The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has sent their condolences to the family of Afenifere leader, Reuben Fasoranti, over the killing of his daughter, Olakunri-Fasoranti, on Friday.
Baba Uthman, the national security official of the cattle breeders’ union, in a statement on Saturday described the death as a huge loss to the nation and sympathised with the Fasorantis.
Also, he asked irate Nigerians to allow security agencies enough time to investigate the violence and withhold conclusions about the ethnic identity of the killers in the interest of national unity.
The statement read: “As we express sincere heartfelt condolence to the family of the deceased, we are left in a deep shock on how a section of the media in collaboration with elements in the country that are held bane (sic) on using every opportunity available to them to fuel crisis as they continue the negative profiling of Fulanis for their total annihilation by jumping into a mischievous conclusion that she was killed by herdsmen.
“We strongly condemn this very unprofessional, unpatriotic and callous news reportage patterns that have been conscripted against our people by the section of the media.
“We are calling on security agencies to swing into action, and unravel the perpetrators to bring them to justice in the shortest possible time.”
