Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has condemned and distance itself from the killing of Mrs. Funke Olakunrin, daughter of the leader of Afenifere, Pa Reuben Fasoranti.

KanyiDaily had reported that Mrs. Olakunrin, was reportedly killed by suspected Fulani herdsmen as she was heading to Ore Junction from Akure, Ondo State, when she was attacked and shot dead.

However, in a statement issued by MACBAN’s National Secretary, Baba Uthman Ngelzarma, the group lambasted the media for attributing the killing to herdsmen.

Ther group commiserated with Fasoranti on the death of his daughter and called on the police to ensure that the killers were brought to book. The statement partly reads:

“As we express sincere heartfelt condolence to the family of the deceased, we are left in a deep shock on how a section of the media in collaboration with elements in the country that are held bane (sic) on using every opportunity available to them to fuel crisis as they continue the negative profiling of Fulanis for their total annihilation by jumping into a mischievous conclusion that she was killed by herdsmen.

“We strongly condemn this very unprofessional, unpatriotic and callous news reportage patterns that have been conscripted against our people by the section of the media.

“We are calling on security agencies to swing into action, and unravel the perpetrators to bring them to justice in the shortest time possible.”
