Miyetti Allah: Southern Kaduna Killings are reprisals killings from Post-Presidential killings of herdsmen in 2011

Miyetti AllahThe Kaduna chapter of MACBAN yesterday, called for the end of killings in Southern Kaduna pleading with natives and its members to sheathe their swords and reconcile. This is coming months after  Southern Kaduna natives accused the herdsmen of genocide.

MACBAN corroborating the Kaduna State Government’s position that invasions carried out by the herdsmen were reprisal killings from the 2011 post-presidential killings of herdsmen  and their cattle and that reprisals would never be a solution to the problem.

Dr Ibrahim Abdullahi, the assistant National Secretary of Miyetti Allah while addressing the press in Kaduna said some foreign Fulani were killed in Southern Kaduna in 2011 alongside local Fulani.


He said when the reprisal attacks from the Fulani started then, late Governor Patrick Yakowa of Kaduna State intervened by reaching out to aggrieved Fulani, using some members of MACABAN, which ultimately led to resolving the crisis in 2012. He noted that Yakowa’s predecessor did not continue with the policy. He praised Governor El-Rufai for continuing with what Yakowa started, saying the ongoing killings were regrettable.
