The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Southwest zone has called on President Mohammadu Buhari to declare Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association Nigeria (MACBAN) as a terrorist group.

This followed the alleged killings, kidnapping, raping and maiming of residents of the Southwest region by suspected killer-Fulani herdsmen.

In a statement, jointly signed by the Chairmen of Ogun, Ondo and Oyo of NANS, the student umbrella body in Nigeria warned some Northern leaders and governors  to call Fulani herdsmen to order or face the wrath of students in the Southwest region.

The students body lamented the rising insecurity in the Southwest region, following the recent arrest of some Fulani’s who were arrested with ammunition trying to import them into some southwest states.

They called on the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu to be more proactive in curbing the rising insecurity challenges in the region.

“President Mohammadu Buhari should immediately proscribe the Miyetti Allah Castle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) for shielding killer-Fulani herdsmen and promoting the wanton killings and destruction of property in the Southwest region.
