THE Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria, MACBAN, South-East zone, has explained that its interest in the zone is purely economic not domination.

MACBAN in the zone, Alhaji Gidado Siddiki, who gave the explanation Monday after a meeting of the joint executive council of the group in Enugu, said that the explanation became necessary following growing suspicion and speculation in some quarters.

Sidiki said that the thinking that their interests in the zone were beyond economic pursuits was wrong, insisting that they are in the South East only to do their business of cow selling.

According to him, the suspicion that the herdsmen were aiding and abetting Fulani territorial expansionism was not true, saying such suspicion has created unhealthy relationships in most parts of the South East region, which he said has made their members uncomfortable.
