has gone down due to the fact that the two perceived leading presidential candidates are Fulanis.

“The polity has benefitted from this development as we now have campaigns being issues-based and not on ethnicity, religion or other primordial sentiments. We believe this is healthy for the nation.

“On who we are going to support, we are still weighing what the two perceived leading candidates would bring to the table, what they have in stock for the pastoralists that are facing numerous challenges across the country and when we finished our assessments, we will invite the world to know our direction.

“But for now, we are asking our members to get ready with their PVCs and wait where we can negotiate the best for them, especially on their economic livelihood. We would look at the agenda that the two or any of the presidential candidates have for our members.
