President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday condoled with the people of Nasarawa State “over the brutal killing of the leaders of the Miyetti Allah who forged a strategic partnership with the government against the menace of bandits and kidnappers.”

Buhari’s condolence message was contained in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, titled, ‘President Buhari mourns Nasarawa Miyetti Allah leaders.’

President Buhari in the statement described the late State leader, Alhaji Mohammed Husaini who was among those murdered “as a beacon of peace for Nasarawa State and the subregion.”

The Chairman of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association (MASSCOB) in Nasarawa State, Alhaji Mohammed Hussain, was shot dead by unknown gunmen suspected to be Fulani herdsmen in Toto Local Government Area of the State.

The leader of the group was killed on Friday night alongside the chairman of the association, Mohammed Umar in Garaku, Kokona LGA on Friday night during an attack.

Buhari, however, calls on Fulani leaders in the state to choose new leaders that will build on the foundation of peace laid by their slain leaders.

He also reiterated the determination of his regime to work with all members of the society to rid the country of terrorists, bandits and kidnappers.

The statement read, “President Muhammadu Buhari condoles with the government and people of Nasarawa State over the brutal killing of the leaders of the Miyetti Allah who forged a strategic partnership with the government against the menace of bandits and kidnappers.

“The President described the late state leader, Alhaji Mohammed Husaini who was among those murdered as a beacon of peace for Nasarawa State and the sub region.

“In praying for the repose of the souls of those killed, President Buhari urged the Fulani leaders in the state to choose new leaders who will build on the foundations of peace set up by the Husaini-led leadership.

“The President reiterated the determination of his administration to work with all members of the society to rid the country of terrorists, bandits and kidnappers.”
