MACBAN blows hot over killing of Fulani herdsmen, cattle in Taraba

The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria ​(MACBAN) has expressed shock ​and sadness over the “wanton destruction of lives and cattle going on in Gembu-mambila area in Sardauna Local Government Taraba State.​”​
​Several persons ​​​were said to have been killed ​and about ​over ​1​0​0 houses razed as at Monday this week.
​Reacting on Wednesday, Baba Othman Ngelzarma​,​ MACBAN ​National​ Secretary​, said it ‎was tragic that as at last count​, ​over 100 Fulanis have been assumed killed​,​several injured​,​ others missing and over 15,000 cattle either killed, maimed or rustled.​
He noted that ​”​It is equally unfortunate to observe the attitude of Taraba State Government in the face of this genocide.
​”​MACBAN condemns in strong terms this somewhat premeditated genocide and the silence or inaction on the part of the Taraba State Government.
​”We are calling on the relevant national security agencies to step up action in fortifying the area and ensure normalcy is returned.
​”​Itt is our firm belief that only a national judiciary commission of inquiry can unveil the true nature, motivation and magnitude of these barbaric acts of carnage and destruction.
​”​The Federal Government should as a matter urgency and justice institute one. MACBAN and indeed the affected Fulanis will not accept any window dressing approach by the Taraba State Government in managing the crisis.​”​
​The​ MACBAN scribe further appealedto relief agencies to access distressed areas with the view of providing relief materials to the affected people.
