MACBAN Orders Fulani Herdsmen To End Night Grazing
National President of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), Alhaji Muhammadu Kiruwa has ordered Fulani Herders across the Southwest to put an end to both night and underaged grazing with immediate effect.
Muhammadu Kiruwa made this call in Ondo State Capital during a meeting between the Miyetti Allah and some Governors under the platform of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum (NGF).
He stated that Governor Akeredolu never asked the Fulanis to leave Ondo State but to get registered if they are illegally occupying the government forest reserve.
He warned herders to desist from taking their cows to people’s farms for grazing, adding that the frequents farmers/herders clash must be brought to an end.
The MACBAN President said the order given by Governor Akeredolu was not new but has been issued two years ago, adding that those who wished to remain in the government forest reserve should get registered.
While stressing that MACBAN is a peaceful association that values peace and condemned criminalities in any form, the President said MACBAN will continue to work with security agencies to fish out criminals.

He expressed their readiness to support the governors and the security agencies in bringing the criminals masquerading as herdsmen among them to justice.
