Herdsman Reportedly Killed In Anambra

A herdsman, identified as Zakari Sale, was shot dead in the Ukwulu community of Dunokofia Local Government Area in Anambra State.

Alhaji Gidado Siddiki, leader of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MCBAN) in the South East, disclosed this on Friday, August 25th.

Siddiki explained that a total of 15 cows were killed in the same community two weeks prior to the incident.

“I came to know about the incident when the brother of the slain herdsman, Haruna Sale, called me on Wednesday, August 23, and told me that his brother had been missing since August 21, 2023, and immediately after the call, we set up a search party where we eventually found his decomposed body in a bush around the community.

“The Traditional ruler of the community, who has been a good leader also told my subjects living in his community. He said he has advised my people to vacate the town temporarily to enable him to study the security situation in his community. Most of the criminals operating in the area always disguise themselves as Fulani herders.

“We call on the State Governor, Chukwuma Soludo, to strengthen the farmers/herders committee template set up by the immediate past governor, Willie Obiano, to help settle cases of this nature in the state,” he added.

Siddiki, who is also known as Siriki Fulani in Anambra, called on the security agencies to ensure that those responsible for the barbaric act are brought to justice. He also appealed to his members to stay calm and continue with their normal business.
