The National Secretary of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association, Baba Othman Ngelzarma has said that some individuals in the country are desperate to brand Fulani herdsmen as terrorists.

Ngelzarma also condemned the recent killings in Enugu State which were reportedly carried out by herdsmen.

He made the comments on Thursday, April 28, 2016, while appearing on Channels TV.

“I have to use this opportunity to condemn in totality what has taken place in Enugu. It’s really shocking. I also want to use this medium to sympathize with the government and people of Enugu State over what has happened. Fulanis are also victims of these perpetrators,” he said.

“These are things that are being perpetrated by criminals, but surprisingly, everybody is blaming the herdsmen so we are now victims and culprits at the same time. It’s sad,” he added.

He also said that herdsmen get abducted regularly but the incidents are never reported in the media.
