The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, South-East zone, has said that it has no grudges against any state in the zone, let alone plotting any form of attack.
The association in a press conference in Awka, the Anambra State capital, denied a media report purporting it to have said that herdsmen would unleash mayhem on the area for denying them grazing rights.
The Chairman of MACBAN South-East zone, AIhaji Gidado Sidikki, described the story as embarrassing and malicious.
He said, “Few days ago, we woke up to a malicious publication in a social media platform, purporting a phantom statement in Abuja entitled ‘South East will boil any moment from now because of their stubbornness’ ascribed to the leadership of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, erroneously assigned by me.”
“My mission here is simply to expose the lie in the mischievous publication.
