Southern Kaduna Massacres: Cattle Breeders Association Reveals Those Behind Crisis

The assistant National Secretary General of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, MACBAN, Ibrahim Abdullahi, has revealed those behind the lingering crisis in Southern Kaduna.

Speaking in Kaduna, Abdullahi disclosed that perpetrators of the dastard acts were Fulani herdsmen from neighbouring countries.

According to Abdullahi, “It has to do with foreign nomads coming into the country. There are three or four international grazing routes, most of which passed through Kaduna state,” he said.

“Two of the routes are from Cameroun down through Lere and Kauru local governments, another one is from Chad Republic that came through southern part of Plateau state down to Zangon-Kataf and there is another one from Niger Republic through Kano/ Katsina down to Kaduna.”

The persistent crisis in Southern Kaduna despite the deployment of security forces has led to the death of many residents in the area.

The latest killings carried out by Fulani herdsmen occurred on February 20 2017, when communities in two local governments- Jema’a and Kauru were invaded and about 14 people were killed.
