Nnamdi Kanu has revealed some states in southern part Nigeria where Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN has their stronghold in state government. He also accused group of carrying out the abduction of 344 students from the Government Science Secondary School in Kankara, Katsina State.
The self-acclaimed IPOB leader believes it was not appropriate for the US to call for further investigation to discover who carried out the abduction, arguing that Miyetti Allah is running the government.
Note that the Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, announced after the release of the schoolboys that the Fulani top socio-cultural organisation had arranged the release of the schoolboys.
“Firstly, I thank Almighty God Chukwu Okike Abiama that the boys have been released unharmed,” Kanu wrote on Facebook.
“I equally understand the US Government has demanded that the Federal Government of Nigeria investigate those behind the Katsina kidnapping of school children.
“What other investigation is needed when the Governor of Katsina State and his aides have made it clear on several occasions that Miyetti Allah is the group responsible.
Kanu said that Miyetti Allah is not only running the Federal Government but also has strongholds in some state governments such as Anambra, Abia, and Ebonyi.
“They are also part of Willie Obiano’s cabinet in Anambra State, Okezie Ikpeazu is working with the same terrorists in Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu gave them land for free at Lopka and Dave Umahi will proudly tell you that he is happy working with Miyetti Allah in Ebonyi State,” he said.
The IPOB lambasted the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami for rushing to declare IPOB a terrorist group while Fulani herdsmen are walking freely.
He said Malami has “failed to do the same against a murderous Miyetti Allah because they know the game they are playing.”
