The group lamented the unfair treatment of their people by the host community.
The Secretary of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, Plateau State chapter, Mohammad Nura, has called on the Nigerian Police to prosecute those behind the recent attack launched against people in Bokkos Local Government Area in which over 20 people, including an 80-year-old woman, were killed.
The cattle breeders made the appeal in a letter to the Commissioner of Police in the state, copying the Inspector General of Police and other heads of the nation’s security agencies.
According to the copy made available to news men in Jos, the association noted that some persons suspected to be the masterminds of the Bokkos killing have already been arrested by security agents. It, however, added that immediate and effective prosecution of the suspects could serve as a deterrent to others nursing such ambitions.
