“Buhari’s silence on death of herders in Nasarawa shameful” _ Miyetti Allah

The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has expressed its dismay at the “silence” of the federal government and President Muhammadu Buhari over an airstrike that killed over 40 herders.

Last week, the herders and an unspecified number of livestock were killed in Doma LGA of Nasarawa state.

Baba Othman Ngelzarma, MACBAN president, had said the herders were killed when they went to get 1,250 of their cows impounded by the Benue livestock guards.

In a statement on Sunday, Muhammad Abdullahi, MACBAN spokesperson, said the killings constitute “war crimes” and an inquiry must be instituted to find out how the explosion came about.
