Plateau Massacre: 'Why We Can't Arrest Myetti Allah Members' - Military
The military on Tuesday gave the reason why the army has not arrested the leaders of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore and the Fulani Nationality Movement.
The Director of Defence Information, Brigadier General John Agim, said there is no proof that could have led to their arrest.
Various groups and individuals, including Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, have called for the arrest of leaders of Miyeitti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, Miyeitti Alla Kautal Hore and Fulani Nationality Movement.
Agim said, “We discovered that Fulani have been suffering from cattle rustling; we arrested the bandits with the cows and returned hundreds of the cows to them through their state governors.
“A lot of people have been posing the question to us about why we have not arrested them, but the reason for not arresting them is that they have not owned up.”
Meanwhile 11 suspects have been arrested in connection to the killing of over 86 people in Plateau State.
Biliaminu Abdullahi; Samaila Saleh; Muhammadu Kabiru; Aminu Mohammed; Alhassan Saidu, Abubakar Adam, Gazali Isah, Hamza Inusa, Yahuza Yau, Dahiru Ahmed and Friday Musa were arrested on Tuesday by the police.
