Stop bloodshed in Zamfara, Miyetti Allah tells FG

The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria has urged the Federal Government to deploy security agencies to Zamfara State to put an end to all the criminalities, including the killing of innocent persons by bandits in some parts of the state.

The state has become one of the most targeted states in the North-Western part of the country in recent times as the activities of bandits have resulted in the loss of many innocent lives and property.

MACBAN in a statement by its National Secretary, Bello Gotomo, on Friday, said the cause of the problem was known, adding that the state government should take proactive measures to tackle it.

It alleged that some of the attacks were perpetrated by a proscribed group identified as ‘Yan Sa Kai Group’, even as it asked the government to ban activities of the group and ensure the criminals were brought to book.

He said, “The association also calls on the Federal Government to intervene by deploying more security to arrest not only the perpetrators but also their financiers. So much innocent blood has been shed in the state that a firm and convincing solution must be found to this unwholesome bloodletting.”
