The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has distanced itself from the murder of Funke Olakunrin.
Concise News had reported that daughter of Afenifere chieftain Fasoranti Mrs Olakunrin was allegedly killed over the weekend in Ondo State by suspected herdsmen.
However, speaking during a visit to the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), National Secretary of MACBAN Baba Ngelzarma called on Nigerians not to politicise the issue.
According to Ngelzarma, herdsmen are peace-loving people as he called on the police to nab the culprits.
“We are also reaffirming our call on the Police and other security agencies to do all they can to get to the root of this dastardly killing and ensure diligent prosecution of any individual or group found to have had a hand in the incident,” Ngelzarma added.
