Nobody Can Force Us Out Of South-West, Miyetti Allah Says

"Our number has increased recently because of the tension in Ghana and Benin republics. The Benin Republic ones have integrated with the Yoruba in such a way that they speak the language. They were initially living in the South-West, and they are coming back," he added.

Saleh described the eviction notice to herders as propaganda, adding that "innocent" herders were becoming the casualties.

He said, "They expected a reaction from us, maybe by way of attacking other ethnic nationalities. But that is wrong because the herders they are attacking are the innocent herders. Are the criminals representing anybody? They are doing their criminal enterprise. Our pain is that the people who are supposed to know are pretending as if they don't know."

Saleh also asked governors to provide land for ranching for the herders as a solution to the ongoing crisis, adding that herders' eviction would only lead to wider consequences.

Similarly, Miyetti Allah's leaders in some states in the South-East and South-South geopolitical zones have said they are not ready to leave the regions anytime soon.

On Friday, the Northern Elders Forum called on herdsmen feeling unsafe in the southern region of the country to relocate to the North.
