The assistant national secretary general of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, MACBAN, Ibrahim Abdullahi,said he has a solution to end the that the crisis in southern part of Kaduna state.
The Killings have allowed the continous deployment of security forces to the area.
The latest killings occurred on February 20 when unknown gunmen invaded communities in two local governments Jema’a and Kauru, killing at least 14 people.
Mr. Abdullahi said most of the Fulani people involved in the killings were not Nigerians. Similar claim by the state government sparked outrage.
He said, “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.
“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.”
Southern Kaduna has been experiencing violent crisis for years now. The latest spell of violence has claimed hundreds of lives.
