The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has threatened to take action against the alleged killing of its members by members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the Southeast.
Spokesman for the group, Saleh Alhassan, on Thursday, while reacting to the killing of Eastern Security Network (ESN) commander, Ikonso by security operatives, alleged that 50 of its members have been killed in the past one month by IPOB.
According to a report by Saharareporters, the Miyetti Allah spokesman said it will take cultural and legal steps to avenge the death of its members.
He said, “The security agencies should intensify efforts in dealing with all those terrorists killing Fulani herders, burning police stations, prisons and destroying institutions in the South-East.
“So far, more than 50 herders have been killed in the South-East in the last one month, we have the record and the Igbo terrorists led by Nnamdi Kanu will pay for everybody they killed.
“It is unfortunate that they have forgotten history, how we saved a lot of Igbos in the North during the Civil War but now they are killing our people. They are making a grievous mistake. We will take necessary steps, both legal and cultural steps, to avenge the killings of our members.”
