FULANI HERDSMEN OPPOSES FAYOSE OVER ‘ARREST’ OF COWS


Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria,
MACBAN, comprising Fulani cattle herders is spoiling
for a show down with Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti
State.
They are angry with him over the introduction of the
Ekiti Grazing Enforcement Marshals, EGEM, a vigilance
group tasked with ‘arresting’ cows found invading and
damaging farms in the state.
The association branded Fayose’s action as
unscrupulous and targeted at “our members who are
bonafide Nigerians.”
Baba Othman Ngelzarma, spokesman for the group in
a statement, yesterday said, “the anti-malu vigilante
group shot five cows and carted away the meat but the
herdsman was able to flee with the rest of his cattle.”
Continuing, MACBAN said; “As far as we know, Ekiti
State is not an island of its own , but a state within the
Federal Republic of Nigeria and while the governor is
permitted to carry out actions geared towards
protecting the interest of Ekiti State, such actions
should follow the rule of law.
“We deplore this act of brigandage and call on
Governor Fayose to offer an unreserved apology to
MACBAN, and equally set machinery in motion with a
view to compensating our members who lost five cows
in this primitive adventure.
“That the brutality of the Ekiti Grazing enforcement
marshals (popularly known as Anti-malu) on herdsmen
is even outside the time stipulated by that law (if the
law exists at all).
“The Federal Government should therefore look into the
actions and activities of this committee because we
cannot fold our hands while the only means of survival
of our members is taken away and destroyed.
“We are hereby constrained to implore the Federal
Government through its security agencies to wade into
this unprovoked and primitive aggression against our
members, before this incident develops into
unquenchable inferno involving our members and Ekiti
State government.”
However, the group sympathized with the government
of Kaduna State, and the people of Kaduna South over
the recent attack on Godogodo community by people
suspected to be Fulani herdsmen.
