The Miyyeti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has said it will help in flushing out suspected bandits in the country.
The IGP’s statement was after a closed-door meeting with leaders of the association from many communities.
According to the police chief, the herders told them that most of the armed bandits perpetrating the killings are not of Fulani extraction.
“The essence of the meeting was to dialogue with Fulani leaders and we have heard from them,” the IGP added.
“If the dialogue fails, we shall take necessary actions against them. We will take measures to dialogue with the bandits to become better citizens, but if that fails, we will deal with them.
“We have discussed with them and they have agreed to work with us and they agreed that those bandits in the bush are not all of Fulani extraction. So they are ready to work with us to flush them out.”
The meeting had in attendance a delegation from President Muhammadu Buhari which had the Minister of Interior, Abdulrahman Danbazau; acting Inspector General of Police, Muhammad Adamu and Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi State.
