Benue State Governor asks FG to declare Miyetti Allah Terrorist Group.
Written by News Room on January 7, 2022
Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has asked the Federal Government to declare two cattle rearing groups popularly known as Miyetti Allah and one Fulani group as terrorists.
The groups include Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) and Fulani Nationality Movement (FUNAM).
Mr. Ortom was reacting to the Federal Government’s recent designation of bandits as terrorists.
In a statement signed by spokesperson Nathaniel Ikyur, Mr. Ortom said labelling bandits as terrorists “is not enough.”
Ortom also tasked the President to do all that is necessary to revamp the ailing economy and save citizens from poverty.
He dismissed the President’s tagging of the PDP as a failure.
