Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) on Friday, denied responsibility for Southern Kaduna attacks.

Speaking at a press conference, Ibrahim S. Abdullahi, Assistant National Secretary General of MACBAN in Kaduna, condemned a story by Vanguard newspapers in 2016 during Godogodo attacks that quoted MACBAN state chairman as saying that Fulanis claimed responsibility for the Godogodo attack of September, 2016.

"We wish to condemn a concocted story by one Luka Binniyat, Kaduna Correspondent of Vanguard Newspapers in 2016 during Godogodo attacks that our Chairman said Fulani claimed responsibility for the attacks.

"Our Chairman did not talk with him and we challenge him to provide evidence or retract that statement attributed to our Chairman and apologise to our great Association or face a legal action," he said.

The Assistant National Secretary warned those behind the "provocative article to in the interest of peace, desist from using our good name to create mischief in the society.

"We do hereby call on the security agencies to investigate this faceless undesirable element that are behind this write-up in order to bring them to book," he said.

Abdullahi also called on members of the Association nationwide and in particular those affected by the crisis in Southern Kaduna to disregard the article, remain peaceful and law abiding.

He also called on everyone to support the Federal and Kaduna State governments and all the security agencies in their efforts to return peace and normalcy to the area.
