The Nasarawa State chapter of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, MACBAN, says the Nigeria army has the power to arrest and prosecute any Fulani herdsmen involve in the killing of innocent Nigerians across the federation.
Making this known was the MACBAN chairman, Muhammed Hussein while addressing journalists in Lafia, alleged that six herdsmen and 150 cows had been killed by suspected military personnel.
“We are worried how six of our members were shot dead by some bad eggs that are in the military.
“If the military suspects any Fulani man for any crime, they should arrest and prosecute him and not to just kill him like that.
“I am not aware of what led to the attack but I was informed that some soldiers just invaded Fulani settlement and shot six of our people including a traditional title holder in the Fulani community.
“If you claim that the Fulani people committed a crime, how about the cows, what did the cows do that warranted the killing of 150 cows. What for?
