"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.
