The Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association Of Nigeria has distanced itself from a statement credited to MACBAN, in which a 72-hour ultimatum was issued to Delta State to reverse its laws on open grazing.

According to the Secretary-General of MACBAN, Usman Baba-Ngelzerma, such a statement by faceless individuals is only meant to create mischief.

Baba-Ngelzerma said MACBAN is a responsible association with eminent personalities like the Sultan of Sokoto as its patron and as such will never do anything to jeopardise the peace of the country.
