The apex socio-cultural organization of Tiv community, the Mdzough u Tiv has called on the Federal Government to arrest leaders of the Miyetti Allah over killings in Benue State.

This was contained in as statement by the group over the weekend.

According to them, the Federal Government should arrest the National President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Abdullahi Bello Bodejo and the National Secretary, Saleh Alhassan over threat to frustrate the implementation of the Open Grazing Bill in the State.

“We restate our call on President Muhammadu Buhari to direct security agencies to arrest and prosecute the National President of Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Abdullahi Bello Bodejo and the group’s National Secretary, Saleh Alhassan who had repeatedly threatened to mobilize their members across the country to resist implementation of the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law enacted by Benue State,” the statement said in part.

“With his comments, the Inspector General of Police seems to be in agreement with the conspiracy of the Fulani leaders and their position about the crisis in Benue State.

“However, Benue people are law-abiding and have remained so even in the face of frequent unprovoked attacks by Fulani herdsmen. We therefore expect the Inspector General of Police to, in the spirit of peace-building, retract the statement to correct the wrong impression it has created.”
