The Chairman of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, Plateau State branch, Mallam Nuru Abdullahi, has said that herdsmen would be forced to defend themselves if no efforts were made to curtail the new wave of cow theft and killing of herdsmen in the state.

Abdullahi said that in the last few weeks about 1,600 cows were stolen while five herdsmen were killed by suspected cow rustlers.


Speaking in Jos on Monday, Abdullahi said that just on Sunday, a herdsman was killed in Barkin Ladi and about 36 cows stolen from him.

Abdullahi said, “We are just on the way to bury the latest victim. He was killed on Sunday by some suspected youths and about 36 cows of his stolen. We have petitioned the governor and have asked that he should take steps to forestall a recurrence.”
