Anti-grazing law: Miyetti Allah leader alleges death threats

By Baba Yusuf


National Coordinator of the Fulani socio-cultural association, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, Garus Gololo, has called on the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) over alleged threat to the life of the national president of the association, Alhaji Bello Abdullahi Bodjo.
Gololo, who made the call yesterday in Abuja, said their national president had complained that he had received death threats on telephone from Benue state on a daily basis, asking him to stop challenging the anti-grazing law enacted by Governor Samuel Ortom.
According to him, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore is a peace-loving association that believes in unity among the Fulani and other ethnic groups in the country.
“Our President have been receiving death threat on daily basis from individuals in Benue state, asking him to support the anti-grazing law in Benue state,” he said.
Gololo insisted that the association would not support the anti-grazing law because the state did not provide a demarcation of land for them to graze their cattle.
He appealed to the police boss to take decisive actions on the matter and on the killings of Fulani pastoralists in the country, urging “quick intervention from the federal government to bring peace between the association and Benue state.”
