The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association of Nigeria, (MACBAN) has alleged that the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the United States connived with some southern leaders to indict wanted police officer, Abba Kyari, a report by Daily Independent has revealed.
MACBAN while reacting to news of Abba Kyari’s involvement in a $1.1million fraud according to the FBI, also condemned the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) for failing to speak up against the arrest warrant on the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP).
According to the National President of MACBAN, Dr Garus Gololo, at the weekend in Abuja, “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 regretted that while the US and some elements in the South of Nigeria have connived to persecute “shining stars from the region, stakeholders in the north have remained silent amid the crisis.”
Gololo also condemned allegations of Human Rights abuses against former Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buraitai, adding that “once they see that you’re a shining star, and that you’re from the North, they will want to finish you completely.”
“The United States is the most dis-honest country in the world. What they are doing to Kyari, they did it to 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,” the MACBAN National President insisted.
