The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) in Kaduna State has condemned the alleged extra judicial killings, and what it labels as the maiming, outright stealing, looting, extortion, unlawful intrusion and harassment’ of law-abiding Fulbe Youths of Tilde Fulbe community and other areas of Ladduga Grazing Reserve in Kachia Local Government areas of Kaduna.
In a press statement signed and issued by Chairman of the association in the state, Haruna Usman Tugga, MACBAN, says it received, with serious concern, information on allegations of extra judicial killings and incursion by Nigerian Military personnel from the Nigerian Army and Nigerian Navy Armament Technology School of Artillery (NASA) all located at Kachia, into Tilde-Fulbe community and other communities within the Ladduga District, Kachia LGA of Kaduna, spanning three to four weeks ago and particularly on Saturday, 30th December, 2023.
According to MACBAN, in order to substantiate the information, it promptly called an emergency executive meeting of the association with a view to getting into the root of the matter and to find out the triggers, remote causes, perpetrators and names of the victims.
Arising from the emergency Executive Council meeting which was held on Wednesday 9th January, 2024, the association says it dispatched some of its members on a fact finding mission to the affected areas and came up with the tragic findings.
Haruna Usman Tugga called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Governor Uba Sani to intervene and bring the erring military personnel to book and compensate the victims families.
