MACBAN Leader Killed In Adamawa State By Unknown Gunmen
A leader of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), Adamawa South Chapter, Saidu Kolaku, has been gunned down.
Kolaku’s killing was confirmed by the police spokesperson in Adamawa State, Sulaiman Nguroje, on Sunday.
The MACBAN zonal vice chairman in Adamawa South was killed by yet to be identified gunmen on Saturday.
Confirming the incident to newsmen, Nguroje said: “Unknown gunmen stormed the resident of the Fulani leader located at Sabon Pegi in Mayo Belwa local government, shot him and left him in the pool of his blood.
“Following the incident, a distress call was forwarded to the police who rushed to the scene and took the victim to the hospital where he was confirmed dead by the doctor on duty.
“Indeed, police received the death of the slain man with shock because of his invaluable contribution towards fighting crime and criminality especially his gallantry in the fight against kidnappers.
“The command has launched manhunt for the fleeing culprits and God’s willing, they will be tracked down and brought to justice,” he said.
The Adamawa State chapter of Miyetti Allah has described Kolaku’s killing as a possible reprisal attack for exposing criminality in the state.
“Efforts of Kolaku in fighting crime had made the police command to honour him on 17th July 2019, for his gallantry and valiant exploits in fighting kidnappers and cattle rustlers rampaging the state,” said MACBAN’s Public Relations Officer in the state, Muhammad Buba.
“It’s unfortunate that the death of our zonal leader will seriously undermine the fight against crime and criminality in the state, “he said.
