‘Soldiers arrested our vigilantes as criminals in Oyo’

The Chairman, Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) in Oyo State, Alhaji Ibrahim Jiji, on Monday, appealed to the state government to release 46 Fulani in police custody.

He said the arrested Fulanis were not criminals but members of Vigilante Group of Nigeria (VGN), who are securing people in Ibarapa land.

Jiji, who stated this at a press conference in Ibadan on Monday, said the arrested vigilantes were among the people invited to rescue some kidnap victims in Ibarapa North Local Government Area of the state.

“The 46 vigilantes that were arrested have been useful for the state for many years. All the 46 vigilantes are not criminals; they are the people arresting criminals.

“Even those criminals arrested by our men are with police as we speak,” he said.
