The Kajuru chapter of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders
Association of Nigeria and the Birnin-Gwari Emirate Council have decried the increasing wave of insecurity in the North.
They spoke separately to our correspondent in Kaduna State.
While the Miyetti Allah group warned that peace would remain elusive as long as their rights to living and source of livelihood were trampled upon, the emirate council said food crisis was imminent in its domain because of the activities of bandits.
MACBAN’s chairman, Musa Aliyu Ardo, who spoke to our correspondent on the sidelines of a capacity building workshop on conflict prevention in Kaduna on Thursday, insisted that herders were peace-loving people who co-exist with other tribes.
The capacity building workshop was organised by the office of the Vice President, and was aimed at tackling the herders/farmers’ clashes in the state.
