Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), South East branch has said four of its members were killed by gunmen in Anambra State on Monday and 60 cows rustled.

A statement made available to journalists in Awka, Anambra State by the zonal chairman, Allahaji Gidado Sidikki, said the attack took place at a Fulani camp in the Ndukwenu community, Orumba North Local Government Area of the state.

The statement read in part, “Our members are being innocently killed oftentimes; we don’t know our sins in Anambra State.

“As we appreciate the state government under Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo and security agencies, we also implore for their quick intervention to stop the killing our people. We can no longer move freely now in the state.”

Sidikki gave the names of the deceased as Mohammed Idris, Sale Idris, Abdulmumkni Idris and Musa Idris.

He also stated that the corpses of Mohammed and Sale have been recovered while the other two bodies were still missing.

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, said he had yet to receive a report of the attack.

He promised to call back but had yet to do so at the time of filing this report.
