The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, (MACBAN) has accused the Southern Leaders to persecute embattled Nigerian ‘super cop’ Abba Kyari.
The group aslo said it was shameful that the northern Elders were quiet while the US and some elements in Southern Nigeria were conniving to persecute “shining stars” in the North.
Recall that the United States Attorney’s Office, Central District of California, had issued an arrest warrant against Kyari for his alleged links to the suspected fraudster, Hushpuppi, who is standing trial for various offences that include internet fraud and money laundering.
However, speaking during the weekend, National President of MACBAN, Dr Garus Gololo said NEF has failed in its main responsibility of protecting the interest of the North.
Gololo alleged that same treatment being meted out to Kyari was done to former Chairmen of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Lamorde and Ibrahim Magu and a former member of the House of Representatives and Chairman of the House Committee on Petroleum, Farouk Lawan.
He said while the US through the FBI and some elements in the South of Nigeria have connived to persecute “shining stars from the region using the media”, stakeholders in the North have remained silent amid the crisis.
“It is a shame that the Northern Elders Forum and other groups in the region would fold their hands and watch while sons of the north who have distinguished themselves in different fields are constantly being persecuted and maligned at the height of their careers,” he said.
“The United States is not the most honest country in the world. What they are doing to Kyari, they did it to Donald Trump and Al Gore.
“Let him stand firmly and defend himself because he is Nigeria’s future Inspector General of Police, and he mustn’t allow himself to be rattled.”
