The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammed Sa’ ad Abubakar III, is not happy with the involvement of some Fulanis in banditry and kidnapping, as according to him, it is giving a bad name to the entire Fulani stock in the country, IgbereTV reports
The Sultan who is also the President-General, Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) made the observation on Saturday at the inauguration and swearing-in of the new national executive officers of Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) held at the National Mosque, Abuja.
He challenged the group to help find a lasting solution to the issue of banditry and kidnapping in the country.
