Herders condemn mindless killings in Zamfara
The leadership of Kulen Allah Cattle Rearers Association of Nigeria (KACRAN) has condemned recent killings in Zamfara State, and called on bandits to stop killing innocent Nigerians.
The group, in a statement by the National President, Hon Khalil Mohd Bello, said: “As the good people of Dauri, Bakura Local Government Area of Zamfara State are sorrowfully mourning the death of over 50 persons brutally killed by armed bandits in the state, we members of Kulen Allah Cattle Rearers Association of Nigeria (KACRAN), as a peace loving herders’ association in the country, wish to sadly condemn the aforementioned barbaric, senseless act in the state and strongly call on the assailants to immediately stop killing innocent Nigerians in the name of taking vengeance against the volunteer groups, who they claim are illegally attacking, stealing their livestock and killing their families.
“It is neither rational nor ideal to take revenge against people who are not the actual ones that attacked you in the initial stage. And even if they are the ones, what they ought to do is to report them to legal authorities who have the constitutional backing to arrest the culprits and bring them to book. Their retaliatory attacks in the villages and towns, for whatever reason, are uncalled for and a crime against humanity.”
KACRAN also commended Zamfara State government for cautioning volunteer groups in the state.
