The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria sometimes (MACBAN) has rejected the proposed amnesty for killer herdsmen, cattle rustlers, and bandits.

The Bauchi State secretary of the association, Sadiq Ibrahim Ahmad, said the move would only attract more criminals.

“Government should allow the law to take its full course. Let them serve their jail terms – even if it is a life sentence – They are bad eggs.”

He spoke during a chat with reporters after a stakeholders’ meeting with the state commissioner of police, Habu Sani, yesterday in Bauchi.
