Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, said its members have teamed up with security agents to tackle unidentified gunmen and suspected criminals in Imo State, southeastern Nigeria.
A chieftain of the group, Sarki Makao, who revealed this on Saturday, said the partnership with security agents was approved by state government authorities.
According to Makao, the effort against insecurity in Imo State has improved since the arrival of “Miyetti Allah vigilante” members on January 3, 2022.
“People always accuse Fulani herdsmen of perpetrating the crimes in Imo State and other parts of the country, so we want to prove them wrong, and that’s why we have partnered with security agents to fight crimes.
“We also have vigilante in places like Ebonyi, Zamfara and Kaduna. Our aim is to help government stop the insecurity in the country and bring peace between herdsmen and people in many communities,” said the Miyetti Allah chieftain.
