The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, has expressed displeasure over last Tuesday and Wednesday’s attacks in some parts of Southern Kaduna, saying the development were contrary to the spirit of the ongoing peace process in the area.
To this end, the organisation cautioned those it referred to as “criminal elements” to desist from their actions.
The Fulani cattle rearers’ organisation which named those killed in the renewed attacks as Abdullahi Hassan; Yusuf Hassan and Abubakar Hassan, respectively, condemned the attacked it termed “unprovoked”, by ” those bent on sabotaging the peace processes in the area.”
MACBAN, in a statement, signed by Bayero Zango, its Director, Media and Publicity in its Kaduna State chapter, also said the attacks resulted in the death of three cows while some Fulani pastoralists were chased away from their places of abode.
“All these attacks happened after the peace treaty was reached and signed by all the warring tribes of Hausa, Fulani and Atyap (Kataf) in a one -day summit on peace and reconciliation organized by the Paramount Traditional Ruler of the Chiefdom, Sir Dominic Gambo Yahaya on 22nd of August 2020,” it claimed.
According to MACBAN, “the most unfortunate thing about this incident is that the attacks were carried out at the same time when the Agwatyap (Chief of Kataf) was holding a meeting with some Fulani representatives of those who fled the area during the last crises of June 11th, 12th and 13th 2020 in the area.
