Yoruba Ko’ya Movement, a foremost Pan-Yoruba socio-cultural group, has urged Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari to call the Miyetti Allah to order.
Nigerian Tribune reports that the group on Sunday, February 9, asked the president tell the umbrella body of herdsmen and cattle breeders to choose the security of lives and properties over ethnicity.
Deji Osibogun, the convener of the group, in a statement explained that the failure of President Buhari to checkmate the cattle breeders over their attack on other groups might give Yoruba people no option than to leave the country.
The group went on to note that Miyetti Allah leaders consistently going on both local and international media to intimidate, threaten, harass, and insult stakeholders including governors, elder statesmen and notable religious leaders are alarming.
Osibogun demanded the president to order the arrest and prosecution of all Miyetti Allah leaders that have claimed responsibilities for series of attacks
He also tasked the president to be conscious of what he would be remembered for after his administration ends and act well.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) urged the federal government to immediately arrest the leaders of the Miyetti Allah for allegedly sponsoring crimes in the country.
In a related development, the national president-general of Miyetti Allah Kautal, Bello Abdullahi Bodejo, called on the federal government to arrest Yoruba leaders promoting Operation Amotekun, the newly created southwest security outfit.
Bodejo who made the statement in an interview with Daily Sun alleged that the aim of setting up the security outfit by southwest governors was to ban Fulani herdsmen from Yorubaland.
He said matters of security should be left for security organizations, adding that he saw no reason why the southwest should set up a security outfit.
