Fulani Group Hands Over Kidnappers to Police in Taraba


The leadership of Miyyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) in Taraba state has arrested and handed over 11 suspected kidnappers to police operatives in the state.

Six among the  kidnappers have purportedly repented and sworn the Holy Qur'an in Taraba State, promising not to engage in kidnapping and cattle rustling again.

The suspects were handed over to the state's police commissioner, Abimbola Sokoya, at Maraban Kunini, Lau Local Government Area during the formal inauguration of a 16-man committee set up by the association to tackle criminal activities in Taraba.

MACBAN Chairman Sahabi Tukur, who handed over 11 other kidnappers to the Police, said that the committee was set up in response to a pledge his group had made before the Emir of Muri Abbas Tafida and state commissioner of police that they would expose criminal elements among them.

He said the committee members, drawn from all the Fulani clans in the state, would work along with Police and other security agents in all the 16 local government areas of the state to fish out kidnappers and other criminals.

Commending MACBAN members in the state, the state's police commissioner thanked them for their resolve to address kidnapping and other crimes being perpetrated by bad eggs among them.

Sokoya also called for a collaborative effort between Adamawa, Benue, and Taraba states in tackling kidnapping and other criminals activities.
