The Taraba State section of Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, revealed on Monday that the Federal Government is conspiring with the Nigeria police and  Fulani herdsmen concerning the taking of innocent lives by the Fulani herdsmen which is being reported across the nation.

Leaders of the Taraba state chapter of CAN  made this revelation at a press conference in Jalingo.

According to the chairman of the chapter, Rev. Ben Ubeh, serious investigation needs to be carried out on the recent killings in Taraba State by Fulani herdsmen and the position of the security agencies, especially the police.

The leadership of the association has also urged the Governor of the state, Darius Ishaku not to pay attention to the unnecessary blackmail by Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association concerning the implementation of the open grazing prohibition law.

In the words of the Chairman, “We call on President Muhammadu Buhari, Emirs and patrons of Miyetti Allah to rise to the occasion and prevent the country from going into another needless civil war.”

“Cattle breeding is a private business and you cannot force your private business on the resources of others. If the Federal Government creates cattle colonies, would they create piggery colonies across states in the north?”

Ubeh added that CAN is more concern with finding a lasting solution to the incessant killings by the herdsmen in the country.

He also said, “We support ranching as the best solution to the killings going on in the country. Ranching is the way to go and the Federal Government should stop playing politics with the lives of innocent Nigerians to please a particular group in the country.”

“For now, Mr. President seems to be sympathetic to his kinsmen going by his handling of herdsmen killings in the country.”

CAN also urge the President not to forget his promise to the citizens of Nigeria as it reminded Buhari  of his statement during his inauguration, ‘I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody’.”

The Christian Association of Nigeria further accuses the federal government of being partial in handling the Fulani herdsmen issue. It posited that the federal government and the police are not being fair in the ways they treat security issues in the country.

CAN recalled that the government had last year declared the Independent People of Biafra, IPOB, a terrorist group and launched “Operation Python Dance, “and “Crocodile Smile” for the IPOB and Niger Delta Avengers, which it has failed to do so on the issue of herdsmen who have taken the lives of more innocent persons.
