Speaking to newsmen yesterday in Makurdi, MAFO leadership, through Dr. Sam Abah, cautioned that Miyetti Allah, as a group, is executing the plot state by state through it murderous activities.
The group said: “Miyetti Allah is plotting a coup against Nigerian states and they are executing the pilot state by state.
“A phenomenon is going on now in the rise of an ethnic group that has no regards for the law. The killings, therefore, are not acts of aggrieved herdsmen, but the handiwork of well-trained, well-paid, well-armed gangs/militia terrorists that act as a standing army of invasion, sponsored by elites to wage war across Nigeria, particularly Benue State.
“The terrorists and their sponsors are not foreigners from Mali, Chad, Niger, Libya and Senegal.
“Rather, the murderers are Nigerians sponsored by Nigerians to kill and destroy Nigeria.”
It urged President Buhari to stand up in defense of Nigerians by declaring Miyetti Allah a terrorist group and also take a step further to proscribe it.
