Killings: Deploy security agents to Zamfara – Miyetti Allah begs Tinubu

The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, has urged President Bola Tinubu-led Federal Government to deploy security agencies to Zamfara State to prevent the ‘heartbreaking’ killings in some parts of the state.

No fewer than seven people were reportedly killed on Tuesday after unknown gunmen went from house to house killing people in the Chafe Local Government Area of the state.

However, Bello Gotomo, the National Secretary of MACBAN, alleged that the attacks were carried out by an outlawed group tagged “Yan Sa Kai Group”.

In a statement on Friday, Gotomo called on the state’s government to ban the group’s activities and ensure that the perpetrators of the dastardly killings were brought to book.

“So much innocent blood had been shed in the state that a firm and convincing solution must be found to this unwholesome bloodletting.

“The causes of the crisis are well known and the solutions to it are also very clear, it is, therefore, up to the state government to take the bull by the horn and restore lasting peace for all communities in the state.

“The association also called on the federal government to intervene by deploying more security to arrest not only the perpetrators but also their financiers.

“The new administration is being tested in the resurgence of this sectarian violence and it is up to it to be firm from day one in dealing with this unwanted calamity,” he said.
