Miyetti Allah speaks on plan by Fulani Herdsmen to attack Anambra, Enugu

Fulani Herdsmen operating in the south-east region of the country have reacted to reports of a plan to attack Anambra and Enugu states.

The group denied having any plan to attack the states, adding that they have no grudge against anybody in the South-east.

Addressing members of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), South-East zone during a meeting held yesterday in Enugu, the chairman of the association in the zone, Alhaji Gidado Sadiqu, said that the members were conscious of “the negative information being spread in the country’s seemingly volatile political space to the extent that Fulani herdsmen are planning to attack Anambra and Enugu states,” urging the public to disregard it as it is just rumour.

“Fulani herdsmen have no grudges with the aforementioned states. We are in the South-east to look for greener pastures to feed our cattle. We are not here to terrorise anyone but we’re scared of people coming under the guise of Fulani herdsmen to unleash terror on our hosts.”

The meeting was attended by representatives of the association from the five South-East states of Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo.

He advised members of the association to be watchful and quickly report strange faces around them to concerned authorities, just as he urged the public to remain vigilant and not to allow anyone to destroy the peaceful co-existence they enjoy.
