The Kaduna chapter of the herdsmen association in Nigeria, Miyetti Allah says it is not happy with the fresh attacks recorded in Southern Kaduna between Tuesday, September 8 and Wednesday, September 9.
The group said it was disappointing that some criminal elements were trying to undermine the peace treaty recently signed to bring calm back to the region.
TV Continental wrote that Miyetti Allah stated its position in a statement signed by its Kaduna spokesperson, Bayero Zango.
Zango said: "It is sad to note that these attacks are happening after a peace treaty has been reached and signed by all the warring tribes of Hausa, Fulani and Atyap (Kataf) in a one -day summit on peace and reconciliation."
Legit.ng notes that Southern Kaduna has been a hotbed of violence for several months because of fights between farmers and cattle herders over grazing space.
Legit.ng reported earlier that Miyetti Allah decided to end the disagreement between its members and their neighbours in the southern part of the state.
On Sunday, September 6 MACBAN's Kaduna chapter said it will now work for the return of peace in Southern Kaduna.
The group's resolve was announced in a communique after the peace meeting on the same day.
But Chrisitan leaders in Southern Kaduna and leaders of the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union (SOKAPU) on Tuesday, September 8 shunned a summit to restore peace in their area.
The summit was organised by a group known as 'friends of Southern Kaduna' in collaboration with the Nigeria Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC).
The theme of the event was ‘‘De-escalating violence in Southern Kaduna.”
