Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has said it would confiscate the cows of any erring member, especially those destroying farmlands.
Naija News reports that the State chairman of the association, Mohammed Husaini, gave the warning during a meeting with members on Saturday in Keana Local Government Area (LGA).
According to the chairman of the association, the association will henceforth expose the bad elements among them to the security agencies for immediate prosecution.
“We will set up a monitoring committee to monitor the activities of our members and report the bad elements to us for an onward report to the security agencies.
“We will also confiscate the cows of anyone caught destroying farmland deliberately to serve as a deterrent to others,” he said.
Naija News gathered that the chairman added that the leadership was conducting an investigation to fish out members that recently attacked and amputated the hands of a farmer in Keana.
“The perpetrators of the crime will never go unpunished, as we will get them and make them face the full wrath of the law,” he said.
The plan of the Miyetti Allah group to caution erring members comes in the midst of accusations insinuating that suspected Fulani herdsmen were responsible for the attacks melted on farmers in some parts of the country.
