Mohammed Adamu, the acting Inspector General of Police, has denied the allegation that the Federal Government offered to pay Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria (MACBAN), N100 billion to shun kidnapping in the country. The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA) had frowned at a report of an alleged plan by the Federal Government to appease MACBAN with N100 billion to set up cattle ranches for their livestock, describing the action as a constitutional crime.
The IG said the need for such agreement between the Federal Government and Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, MACBAN did not arise if kidnapping in the country was to be tackled. He said that the report was the figment of somebody’s imagination framed up to distract attention.
“There was nothing like that. There was no any discussion to that effect. The source of the information, nobody knows; and certainly it is not from government. It is somebody’s imagination that just came up to distract attention,’’ Adamu said.
