In a statement on Friday, the National Secretary of the group, Saleh Alhassan, alleged that Akeredolu created the Western Nigeria Security Network, also known as Amotekun, to kill the herders and northerners living in the South-West.

He warned warned that Akeredolu would be held responsible for anything that happens to Northerners and herders residing in the region.

“Akeredolu created an ethnic militia (Amotekun) that is now unleashing terror and mayhem on innocent herders and northerners living in the South-West against unconstitutional and blanket eviction notices for herders to vacate places where they earn their livelihoods (sic).

“Akeredolu will be held accountable for the ongoing genocide against innocent pastoralists and northerners living in the South-West,” he said.

Alhassan called for calm among his people, assuring them that efforts were ongoing to proffer a permanent solution to the challenges.

He urged state governments to quit enacting laws that will widen cracks in the unity of Nigeria, but rather promote steps that will further strengthen the fragile peace and unity in Nigeria.

KanyiDaily recalls that Akeredolu had last month issued a seven-day quit notice to the herdsmen operating illegally in the state’s forest reserves.

The governor also banned underage grazing, night grazing, and movement of cattle within cities in the state and on highways.

The issue generated an uproar and after a meeting with different stakeholders, Akeredolu asked herdsmen to register with the government so that they can operate unhindered in the forest reserves.

Meanwhile, Miyetti Allah had vowed to resist any attempt to evict herders from the South-West, adding that the group will avenge the alleged attacks and killings of Fulani herdsmen in the region.
