The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, has revealed that the controversial Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) are just like Ohanaeze Ndigbo and the Afenifere socio-cultural groups. Shehu revealed this when he appeared on Channels TV today May 7th. He said: “The Miyetti Allah group is like Ohanaeze Ndigbo or the Afenifere. It’s just a cultural group.” He said this while reacting to the rumours that the Federal government had offered the group N100 billion to appease them over the many herdsmen attacks recorded in the nation. Shehu outrightly denied this revealing that the money was not discussed in the meeting the group members had with the Federal government last Friday, May 3rd. He also added that the meeting was for organised so the leadership of the group can call its erring members to order. He said: “There are criminals with the Yoruba race and you cannot say because there are Yoruba criminals, then Afenifere is a band of criminals,” he said. Photo Credit: Getty
