The Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore Association has said that the order of President Muhammadu Buhari to security agencies to shoot anyone seen with AK-47 rifles also affects “Amotekun”
The association added that it does not have any problem with the order because its herders do not carry AK-47 rifles.
Alhassan said, “First and foremost, our members don’t carry AK-47 riles.
So, if the President who is the Commander-in-Chief and whose responsibility it is to ensure law and order in the country, has given a directive, we should comply.
Even those who got licences, the licenses are just for dane guns.”
“Everyone, including vigilantes and Amotekun; Since they started going after herdsmen in South-West, have they arrested anybody or have they killed anybody in the forests? At least, we should see their corpses. They are just displacing innocent herders.
“Amotekun officials should by this order stop carrying AK-47 rifles. He stated
