Yoruba Ko’ya Movement, a socio-cultural group, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to take decisive actions against threats issued by Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN).

In a statement, Deji Osibogun, converner of Yoruba Ko’ya Movement, said there has been a series of allegations against Miyetti Allah on the basis of terrorist act and unchecked utterances by its leaders.

Osibogun said it is worrisome that despite the remarks made by leaders of Miyetti Allah which often “heat up the polity”, security agencies have made no attempt to arrest the them.

“While we do not want to dwell in the realm of rumours, however, we are forced to state very expressly that the threat to life and admission to mass murder by identifiable and known leaders of Miyetti Allah without any word of caution or arrest by law enforcement agencies in the country led credence to the fact that Miyetti Allah are carrying out the briefs of some invincible forces at the corridor of power in Abuja or elsewhere,” the statement read.

“A mere trade union from a tribe continue to heat-up the polity while others shiver and shake in their pants for fear of attack yet no arrest by our security formations. These murderous elements are so courageous that they appeared live on national Televisions to attack a whole region comprising of over 50 million people yet the agencies sworn to protect the lives and property of the people are acting like everything is normal. We say without any fear or intimidation that this is an antithesis of a strong and united Nation.”

The group said if Buhari refuses to take appropriate be steps to address the issue, Yoruba tribe will declare itself sovereign and exit Nigeria.

“We Yoruba people therefore want to put the Buhari administration on notice that we are not scared of any of these mindless and senseless statements from the hoodlums that the Nigerian government is obviously aiding and abetting. We wish to inform them that we shall protect our land and people with all the resources God has provided and blessed us with,” he said.

“In addition to the foregoing, we are putting the Federal Government on Notice that if nothing radical and patriotic is done to stop the ongoing mayhem and open threats to our people by Miyetti Allah, we shall mobilize our people to take all democratic steps to ensure our safety and continuous existence as a nation within the Nigerian Federation which may include a Declaration of our Sovereignty or Our Exit from the Nation of Nigeria because we can no longer guarantee our Comfort, Safety and Existence within this Den of Hell.

“We note also with displeasure that all statements by the leadership of Miyetti are far beyond the bounds of Treasonable Felony that the Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore was charged,  connoting that all Tribes are no longer equal in Nigeria.”

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) had earlier asked the federal government to declare MACBAN a terrorist organisation.
