Our reporter| The Sultan of Sokoto, Muhammed Sa’ ad Abubakar III, on Monday said the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, can help resolve the insecurity crisis in the country.
The royal father, who stated this during the swearing-in of MACBAN’s new executives at the National Mosque Abuja, said the leadership of MACBAN can help put an end to the issue of banditry and kidnapping in Nigeria.
“Everybody knows that Fulani move from point A to B. They move everywhere and they intermarry. And we are peace loving, he said.
“But how did we come to the situation we are in now, we find our children who are Fulani, but not all of them Fulani have been involved in banditry and kidnapping. What happened?
“When we meet with the executives we will discuss how to tackle this. How do we resolve them because it is high time we did.
“Over 48 years of this MACBAN, we need to have some new inputs and new ideas into the constitution.”
Fulani herders, have in recent times, been associated with kidnapping and banditry in the country.
They have attacked farmers, sacked communities, and attack religious centres across the country, and have reportedly made billions as ransom from their banditry activities.
