DUTSE – The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has condoled with Gov. Sule Lamido of Jigawa over the death of six Fulani herdsmen in Saminaka Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
“On behalf of the national body of Miyetti Allah, we pray to Almighty Allah to forgive and bless them with Aljannatul firdausi, and also give their families the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.’’
Responding, the governor condemned the alleged extra-judicial killing of the six Fulani men in Saminaka Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
While describing the killing as “unfortunate and alarming,” Lamido called for a thorough investigation into the matter.
He expressed dismay on how innocent people were arrested and killed without any investigation or justifiable reason for doing so.
“This is very alarming and should be of great concern to all, especially leaders.’’
He said since the incident happened in May, the State House of Assembly set up a committee to find out what actually led to the killing of the Fulani men.
The governor said that the committee had met with all the relevant stakeholders in Kaduna State, including the traditional ruler of the community where the incident happened.
He stated that the committee would follow the case to its logical conclusion and ensure that justice was done to the innocent lives and families of the victims.
The delegation visited and donated N200,000 to the families of the deceased in Katanga Village in Kiyawa Local Government Area of Jigawa. (NAN)
