The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MACBAN) also known as the Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore, has advised the federal government not to waste time on the trial of leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
MACBAN Secretary-General, Saleh Alhassan, described Kanu as a terrorist, enemy, and rebel of the Nigerian state, adding that it is good for the country that he was arrested.
He made the comment while speaking to SaharaReporters on Wednesday, in his reaction to the IPOB leader’s rearrest.
“He is a terrorist. He’s an enemy of the state. Is he not a terrorist? How are open grazing and Nnamdi Kanu related? Is there a relationship between a terrorist attacking government institutions and open grazing in the South-East? IPOB is a proscribed organisation.
“A terrorist always has a mission to terrorise people. How can someone be defending his territories inside a sovereign state? Is that not a rebel? And, a rebel is an enemy of the state. The state should apply maximum force on him. They should not waste time with long trials. They should prosecute him for the killing of policemen, killing of innocent people, and destroying means of livelihood.
“That they have arrested him is a good development for the country but they should not waste time about his trial. He is a terrorist.
“This also shows that our foreign relations with other countries are working. I don’t care whether he was arrested in the United Kingdom or not, the fact that the country where he was arrested cooperated with our country is a good development,” Alhassan said.
