The Anglican bishops in Nigeria has been threatened by the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) for describing violent herdsmen as terrorists.
This is consequent to a call on President Muhammadu Buhari to declare armed herdsmen as terrorists by the Anglican bishops.
Speaking on the threat issuance, the National Coordinator of MACBAN, Alhaji Garus Gololo said…
“We are not happy with this comment coming from the Bishops who are spiritual heads of the Anglican Church; we want them to withdraw it.”
“We are not criminals and the President has nothing to do with us. We are not terrorists, we are peacekeeping citizens.”
“We have the right to graze anywhere in the world, not even in Nigeria, because that is the business we came for. So, if the Bishops ask the President to declare herdsmen as criminals, so every man they see rearing cow will be killed. It is very wrong.
“We are not happy with this comment and if they make comments as such next time, we will challenge it in the court.”
