Miyetti Allah reacts to killing of Enugu Catholic Priest by Fulani Herdsmen

The Miyetti-Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) has reacted to the killing of a Catholic Priest in Enugu state by Fulani Herdsmen.

The group claims that Fulani herdsmen were not responsible for Thursday’s killing of the Catholic priest of St James the Greater Parish, Ugbawka, Enugu state, Father Paul Offu.

The group said it was part of security and peace committee in Enugu state, hence it was bound to control its members and ensures that criminals do not infiltrate its members conducting their business of cow rearing.

Chairman of MACBAN in South East, Alhaji Giddado Siddiki in a statement on Saturday said: “Again our hearts bleed over the most dastardly murder of a Catholic priest, Reverend Father Paul Offu, of the Catholic Diocese of Enugu.

“This is one murder too many! It is most condemnable and heartily regretted.”

“Again our society aches as a result of the activities of criminals who care less about the value of human life. It is painful that the security apparatuses of the government have not been able to contain the excesses of these men of the underworld who have continued to diminish the value of life in our society.”

“We hereby most heartily condole the members of the Catholic Diocese of Enugu and all the Christian faithful on this very painful and irreparable loss.”

“We once more call on the government to rise to the occasion and provide adequate security for the citizens of Nigeria across the length and breadth of the country.”

“We maintain that crime, in whatever form of its perpetration, is anti-society. Criminals of any guise cause pains to society and should, therefore, be properly identified and made to face the full wrath of the law.”

“While we mourn the sudden departure of Father Offu, we are very hopeful that this occasion will agitate the government sufficiently to respond to the challenge of criminality amongst us.”

“Please let all of us be duly consoled. May God receive the soul of His dutiful servant in Paradise.”
