Fulani cattle breeders warn Governor Fayose over ‘arrest’ of cows | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

Miyetti Allah 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 unscrupulous and targeted at “our members who are bona fide citizens of the country.”

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 macabre 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.

  3. These people should remove hatred from Governance for fast Growth now. Use ur Head to create space for them. At least, ur state will benefit from them one way or the other.
    Plan to make money from them like imposing little Tax on Them or Most Italian shoes and even Prada(I am sure of this) source their Leathers from Nigeria. Think Leather Processing.
    Wasting Brain Resources.

  7. What an effrontery over another man's property! Who do the Fulanis think they are? Whose means of livelihood is not lost when you damage the crops of your host community? I have NEVER seen this kind cheekiness from a homeless bunch of scumbags in my entire life! Set them ablaze from the cows to their herders and let the war begin!

  8. Fayose is the Chief Security Officer of Ekiti State. His first line of duty is to protect the lives and property of his citizens. Any threat to that must be met with overwhelming force if necessary. I totally side with him. Expel the Fulanis like unwanted warms in the system!

  10. Is it by force to rear cattle in Ekiti state?
    You cattle rearers should stop supplying Ekiti cattle in any form whatsoever. When the land is deprived of meat for a long time, maybe the big mouthed governor will then realise that no state is an island.

  13. If the cows are your source of livelyhood, also remember that people's farms and private properties are their rights too. Your rights end where mine begins. By the way, more humans than viws have been killed in Nigeria since your men began their recent rampage on Nigerian lives. Im not really surprised that a few persons support and sympathise with you (fulani herdsmen) because some slaves believe they are destined to be slavea and so submit themselves to their masters whip every morning.
