The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, MACBAN, has denied negotiating with the gunmen for the release of the Students of Government Science Secondary School, in Kankara, Katsina State,
The Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Masari, had said that the State Government contacted the Miyetti Allah, to enter into discussion with the bandits, in a bid to secure the release of the Schoolboys abducted from the School.
However, the National Secretary of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Baba Othman Ngelzarma, made it clear that such was not the case.
According to Ngelzarma: “Unless the Governor was discussing with the Katsina State branch of the Association, but definitely not with the National Leadership.”
In the same vein, the National President of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Bello Abduallahi Bodejo, also insisted that nobody contacted them, or discussed with them over the same matter.
Bodejo said: “We do not know the bandits, and we do not want to know them, and we do not have anything to do with them. No member of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, even at local levels, knows the bandits.”
