The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), are of the opinion that non-Fulanis are responsible for the killings and kidnappings that have been recorded in many parts of the country.
Siddiki Gidado, the South-East Chairman of MACBAN, stated this during an interview with newsmen on Wednesday in Awka, Anambra state.
He added that although, there may be some bad eggs among the Fulani, however, most of the kidnappings and killings could be attributed to other cattle rearers, which include the Shua Arabs, Kanuri, Igbo, Tiv and Jukun.
“In every tribe, you have bad eggs and when some evil acts are carried out, the entire tribe is made to take the blame. Most killings are attributed to Fulani when they are not the culprits,” Gidado said.
