The Nigerian Army Should Be Deployed to Protect Our Cows – Miyetti Allah


The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association Has said that the federal government should deploy the army to protect their cow and while they graze freely.  This is a way to enforce the open grazing law and allow Fulani Herdsmen graze freely on their farmlands.

According to The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), Nasarawa State Chapter, have called for the deployment of military to border towns between Nasarawa and Benue, to curtail the incessant attacks on cows.

MACBAN’s state chairman, Mohammed Hussaini, who made the call in an interview with newsmen on Saturday, said measure would bring the situation under control.

He attributed the spill over of the attacks and killings in border towns to the anti open grazing law being enforced by the Benue Government.

“Since this thing started, we have been under attacks by armed militia groups, in which lots of our people were killed, some are still missing.
“A lot of cows belonging to our members were killed and many other rustled in some of these attacks.
“The lives of our members are also being threatened in all the border towns; so the federal government should come to our aid by deploying the military to the affected areas,” he said.
