Herders Call for Apology from Nigerian Air Force Over Accidental Bombing

Cattle herders in Nigeria have called for an unreserved apology following accidental airstrikes by the Nigerian Air Force in Nasarawa leading to the death of 47, and multiple injuries sustained by scores of its members.

The Coalition of Pastoralists Association – an umbrella organisation of pastoralists’ groups in Nigeria accused the military of carrying out similar airstrikes on unarmed herders in Keana and Awe in Doma local government area of Nasarawa State.

They added that soldiers last year killed their members in Kaduna.

While addressing newsmen on Tuesday in Abuja on behalf of the Coalition, the National President of the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria(MACBAN), Baba Ngelzarma; Vice President, Tabbital Pulaaku International Nigeria Chapter, Auwal Googa; Secretary, Farmers and Hunters Initiative for Peace and Development, Musa Usman among others slammed the military, federal, and Benue State governments for their failure to commiserate with the family of the deceased a week after the ill-fated incident.
