Miyetti Allah urges IGP to probe herders’ killing in Delta

A Fulani socio-cultural association, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, has called on the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr. Ibrahim Idris, to set machinery in motion to investigate and arrest those behind the killing of Fulani herdsmen living in Delta state by their host communities to avoid further incidents.

The group’s National Publicity Secretary, Malam Yusuf Musa Ardo, who made the call yesterday in Abuja while reacting to a petition sent to the association by members of Alhaji Mohammed Bassa family and other Fulani living in Delta state, condemned the killings.

He said the IGP should use his good office to intervene and find out those behind the killing, adding that the Fulani “who are peaceful and law abiding people” were being killed indiscriminately by hoodlums from their host communities in Delta.

According to him, the petitioners complained that after the hoodlums have killed their people, they would also vanish into the air with their dead bodies, making it impossible for them to pay their last respect to their remains as demanded by their culture and religion.
