Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), Kwara State Chapter, has threatened to block transportation of food items and others edible products coming to the South Western part of the country through Kwara State.

Miyetti Allah coordinator in Kwara State, Aliyu Mohammed, who stated this shortly after an emergency meeting of the association in Ilorin on Sunday, said that the blockage of livestock and other food items to the South West through Kwara State will continue until the safety of Fulani is guaranteed in the South West region.

Mohammed stressed that the action is a warning to ensure a peaceful operation of businesses by the Fulani and to end the harassment of the tribe in the region.

He reiterated that not all Fulanis are terrorists and bandits, adding that there are both good and bad people in every tribe just as in today’s society, where there are good and bad people everywhere.

“It is not only Fulanis that commit crimes in the country, but it is sad that everything happening now is heaped on Fulani herdsmen, “he lamented.

He however, said that the association was ready to fish out the bad ones in their midst and hand them over to the police authorities.

He said, “We have concluded at our meeting today that anybody who comes to Kwara State claiming to be Fulani herder under questionable circumstances, will be reported to the security agencies for necessary action.”

“Our vigilantes will monitor the bush and the forests where there are no security agencies and report suspected cattle rustlers who disguise as cattle herders to perpetrate crimes.”

He expressed his gratitude to the Governor of Kware state, Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, for his statesmanship in accommodating and cooperating to ensure the safety of Fulanis in the state.

He however called upon the Federal Government to apprehend popular Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho, who evicted the Fulani from Igangan in Ibarapa Local Government Area of Oyo State, for the alleged destruction of their properties and killing of their people.
