Miyetti Allah establishes 55-member legal team to address alleged injustices against herdsmen

In response to what it perceives as the unjust detention of Fulani herdsmen in various correctional facilities across the nation, the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore Fulani Socio-cultural Association has announced the formation of a 55-member legal team.

The primary aim of this legal team is to advocate for the release of herdsmen who are presently serving jail sentences, a development that has raised concerns within the association.

Alhaji Abdullahi Bodejo, the National President of the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore Fulani Socio-cultural Association, made this revelation during the association’s annual general meeting held in the Karu Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.

Bodejo clarified that the pervasive notion branding all Fulani herdsmen as inherently criminal is inaccurate. He emphasized that these appointed lawyers have been tasked by the association to provide legal support to any herdsmen who have been unfairly incarcerated.

Bodejo implored fellow Fulani kinsmen to prioritize peaceful coexistence with their fellow Nigerians in order to sidestep potential confrontations with law enforcement agencies.

He further stressed that individuals who intentionally engage in activities that disrupt the peace of the nation and subsequently find themselves in police custody will not receive legal assistance from the association.

Bodejo reiterated the association’s commitment to non-violence, asserting its belief in the preservation of Nigeria’s peace and unity. He made it clear that the association will not extend legal aid to any of its members who intentionally foment trouble.
