Aare Gani Adams, The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, expressed worries over the proposed N100 billion funds allegedly allocated to Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN).
The Aare Onakakanfo in a statement and a copy sent to RipplesNigeria on Sunday, said such allocation would further encourage additional pressure groups across the country to spring up.
While advising that such funds can be channeled to other lucrative areas, also noting that the proposed Miyetti Allah N100 billion was much higher than the total budget for the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) for three years.
He also advised that avoidable crisis would be trigged across all the zones in the country.
Aare Gani Adams said: “The issue at stake is about the spate of insecurity across the nation. It is not limited to the North. Therefore, the Federal Government needs to be cautious on the move. Here in the South West, the spate of insecurity is raging.
“For instance, in Akokoland, in Ondo State, which happens to be my hometown, there were series of attacks and kidnapping that had been raging and still on the increase. People have been killed, and kidnapped at will, and the situation continues till the present moment.
“Last year, Chief Olu Falae’s farm was invaded and destroyed by some herdsmen; Chief Alani Akinrinade also suffered the same fate. In Ijebu Ode, Ogun State, a prominent Yoruba son lost several millions to the activities of these killer herdsmen. Several other people in the South-West had had the bitter experience.”
