Forget Militants,We Will Protect Refineries And Pipelines–Fulani Herdsmen

By Ikenga Chronicles February 18, 2017

The predominantly Fulani Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association(MACBAN) has offered to help the Federal Government in protecting oil pipelines and refineries.

Comrade Yusuf Usman, who is the North-West zonal youth leader of the group stated this during a a courtesy call to the mangement of Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company(KRPC).

According to the MACBAN youth leader, the group is offering their assistance because of how the issue of pipeline/oil installations vandalization has been affecting their business. The group stated that oil pipe and installations vandalization poisons water, which in turn kills their livestock when the livestock drink from the poisoned water.

“A couple of years ago, some of our cattle drank poisonous water, contaminated by pollution due to emission from vandalized or burst pipelines containing petroleum products and we are living witnesses to the negative consequences of sabotaging or vandalizing KRPC facilities.” Usman said

“The Fulani herdsmen in this part of the country have all these years been one of the neighbours of the KRPC. Our neighbourliness has been very cordial, mutual and peaceful.”

He re-iterated that the Fulani are peaceful people, who only want to protect their interests and the interest of the nation at large.
