Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Ade­lanwa Bamg­boye

The Miyetti Al­lah Cat­tle Breed­ers As­so­ci­a­tion of Nige­ria (MACBAN) has con­demned the mur­der of the para­mount ruler of the Ron peo­ple of Bokkos LGA in Plateau State, Saf Ronkurene, Lazarus Agai.

The as­so­ci­a­tion in a state­ment in Abuja yes­ter­day signed by its Sec­re­tary Al­haji Baba Oth­man Ngelzarma, ex­pressed sad­ness over the act, say­ing that there was mu­tual re­spect and un­der­stand­ing be­tween MACBAN and the peo­ple of Bokkos through­out the reign of the late para­mount ruler.

“Our as­so­ci­a­tion found it ex­pe­di­ent to join mil­lions of Plateau in­di­genes and other Nige­ri­ans to ex­press our deep­est sym­pa­thy with the gov­ern­ment and peo­ple of Plateau State, in par­tic­u­lar the good peo­ple of Bokkos LGA and the im­me­di­ate fam­ily of the late para­mount ruler on this un­for­tu­nate in­ci­dent”, MACBAN said.

MACBAN said that it re­gret­ted the at­tempt by some sec­tions of the me­dia to ap­por­tion blame on its mem­bers for the act, even be­fore in­ves­ti­ga­tion on the mat­ter, and ap­pealed to the rel­e­vant se­cu­rity agen­cies to fish out the mur­der­ers and bring them to Jus­tice.
