Is Miyetti Allah like other socio-cultural groups in Nigeria like Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Afenifere?
These other groups have never threatened the peace of Nigeria or ever defended the use of brute force and violence to press home their demands.
Garba Shehu’s statement that “The Miyetti Allah group is like Ohanaeze Ndigbo or the Afenifere” is totally a lie.
Standibg up to their defence and saying that the Miyetti Allah is “just a cultural group” is a clear display of partisan interest and affection for the group that vowed to disobey thz cattle grazing laws enacted in Benue state.
The Nigerian presidency is setting a dangerous prescience simply by playing up the bigoted opinions of a certain ethnic group.
Former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode simply summed it up with his submission.
“No they are not.
“They are an association of butchers of cows and men. They are the purveyors of violence, the custodians of falsehood and the repositories of evil. They are as perfidious as they are dangerous!
“They are an umbrella organisation of dark, callous, bloodthirsty and merciless men that seek to legitimise, shield and protect the Fulani herdsmen, the fourth most deadly terrorist organisation in the world.
“Comparing them to Afenifere or Ohaneze is like comparing the Church of Satan and the Cosa Nostra to the Vatican and the Anglican Communion,” the ex-minister said.
