Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association
Banji Akintoye says the incessant clash between Fulani herdsmen and farmers in the southwest of the country has a way of painting Miyetti Allah as terrorists.
President Muhammadu Buhari has been urged to declare marauding herdsmen and the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) as a terrorist group.
The southwest Houses of Assembly have turned down the demand by the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) to participate in the operation of Amotekun, a new security outfit in the region.
After a shaky start, the southwest's security outfit, Operation Amotekun, appears to be getting stronger as major stakeholder groups have thrown their weight behind the initiative.
